Jeans are such a wardrobe stable that it’s not uncommon for women to have several pairs. We’ll sometimes introduce them when we’re out with friends saying, ‘these are my work-jeans’ or ‘these are the jeans I wear when I pick up the kids from school’, ‘these are the designer jeans I wear on a first date’, ‘these are the jeans I wear with my favorite boots’. It seems like we have a pair of jeans for every occasion. And why not? Denim is as versatile as it is comfortable with styles that fit and flatter.
I was shopping at Fashion Island this week in Newport Beach and noticed a great promotion at True Religion, a designer denim boutique. True Religion is having a back-to-school promotion they will give you a free limited edition t-shirt just for trying on a pair of True Religion Jeans.
The super skinny jeans for women are offered in light- weight fabrics and fun patterns and would look sexy with a mid-height heel. Often termed, ‘jeggings’, these jeans give a more casual vibe and look great on a slim figure.
The skinny jean for women is another very slim look, a bit dressier than the super skinny jean and is available in more traditional washes, such as Indigo, Blue Crow and Primrose Terrace.
I tried the Flare Jean in black; the proportions weren’t quite right for my short legs but the color would look terrific for evening events.
The Boyfriend Jean, the Bootcut Jean and the Straight Leg Jean worked best for my figure and I was having a hard time deciding which I liked the best. True Religion designer jeans are known for being a wardrobe investment piece and with prices around $176 (some are well over $200), I wanted to make sure that the jeans could transition from summer into fall and were in a style that I could wear to work and dress up for a night out.
The staff was really friendly and knowledgeable and they want you to have fun trying on different styles of jeans to get the pair, or pairs you like best. No True Religion store in your area? No problem! You can find selected styles at Macy’s and online at www.truereligion.com.
