Say good bye to your skinny jeans

The most anticipated news in fashion since the end of shoulder pads has just hit. Skinny jeans are on their way out! I have been waiting for this moment since the day the trend started, and my tush and I could not be happier. I have already properly given my thanks to the fashion gods and am now on the search for the perfect flared jean to add to my spring wardrobe.
Washes are on the lighter side this season and the resurgance of seventies style continues right through this spring into fall. One can certainly still wear their skinny jeans but I have a sneaking suspician you will feel much skinnier in your new flares. A boot cut is acceptable too, escpecially if you are on the more petite side. If you are really feeling groovy, a full-out bell-bottom is very on trend and would look great with a relaxed tunic or halter and a pair of platforms.
I'm a big believer in investing in good designer jeans. I wear them so often, the number of dollars spent per wear is way lower than what I spend on a nice dress for a wedding I'll wear once or twice. That being said, Paige Premium Denim has a number of styles that fit this trend as does JBrand and the newest buzzed about Mother brand of jeans. Alas ladies, the time has arrived, you can finally sigh in relief. So get into those fitting rooms, give some thanks (the fashion gods delight in gratitude) and enjoy every proportioned minute in your new flared darlings!
