Style Guide: 5 Denim Must-Haves for Winter

Hey ladies! It’s Anna from Fash Boulevard again. When it comes to winter essentials there are few things more sartorially crucial than a great pair of jeans. Sure, a gush-worthy trench or show-stopping blanket scarf will always demand attention, but it’s hard to imagine a head-to-toe winter look without the perfect pair of jeans. From rise, to wash, to silhouette, there are dozens of options when it comes to denim. To help narrow down the search, I’ve compiled my five favorite styles for winter below. Take a peek!

Boyfriend Jeans:

Why boyfriend jeans should be incorporated into your winter wardrobe...

No, I’m not talking about your actual boyfriend’s jeans, although I have seen some ladies pull off the barrowed-denim-look before. When searching for this style, it’s important to find a waistline and rise that is most flattering to your body. I always suggest counter balancing the masculinity of this style with heels or a heeled ankle boot.

White Denim:

Tis the season for white denim...

I’ve always been a fan of white during winter months and this celebrity favorite style provides a classic and fresh jumping-off point for a crisp winter ensemble. To really make your white denim pop, be sure to pair it with the season’s warm tones, like blush, cranberry, and mustard yellow.

We're big fans of white denim all year round.

Skinny Jeans:

This one is a no-brainer. For yet another year, the skinny jean remains the #1 top seller in denim styles and it’s easy to see why… The fail-proof skinny jeans are your boots’ best friend. The no-fuss legs make for an ideal and comfy fit for all of your favorite winter footwear.

Flared Denim:

The 70's silhouette is back and all the rage this season!

Poncho – Forever 21, Denim – Paige Denim, Handbag – Prima Donna, Heels – Target

The 70’s silhouette is back and all the rage this season. The thing I love most about this 2015 iteration is that the silhouette demands a true “look”. When you style flared denim, it’s hard not to embrace the full 70’s spirit. Try pairing them with an ultra-fitted top or playing with volume by enhancing the fluidity with an oversized poncho.

We love flared denim!

Black Denim:

Embrace black denim.

Cape – NastyGal, Top – Aqua, Denim – AG, Heels – ShoeDazzle (similar here)

This is the first season I’ve really embraced black denim, and boy am I glad I finally caved. If you’re looking for pants that are comfy and dressy, then this is the style for you. Black denim can look classic, professional, and super chic.
