Know Your Jeans

Know Your Jeans

By Georgia Brooker, Staff Writer

Mom, boyfriend, and girlfriend oh my! When shopping for jeans it is important to not only know the types of jeans but how they fit. Jeans trends are being created every day, and new fits are becoming popular. Let’s take a look at the newest jean trends!

BOYFRIEND JEANS

These staple jeans are meant to be worn slouchy and relaxed. They are often cropped and may have a few rips and tears. These loose jeans can be worn casually with sneakers or spiced up with heels. If you really want to be bold, go with patched boyfriend jeans and be ahead of the trend. Now at family reunions you can talk about that ‘boyfriend’ everyone asks you about by showing off your new jeans!

RIPPED JEANS

Ripped jeans are not completely new to the fashion world. However, the newest ripped styled jeans are in the knees. This upcoming trend involves jeans with holes in the knees. From little rips to rips down the legs, ripped jeans are another staple for any closet.

 

MOM JEANS

Making jeans your mother would wear a trend? Well you better believe it because this is happening! Mom jeans are easily identified but their very high waist. They not too loose or too tight. You won’t look like a ‘soccer mom’ in these trendy jeans.

GIRLFRIEND JEANS

Girlfriend jeans are a more flattering jean than baggier boyfriend jeans but are similarly cropped. They lay slightly above the waist and are more structured than boyfriend jeans, with straight legs.
