Colored jeans, High Rise and Button Fly
There is no one who loves getting dressed up in a beautiful elegant dress more than I. However, practicality rules. And nothing is more practical than denim jeans. All of the fashion writers for fall and winter are stating; "They are back!" I never knew they went anywhere.
The problem with just any pair of jeans is that with no thought to style, they can look like you are starting a project in the garage or going for a ride on the Harley. Not that there is anything wrong with those activities - For me feminine rules.
Colored jeans are a new item for me and I really like the look of the jeans on the left; LEE Monroe Straight Jeans. My go-to everyday jeans are in the center and yes, they are the same style. The color on left jeans is Antler, and the center jeans is Seattle. Don't like these two colors - there are 27 other colors.
Here are the wonderful sweet spots that hit for me: Relaxed fit yet snug fitting in the back to give some rear definition. Slim through the legs but easy on-off. "High Rise / High Waisted", so no muffin top and feminine cut.

The third trend that I adore is "button fly"; again in high rise. I have not seen too many of these in years past, however this fall they are everywhere. They tend to have a form fitting front and back, thus definitely not "your father's jeans". These require a little effort to get the right fit but worth it as to the feminine differential.
Here is the Amazon link for these Jeans: Jag Jeans Women's Gwen Button Fly Straight Jean. Levi jeans have always had a selection of "button fly", so do check there as well.
The one other trend that I just love that is a consistent fashion Feminine Differential - Heels with Jeans. Here is what the fashion blog "Refinery29" stated:
|Glam and Glitter - Jeans and Heels|
It's Look Like A Fashion Person 101: Wear a pair of single-soled pumps with a pair of well-loved jeans, and you're set. It almost doesn't matter what you have on top; with a ratty T-shirt or a couture blouse, the combination of jeans and pumps gives your outfit a 'on my way to a fashion show' verve.
