Spring Jeans: 3 trends to ditch and what to buy
I just love a great cross-body bag. What's with the handbag intro you might ask,since this little style tidbit is supposed to be about what hot new denim trends you should embrace this season and which styles you won't be caught dead in, unless you are out of clean laundry and it is past midnight and you need to make an emergency run to the local 24 hour grocery because you are out of Chunky Monkey. But I digress...
Anyhoo, as I mentioned, I just love a great cross-body handbag — a gorgeous little confection just the right size for all my girly goodies, plus the ease and comfort of just tossing it over my shoulder and across my body for complete hands-free lifestyle functioning! What could possibly be more fabulous than that? Well, apparently not slamming the strap of said gorgeous cross-body bag in the car door and dragging it for twenty freaking miles in the rain! Sheesh! You'd think I would have learned my slamming-lovely-clothing-and-accessory-items-in-the-car-door lesson a few hundred dollars ago wouldn't you? Apparently you would be wrong...
Luckily it was just the strap (albeit a lovely hand-tooled leather strap) and said strap was detachable, which made it fairly simple to replace. A little research and a trip to the horsey-suburbs and an equestrian supply store was all it took! And I also put my multitasking skills to use during the thirty minutes it took them to stitch up a new strap by doing a little fashion recon on the best jeans for spring from our friends at Glamour!
Trends to ditch:
- Stretchy, legging-like fits
- Restrictive ankle cuts
- Cheap and easy distressing
What jeans to buy:
1.Rigid, vintage inspired denim:
The structured fit is a fresh and flattering alternative to the paper-thin stretchy fabric that has dominated the shelves for years. And let's face it, no one really wants every dimple and ripple on display now, right? Look for classic brands like Levi's, Lee and AG Jeans, as well as up-and-coming brands like Khaite.
Put your personal style on these jeans by pairing them with a silky-luxe cashmere striped top and a pair of chunky sandals.
2. Wide-leg and boot-cut hems:
While a slim-cut jean will never go out of style, if you are eager to try something a bit different this season look for bigger, breezier hems. Ultra-wide legs, sassy cropped flares, 70's style bells and modern boot-cut silhouettes are the way to go this year.
Flares and wide leg jeans look great with a fitted tee or tailored top and a great pair of funky heels or summer slides.
3. White, ivory and sand colored jeans
Hard-earned fading is one thing, but we're tired of the machine-made, dialed-in distressing that you see on every other pair of jeans. This year, break in a pair yourself! Earn those faded knees and frayed cuffs with picnics on the beach, bike rides through the meadows and a great music festival or three! Or for something entirely new, go for a pair in a hard white, not-quite-white or an earthy hue.
The best thing about these neutral jeans is that they will go with absolutely everything in your closet! They will also look spectacular later this fall with an oversize black sweater and a pair of black moto boots.
Well, there you go! That should get you started on the right track to spring denim style! But hang on to your skinny jeans — a classic slim-cut jean will never go out of style, but this season is a great time to show a little denim attitude.

Celebrate Earth Day with Karité Shea Butter!
“Eco-conscious” isn't just a trendy buzzword, and it’s more important than ever to be mindful of the impact our consumption has on the planet. In addition to being dermatologist-developed and safe for sensitive skin, Karité Shea Butter Crème Mains hand cream was also created with Mother Earth in mind.
Committed to treating every day like Earth Day, Karité starts with selecting high-quality ingredients that have a low impact on the environment—and uses fully recyclable packaging.
- Raw, unrefined shea butter: Processing shea butter does more than reduce the concentrations of its most beneficial compounds. It also requires energy that produces emissions that harm the atmosphere. Karité only uses raw, unrefined shea butter that is extracted through a simple, traditional process that involves cleaning, drying, crushing and milling the nuts into a paste before mixing with purified water and cooling.
- Organic coconut oil: By using organic coconut oil, Karité helps keep chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides out of the soil and water supply.
- Sustainably-sourced palm oil: Karite’s palm oil is harvested without depleting natural resources while maintaining the balance of the natural ecosystem and promoting growth through new plantings.
Karité Shea Butter is a proud member of the Global Shea Alliance (GSA). Based in Ghana, this non-profit organization works to promote sustainability, quality practices and industry standards. The GSA helps promote fair trade and support the hundreds of thousands of African villages that participate in the shea industry. With 16 million rural women harvesting nearly all the shea butter from Africa, the organization’s efforts also ensure they have the food security, basic healthcare and education they need.
