My love for denim runs deep. I am the kind of weirdo—I imply, particular person—who would not take off her denims and throw on sweats instantly upon returning house and who truly chooses to put on denims to hang around across the house (a first-class offense based on some, however completely regular based on me).
Even after a current closet clean-out, I nonetheless personal over a dozen pairs of denims, and if there’s one factor I’ve realized from denim purchasing through the years, it is that not all pairs are created equal. Extra importantly, not all pairs match everyone equally. Standard L.A. model PAIGE is getting down to change that with its newly launched Flaunt assortment, and I merely could not preserve the information to myself. The road is all about perfecting the waist-to-hip ratio for girls blessed with hourglass figures, so naturally, I tapped two of my favourite style insiders to strive them out and report again. Under, Rahel Brhane and Vanessa Romo put the denims to the take a look at whereas styling them with their favourite fall items.
Like many ladies, Brhane used to get so annoyed whereas looking for denim. “Conventional 100%-cotton denims would all the time give me a ridiculous hole within the waist space, and I believed that denims had been simply not meant for me,” she says. “I usually needed to accept jeggings because the closest factor to precise denims. Fortunately, manufacturers like PAIGE have began to take suggestions from their prospects and make denims for several types of our bodies.”
She now not fears what was as soon as a frightening job. When looking for denim now, Brhane says it is all concerning the match. “Since I used to be blessed with fuller hips and thighs however a smaller waist, I want to make sure that denims hug my hourglass determine with out giving me the notorious hole within the waist space. My go-tos are high-waisted or ultra-high-rise kinds.”
When styling this look that includes the light-wash Femme denims (my private favourite from the gathering, ICYWW), Brhane needed to create the proper on a regular basis look. “I all the time discover myself leaving my home within the morning and never coming again till it is late, so when styling the denims, I needed to create the proper fall search for operating errands round town and assembly for dinner proper after,” she tells me. “I paired the denims with a black sweater with stunning flared cuffs, a leather-based jacket, and chunky boots. On the subject of styling high-rise denims, my tip is all the time to tuck the highest into the denims. By doing so, your form will get enhanced, and you’ll see how properly the denims match. Did I nail it, or did I nail it?” I feel I converse for everybody once I say that Brhane did, actually, nail this look.

Romo has confronted related denim challenges. I imply, have not all of us? “It is troublesome to discover a pair that matches properly in all areas, particularly the waist and hips,” she explains. “Generally the waist is ideal, however the hips are so dishevelled. I’ve additionally discovered it almost not possible to seek out well-fitted denims that do not give me a camel toe. It is tough out right here.”
Her denim preferences—past avoiding a camel toe, in fact—differ relying on the outfit she’s styling. “I normally gravitate towards high-waisted kinds as a result of they assist outline my waistline, however for the leg of the pants, I search for one thing completely different, whether or not it is a huge leg, straight leg, or boot reduce,” she says.
I personally do not escape my black denims till about mid-September, so I am excited to get some styling data from Romo, particularly as I, too, have been gravitating towards skinny kinds these days. “I like how mushy and stretchy the denims are. They transfer with my physique so comfortably,” she says. “This outfit is all black and white to create a traditional vibe, and I feel it is excellent for an on a regular basis setting. It might even be worn within the workplace with the highest buttoned up and tucked in.”
