Flattering Denim Styles

by | Mar 29, 2019 | Denim, Fashion trends | 0 comments

I’ve added a new category to the SHOP page: Denim. As I was telling one client recently, completing the Shop Pages is time consuming because I want to make sure I’m recommending a variety of styles, price points that will flatter many body types. In addition, I don’t want the styles to sell soon after I publish.

And I couldn’t do a post on denim without “walking down memory lane” and showing this Saturday Night Live skit: Mom Jeans. It had been a while since I’ve seen it; it always makes me laugh.

Here is a breakdown on some of the labels before you go to the page. Nordstrom offers price matching with other retailers FREQUENTLY on denim.

Kut from the Kloth: These have been around for the last decade and are still a top favorite among women of all ages. Most of their styles were a mid-rise, but they’ve added a few high rise options. If this is one of your favorites, click around to see the other KUT styles as I’ve included just a few.

Liverpool: I’ve written about this brand before and it honestly has become one of my favorites.

Madewell: I really started promoting these last fall. They are affordable and stylish. If you don’t like the high-rise button front, there are other options.

NYDJ: Not Your Daughter’s Jeans were the first label to really add high rise when most everyone else had a lower to mid-rise. They have had a boot-cut and straight cut for years. They have added skinnier cuts, styles with distressing to stay current with other brands.

Lots of extended size choices with Kut and NYDJ.


It’s a high price point. Some women swear by the higher end labels, others have a hard time paying the premium price for a pair of denim. I like it all, but try to get premium denim on sale or price matched.

Paige: It will probably always be my favorite. The transcend fabric introduced a few years ago really holds its shape. So much variety in rise, wash and style.

AG: I only have had one pair in the past, but last year I added another in a black wash and they have become a “go-to” pair.

J Brand and Rag & Bone. I wore out a pair of J Brand and currently have a pair of Rag & Bone that I wish I had in multiples. That says a lot!

The list goes on with Hudson, Citizen, Frame although none made the Shop page.


Do you have a favorite brand I missed?
