MUST HAVE JEANS FOR SPRING SUMMER 2012
April 16, 2012
Adding a new pair of jeans into our closet doesn't have to be stressful. There are so many choices from colour, to wash, to fabric, it's actually quite easy. The only thing you may want to consider is whether you want to have one of the must have jeans for the season in your collection or not.
Body Blue boutique owner Sam Nirenberg takes us through the must have jeans for Spring - Summer 2012 and the key trend we will see for Fall.
1. Skinny Boyfriend Trouser
"The three must have jean styles are skinny, trouser and boyfriend. Hudson, Sanctuary and Paige are the most popular in the skinny style. Fidelity is tops in the trouser style and the boyfriend is Citizens of Humanity and AG."

2. Coral Purple Red White
"Colour is still in vogue with white making a comeback." This summer corals, reds and purples reign supreme with white making a very quiet comeback.
3. Floral Aztec
Printed jeans are key this season especially floral and aztec. "When introducing a colour or print choose a top that is neutral in colour. If you are brave try pattern on pattern or colour on colour. To do so choose a top with the main colour running through it for a cohesive look."

"The classic clean dark blue jean with no stress or rips is still the best selling jean." Always ensure that you have this as a fallback when you don't want to worry about having to wear a trend.
5. Three or Four
"Don't buy jeans unless you are going to wear them. We all have tons of jeans in our wardrobe, including me, but we only wear three or four of them. I say, remember those three pairs, how they fit and feel and buy new pairs based on that. And always leave about one hour when going to try on new jeans."
6. Kick It
The key style for Fall is the skinny with a kick flare, Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss are sporting the skinny kick flare. It's the perfect jean for those with hips as it balances out the silhouette.
