Ways to rock jean in 2012
Denim has been a staple in hip hop clothes, rock and roll and American culture for quite some time and although the style continues to evolve and change with each decade, some old favorites still come out on top. EBONY Magazine recently broke down the most fashion-forward ways to rock denim in 2012.
Girly dresses and skirts
Being classy is making a big comeback in 2012 with everything from fun and sassy jean rompers to cute jean skirts and mini's that can be dressed up with the right accessories or dressed down with a pair of boat shoes from the sneaker store. The great thing about jean material is that its natural blue hue makes it easy to match with many different colors and fabrics. Make your skirt pop with the addition of a bold patterned scarf or other women's urban clothes.
Nothing says summer is here better than a pair of cutoff jean shorts. Although these are most definitely still in for 2012, many ladies within the entertainment industry have also been seen rocking high-waisted jean shorts or ones that flair out a bit. These varieties are not only more flattering for different body types, but work to show a woman's individual fashion sense.
Glamour Magazine reports jean shorts are also a great option for ladies going to concerts or music festivals this summer, as they are both cute and easy to wear. Stars like Rihanna have been known to rock jean shorts paired with a girly bodice top and a military inspired jacket or shirt. Pair this style with boots or a fun pair of flats to look edgy and sweet.
Classic jean button up
This trend is suitable and sexy on both guys and girls. Most people associate button up shirts with the office or being dressed up. However, a jean button up is the complete opposite - this look is comfortable but put together. Teen Vogue Magazine reports ladies can rock a jean shirt right by tying it at the bottom and pairing it with a long skirt. This look is clean while also being sexy due to the peek of skin showing at the midriff. Ladies can also pair a maxi dress with a jean jacket for a classic American feel - perfect for a barbeque or a first date.
EBONY Magazine reports guys can rock a jean shirt with patterned shorts or a pair of Rocawear jeans in a darker hue than the shirt.
