Hi, my name is Heather and I’m a denim addict, how about you?  If you’ve been following my blog for a while now or if you subscribe to my YouTube channel then you probably already know that and if I had to guess I bet you love jeans too! Well, if you do then you’ve come to the right spot.  In today’s blog post I’m sharing 4 style tips to keep in mind when wearing 2021’s biggest denim trend: THE NON-SKINNY JEAN.  If you’re wondering what some of the other big denim trends are feel free to check out these 2 denim videos I published recently on YouTube titled: BEST DENIM FOR WOMEN OVER 40 and the TOP DENIM TRENDS IN 2021.  When I’m styling non-skinny jeans I try and keep the following 5 key tips in mind so that I can look like the best version of myself when wearing this denim trend.  Keep scrolling to check out all 5 tips as well as the 4 different types of non-skinny jeans and how to wear them.

LIFE TIP: I always set goals for myself in my personal life as well as in my professional life.  It helps motivate me to stay focused and on track and I just feel like it helps me be the best version of myself.  One of my most recent business goals is to reach 40K subscribers by my 2-year anniversary date on YouTube which is March 21.  I only have a few hundred to go so if you haven’t already subscribed to my channel I would greatly appreciate it if you did now by clicking HERE.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you for allowing me to do what I love so much every single day which is empowering women just like YOU to look and feel like the best versions of themselves!

 

HOW TO WEAR NON-SKINNY JEANS:

 

1. ALWAYS TUCK IN YOUR SHIRT:

Tucking in your shirt will allow you to accentuate your waist and create a balanced look that is proportional.  Think about it, if you didn’t tuck in your shirt you wouldn’t be showing your waistline which is one of the benefits of wearing high-waisted denim.  If your waist is one of your challenge areas then I suggest doing the half-tuck, this will still allow you to create a waistline even if you don’t have one.  The worst thing you can do is wear an over-sized top untucked with non-skinny jeans because this will create bulk as well as a look that just isn’t flattering.

MOTHER JEANS:

Calling all denim lovers! These jeans by Mother are hands down some of my favorites of all time. I love the high-waisted, straight leg style, and if you’ve been around a while, you probably know that’s my preferred style of denim! The light distressing and light wash make these jeans so good for spring and summer but can certainly be worn all year round. They run true to size, I’m wearing a size 25.

 

ARMY JACKET:

Who doesn’t love a chic army jacket like this one? Versatile, neutral, and edgy, an army jacket can take you so many places and can be styled so many ways. I really love the lightly fringed hem at the bottom of the jacket giving it a little bit of detail and uniqueness, too! If you’re in need of a new army jacket, I highly recommend investing in this one and it can be worn year round! It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.

2. WEAR A BELT:

Adding a belt when wearing non-skinny jeans is a sure-fire way to elevate your look and it will make you look taller and slimmer too.  Again, back to tip number one, accentuating your waistline when wearing a high-waisted non-skinny jean is the whole point, and adding a belt will do just that.

3. PAIR THEM WITH A BODYSUIT:

 

You all know that I’m literally obsessed with bodysuits because they do a great job of staying tucked in and they’re the perfect type of top to wear with non-skinny jeans.  Since bodysuits are one-piece obviously you must tuck them in which again creates a very slimming and balanced look when paired with non-skinny jeans like these amazing jeans by Moussy.  These are one of my top 3 favorite pairs of jeans hanging in my closet and for good reason!

 

FREE PEOPLE BODYSUIT:

This tastefully sexy bodysuit by Free People is one I wear on repeat when I’m going on a date night or GNO! This exact blue shade is almost sold out, however, it comes in tons of colors and all of them are amazing. I also linked a ton of my favorite bodysuits above that I love and all of them would pair well with non-skinny jeans. This bodysuit runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.

 

MOUSSY JEANS:

Another denim fave! I love these vintage-inspired jeans by Moussy so much that they were recently featured in my YouTube video titled BEST DENIM FOR WOMEN OVER 40. I love the baggier, oversized denim style because they’re just fun and a bit more edgy! I also think they look better on women over 40 than skinny jeans. They run true to size, I’m wearing 25.

4. ALWAYS OPT FOR A HEEL:

 

Even if you wear a lowish heel or a block heel or even a wedge any heel makes non-skinny jeans look so much better!  I love wearing mules, mainly because they are the most comfortable type of heel to wear.  Wearing heels with non-skinny jeans will make you look taller and slimmer because they will elongate you legs which is always a plus.  If these mules are too high for you, I love these and these, both have a much lower heel height but would still pair well with the non-skinny jean silhouette.

IVORY JEANS:

I already know I’ll be wearing these ivory jeans on repeat this spring and summer because they’re just perfect for the upcoming seasons! I love the high-rise, straight leg style that’s so on-trend for 2021. In case you missed it, I recently featured white denim styled 10 ways on my YouTube, so be sure to check out the video! These jeans run true to size, I’m wearing a 25.

5. ALWAYS ADD A THIRD LAYER:

 

Adding a third layer when wearing non-skinny jeans will not only create a balanced and flattering ensemble but will also add a bit of interest to your look.  The only thing to consider when adding a third layer with non-skinny jeans is to make sure you wear a top or bodysuit that is form-fitting so that you won’t create more bulk.  Whether you decide to add a comfy cardigan, a cool army jacket, or a glamorous faux-fur jacket I guarantee adding a third layer to any non-skinny jean outfit will take it to the next level!

 

AGOLDE 90’S JEANS:

 

I have to admit, I’m a true denim lover and always have been. I sincerely believe every woman looks amazing in denim if they’re the right style! These Agolde 90’s loose fit jeans are some of my very favorites to date and the IT style of denim in 2021. These do run a bit big, so I highly recommend sizing down 2 sizes, I’m wearing a 23.

IVORY CARDIGAN:

Say hello to your new favorite cardigan for spring and summer! This cardi is so soft and lightweight making it the perfect cardigan for warmer weather! I love the cream for spring making it versatile and wearable. I featured this exact piece in my recent blog post titled 4 WAYS TO STYLE A SPRING CARDIGAN so make sure to check it out! If this one is out of your budget, no worries, I love this cardigan just as much and it looks almost identical! It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
