What is new in the world of denim? Well, the guys have had their day and now it is the girls’ turn. Girlfriend jeans are the newest entrants into the jean game for Spring 2015 but what exactly are girlfriend jeans and why do we need them? Girlfriend jeans have a more classic fit and sit higher on the hip (think more comfort/less sliding down) and have a tapered slim straight leg. Basically, they offer a more refined and flattering shape than boyfriend jeans, perfect for when you are looking for a more classic, less slouchy silhouette. Don’t worry about needing to give up your uber-comfortable boyfriend (jeans, that is) though, as they are still trending for Spring 2015 including soon-to-be new favorites such moto, tuxedo striped and ankle cropped styles. Be sure to check out the styles shown above at www.hm.com and www.whitehouseblackmarket.com.
