Rachel Zoe Loves Denim, Why Don't You?

by Jaime on October 6, 2009

No, I’m not saying you should aspire to be Rachel Zoe, but when one of the leading stylists in the country tells you to grab a pair of jeans (and that it’s part of her everyday wardrobe!), you better listen.

This is one of her apparel posts (she wrote a darling one about the Current/Elliott Biker Jacket, too!):

I always say one person’s skinny jean is another person’s wide-leg. That is, I know skinny jeans are the go-to for many women, but I want to remind you that wide-leg silhouettes are just as relevant to your wardrobe. I personally gravitate toward said look…they are the foundation in my daily uniform.* There are currently so many flattering styles on the market, but I constantly find myself in 7 For All Mankind’s Ginger Jeans. They are amongst the chosen ones for me :)

Your visual reference for the day…Valerie Bertinelli in One Day At a Time. Take a cue from her classic seventies look by stepping into these dark denim trousers and pairing them with a pretty, tucked-in blouse. With this kind of style, it is important to show off the high-waist to elongate your legs. Ideally, you can invest in two pairs: one to wear with heels and another hemmed for flats—I love when they skim the ground and fray in an oh-so-bohemian way. xoRZ

*Daily Uniform = wide leg denim jeans, long tee, fitted jacket and tranny shoes

Yeah, this post is about a week old, but that doesn’t change its relevancy (of course not, it’s a week.). I try to avoid wearing skinny jeans to work (they just don’t carry a clean enough look, and they’re a bit too body con)… not to say I don’t break my rules, but I prefer the flattering look of a wide leg.

So, while I don’t have a camera available (I’ve attempted to make my phone work, but it kind of failed miserably…), I am wearing a great pair of Paige Premium Denim Abbot Kinney jeans (they were initially released as a Japan exclusive, but you can find a pair or two floating around Overstock).

Love this!

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I discovered it for him smile So allow me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
