Alter-Nation

Let's discuss the Trouser Jean. Its a great alternate to your skinny jean, and can be transitioned in the fall this year. If you are curvy, try to find a waistline that hits you at your natural waist (the smallest part). My problem with this style of jeans is that the pockets stick out and bring quite a bit of unwanted attention to my hips. My solution: sew the pockets down. They lay flat and are much more flattering. Because the trouser jean had a bit of a boxy shape, the length is key. It is absolutely necessary to wash and dry the jean before you alter them. Put on the highest heel that you would wear with this jean, (for the Spring try a really high wedge) and hem them to lightly dust the ground. By altering them long, they elongate your legs, making you look long and lean no matter what your shape. Since the trouser jean had a wide bottom, it will swing to show your shoe, don't worry. Do not wear this jean with a flats. I actually NEVER recommend flats!
