Why is it a Find? The trimmer boyfriend styles of this season are a dream. Not only are they as comfy as jeans can be, but the looser leg and waist create a balanced look if you have curvier hips – and, absolutely show off a trimmer figure with that perfect slouch. These Citizens of Humanity, called the Emerson, are simply the best boyfriend style, especially in this new even wash. While still completely borrowed from the boys, it’s not exaggerated or overly trendy so you can get tons of use out of them. The clean and utterly simple medium wash of this denim is seriously soft. It has some stretch and lyocell in the denim, both of which give it a lighter, easy-to-move feel that just adds to the slouchy, effortless look. Don't forget to use code BIGEVENT16 this week to get up to 25% off thru the 'shop it' button.
Wear it with: Unlike boyfriend styles of past seasons, the leg is loose but not wide and it tapers a bit at the ankle, so you can cuff them (or not) and add strappy sandals or heeled open booties for a dressier look with a date night top. And they’re always weekend ready with any casual knit top and slip-on mules, booties, or sneakers. If you work in a casual office, these can also work once you add an easy button down – we love a blazer with them, too.
Fit Tip: The effortless fit is evident in every aspect of these jeans. If you have skinny fitting Citizens, you can go with the same size, but these will certainly have a more relaxed feel. If you are often between sizes, you can size down – especially if you are petite – but you don’t have to (as you sometimes need to with boyfriend jeans). These sit just below the belly button with a loose, but not sloppy fit through the hips and legs.
Alternatives: This wash is just as versatile if the featured one is already sold out. J.Crew’s slim boyfriend comes in Petite and Tall, sizes 23-32, in their typically modern fit that can be worn full length or cuffed up for a similar cropped look.

CROPPED.
Why is it a Find? These Citizens of Humanity jeans have a skinny look, but with an updated straight leg. Combined with the clean, dark wash, they are incredibly slimming - and have a polished look that makes them appropriate for a casual work day, and drinks later. Don't forget to use code BIGEVENT16 this week to get up to 25% off thru the 'shop it' button.
Wear it with: Jeans can have so many personalities, and these are all fashionable sophistication. Whether you choose a date night top or something more work appropriate, these will be a great partner. Tailored shoes, ballet flats, and simple white sneakers all work. And anything with ankle detail, like a lace-up or a simple ankle strap will be show-stopping.
Fit Tip: The cropped length is meant to hit just above the ankle, and can be easily shortened for petite ladies, since there is no distressing around the hemline. The dark denim has a nice amount of stretch and is lighter in weight, so they’re comfortable in the warmer weather. The rise is updated, sitting just below/at the belly button, which completes the slimming look, ensuring you won’t have muffin top or love handles. Citizens of Humanity is a contemporary brand that’s not too skinny, so go with your regular size.
Alternatives: DL1961 has an equally clean, dark wash, with a slightly more casual feel – thanks to it’s contrast stitching.

Why is it a Find? Banana Republic’s modern and clean aesthetic is the perfect brand to interpret the trendier crop flare silhouette. Even adding the updated raw hem, they’ve done it in a way that is stylish without being over-the-top, if you know what we mean. The wash has light distressing, with sanding in all the right places to slim your thighs and lift your behind.
Wear it with: These are designed to hit just a couple inches above the ankle, give or take, so they look great with pretty much all your shoes. Wedges, lace-up flats, sandals, and cute sneakers all work with these jeans.
Fit Tip: Banana Republic’s modern fit, comes in several lengths, from Petite to Tall, sizes 00-16. So no one will have to worry about getting them shortened – a perk, since the frayed hem actually has a stitched finish just above it. The denim is incredibly soft, thanks to the Lyocell content in the denim, but they aren’t overly stretchy, so they provide some nice structure without being restrictive. The mid-rise sits just below the belly button.
Alternatives: 7 For All Mankind has a lighter wash and easy, contemporary fit, while MiH offers an updated contemporary look with a flattering higher rise that offsets the cropped leg beautifully.

Why is it a Find? Jeans meet trousers with these black FRAME cropped jeans in a soft and stretchy black denim that have all the finishing details of a great pair of pants. From the slant front pockets and tab waist closure to the welt back pockets and wider cuff at the hem, these are meant for a lady who loves her jeans and wants something different...AND for the lady who doesn’t usually love jeans because they are such a perfect hybrid. Don't forget to use code BIGEVENT16 this week to get up to 25% off thru the 'shop it' button.
Wear it with: They even come pressed with a crisp crease down the center, just like a great pair of trousers. The obvious choice is a button down or sleeveless blouse with a cardigan or blazer and heels or tailored flats. But don’t be afraid to have some fun by pairing a really casual faded tee or boho off-the-shoulder top with them, too.
Fit Tip: FRAME is a contemporary brand, but not an overly trim fit, and these are no exception. The straight leg gives you some room, and is meant to hit just above the ankle – any tailor can shorten them, ask to “keep the original hem” to maintain that wide cuff. The waist sits just below the belly button to maintain that polished look.
Alternatives: This is selling out everywhere - Net-a-Porter may still have your size, if it's sold out through the 'shop it' button. For a more relaxed, modern fit, NYDJ’s classic capris in black are a great alternative.

Paige  - Transcend - Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans
Why is it a Find? A good pair of basic skinnies is a staple at this point, and Paige has one of the best. This wash is dark enough to flatter, with well-placed distressing that gives them a casual air. The slight faded wash at the behind makes for an amazing view as you leave the room – it really does give the illusion of round and high backside. The denim is super soft, with nice stretch for all day comfort. The skinny leg is seriously flattering when it hits just above the ankle, so if you are petite, go ahead and get them shortened. The length really elongates the leg, regardless of your shoe choice.
Wear it with: Seriously, anything. For work, a night out, a day of errands, when you don’t know what to wear…wear these.
Fit Tip: Paige is one of our favorite contemporary denim lines because they are cut to work with a real woman’s figure, while maintaining an updated and stylish look. You can go with your normal size, and these are available in sizes 23-34, and they look good in them all.
Alternatives: If you are a Joe’s Jeans fan, their version of a cropped skinny is just as versatile. Citizens of Humanity’s version has is slightly higher rise with a more relaxed shape throughout in medium blue wash that creates a really fresh, updated look.

WIDE & FLARED LEGS.
Why is it a Find? As far as many of us are concerned, one of the best things that has happened to jeans is 7 For All Mankind’s “Tailorless” collection. Realizing that not all ladies are as tall as models, with 35” inseams, they’ve cut down the length and proportioned the distressing perfectly. 7 For All Mankind were one of the first “designer” denim brands to hit the scene, and the Ginger was THE flare jeans everyone wanted. Now, they’ve redone them with an updated rise that sits closer to the belly button and a great looking wash – in both the shorter Tailorless inseam, and the regular version, too.
Wear it with: The flare looks so fresh again. While any top looks great, we love tucking something in (or just partially tucking the front in) to show off the higher rise that is really slimming, since it hits at the waist, your smaller attribute, vs. hitting closer to your hips.The flare looks great with heels or wedges, though you can certainly wear flats – just make sure these jeans skim the ground with whatever shoes you choose. (You’ll notice they’re a little short on the tall model through the ‘shop it’ button, but that’s not surprising. The fit on the longer version is more accurate.)
Fit Tip: 7 For All Mankind’s Tailorless collection is made for ladies under 5’9”. Not only is the length shorter, but the distressing along the legs is also designed to hit at the right spots on a “shorter” frame. We say “shorter” in quotes because, let’s face it, 5’7” isn’t short. So if you are truly petite, we still suggest getting these jeans and have a tailor shorten them, keeping the original hem. The distressing along the leg will work nicely for you and you won’t lose the flare when you shorten it.
Alternatives: If you are taller, 5’9” or over, you don’t need the Tailorless version, so the full length version is for you.

Why is it a Find? This wash is made from a lighter weight - and only mildly faded- denim, so Citizens of Humanity is able to create a clean look and let the silhouette really steal the show. They have a decidedly higher waist that balances the cropped flare of the leg for a longer line that is really flattering. And most importantly, by cinching in at the smallest part of your torso, they are super slimming if you have curvier hips/behind. Yet, they also create an hourglass silhouette that is ideal if you have a flatter behind. Don't forget to use code BIGEVENT16 this week to get up to 25% off thru the 'shop it' button.
Wear it with: These are shown with modern lace-up flats, showing off the cropped flare of the leg. And really, these jeans are all about showing off any of your favorite shoes at the same time. We especially love them with strappy heeled sandals or wedges and a breezy blouse for drinks or brunch. And for a casual office day, any tailored flats look great, along with a button down and blazer.
Fit Tip: Unlike a pair of contemporary fitting skinny jeans, these crop flares are a bit easier – still go with your normal size, and you’ll love how comfortable they feel. They have a touch of stretch for additional comfort, and are meant to hit above the ankle. If you need to shorten them, you won’t lose the look of the flare, either.
Alternatives: If your size is already sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, Citizens of Humanity’s own website carries them, too, also with free shipping. They also offer another wash with a more distressing and whiskering for a truly weekend vibe.

Why is it a Find? Besides the re-emergence of flares and bootcuts, an overall fuller wide leg is back on the scene. J.Crew’s interpretation for Spring gives them a pant-like finish, steering the look away from a fast fashion feel and creating a truly chic pair of jeans that you’ll be wearing all Spring and into Fall. The side zip and higher rise creates a clean line that pairs effortlessly with the dark even wash and full, wide legs. Seriously, these are fashion – and at J.Crew’s very fair prices.
Wear it with: The wide leg calls for tucking your top in or a top that hits at the waist/high hip. But that’s where the rules end, so have fun with these. The pant-like feel make them an easy casual workday choice and you can even pair them with a blazer. They look so smart with a breezy silk blouse or shell and a sexy pair of heels for a night out, and can even look playful with a simple white tee and sneakers.
Fit Tip: They are made in sizes 23-32, Petite and Tall, so you can be sure to get the right proportions for your figure, which is key to this shape. You don’t want the fuller leg to overwhelm you, so the shorter length and higher rise that shows off the smallest part of your waist create just the right balance. They are cut in J.Crew’s typically modern fit, so go with your normal J.Crew size.
Alternatives: The regular length is gone in most sizes on J.Crew's website, but Net-a-Porter carries it, too. J.Crew also offers it in white, which works in this polished silhouette really well. Citizens of Humanity’s take has a high-waist and frayed hem for a truly contemporary version, both in fit and look.

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? We’ve had a serious love affair with this Veronica Beard style all Fall and Winter, and this white version just makes us giddy. Worth every single penny, white jeans can be tricky, but not these - every detail is meant to flatter, and they succeed. The double seamed waist is just ridiculously slimming. The back and slanted hip pockets are faux, so you won’t get any extra bulk, further accentuating the waist and slimming everything else. They have a very polished feel, especially in white that far exceeds any fashion trends, resulting in your perfect go-to white pants. Don't forget to use code BIGEVENT16 this week to get up to 25% off thru the 'shop it' button.
Wear it with: These dress up and down with ease, since they are made of a wonderfully soft and stretchy denim (that’s not too thin), but have all the details of an amazing pair of trousers. We adore them for a lovely dinner, day at the office, or a chic brunch look. Unless you’re tall, go ahead and wear some shoes with height (wedges look great) to help fulfill that leg-lengthening look. A tucked in blouse or knit top will show off the waist details and be really slimming.
Fit Tip: This modern-fitting line was started a few years ago by two women focused on versatile, wearable key pieces for a woman on-the-go. And to say they’ve got the fit down on these jeans would be an understatement. Unlike most jeans, these run sizes 0-12, so go with your normal size. If you need to shorten them, you won’t lose any of the figure-flattering flare – just be sure to have the tailor pin them with the shoes you’ll most frequently wear.
Alternatives: Veronica Beard also has a version with a braided waist detail that is perfect if you are into the big ‘70’s trend of the season. In white or a perfect shade of brighter medium blue the fit is the same and the quality equally superb. For a simpler, less trouser-like feel, AG Jeans make a simple pair of white flare jeans with an inseam great for any lady under 5’8”. And Hudson Jeans has a contemporary fit for you taller ladies.

UNFINISHED HEMS.
Why is it a Find? With subtle throwback inspiration, these 7 For All Mankind cropped skinnies are made out of one of their best selling fabrics – it’s just the right medium weight, with some amazingly comfy stretch, and a really soft hand. This soft blue color is hand sanded for a lightly broken-in wash that is casual perfection, making the raw hem feel natural.
Wear it with: These will become a weekend favorite, easy with all your slip-on sneakers, flip flops, and cute sandals. Tees, tanks, lightweight sweaters and boho tops will all complete your look.
Fit Tip: 7 For All Mankind is a contemporary-fitting brand, and we’ve found these to fit a bit easier than some of their other skinnies. If you are between sizes, you may need to size down, but otherwise, go with your normal size. And if you need to shorten these to hit above your ankle, it’s as easy as pie. You can even do it yourself if you have a steady hand with a scissor. Wash them after you cut them (in cold) to get the loose fringe back on the hem.

Why is it a Find? The “released hem” look, in case it’s not clear, is when the hem looks like it’s been unstitched. This pair, from Joe’s Jeans, is one of our favorites because the released hem is still a darker wash that matches the rest of the jeans. Many released hems have much more contrast, but this more even wash, not only helps elongate the leg, it’s a less trendy – and more ladylike – way to interpret the look.
Wear it with: The casual vibe looks great with all of your weekend favorites from tees to tanks and easy gauzy tops. Since the leg is slim, flaring out at the bottom, you can wear tops tucked or untucked for a well-balanced look. We love the way flare jeans look with wedges and block heels, but the casual feel of this released hem works with flat sandals and espadrilles, too.
Fit Tip: Joe’s Jeans is a contemporary fit that’s not too skinny. Go with your normal size. They have a mid-rise that sits below the belly button – not too high or too low. These jeans should just skim the ground with whatever shoes you choose. If you need to shorten them, you absolutely can, without losing any of the hem details that make these jeans so cool. Just ask the tailor to “keep the original hem”.
Alternatives: 7 For All Mankind’s version is done in their iconic wide-legged Ginger silhouette, in a shorter inseam, perfect for ladies 5’8” and under. The wash is more distressed to really show off the dropped hem detail.

Why is it a Find? Another way to embrace the “released hem” look of the season while keeping it subtle and effortless, is with these white jeans. The unexpected finish gives the polished look of crisp white jeans a subtle edgy finish. And the best part is that these are from 7 For All Mankind’s Tailorless collection, so they’re made with a shorter inseam, ideal for ladies under 5’9”.
Wear it with: Anything you would normally wear with white jeans, pastels and poppy warm weather colors look great with these. And you can dress them up or down thanks to the soft clean white denim – and raw finish. Wedges look great, but they also look awesome with casual flat espadrilles and sandals when you want a more relaxed feel.
Fit Tip: Once you click through the ‘shop it’ button, you’ll see they are a little short on the tall model – in the longer version (here), you can see the appropriate length, just skimming the ground. And if you still need them shortened, any tailor can “keep the original hem” so you don’t lose the released hem. They are cut in 7 For All Mankind’s contemporary fit, but they aren’t too trim – you may find them a bit more relaxed than some of your skinnies in the same brand, but your normal size should still fit great.
Alternatives: Taller ladies should go with this version, made in the typical longer inseam length.

Why is it a Find? The unfinished hem and broken-in wash of these Madewell jeans have a perfect Sunday feel. While some of our other picks in this category are about balancing this relaxed finish with polished components, these are all about playing up the laidback vibe.
Wear it with: The distressed wash is weekend ready, so throw these on with all of your casual tees, tanks, and brunch ready favorites. The higher rise balances the cropped length – and minimizes any dreaded muffin top or love handles - so we suggest showing it off by tucking in (or partially tucking in the front of) your top to get the full lengthening effect. Doing this also keeps the look very flattering if you choose flat sandals or sneakers.
Fit Tip: Madewell is J.Crew’s sister company, with a similar modern fit. As you can see from this picture, they do run a bit big, so if you are between sizes, we suggest sizing down. The denim is soft with great stretch, so you’ll still be comfortable. They are meant to hit just above the ankle, and are stitched above the raw fringe. But if you need to shorten them, a tailor can still keep that in tact.
Alternatives: They are also sold on Madewell’s own site and you can read up on all the great customer reviews there, too.

LIGHT WASHES.
Why is it a Find? We sung the praises of Citizens of Humanity’s Emerson slim boyfriends in this week’s Featured Find (at the top). With the same fit, this absolutely gorgeous shade of the lightest blue – almost white – is like a summer sky. The fabric is insanely soft and a lovely, lighter weight so you can wear them on a warmer day in comfort. Don't forget to use code BIGEVENT16 this week to get up to 25% off thru the 'shop it' button.
Wear it with: While still completely borrowed from the boys, the leg is loose but not wide and it tapers a bit at the ankle, so you can cuff them (or not) and add strappy sandals for a night out look. And they’re always weekend ready with any casual knit top and flats or sneakers. The pale color is chic with white, especially a white linen button down, and plays with all the soft pastels and neutrals of the season.
Fit Tip: The effortless fit is evident in every aspect of these jeans, meant for the perfect slouchy look. If you have skinny fitting Citizens, you can go with the same size, but these will certainly have a more relaxed feel, and this wash is a bit more relaxed than other Emerson washes. If you are often between sizes, you can size down – especially if you are petite – but you don’t have to (as you sometimes need to with boyfriend jeans). These sit just below the belly button with a loose, but not sloppy fit through the hips and legs.
Alternatives: This style goes up to size 32, but the Gap offers a similar style up to size 35 - and they have a Tall option, too.

Gap -  STRETCH 1969 True Skinny High Rise Jeans
Why is it a Find? Gap’s STRETCH 1969 jeans are made from a seriously soft and stretchy denim. These high rise skinnies are done in a light, well distressed wash that is a great value for your relaxed, weekend style.
Wear it with: We don’t need to tell you – whatever your weekend go-to top is, these jeans will work. Tuck in, don’t, it doesn’t matter. Add wedges, wear flip flops, sandals…you get the idea. These are just a great staple.
Fit Tip: Offered in 5 inseams and sizes 24-35, these really are an “every lady” pair of jeans. Gap’s fit is modern, so while these are cut for a skinny look, they don’t run small. The higher rise gives them an updated feel that works with the skinny leg, since they accent the smallest part of your torso and create a lengthening look.
Alternatives: Gap also offers a pretty almost pastel blue version of these jeans. And Paige Denim has an even, medium/light wash that perfectly flatters with a trimmer, contemporary fit and equally updated, higher rise.

Why is it a Find? The smoky pale green of these 7 For All Mankind jeans are such a pretty and lady-like alternative to basic white, light grey, or soft blue denim. Everything about the style is made to highlight the color and the one special hem detail – the back pockets don’t have a stitch design and the mid-rise sits just below the natural waist for a beautiful fit. The released hem is subtle, without any significant distressing to create a modern, non-fussy look.
Wear it with: These jeans are like a breath of fresh air, so pair them with any of Spring’s best colors – pale pink, yellow, grey, white, bold orange, and even rusty brown look so, so pretty with this color. And of course, any boho top or patterned flowy blouse are just as appropriate as your favorite tees. Flat or heels work equally well.
Fit Tip: 7 For All Mankind is a contemporary fit, and these run true to that sizing. Meant to hit at around the ankle, the clean wash gives you some flexibility, so a few inches above if you’re tall, or more full length if you’re petite, still looks great.
Alternatives: All shades of pretty, white wash pastels work this season, and Paige offers a soft peachy pink in a similar fit, while NYDJ offers a full range of colors in an easier, modern fit.

LIGHTWEIGHT DENIM – ANY STYLE.
Why is it a Find? By adding a soft tencel thread to denim, you get a drapey and fluid fabric that is such an ideal way to wear denim during the warmer days of Spring and Summer. These Eileen Fisher pants have all the comfort of your favorite sweats, including that great elastic waist, with a whole lot more style. Pockets, belt loops, and stylish buttoned cuffs make them ready for brunch or a casual outdoor dinner.
Wear it with: Simple canvas sneakers or espadrilles play with the sporty, casual vibe. And medium brown sandals with some ankle detail look great with the blue denim and cropped length of these pants. Any top works, and we especially like one that covers the elastic waist – tuck just a bit in at the front to balance the volume and show off the cute faux fly detail. You can also completely tuck your top in and use the belt loops to conceal the elastic.
Fit Tip: Eileen Fisher is relaxed in fit, and in XS-XL, these are meant to be comfy and easy. The hem at the bottom of the legs has an adorable button detail, so they look best just at/above the ankle. Any tailor can shorten these and “keep the original hem” if you need them shortened.
Alternatives: Splendid offers a trimmer, contemporary fit and Equipment does a modern fitting version that sits right in the middle of Splendid and Eileen Fisher’s fits. So, there’s no reason not to get on board with the super comfy and stylishly casual look.

Why is it a Find? Michael Stars has always been one of our favorite resources for casual tops. And they don’t disappoint with this linen/tencel button down. The linen gives the blue a true denim look, with great texture, while the tencel makes it soft and perfectly drapey. Contrasting darker stitching and buttons are just the right finishing touches. Note: We are directing you to Michael Stars’ website. If it doesn’t work out, they do offer free returns and exchanges.
Wear it with: The straight hem curves for a longer shirttail in the back that makes it so easy to wear untucked and still look polished. It has a denim look but can still be worn with jeans or jean shorts – just make sure your denims don’t match. But of course, the beauty of a denim-like shirt is that you can wear it with any color bottom (including pattern), so have some fun with this one.
Fit Tip: Michael Stars has always been known for a modern fit that works on most every lady. This shirt is available in XS-L, so go with your normal size for an easy, but not over-sized, fit.
Alternatives: Theory plays with the look of denim with a linen fabric, too, but they offer it in a sleeveless dress that will take you from desk to dinner any day of the week.

Why is it a Find? AG uses a soft and lightweight denim in this simple sleeveless top that is made special with its cool fade of denim, so you get a couple of shades of pretty pale blue. And the back has a button detail at the neck to give it a little polish. Don't forget to use code BIGEVENT16 this week to get up to 25% off thru the 'shop it' button.
Wear it with: Offset the street style vibe with classic linen drawstring pants, casual cotton pants or a cute floral patterned skirt. As shown, you can see it can be worn with blue denim, just pick a different shade. And white or colored denim is equally flattering.
Fit Tip: AG Jeans is a contemporary brand, and this top is cut to loosely skim the body in your normal size. It hits around the hip on most ladies, so it doesn't look sloppy.
Alternatives: Anthropologie’s version is also denim, but in a darker shade with a zip-up back, the modern fit has a relaxed body and hip length that looks cute with all the same bottoms.

Why is it a Find? Level 99 quickly gained popularity when the brand was first launched, with this wide leg silhouette. Done this season in a linen/tencel chambray fabric, it has perfect lightweight fluidity, and the great look of denim.
Wear it with: Wide legs always look great with heels, like this season’s block heels or great wedges. You can even dress them up in a casual work environment with a tailored cotton sweater or patterned blouse and heels. But these pants do have a casual vibe that looks great with flat espadrilles, sandals, and sneakers, too – especially when paired with a relaxed white button down or your favorite tee.
Fit Tip: They are a little short on the model in Anthropologie’s picture (through the ‘shop it’ button and shown here). They should just skim the ground, and any tailor can shorten them, if needed. The fit is modern, in sizes 24-33, with a mid-rise and easy fit around the hip and behind that flatters most every body shape.
Alternatives: For a more relaxed fit, Nic + Zoe’s wide leg linen pants have the same denim look, and light, airy feel.
