The Beckett Bell Bottom Jeans
Rag & Bone/JEAN
Sold by: Shopbop

Fit Guide
These Rag & Bone/JEAN jeans represent the best of the season, doing flare in such a clean and sophisticated way that is incredibly flattering on. Rag & Bone is a true contemporary, slim fit, but these jeans have amazing stretch to them and are really soft so they are more forgiving than some other styles. The rise sits just at/above belly button, which not only gives the illusion of even longer legs, but the even dark wash and GREAT stretch create a form-fitting shape around the butt and thigh that perfectly balances the flare of the legs. These are seriously slimming. And petite ladies, you won’t loose too much flare if you need to have them shortened. The color and style create a polished casual office look when you pair them with a button down, tailored knit and blazer, or sweater. And of course, are amazing for a night out with any of our slinky tops. If you’re tall, you can certainly wear your favorite oxfords or white sneakers, but heels or wedges help show off the flare for most ladies. These go up to size 31, so try Neiman Marcus if your size is already sold out through the ‘shop it’ button. (The picture doesn't look like the stitching is the same but it is.)

Ladies, The New Jeans You Need for Fall

We love a good pair of jeans any time of year, but Fall is always the best time for a refresh. With denim trends shifting into higher rises and legs with flare, the latest styles mean it’s time to find a couple updated fits that you’ll love, and still feel like “you”. One of the many great things about the new crop of denim for the season is the true versatility. The overly relaxed boyfriend styles and serious ripping and distressing take a backseat to clean washes, sophisticated details, and flare styles. These new jeans can transition in to a casual work place or a night out with more ladylike appeal than ever.

Finding those perfect confidence-building jeans can feel like a daunting process, so we’re breaking down the must-haves and giving you tips on fit and how to wear them. Jeans truly are a great online purchase. With sites that offer free shipping and easy/free returns (like we are sending you to), you have the luxury of trying multiple sizes – at home, with multiple pairs of shoes…on a day you are feeling ready to tackle your jeans. So, what do you need for the season to update your denim wardrobe to feel modern and fabulous? Let’s get into it.

Take a look at our overview here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, for “Our Fall Denim Edit: Jeans That Make You Look & Feel Your Feminine Best”, where we guide you through the best jeans in each category. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

4. Sophisticated Lady. Denim is not just in jeans. Spring brought us lightweight chambray shirts and skirts. For Fall, it gets even better. Pencil skirts, dresses, shirts, even blazers and sweaters are inspired by denim. These days, fabric technology is so advanced, styles using denim have fluidity and stretch and non-denim fabrics can easily take on the best shades of indigo for a denim feel. And they all create lady-like and downright sophisticated options that are really modern and flattering. This IRO sweater jacket exemplifies this trend in a way that feels so right for the Mark Shale lady. The nubby bouclé knit is unlined for soft shaping, with the comfort and warmth of a great sweater. Made in a mix of indigo blue shades and varying greys to black, it goes with everything. The style is simple, yet unique and sophisticated, so it works with a silk shell and trousers or simple dark wash jeans and your favorite tank top. The high-hip length and clean lines are great over a sheath dress or with a pencil skirt, too. (Click through to see how pretty it is closed, too.) This is French sizing (34=0-2, 36=2-4, 38=4-6, 40=6-8, 42=8-10) and it’s meant to be a trim fit – the stretch in the sweater material has a nice amount of give so it’s skims your figure without being overly fitted. If you are between sizes, size up.

3. All in the Details. While some of the denim details of the season are seriously entrenched in 70’s and mod inspirations, some of our favorites draw on those feels in really feminine ways. Whether you go with a braid detail, waist buckles, or patch pockets, we love those accents that give your jeans a more stylish feel, creating more versatility for a casual office look or a great night on the town. This 7 For All Mankind skirt does just that. The pencil silhouette is a really flattering way to play with braid detail, showing off your waist. And patch pockets are so much more forgiving in a skirt than they can be on a pair of jeans – creating a much slimmer shape. High boots and a simple slim sweater or tucked in shirt , even adding a classic blazer, really highlight the assets of this skirt. We’re directing you to Saks Fifth Avenue through the ‘shop it’ button because they have the most sizes left, but this style is selling out everywhere. If yours is already sold out, try 7 For All Mankind’s own website, Neiman Marcus, or Shopbop. Shipping is free everywhere. (And if you’re not a skirt lady, the jeans version is retro fabulous.)

2. New Take On Skinnies. Many ladies have spent several seasons now finding the right pair of skinny jeans. And don’t worry, they’re not going away. They do get fine-tuned though, with some updates in fit and washes. Clean, more even washes create a really slimming effect, replacing the need to make sure those distressed, faded areas hit the right spots. Instead of ripped knees and shredding, the raw element is now in freshly cut or “undone” hems, for the look of an opened hem seam These stylish hems look best hitting just at the ankle. Overall, the rise on skinnies is delightfully settling back at our actual waists. Whether you choose a mid-rise, sitting a bit below the belly button, or a trendier higher rise, they give you more length, so your legs look longer and your muffin top/love handles are securely tucked in. Cropped to the ankle, in a clean black wash (also available in deep indigo blue), the higher rise and slim silhouette of these Jen7 jeans are a favorite. The line is designed for “a woman who still craves the same high quality denim [as 7 For All Mankind] but with a more enduring look and ease of fit that works with her…timeless elegance.” And they deliver.

1. Wear Your Flare. Jeans have slowly and steadily started taking a turn from only skinny legs and slouchy cuffed boyfriends to bringing back one of our absolute favorites - the flared jeans. This Fall, they are the key to having an updated look in denim. If you’re like a lot of us, we bet we hear that big sigh of relief from here. Whether you go with a true flare, a more subtle bootcut, or a trouser style like these from 7 For All Mankind, the volume at the hem is super flattering for every lady. If you worry about your hips or behind, these jeans provide just the right balance to show off a ladylike figure. The important thing is length. Most local tailors can easily hem your jeans “with the original hem” kept on, whether they have a wider trouser-finish or a more traditional hem. With heels, just the tip of your shoe should peek out from under your jeans. And with flats, your jeans should just skim the ground. With clean washes and new details being so prevalent this season, jeans with a flare look polished and sophisticated for more upscale settings. Even the softly distressed wash of these jeans feel a little more posh - and they are so soft. The Ginger has been a popular silhouette and now it’s updated with a higher rise that makes it even better. The pockets are slightly smaller and placed in just the right spot, giving some lift – especially if you have a flatter behind. They have a wider, trouser leg so they’re not tight at the hip/thigh, and look great with a shorter top or a tucked in shirt.
