How To Look Better In Your Jeans This Year


We’re denim enthusiasts through and through here at Team Zoe, and across seasons and trends one of our go-to brands remains Paige. One of the many reasons we love the label is on account of the fact it’s helmed by a female entreprenuer, Paige Adams-Geller. We tapped the jean queen for some of her key denim commandments to ensure a stylish year ahead. Here, Paige dishes on everything from flattering fits to quick and easy tricks for updating your tried-and-true silhouettes.

"I expect to see a lot of cropped denim in 2016, from high-rise, straight leg silhouettes to slim flares. When it comes to trends, I believe fashion details will lie in modernizing a basic 5-pocket jean, such as new exposed-zipper details along with freshened-up hardware to give your denim a new look."


"I always believe you should wear what you look and feel your best in. That said, this season I recommend moving away from the denim athleisure trend and investing in a high-rise, cropped straight-leg jean or great flare instead."


"The most universally flattering type of denim is made from our Transcend fabric, which uses the latest performance fiber technology and won't stretch out under any circumstances—men and women LOVE it. It’s very flattering and keeps its shape in any silhouette. It’s a personal favorite to travel in."


"Every girl should have a few tricks up her sleeve to update her jeans. My favorites are:

  • If you have a high-rise straight leg in your closet, cuff it or roll it into a cropped length.
  • If the cuff or roll looks too thick, cut your jean off to your desired length and let it fray.
  • Try cutting off your flare into a trendy raw hem for a fresh update.
  • If you struggle with the waist being too big in a higher-rise jean, wear a belt—not only does it complete your look but helps with the fit."

"A fail-safe denim outfit (aka my uniform) is a great vintage-wash tank or tee paired with my favorite jeans (usually involving some kind of zipper detail) with a leather jacket and ankle boots."
