Jeans - what cut is "in"? Not had to worry about this for a year
Hmmm, I read that super-skinny cut was 'in'. Not so forgiving, unless you are twiglike like Kate Moss. I think with jeans they look good whatever cut they are if they fit you well and flatter your body shape.
I think it's more about what suits you and not what's 'in'. Bootcuts are probably the most universally flattering and are still in - Diesel do some good ones. Seven's NY dark wash is VERY flattering (can't wait till I can wear mine again - pg at the mo!). Miss Sixty do great looking SuperTommies - flared legs and tight around the hips, and the stuff by Bench and Hooch is good - flared legs tight around the bum. Stretchy too so if you think you're going to lose more weight you could probably get some which are a little on the small side and find yourself fitting into them better soon. Just bought some today incidentally - they make for great maternity jeans!
However if you are one of the lucky few who can wear any style, the tight airbrushed-on look is very fashionable - think Kate Moss in her straight-legged rock n roll types tucked into heeled ankle boots. Not a look many can get away with, but if you can i believe that look is pretty hot right now!
