There is no doubt that jeans will always be in style & that makes sense because they basically go with everything. However, you can create some great new looks by swapping out your jeans for different types of casual trousers. In addition, there are times when you are going somewhere & you're not sure if jeans will be appropriate. If you have some of these other options to hand you can play it safe & go with one of these.
1. Cords. Just like jeans they come in boot cut, straight leg & skinny styles. They also come in many different colors. For the most flattering look choose a cord with skinny/narrow tufts rather than wide spaces, which will just add bulk to your legs.
2. Leggings. These just come in the one style, fitted, but to make these look great there are a few rules to follow. We have an article all about this but the basic rules are: 1) Buy good quality leggings in a fit that is flattering. 2) Wear a long top that covers the “goodies” and 3) Accessorize!
3. Canvas/cotton pants. Again, like jeans, these come in boot cut, straight leg & fitted styles. All styles can be flattering, depending on your body shape, so choose whichever you feel most comfortable in. These also come in many different colors. The added bonus of these pants is that in the summer, if the material is not too thick, the ankles can be rolled up & worn with sandals.
