Like so many moms, I practically LIVE in jeans. Almost every day, I pull my jeans out of my closet without even thinking and then decide what to wear with them – my daily dilemma is limited to one questions: jeggings, flares or my new favorite, colored denim?

JEGGINGS: I was very skeptical of the jegging when it came out, but it quickly became a wardrobe staple for me. I love the jegging! Even if you feel you’re too heavy to pull it off – consider this: Most jeggings have an elastic waistband and no pockets. Meaning, comfy waistline and zero bulk under your clothes. Pair your jeggings with a longer, cozy sweater and tuck them into your boots for a comfy everyday look. Or wear a tunic and heels for a night on the town.

FLARES: Every woman should have a pair of slightly flared trouser jeans in her closet. They are universally flattering, a classic style and when paired with heels, they make your legs look miles long. The key with flares is to hem them properly. They should be about a 1/2 inch from the floor, so you may need to invest in one pair for heels and one pair for flats… which brings me to the Golden Rule of Denim. Get a pen and write this down: When you find a great pair of jeans, buy two. A great pair of jeans is hard to find, and when you find a pair that you love – especially if that pair is on sale – buy two. You will not regret it.

Anyway, back to flares. Go with a darker color, so you can really dress them up or down. Flares are one of those great things that can go virtually anywhere!

COLORED DENIM: This is one of my very favorite trends! My closet is full of black, gray and neutrals. So I and loving a trend that allows me to take an old black shirt out of my closet, pull on a pair of jeans – jeans – and took totally amazing and trendy! Score! Give it a try. If you’re not feeling bold enough for red, go with cobalt and pair it with navy. Or even light yellow instead of white in spring.

What is your favorite way to style your denim?
