Ageless Style: Denim Addition!

It’s time again for my quarterly Ageless Style post! For any new faces around here, every quarter I get together with a fantastic and diverse group of bloggers to style similar wardrobe staples or seasonal trends in a variety of ways. What makes this series fun, is that we have a representative from every age group to show you how they would style the specific trend or staple we have chosen for the quarter. I share a lot of trend styling for the 20-30 something year old woman and I'm excited to show options for all ages. It's my hope with this series to continue to inspire you with great style no matter your age.

For this quarters Ageless Style post we have chosen to show off our favorite pair of denim! Recently on social media Gen-zers have started the great denim debate, favoring straight denim over the super skinny jeans millennials know and love. It's so crazy how something as basic as denim is causing such a dispute. That's why for our Ageless Style post I was interested to know where every Ageless Style gal stood when it came to their favorite cut of denim. 

For me, I'm a skinny denim girl till I die!! I remember growing up wearing straight denim in high school and just not loving it. When I finally discovered my first pair of skinny denim it was instantly love at first try on. When I heard of the skinny and straight denim debate I remember thinking, why all the hate, skinny denim is the greatest thing that has ever happened to my style?!? They are so easy to dress up or down, and you always look so much more put together with a great pair of skinny denim. Number one reason I love them so much, I don't care what anyone else says, they are the best denim to pair with any shoe!! I know there are people who will disagree but I've tried a flat on with my straight denim and my skinny denim and it just hits differently with the skinny!! 

Whatever your denim choice, remember to always wear what makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! Denim is such a great classic piece, you really can't go wrong. Buy a cut that suits you and your style. For more great denim looks for every age, keep reading below to see what all the Ageless Style gals are loving!!

Bio: Hello! My name is Taylor and I am the Content Creator for the lifestyle blog CinCityChic. CinCityChic encompasses fashion, beauty, and lifestyle topics. I am passionate about cultivating creative inspiration to help others boost their confidence. Cincinnati is home and I incorporate upcoming events, local stores, and my personal recommendations within my blog about the amazing 513. As an explorative and fun-loving millennial, I am still finding my own path in this world. CinCityChic is my escape and journey that I enjoy sharing with others!  

Styling Notes: Happy Spring! Spring here in Cincinnati has been all over weather wise. That’s why for this series I am happy to showcase my denim look. Of course denim can be worn anytime of the year.

However, as we transition in weather, I believe denim is a great way to alternate between those cold mornings into warmer evenings. 

I styled my look with a simple grey sweater from Target and jeans from Torrid. I pray high waisted jeans never go out of style. If they do, oh well, they’re my go to look! Torrid has one of my favorite styles of jeans for plus sizes. They can be a bit pricey but definitely worth the price, if you want a pair of jeans that’ll last! 

This look is effortless but still stylish. It’s my jump into spring and ready for summer look!

Bio: For those new to my blog, I’m Lesa, better known as Prissy Missy. I am the misfit, quirky fashion-obsessed enby from That Misfit Mama Bear Life With Prissy Missy. When I am not empowering or encouraging others with fashion and flair, I can be found with copious amounts of coffee while helping others with their homeschool journey. I may be a bit eccentric, but hey, that's what makes life interesting, right?

Styling Notes: When you think of denim, you think jeans and jean jackets, right? While my denim jacket collection is still quite functional and impressive, I might add (Okay, so I have a small obsession with Torrid Denim jackets), my jeans selection is pretty much non-existent at the moment. I had a baby about six months ago, and with being busy with the baby and breastfeeding, I weigh less now than I did before I got pregnant. Needless to say, a large portion of my denim collection is now in my consignment pile. 

However, I still like to wear jeans and still like the skinny jeans look, no matter what’s been said about them on social media lately! So I found some really cute denim jeggings that pull up instead! These are great for weight fluctuations as the elastic works with you if you are losing weight or is forgiving if you put on a few pounds. Needless to say, these are a must have wardrobe staple!

Bio:  Hello, friend!  I’m Betsy, the Cleveland blogger behind Natty Gal, wife to Gavin, and fur-mom to Dolce, our Bichon-Frise pup.  Fun Facts: I’m a capsule wardrobe enthusiast, love adventuring to new countries and experiencing foreign cultures, and am committed to life-long learning and personal growth.  Natty Gal shares inspiration for creating a simple, stylish, and satisfying life via a mixture of lifestyle, fashion, and travel posts. I love to support women that are working toward becoming their best selves.  I’d love to invite you to check out my blog and become a part of the Natty Gal family!

Styling Notes: Happy spring everyone!  I’m back at it again with my Cali demi-boot cut jeans from Madewell, this time in crisp white.  This cut of jeans has been my latest obsession although I’m still a fan of classic skinnies!  They fit true to size and this white pair passes the all-important “no see-through” test.  For a classic black and white look, I paired the jeans with a black tank and layered a leaf-print, puff-sleeve, split-neck blouse on top.  While it’s out of stock in stores, it is still available to rent on BR Style Passport (affiliate link).  I’ve linked similar options in my post. The nude slides nearly disappear on my feet and keep the focus on the rest of my outfit. While black would have worked as well, I prefer the leg-lengthening effects of nude.

My accessories are all black and all linked on the blog: belt, sunnies, and bag. The Chanel classic double-flap handbag in black lambskin was an amazing and much-treasured gift from Natty Guy. While costly, iconic handbags often hold their value (and sometimes even appreciate) over the years. If you love the look but hate the price tag, I’ve linked some look-for-less options on the Natty Gal blog.

Bio: Hi Ladies! I’m Phyllis, the woman behind, a website dedicated to empowering women over 60 to be their best selves. I blog primarily about fitness, nutrition, and motivation but I also love to bring my passion for fashion and beauty to my followers as well. Most women in my age group feel forgotten and I like to remind them of their vibrancy and vitality.

Styling Notes: What I love most about denim jeans is that they're chameleons -- they can be adapted to any occasion with the proper pairing. I have many pairs of denim jeans but I definitely have favorites, like the pair I'm wearing in this photo. These fabulous jeans are made with incredibly soft denim in a light wash that screams spring and summer. I purchased these Martha Stewart jeans from QVC last year and I just don't want to take them off. Usually I wear these jeans casually with a tee shirt, but I love to add a pretty top like this beautiful cold-shoulder blouse from Vince Camuto.  Perfect for an outside dinner date. I finished the look with silver bangles and hoops and these fab leopard print slides for a pop of interest.

Styling Tip: Wear what you like! Most of the fashion mags and fashion gurus have stated that skinny jeans are out this year. Well, they're not out for me. My styling tip is to wear what you like, the way you like. Never allow another to dictate your style!
