Last winter, our designer Joyce answered denim styling questions on our blog that came straight from you. The questions were so great—and Joyce had such a good time tackling them—we asked for more this summer. In just a few hours, we had burning denim-related Qs on some major common themes, from the best maternity jeans and petite fits to mixing washes and Joyce’s own go-to pair. We’ll let Joyce take it from here…
@dnischndr: What’s a new no-heels-required fit for someone petite?
Joyce: A classic straight leg. A high rise and cropped hem make legs look longer.
@sarahmleonard: Rocking denim on denim—how different (if at all) should the washes be?
Joyce: Choosing different shades is laid-back and easy to do. Add accessories to break up the blue.
@stellamariabaer: Any denim recommendations for pregnant chicks?
@delaneybig96: Any new ways to style my denim jacket?
@sungkeem: What’s your all-time favorite denim piece?
Joyce: Wide-leg jeans have always been my go-to fit. Now, I’m wearing them with a higher rise and a subtle crop.
@coriecartano: To you, what makes denim so timeless?
Joyce: Denim is the only fabric that looks good in any shape: jeans, of course, pencil skirts, shirtdresses, but there’s so much happening in texture too, like unfinished edges and two-tone washes. Nothing breaks in as beautifully as denim.
