The first item of clothing that you should wave goodbye to forever is the JEGGING (denim legging). I'm not sure why these were such a huge sensation since more than half the human population couldn't wear them without looking incredibly ill-at-ease (myself included). Following along the same lines as the jegging is the SKINNY jean. Thankfully, both are out!
The good news? Enter the high-waisted, wide-legged trouser. Set to become one of the biggest trends of Spring 2011, these demure trousers offer more coverage and a shapelier bottom. However not everyone can wear them. Lo and behold, I fall into that category.
Consumer beware: if you're bigger than a US size 6 I would not recommend you buy a pair of these trousers. Unfortunately the cut of these pants is extremely unforgiving on those of us who tend to put on weight in the hip & thigh area. Instead, try a boot-cut jean/trouser - they're classic and will never go out of style. The slight flare of the boot-cut balances your top and bottom half creating a flattering silhouette. I range between a size 8 and 10 and I find that this style suits me best.
