What I’m Really Wearing – Lucky Brand Jeans

What’s your go-to brand of jeans? It’s no secret that I have trouble finding jeans that fit me well.  I’ve lamented on this topic many times on GYPO.  My waist to hip ratio makes it hard to find a pair that doesn’t gap at the waist yet is wide enough for my hips.

For this month’s What I’m Really Wearing, I’m collaborating with one of my favorite brands that always fit me, Lucky Brand jeans.  They have many different fits and styles so it’s easy to find one that works for each individual body type.  Not only do they fit like a glove, they’re also very comfortable, hold their shape well and the washes and details are always on trend.

The pair that I’m wearing in this outfit is the Hayden Skinny Ankle Jean.  It’s a higher waisted jean so I can bend over without worry about revealing anything I don’t want to! As summer approaches, I’m planning to pair mine up with some easy, breezy tops and fun accessories like these from Lucky Brand for an outfit formula that works for just about anything.  Dress it up with a pair of nude heeled sandals.  Or cuff the jeans and add your favorite flip flop or flat metallic sandal for a casual, yet put together look that’s cool and comfortable. lucky-jeans-outfit-7




The fun abalone accessories go great with the colors and pattern on this top.  If you’re wearing a striking pattern, it’s always a good rule of thumb to keep your accessories simple and let the print be the star of the show.

Lucky Brand also has a great selection of easy summer dresses to make it as simple as possible to get dressed every day.
