Dark Wash Denim

There are two things most women dread shopping for, bathing suits and jeans. Denim is a staple in women and men's closets, however it can be a frustrating and sometimes an emotional journey to find the perfect pair for your body. One style that every woman should own is a dark wash boot cut jean. The boot cut flatters just about every figure and can be dressed up or dressed down when in a dark wash.

The LBD (Little Black Dress) is an essential piece in every woman's wardrobe, and most of us already own at least one (if you do, yay for you!) The idea of the LBD is that it can be worn on a date, to work, out with friends, or to a party, all with simple changes in your accessories to make it appropriate. It is a go-to piece that never lets a woman down. Here are some choices all under $50!

Designer Jeans for Under $100

If Santa missed the letter you wrote him about how you need a pair of $300 designer jeans because they just seem to make your derrière look a little better, you don't have to settle for those other brands just yet. Easy Money Jean Company is a new line of designer jeans for under $100, brought to you by Michael Glasser, founder of Seven for All Mankind, Citizen of Humanity, and Rich and Skinny. From now until about March, Easy Money Jean Company is available exclusively at Nordstom, but will soon be sold at other denim retailers. Some of my favorite styles include:

The 'Sterling' Straight Leg Stretch Denim in Darkest Vintage Wash for $98. These jeans are great for the weekend and casual gatherings. Pair them with a soft v-neck tee and boyfriend blazer for a pulled-together look. Layer long necklaces and kick off your flats for a pair of pumps and you're ready for a night out.

I also suggest the 'Lira' Stretch Denim Leggings in Softest Rinse Wash for $88. I love how these denim leggings have front and back packets as well as a zip and button closure, making them appear to be real jeans, when in fact they are leggings. All the comfort and style you could want, with a great price tag as well!

All Easy Money Jean Company Denim is available in sizes 24 to 32.
