Is the rumor of skinny jeans being “over” true? Only if you are over them. The truth is, women can and should choose the jean that flatters their unique shape and feels good on. A touch of trend helps to keep us looking current, but ultimately we need to buy what works for our bodies. I have a straight figure so straight and tapered jeans are on my radar this fall.

I’m a true blue jean lover. A peek into my closet reveals more blue jeans than any other garment. Their casual vibe just works for my lifestyle and I love their versatility. The Nsale is on for a few more days and there are plenty of great deals to be had on fully stocked jeans, so I thought I would share what I bought.
TAPERED JEANS ON MY RADAR
The Perfect Vintage by Madewell is a favorite shape with an 11″ rise that is fitted through the hip and thigh. It’s heavier denim with a touch of stretch so they hold you in, but also mold to your body and have a tapered leg. For a day of walking and shopping the Nsale, these worked perfectly with a pair of comfy sneakers. I love these sneakers because they’re lighter weight than any other sneaker I own and very flexible. My little cropped cardigan is low on stock but other colors are available.
This pair of Perfect Vintage jeans are in the Ainsworth wash which is a slightly deeper wash in the same classic shape. They run a bit large so I went down one size to a 27 in these for a slimmer fit. My knit blazer is also part of the sale and a great casual topper over jeans. It comes in this blue or white, in regular and petite, sizes XXS- XXL, and is fully stocked
Madewell also makes skinnies, straight’s, crops, many in petite, regular, plus, and tall. These just landed in my shopping cart because a stovepipe leg is one of my favorite shapes.
STRAIGHT JEANS ON MY RADAR
I’m happy to see these Marilyn NYDJ straight-leg jeans as part of the Nsale in a new wash. It’s strategically faded but not distressed. They also come in a dark floral print that’s pretty if you love subtle florals. All NYDJ jeans have a special lift tuck technology that helps lift the rear and flatten your tummy. The denim is soft and very stretchy so always go down one size. They’re available in petite and regular here, plus here.
This silk and rayon scarf is large enough to wrap around your shoulders and whisper-thin so you can easily wrap it around your neck. I could not resist this color combo which will coordinate with most things in my wardrobe this fall. My cardigan is another great find from the Nordstrom brand. It’s beautifully made, soft and drapey, comes in 6 gorgeous colors, sizes XXS-XXL. I’m wearing the teal, in a small.
I was thrilled to see these Munro booties in the Nsale in this taupe this year and snapped them up immediately. I bought the black ones several years ago and love how comfy they are. Munros are sized from 5-11 in medium and wide widths so the fit is amazing. Being water-resistant is also great because suede can take a beating in the rain.
Nordstrom’s is my favorite department store for many reasons. Their customer service can’t be beaten plus they always have free shipping and returns, which is important to me. It’s hard to know what may fit when ordering online, so I can order both sizes and simply return what doesn’t fit, free of charge.
