+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: August 14

Campaign staff live in denim.  And, in my opinion, every campaign staffer should pack two pair of jeans: one bootcut and one skinny for tucking into boots. 

As for brands, I’m fairly loyal to AG jeans.  I own a couple of pair of Joe’s, a pair of Citizens and a pair of Sevens, but I always come back to the AGs.  Always.

AG Angel Bootcut Denim ($175)

AG Ballad Slim Cut Jeans ($172)

The top pair are the Angel jeans, my all-time favorite.  The lower pair are the Ballad jeans, cut slim enough to tuck into boots but not too skinny for those of us with hips.

Also, the mid-day post today will feature some tips on how to buy jeans that flatter your figure.  I think you will love it.  And, of course, check back at 1:00PM for Two Ways to wear jeans on the campaign trail.

    Ann, I got mine at Bloomingdales in Friendship Heights. Nordstrom carries the line as well but I've never looked in store.

    Belle, I may be the most awkward person ever at attempting to tuck anything other than a jegging into boots. Any tips for the inept pant tuckers of the world? Thx!

    Just wanted to say that I'm really looking forward to your upcoming denim post today! I wonder if you have any advice for those of us with relatively curvy hips/butts but (relative) sticks for thighs? I love skinny jeans, but I have a really difficult time shopping for denim with ample enough room and support for my tush. That, or there's too much additional fabric between the butt cheeks and the back of the thighs, so that when I walk, the fabric rubs together and makes it sound as if I'm giving off mini-farts. Kind of ruins the classy image that I like to project.

    Belle, is it okay to hem bootcut jeans for flats or should they remain for high heel use only? I read somewhere that you should only wear straight leg jeans/skinnies with flats.

    Where can I get a good pair of petite corduroys? Do you suggest skinny or bootcut? I'm a shorty at 5'1.

    Great post. Are AG jeans available in any stores in the DC area?
