Joe's Jeans

7. Joe’s Jeans

Joe’s Jeans are – in my humble opinion – the designer jeans that cater to the widest variety of body types with the greatest success rate. There is a cut for almost every silhouette – complete with cheeky name – and their website makes it easy to select the cut and the wash that is best suited for your anatomy. Their greatest contribution to society?: the “Honey” or “booty fit” jeans. Every single client of mine with fuller thighs and a voluptuous rear who have tried on the “Honey” jeans have fallen in love with them and taken a pair (or two!) home with them.


8. Adriano Goldschmied

Adriano Goldschmied, generally referred to as “AG,” is one of those denim labels with a cult following. I don’t think that they are necessarily flattering on everyone – or even a majority of the population – but if they do flatter you, chances are you are devoted to them…and to anything else they make for the lower half of the body, i.e. pants, skirts, shorts, etc. Their styles are on-trend, but never trendy, and they make a smattering of great accompanying basics in the form of corduroy and twill pants, tees and light-weight outerwear.


9. Diesel

Italian in both style and construction, Diesel always pushes the fashion envelope and thinks outside of the box. One of the original designer denim labels,


Diesel has maintained a steadfast following throughout all of the highs and lows of the fashion industry. They are always exploring new silhouettes and washes and have created a successful lifestyle brand to complement their denim foundation. Look to them for a distinctly European take on denim.
