TV personality/style expert Giuliana Rancic tells us how to look good in jeans this spring.
As host of E! News and Fashion Police and designer of her own line, G by Giuliana for HSN, Giuliana Rancic knows what’s hot and what’s not. We caught up with Rancic at her trunk show last week to ask her about all things fashion, including her new denim and loungewear collection (recently aired on HSN), what’s trending for spring, and much more. Here’s what we learned….
1. Finding the Perfect Jeans Depends on the Occasion and Body Type
Rancic’s best tips for finding the perfect pair of jeans is to first find what looks best on your body type rather than going with the trends. Then, find which type of denim best fits the occasion you’re dressing for.
2. Dress Up Your Boyfriend Jeans By Wearing Pumps
From the farmers market to a night out on the town, Rancic loves taking her boyfriend jeans from day to night by simply throwing on a killer pair of pumps.
3. The Girlfriend Jean is the Next Big Trend
For fall, Rancic is working on a new style dubbed the “girlfriend jean,” which has a more fitted silhouette than a boyfriend jean.
4. Always Check Your Backside When Trying on Jeans
“You have to make sure the behind looks good,” Rancic says. She always carries a compact mirror in her purse for this purpose. “You’re going to be turning heads with your front, so when you walk by, they’re going to be checking out your back.” For an even better trying-on experience, Rancic recommends online shopping so you can try jeans on in the comfort of your own home.
5. Rancic Wants Acid Wash Jeans to Make a Comeback
The Fashion Police host feels a little nostalgic remembering the acid wash jeans with lots of pockets she wore when she was younger. “I would love to own a pair of those [again],” she says. “They were so crazy.”
6. But, She Hopes Mom Jeans Never Do
“No more mom jeans,” she says with a cringe. “We don’t need mom jeans with [their] awful, big, fat elastic waistbands and baggy-in-the-butt and tight-at-the-ankle [silhouette].”
7. Loungewear is Meant to Be Comfortable, But Still Chic
“It’s not really sleepwear,” Rancic says of her lounge collection, which includes a cotton version of her bestselling moto jacket and a sweatsuit with a retro ‘80s vibe. “It’s for chilling at home, but [still] being able to quickly throw on your shoes and go out.”
8. Spring is All About Showing Off Your Legs
“I think that we’re going to see a lot of leg this spring, like short, little leather skirts [and] cute little shorts,” she says.
9. The Menswear Trend is Here to Stay
“I also think the menswear trend is hot for spring,” she adds. “It’s all about being feminine, but having a little bit of a menswear vibe.” Her favorite spring pairing includes her tailored pants styled with one of her graphic T-shirts that read, “My Other Shirt is Couture” and “Love.”
