The Denim You’ll Want To Wear This Spring

After having a clothing store for a bit more than two years now, I have learned a few things about women and their jeans. Most women have a very specific type of fit that they want and they really don’t want to venture far away from their favorite.

I hear unfavorable opinions about boyfriend, skinny, distressed, high-rise, mid-rise, and, well, everything in between. So it is a good thing that anything goes when it comes to denim. There is no “out.” If you like it, you should wear it, and I am confident there is a pair out there for everyone.

Here at Stylebook, we do want to tell you about what is new in fashion. So when it comes to denim, the latest trend — or maybe a better-way-to-state-it, “option” — in denim is the non-skinny. This can also be called the dad jean or the slim boyfriend or even a girlfriend cut. The rise is mid or high it is basically a looser fit around the leg but not a slouchy as the traditional boyfriend (which still might be my favorite).

So if you are looking for an update to your denim, or if you like a looser fit, this is the jean for you. We have distressed, racer striped, flared and some great basics in this perennial you will love.

I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
