Keep A Classic Current

Being a teen means embracing being young. Mixing colors and playing with shapes is all part of the game. But even young women have difficulty choosing the right pair of jeans. However, with so many fun and funky denim trends this season, there's no need to feel dowdy or down. Check out these adorable denim trends for your teen.

Skinnies

Don't expect this trend to go away anytime soon. The perfect pair of skinnies look great paired with flats or wedges, fit perfectly under boots and make slimmer figures look curvy and beautiful. Look for a pair with a good deal of stretch in them to hug the booty and make hips look slim. Get a dark wash to sophisticate your wardrobe, and then pair it with any of your favorite blouses for an instant dressed-up casual look. You can even slip them under your favorite summer dress during those cool fall months.

Bright colors

This is a recurring trend over the last few years that just won't die — and for good reason. Bright pops of color on the lower half of the body can be great ways to casually bring color into a wardrobe. Pair a mustard pair of skinnies with a navy-and-white striped cardigan for a smart fall look, or hit the town in a daring pair of cobalt blues. Cheer up a drab, neutral winter wardrobe and embrace your colorful side through each season.

High waisted

Jeans have a tendency to look relaxed and causal, but sometimes you just want to be comfortable while looking classy. High-waisted jeans are a retro look that emphasizes small waistlines while looking utterly timeless. Pair them with a flowy blouse and large ornate earrings for a throwback to the '70s without going full-blown hippie.

Curvy fits

Teens are slowly growing into their womanly bodies. If those hips are expanding, show off a womanly figure with curvy cut jeans like Levi's Curve ID, $58 at Kohl's. They sit just below the hips to flatter and form a modern silhouette and have enough stretch to hug the booty without looking vulgar. Plus, these fits come in both skinny and flared versions for updated and classic looks.

Trouser jeans

They're all of the timelessness of a trouser mixed with the casual sensibility of a jean. Trouser jeans are great for date night or a laid-back college interview and look great paired with everything from sandals to booties.

I've realized that skinny jeans are here to stay. I hated them at first but they've actually grown on me. They look great with an oversized sweater or long tank.

I really like bright colored jeans. My little sister wears those all the time - she's a teen. It can be paired with just about anything and makes for a really fun look!
