Channel your Inner Tomboy for Spring 2009

During the 2007 fall season, we saw ladies gracing the runway in what was called “menswear” inspired clothing. Cropped pants, large watches, collared dress shirts and tailored jackets were all the rave. This spring, it seems as if the trend has carried over into warmer weather.

The big must-buy for the 2009 spring season is denim. Yes, it’s that time of the year to introduce a trendy item to your closet that you can mix and match to make several looks. A great way to start is with a pair of jeans. As pictured, Jupe Boutique has added iT brand jeans to its racks.

First pictured, the iT Sweetie jeans, are the oh so famous boyfriend style jeans. Katie Holmes, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Aniston and Sienna Miller are just some of the celebs that have been spotted wearing the trend. They are worn a bit baggy and folded up slightly above the ankle.

Try pairing an oversized white V-neck or plaid shirt with the jeans for a day look. The plaid shirt pictured is by Free People and available at Jupe. For evening, you can dress them up with a pair of heeled sandals and a form fitting black dress shirt. You might have trouble finding a pair under a hundred bucks, but no worries, Jupe has your back. The iT Sweetie jeans are a steal at $78.

The second pair pictured are the iT Mod Ankle jeans. Again, at only $78, they are an inexpensive way to add a stable piece to your closet. The Mod Angle jeans will introduce the rocker spirit into your wardrobe. Another 2009 spring trend is anything and everything with a rocker feel. From studded heels to ripped leggings, the tough look is in. The Mod Ankle jeans are slim fitting with a zipper at the ankles to add a bit of originality to the skinny jean. Try wearing the iT Mod Ankle jeans over heels with the zipper open to show a bit of ankle.
