We love Henry and Belle Jeans for their fit, attention to detail and premium denim fabrications. Find your perfect fit, they have a beautiful range of style and washes. The belle effect, this original Chicago brand is as dedicated to craftsmanship as it is to humanitarianism. A portion of every Henry & Belle sale is set aside for charitable causes, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Clothes4Souls, and Girls on the Run Chicago.
Mini Micro Flair Rustic Wash Jean The maximum stretch denim hugs your curves and the mini flair silhouette beautifully balances your proportions for a flattering line. Five pocket styling in a rustic, medium wash. The straight waistband sits just below the waist. While we think this subtle, softer take on the flare is particularly good for curvy girls, this Henry and Belle jean is super flattering on many figures. Shop it.
Super Skinny Pitch Black Ankle Jean Henry and Belle’s Super Skinny Ankle jean is perfect for petites who want a fitted look without the hassle of hemming. The straight waistband sits low on the hips. Soft, light-weight stretch denim in pitch black is smooth fitting for a true second skin style. Shop it.
Lila Straight Jean in Authentic Indigo Satin Denim Henry and Belle’s Lila Straight cut is a great alternative to skinny jeans.This classic style looks great on every figure. The Authentic wash has a light distressing with natural style whiskering on beautifully soft indigo denim. Shop it.
Everyone who lives in the midwest knows that the need for transitional dressing extends far beyond the start of the season. Creative layering and a thoughtful use of color can keep you stylish and comfortable on cool nights in August through scorching September days. We love this tunic from Tolani as the base for a casual transitional look. The rich jewel tone floral print keeps it summery and the lightweight fabric is perfect for layering. Pop it over jeans and add one of our two-ply cashmere ponchos from Claudia Nichole for cooler days.
