Ask any woman what is her least favorite clothing item to shop for, and, we'd bet that 90-some-percent of the time, the answer is resolutely: jeans. Whether they're high-rise or hip-hugging, bell bottoms or drainpipes, finding flattering denim that actually fits is a lot like boyfriend hunting. You'll encounter plenty of contenders -- some you'll even flirt with. But there will be few worthy of serious commitment.
However, on the racks at Scottsdale's Madewell lie an assortment of jean anomalies that are approachable, wearable, and stylish. Those still in fear of the notoriously unforgiving pant (or wishing to expand their denim repertoire) will get advice on how to wear it best while incorporating oncoming trends during Style Sessions. On Thursday, August 16, fashion-conscious ladies will get a look at the store's fall collection, featuring mix-and-match looks that are at once edgy, ladylike, and all-American.
