Fashion may be fickle but jeans will never let you down. Learn how to hunt down the perfect pair of jeans. Jeans are a standby. Dressed up with a sexy pair of high-heeled boots or paired with a favorite tee and running shoes, they’re a fashion requirement. But unearthing the perfect pair can be tedious. We offer these clues to finding your perfect fit.
1. Identify your body type
Your figure influences the style of jeans you wear. For example, a woman with an average figure might choose classic-cut jeans; someone with a fuller figure might select a boot-cut style to balance her proportions; a petite woman would choose a petite cut, perhaps in a straight-leg style for an elongated line. The recent trend of cropped jeans works perfectly for petite women!
2. Frustrated with jeans that gape at the back?
Try a low-rise pair – you might be surprised at how well they solve the problem.
3. Avoid a saggy seat
Regardless of your body type, jeans that gently hug your hips are always more attractive. Stretch denim eliminates a saggy seat and provides extra comfort and ease of movement.
4. The Proper Length?
Unless the style is cropped, the hem of your jeans should stop at around the midpoint of the back of your shoes. The pant legs should not bunch up at the ankle.
5. Try Till You Find Yours!
You might think you have found your style, but don’t be sure yet. Grab a variety of styles and try them on, try them on, try them on. Don’t be afraid to give a new style a whirl. Regardless of what the sign or label says, it’s how the jeans fit that will make them yours.
