It’s All About the Denim
Shopping for jeans is one of those things in life that is never full of pleasure. Those denim-clad treasures may look inspiring on the shelf, instantly making you covet them, but when it comes to finding the ideal fit, that warm fuzzy feeling you began with suddenly changes to frustration!
There’s no getting away from the fact that jeans are a wardrobe staple, and whilst shopping for them might not be at the top of your wish list, there are major advantages to finding the perfect pair for you. Put simply, a flattering pair of jeans can transform your shape and wardrobe into something up there with the best, whether you’re male or female.
If only you could find the perfect pair …
Never fear, here are a few tips to help you on your way.
Cheap and cheerful might be better on your pocket, but they won’t look so crash-hot in reality. It’s always best to buy a good quality pair of jeans, which will not only fit you better, but also last you much longer. True Religion stock a fantastic range of denim, with something to suit every shape and style, so certainly check these out.
Identify your body shape
You need to be honest and realistic about your body shape and size, in order to find the most flattering pair of jeans for you. Identify what shape you are and go from there, picking the best style to suit accordingly. For instance, if you’re tall and skinny, go for a stylish pair of skinny jeans for women, and if you’re more curvy or hourglass shape, try a pair of fashionable bootcut jeans. The options are plentiful. You can choose to extenuate or hide whichever part of your lower body you choose, e.g. if you’re shopping for women’s jeans and you want to show off your curvaceous behind, then go for a pair with side or back pockets.
Think about the colour
Whilst brightly coloured denim might be bang on trend, it could also go out of fashion quite quickly, so think about the colour you’re wanting, and how long you’re wanting to keep them for. Dark denim is obviously always in fashion, and very flattering, however if you want to go for a more worn-in, distressed look then you need to be careful when it comes to identifying your body shape. As in the point above, identify your shape and work with what you’ve got. If you’re a little more petite, choose a pair with shading that runs down the front of the thigh section, and this will lengthen your legs and make you appear taller.
Be a little brave
Don’t be afraid to try a new shape, because the one you’ve been wearing to date might not be the right one for you. Consider going in store and asking for a personal shopping consultation if you’re undecided. Men’s jeans might seem like they’re easy to buy on the surface, but there are just as many styles for men as there are for women, so checking out the full range could yield some fashionable results!
And finally … put some time aside
Jeans shopping isn’t a quick job, not if you want to find a long-lasting pair that will serve you well, so be sure to put some time aside for the task, and make peace with the fact that you’re probably going to have to try on quite a few, before you find your perfect fit!
