Jeans are the one trend that will never go out of style! Jeans are also the one trend that comes in a wide variety of colors, cuts, and styles- proving that this is one item that works for everyone. Of course, what style and cut works for one person (i.e. a model) might not work for for you. And because of the overwhelming supply of denim styles and trends, its always best to try on dozens of pairs before actually purchasing one (or two). Here are few things to keep in mind when shopping for that perfect pair!
1- Keep Your Size and Shape In Mind
Short fashionistas will have a hard time living in a pair of jeans made for tall girls, so unless you have a terrific tailor on speed dial, stay in the petite section. If you’ve got a bit of a tummy, steer clear of high-waisted jeans which will only emphasize your stomach and shop for mid-ride styles instead. Remember to keep the focus on finding the right pair of jeans that flatter you and your figure.
2- Forget Trends
Shredded bleached jeans are all the rage now, but if you’re plunking down several hundred dollars in cash for a good pair of blue jeans, make sure that the style will last more than a season. Think classic straight-leg jeans with a dark wash.
3- Keep Your Size In Mind
Your size may change based on the brands you’re trying on. You could be a size 4 in brand A, a size 2 in brand B, and a size 6 in brand C. Once you’ve found the perfect pair, keep that size in mind when you’re shopping for more jeans from the same line.
4- Come To The Department Store Prepared
Bring your favorite pair of heels and favorite blouse when trying on jeans. You need to know how the whole ensemble will look with your new pair. And don’t bring a lot of jewelry, just the basics. And don’t forget to bring a trusty friend with an honest opinion who will patiently wait for you outside the dressing room to come out and give you an honestly tactful second opinion on whether or not those jeans are your dream pair.
