The Ultimate Guide To Your Perfect Pair Of Jeans

Ultimate Guide To Your Perfect Pair Of Jeans

If you are someone like us, who has spent half their life in jeans, you must remember that these pants are a direct descendant of that first pair made back in 1873. That year, two visionary immigrants — Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis, (owners of Levi’s) — turned denim, thread and a little metal into what has become the most popular apparel on earth. Apart from being durable, stylish and diverse-this piece of apparel is universally agreed to be a wardrobe staple. It is not only worth the investment, but dressed up or down, can be worn a million ways! Here’s the ultimate guide to help you find your perfect pair of jeans.

Know your rise for the perfect fit:

High rise

People are usually skeptical about wearing these but the truth is, they are a classic! Athletic body types with smaller waists will love this fit. Hourglass shapes on the skinny side look fantastic in high-rise jeans with stretch. This is a perfect style for cropped tops and tuck-ins.

Mid-rise

The most figure-friendly and comfortable style that gives structure around our waists and is most definitely owned by everyone! Mid rise jeans are compatible with any top length and add versatility to any outfit. Low Rise:

Low Rise

The perfect style to show off and feel confident about those curvy hips! It’s important to ensure a snug fit to avoid any gap from the waist. Slender body types can also rock the low rise. Because you may not have the curve in your hips, the jeans may hang a little lower so make sure to choose a fitted style with stretch.

There are 3 main types of washes:

Dark Wash

A dark wash pair of jeans is universally appealing to all shapes & is durable too. Dark Blue and Black washes are a universal wardrobe staple. Don’t forget to wash them properly to avoid them fading over time.

Light to Medium Wash

This wash can be dressed up or down through seasons, day and night-one can never go wrong with it! The lighter the wash, the more casual the vibe-Pair it with a light neutral top for a monochromatic look.

Coloured Denim

The different types of cuts available:

Bootcut jeans

Are slim up top, fitted towards the knee, with a slight flared out effect.

Stretch jeans

Are slightly elasticated and a cross between comfort and style, balancing both.

Trouser/Flared jeans

Are a loose-fit wide-legged cut for the ultimate comfort.

Mom Jeans

High-rise jeans with a solid straight leg named such as they were predominantly common in the 1980s and 1990s.

Boyfriend Jeans

Typically fit at the hips with a more relaxed, trouser fit down the legs.

Skinny Jeans:

Low rise, fitted jeans which as the name suggests, hug the skin.

Identify your body shape for that perfect fit!

Triangle or Pear Shaped

You may be this body type if you have fuller hips and rear and your shoulders are narrower in comparison to your hips. High Rise, Boot Cut, and Stretch are the ones to go for you as they help to balance out the hips and figure, keeping your legs in proportion with the extra fabric around the calves.

Hourglass and curvy body shaped

If you are curvy and have fuller hips, thighs and a bust and a narrow waist, Flares, Skinny and Skinny flares will definitely flatter those beautiful curves. Skinny jeans tend to highlight your legs since your chest and hips are already in proportion, adding a little flare from the knee onwards, further looks flattering by directing attention away from your hips.

Round or Apple-shaped

If you are generally well proportioned and have shoulders broader than the hips, then High rise jeans, trousers, Boot cuts, and skinny’s with longer tops are the way to go to hide those problem areas and direct attention away from the hips and stomach by balancing out proportions and highlighting the legs.

Rectangle and slender shaped

If your weight is evenly distributed around your body and has feminine long legs, straighter hips- mom jeans, high-rise boyfriend jeans, boot cut, and skinny jeans are all bound to flatter those long legs, be comfortable and compliment the body shape.
