Jeans, unlike many other garments, don’t always conform to standard sizing. And size is important when it comes to jeans looking good. A ‘baggy bottom’ in jeans is as much of a no-no in fashion as a ‘soggy bottom’ is in a baking contest. So if you haven’t bought a pair of jeans for a while, take some time to study the various shapes (or fits as they are called in the jeans world) and pay attention to both the leg length and the rise (the distance the jeans go towards your waist). Don’t just buy the first pair you lay your hands on, or worse, buy it without trying it on!
Give a little…
One of the most exciting developments in jean fashion is the inclusion of stretch fibres in the material. Spandex is no longer just for leggings! Thanks to modern manufacturing techniques, you don’t have to accept that your jeans will stretch once you have worn them for a couple of hours like back in the old days, when they were made of 100% cotton fabric. And as a bonus, these slightly stretchy jeans also help to ‘lift’ in the right places and accentuate the areas you feel good about.
No need to be blue
Although blue is still the most used colour for jeans, there is a wide variety of different colours on offer, including white, black and indigo. Some brands even offer yellows, pinks and purples, so you can have the comfort of wearing jeans while adding a dash of colour or dress up your jeans for a smart, colour-coordinated look.
Help – too many choices!
Don’t expect to go into a shop and simply buy a pair of jeans. With the “everything goes” fashion trends these days you will find a bewildering collection of styles in even a modest jean collection. Slim, skinny, bootcut, boyfriend style and straight are all terms to describe different fits around the leg and it is very much down to each person to decide what they feel comfortable in and how they think the style looks on them. Leg lengths also vary with everything from ¾, cropped, ankle length and full length being an option. There are no hard and fast rules, but it is important to think about what type of shoes, sandals or boots you may be wearing with your jeans to get the best look.
