How to Wear Jeans Correctly

  Now that the weather is cooling down, I will be replacing my shorts with jeans. For the longest time, I did not wear a pair of jeans because I had a hard time finding jeans that fit my body type. When skinny jeans became popular, it was then I gave jeans a chance again. Now, I love wearing jeans and they are now considered essential items in my wardrobe.

 Safe to say, almost every woman owns a pair of jeans that are considered an essential item. But with the array of cuts, styles, and types of jeans out there, how do you know which is the right one for you? The best advice I can give you is to take it all back to basics and prevent that overwhelmed feeling by building on the basics. Here’s the essential guide to help you pick the right style for you, and to wear it well and with confidence!

More than 50 shades of everything!

 Although this season has indicated that sky blue is becoming the color of the season, remember that the denim you buy will also have to work and coordinate with the rest of the clothing you own and match your lifestyle. If you work with dogs, for example, light color such as this might not be the best idea! 

 Darker indigos and blues are easy to dress up to a more formal look and are easier to adapt to a working environment. If classic blue is not your thing, don’t be afraid to depart into one of the many unconventional jeans colors available on the market today. You might even discover that something you have always considered outrageous, like leopard print jeans, turns out to look great on you.

Although many people are intimidated by them, white jeans can go a long way in balancing out your figure, when paired with the right top half accessorizing. 

Something for every size

 For those who fall into the plus-size category, a good pair of jeans for women can go a long way in balancing hips and making your legs look longer. When it comes to jeans for women, bootleg, flare, and straight leg cuts are excellent for flattering the plus size figure. The secret of a flattering cut is to create long lines that lengthen the proportions of the body.

 Although many plus-size wearers shy away from form-fitting cuts, these are excellent for balancing the proportions of hips and thighs, creating an overall slimming effect. Add dark denim to the mix and you will enhance the look. 

What’s your shape?

 Rectangular body types tend to have hips and shoulders of similar width, with no real defined waist and a flat bottom. The benefit of this is that you can choose how much you would like to lift, emphasize, or underplay the shape of your backside through the jeans you choose.

 Rectangles are considered an easy body type to dress, as you have the choice of whether or not to create and emphasize, or downplay the presence of curves. The universal rule with jeans is to ensure that there is no extra room around the crotch. ​Rather buy jeans a size too small than too big, and let them stretch around your natural shape. Ideally, jeans should be form-fitting when you buy them and relax their fit as you wear them. Look for high-quality denim with lots of stretch in the fabric, that allows the fabric some give it when you wear it.
