Jeans are a staple in most closets. They can be worn to work, on the weekend, or when you’re dressing up for a night out. But jeans can also be tough to buy!
Let’s break down jeans shopping by jeans style and give some tips so that you can find the perfect pair of jeans for your body type.
When buying jeans, having a good fit is important. Wearing your jeans with comfort is the number one priority when it comes to purchasing denim jeans. Even though this may seem like an easy task, there are still steps that you can take to keep yourself from getting lost while trying on jeans:
Make sure to look at different jeans before making a final decision on which jeans to purchase
The jeans should fit perfectly. If you choose poorly, they will not look good on your body and may also be uncomfortable to wear all day long or for an entire event.
Look at different styles/cuts; skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, tapered pants are just a few options that can help provide some inspiration around what fits best before going into stores.
You can always try online shopping as well! If you are looking for the perfect pair of jeans but don’t know where to start shopping, be sure to find some of the nicest jeans in diesel outlet, and alternatively, seeing someone wearing similar styles in public is another way to get inspired without having to spend money!
The jeans should feel comfortable around the waist and legs no matter what position you are in
If jeans fit you properly and comfortably, jeans will be able to last a long time. Jeans that are too tight around the waist may lead to them ripping in those areas over time. When jeans start fitting loosely, they can no longer hold their shape as well as before. Not only do they need to be comfortable while being worn, but they should also look great on you. Ones that are too tight will make your legs and butt appear smaller, whereas jeans that cling to the body may give an unflattering appearance.
If you have wider hips, you may want to consider wearing darker colors or dark denim because it might help make them appear slimmer than if they were in lighter shades like light blues or grays. Try finding pairs made from stretchy fabrics because these often give more room, while being just tight enough in the waist.
If you are someone who has trouble finding jeans that fit properly, try not to get discouraged because there is a pair out there just waiting for you! Just take your time and shop around until you find one which feels like it was made specifically for your body type. When searching online, be sure to check sizing charts before committing so that they don’t end up being too small or too large when they arrive at your doorstep. Nothing will ruin an outfit more than having pants with broken zippers hanging by threads after only two wears.
When trying jeans, sit down or bend your knees while wearing them to see if they fit right when moving about
When you stand up and take a few steps around, be mindful if the jeans feel good when walking as well as when you are sitting down, it’s important to also check how much space there is in between each button (compared with where there should be some) to prevent overstretching of the material. If any part of the jeans feels uncomfortably tight – like overstretching fabric – this may indicate that they’re not quite good enough for you yet. This is particularly true once you’ve worn them for a day. Sometimes we don’t realize until after our clothes have been washed just how stretched out they are getting!
Before you settle on a pair, try them along with your shoes and favorite outfit to visualize how they will look in different scenarios.
If jeans start to become loose-fitting or baggy they will no longer hold their shape like before
Men’s jeans can be loose-fitting and it won’t matter since they will likely cover the shoes that are being worn. For women, this isn’t always an option so when shopping for a new pair of jeans she should make sure to find ones that fit just right.
It’s important to remember that certain jeans styles are more flexible than others so don’t feel bad if you can fit into a pair of skinny jeans today and find the same style doesn’t work for you tomorrow. The stretchy denim has come a long way from when they first launched in stores which means those old clothes will probably fall short on being able to handle your daily activities or even just sitting at home doing nothing all day long (although that still sounds pretty good).
In case of the jeans losing their shape, there are plenty of other options such as purchasing vintage-inspired clothing, different belts, shoes, loose tops to spice up the outfit and make it your own once again. Jeans are an important part of every wardrobe so it’s worth taking the time and effort in order to find a great pair that works for your lifestyle!
So, now that you found a pair of jeans that you are satisfied with, a few precautions are required. Always wash jeans in cold water and hang dry. Never put denim in the dryer as this will shrink your pants. Iron and hang jeans inside out to prevent them from fading. Make sure you avoid dying your favorite pair of denim anytime soon as this can also cause fading.
It can seem overwhelming when trying on so many different styles of jeans at once and the last thing you want to do is buy something that doesn’t fit well or looks terrible on your body type (unless it’s vintage denim from decades ago). That being said, don’t give up hope if you find yourself in this situation since there is one universal truth about all jeans: they can be altered to fit your body perfectly.
