Ladies, we all know how important denim is in our wardrobe. Whether it’s a pair of jeans to throw on for a lazy day at home or a great pair of skinnies that we can wear on a night out, without denim we know we’re in trouble.
You’ll probably know that men aren’t the best at choosing jeans, but we’re just as liable to committing a fashion faux-pas as our better halves. You don’t need to worry, however, as we’ve put together this great guide that will help you choose the perfect pair of jeans. You’re Welcome
Shop the High Street
Seriously, girls, if you’ve fallen for the “designer denims give a better fit” line, then you need to put that to the back of your mind right now! You can get great denim at a fraction of the price on the high street, without sacrificing anything when it comes to style.
Hit the shops now- we’re loving ASOS and Cheap Monday’s offering right now- and try on all your favourite looking denims in all the stores you normally shop in. If you can’t find anything you like (but we’re sure you will!) then you can start thinking about designer.
Be Brand Loyal
If you do go designer, then look at the iconic denim labels like Levi and Wrangler first. It doesn’t matter how expensive jeans by Diesel or Ted Baker might be, denim-centric brands are going to be better. They’ve been making jeans for so long they could probably do it in their sleep.
Play Around With Cuts
The general rule of thumb for jeans is that shorter girls should go for a high waisted pair, whilst taller girls should avoid skinnies. Slim girls should go for slim and straight fits, while fuller figures should go for bootcut and relaxed cuts.
This is all sound advice, but the reality is that you don’t know what a pair of jeans looks like until you’ve tried it on!
We don’t want to descend into a “different cuts in different shops” rant, but it’s true. Slim cut in one shop means something totally different in another. Once you’ve found a style you love, look for some more!
Don’t be scared to Spend
If you find a pair of jeans you love – the perfect pair – don’t think about it, just buy them! If you get buyer’s remorse later you can always return them to the shop, and it’s nothing compared to the feeling you’ll have if you put the denim down and return later to find it’s gone! Heartbreak right there.
