(a guide to finding the best jeans)
Finding the perfect pair of jeans is near impossible; finding something that fits just like a glove but with a little bit of breathing room, the perfect cut for year round. There’s also a million different styles. Not to mention they can be expensive. I have found one pair that fits that checks all the boxes in what pair of jeans should be like. Hugs my body, shows off my booty, gives me great legs. I would marry them if I could. The one thing I have learned is that the right pair of jeans are definitely going to be an investment, but on the bright side they will last you awhile.
Without further adieu here’s the guide for those desperately seeking denim and advice for those in search of the perfect pair of jeans!
A relaxed fit is full in the hips and thighs and the ends to the ankles (good for curvy bodies). As for anti-fit think 90s hip hop, 100% over exaggerated, and oversized. These anti-fit jeans look better on taller people. For an in-between look, opt for the soccer mom jeans and the baggy jeans, these are great for those with wide hips. Word of warning to the wise from the not so wise (me the not so wise) baggy jeans tend to make shorter people look more shorter.
Aka does my ass look good in these jeans? yes, yes, they do. but if you aren’t sure, just remember that jeans shouldn’t ride up in the back, and they shouldn’t be loose either. Opting for high pockets in the back creates this illusion of a well rounded behind.
What do Boot cuts, slim cuts, flare jeans and even high waisted jeans have in common? They create the look for long legs.
Nowadays you can buy jeans that already have that worn-in 90s cool girl jeans. If you want to wear them in yourself, you can simply wear them everyday, or you can try this: Roll the jeans in a ball, wash in water with a little bit of bleach already diluted in. Then rub sandpaper, let them dry in the sun for a faded look.
If you pay more do you get more?
I had 3 different tabs open comparing prices of jeans, I wanted to make sure that I was spending my money right. I am not financially stable enough to be spending 100+ dollars on jeans, and if I do so I want to invest in the right pair. You feel? Most denim is going to be more or less the same, but there’s going to be some variety, what you pay depends on how the jeans are made, like different fabric treatments. Labeling and packaging and more expensive details such as zippers, and details all come into play when purchasing jeans. If you want to spend some coins on jeans, I’d check out Levis, Reformation, or Page. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money check out your local thrift store. (warning though the thrift might have a lot a lot of jeans and it can be overwhelming)
Dressing room tips?
Take a friend with you. Who you can count on for devastatingly honest opinion. When shopping for a pair of new jeans, as you walk out check out the look in their face that should give you a quick verdict. Second, walk around with them squatting down, shit while you’re at it, do a cartwheel. Finally bring your favorite shoes, heels, or sneakers, so you can see how they look together.
What’s the best way to wash them?
When buying a new pair of jeans, you must remember to wash a new pair separately because the die might run and run in the surrounding clothes in the dryer. Also don’t wash more than three pairs together because they will get stuck together, Or is that just an urban legend my mother has told me?
