A good pair of jeans is probably the most important item in any girl’s wardrobe. But finding the right pair of denim that really fits you and makes you feel confident and comfortable is kind of a mission impossible.
Skinny jeans were for way too many years a big-time favourite even though they don’t really suit everyone. Lately, we’ve been seeing many other models taking over the space that once belonged to skinny jeans in the denim universe and we're delighted about it!
How to know which one suits you best?
A well-cut pair of jeans is a good investment and the most versatile item you will ever own, this is why, although you can find very inexpensive jeans, good ones can cost up to 800 euros. Be careful, if you wear a cut that doesn't suit your body type, your jeans will be your worst enemy and totally ruin your look. A big part of being elegant, if not the biggest, is to know your own body and understand which are your strong features that need to be enhanced and which are the parts you need to show less. Not everything you see on the catwalks will suit you so don't to go around looking like a fashion victim. You have a mirror at home for a purpose, don't you?
To help you choose the right pair of jeans that will make you look fab, follow our tips:
Most girls dream of being tall to stand out in the crowds but, although you won't have problems to see the stage in a music festival, there are some downsides to being tall too. Finding jeans that fit you well is one since most of them will be too short for you, so the right pair of jeans would be either cropped or with extra-long legs. Because you're tall, you can wear flat shoes that look great with most jeans, especially with cropped jeans.
Being petite has many advantages, you are delicate, feminine and charming, plus, you will never suffer from not having enough space when flying coach but if you’d like to look taller, on the contrary to what many people believe, cropped jeans will do the trick for you. Darker straight-leg jeans or flares will also elongate your legs and if you pair them with high stilettos à la Victoria Beckham, which are really trendy right now, you will magically become much taller.
Twiggy would have never complained about having thin legs and actually, I don't think many people would, even today. You can wear almost any type of jeans, just avoid the ultra skinny ones or you will look like Popeye's Olive Oyl, not very sexy I would say. Slouchy jeans, flares and Palazzo pants look good on you as they will give you a bit more body.
After all those hours working out to have muscular super-toned legs, it can be a bit tricky to find jeans that fit well at the same time your thicker legs and waist, one will usually be too tight and the other too loose and vice-versa, so you should go for stretch jeans, wide Palazzo pants or slouchy jeans.
Long legs such as the ones of Giselle Bundchen or of the 80's supermodel known as "The Body", Elle Mcpherson, are amazing, we know, but if your legs are too long for your upper body, choose low-waist jeans to balance your silhouette, they can be slouchy jeans, flares, straight-legs, you name it.
If you feel that your legs are too short for your upper body, don't worry, just go for high-waist jeans, they will give the impression your legs are longer. Obviously, if you have a big tummy, please avoid short tops and do not tuck your shirt into your high-waist jeans, you want to hide those extra Easter eggs kilos, not show them off, so make sure you choose the right top that covers discreetly your belly.
If you fell your butt could look a bit curvier but just hate that burning feeling from doing squats, jeans with big pockets can help you look like Sofia Vergara without all the sweating and the pain, well, ok, maybe not "like" her but "kind of like her" ...
But if you are one of those who doesn't think the Kardashian's aesthetic is beautiful or elegant and, on the contrary, wished you had a little fewer curves and envy Kate Moss’ flat butt, go for boyfriend and slouchy jeans or flares with stretch.
If you'd like to have a flatter tummy but keep postponing your new year's diet to next Monday, high-waist jeans with stretch are the ones for you as they won’t add extra volume around your waist but again, please, do not tuck your shirt in nor wear short tops. Also, avoid at all costs tight low-waist jeans as you will only enhance your love-handles and look totally unelegant!
So, now that you already know which type of jeans suit you best, you only need to decide whether you’re going to wear bright coloured jeans, pale denim or the darker jeans as the ones worn in the years the 2000s, that are making a comeback in S/S’18 in smarter and more tailored looks!
