When you invest in denim, it’s the beginning of a long (and intimate) relationship — and like any other long, intimate relationship, you want the pair you’re investing in to be the “one.” Faced with the hundreds of options available online and in a store, this may seem like an almost impossible choice to make. How do you choose the correct brand, the correct size, the correct shape, the correct wash? These six simple rules will assist to ensure that the couple you choose is the correct one to serve your body and lifestyle.
Since many modern brands size their denim according to waist measurements, it is best for the most precise fit to be measured. Take a measurement from your natural waist (the smallest part of your waist) using a flexible measuring tape and round it down to the entire number. So you’d be a size 28 if your waist is 28.5 inches. Once you understand your size, brand-wide differences are small. That implies that the remainder of the fit preferences boils down to other variables, such as the leg silhouette and the increase. Remember: on a couple of jeans, so never compromise the waistband’s fit.
Understand the Fit
Skew on the fitted, narrow side when selecting between dimensions, as stretch fibers are bagged with wear in most skinny jeans. If you don’t like how high or low your waist has been hit by the jeans, look for hints about the increase. A couple labeled “mid-rise,” typically at least eight inches offers more coverage because it reaches the waist higher, so the contour will show less generally. If the increase is too small, do not attempt to size up; this will only lead to a bad, unpleasant fit. Look instead for another style that suits your level of body and convenience.
Negotiate the Length
Making changes to the inseam is a minor change, but with the shoes, they are eventually going to wear, jeans should be changed. Flares, which are best suited for heels or wedges, should drop approximately one inch from the ground, while skinny jeans should reach the anklebone just or above. You can even cut the hem to show a raw edge to give a look of the moment to dark inky skinny jeans.
Take an approach
Make a test run before committing. Stand in front of a three-fourth mirror to see from behind how the jeans look. Then sit on the bench of the dressing room and do a squat or two to make sure there is no discomfort, the denim doesn’t stretch out, and you’re not going to reveal too much.
