There was a time when all I had in my closet was one pair of bootcut jeans. I had such a hard time finding denim jeans that fit that I just gave up. But after a lot of shopping and trying on different styles I’ve found what works for me. I’ve also added several different styles to my closet. So today I’m sharing my favorite denim styles below along with a few tips for picking out denim!
1) Skinny Jeans
It’s time to talk about your booty! I think a lot of people forget to check out the pockets when buying jeans but they are just as important as the length and style!
If you have a flat booty, (like me), pockets with flaps can help enhance your behind. The extra detail draws more attention to that area. I usually avoid big pocket details on dressier denim because I’m going for a sleeker look but for casual jeans I like it.
If you are more self-conscious about your behind, then a dark wash with a flat pocket is the way to go! They should be medium sized and placed in the center. This helps break up the width of your derrière!
Other things to think about:
Materials: Jeans should have a little stretch so they form perfectly to your shape. But not too much or they will stretch out and sag. Look for denim with no more than 2% spandex/lycra. That way it will stretch but still hold it’s shape. Cotton/Poly blends are a little stiffer but still provide some stretch and will hold their shape.
Care: Drying on high heat can damage the elasticity of your jeans so it is best to dry them on low heat or hang them to dry. I never put my jeans in the dryer!
If you are looking for a great pair of designer jeans for women or men you should check out True Religion. They really do have a wide variety of styles and sizes. As someone who is on the taller side, I love that they have a wide range of inseams – from 32″ to 36″. That way you can find the perfect length for you!
