So many women have trouble finding jeans and don’t enjoy the trials and tribulations most of us go through to find that perfect pair. So we decided enough is enough!
There are so many fantastic denim brands that are producing huge varieties of styles that we know there is a pair to suit everyone and our aim is to help you find yours! Or if you’re already addicted to your denim (like us) then we can advise you on how to wear the hottest new styles to add to your existing collection!
At The Dressing Room we are all trained stylists and are experts in knowing what’s what when it comes to denim. So, where is the best place to start when trying to find that essential wardrobe staple jean?
1. CHOOSE YOUR STYLE
Firstly I would say it’s good to have a rough idea of the style you are looking for ie: Skinny, Straight, Bootcut BUT don’t completely dismiss anything you have never tried.
There are a lot of cliches in the ‘fashion world’ about different body shapes sticking to specific cuts of jeans, I would not advise to follow that methodically. One style of skinny jean can fit completely different to the next, so don’t get scared off if you’ve had a bad experience – it happens to us all!
2. CHOOSE YOUR RISE
If you are conscious of your ‘middle section’ and don’t want the dreaded ‘muffin top’ I would advise to opt for a mid or high rise Jean. The following are all fantastic options for this:
Lower rises can look great too, especially if worn more slouchy at the waist, which Current/Elliott do really well.
3. CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
At The Dressing Room we also advise to buy your denim tight.
- Premium denim is made so it’s super soft and comfortable to wear, which is one of the main selling points but it does make the fabric more likely to stretch
- All of our brands go up in half sizes, which makes it so much easier to get the size just right for you
- If you are trying jeans on and they feel ‘just right’ our advice would be to go down half a size, to allow them to give
Yes, it may sound crazy but if the size feels a little snug at the time of buying it is usually the right one to go for. Don’t push it though ladies – if that button’s bursting they are too tight!!
4. DON”T BE SCARED!
The list of possibilities to consider when denim shopping could go on forever:
- Which type of wash do you want?
- How much stretch do you like in the denim?
- What occasion you are buying them for?
The main point to remember though is to not be daunted by the amount of options available. My advice is to seek help from someone that knows what they are talking about so they can do the thinking for you!
