Jeans is a must-have staple in anyone’s closet and is probably the most worn item because of its versatility. Simple for everyday outfits and effortless to dress up for happy hour, jeans are important to our everyday wardrobe. But what’s even more important, is how jeans fit our bodies. The fit of our jeans can make or break our outfits, so here are seven tips on how you can rock those jeans day to night.
The back pockets of our jeans are crucial to making our behind flattering. Try looking for small pockets that are placed higher up in the jeans to create a perky illusion to your butt. Avoid wearing jeans with huge back pockets placed lower on the behind. The last thing you want is a flat, unflattering behind.
Pay attention your body shape and what kind of silhouette you’re trying to achieve. Consider your best and worst features, so you can choose the right pair of jeans to compliment your shape. For curvy or pear-shaped bodies, a stretch in a straight leg will slim down the hip. If you’re tall with long legs, low to mid rise styles compliments your structure. But if you’re petite, high-waisted jeans will elongate the legs.
The color of your jeans is another factor that can make or break your outfit. If you’re looking for a slimming look, try opting for darker denim washes and vice versa with lighter fades. Remember, wherever there is lighter fading is what will draw the eye to that area.
We all have unique body shapes and sizes. Consider alterations to fit your specific measurements. Be sure you seamstress measures from the back of the leg or heel to get an accurate mark when altering your jeans.
According to the type of cut of jeans you’re wearing, it’s important to pair it with the right shoes that will compliment them the most. Whether you’re wearing skinnies, boot-cut, or a pair of mom jeans, heels or heeled boots will definitely lift the butt higher and slim out your thighs.
If you have a pair of jeans that fit you like a dream, take very good care of it! Consider the wash and care instructions it comes with to make sure the fabric, color, and fit is maintained properly. The last thing you want is a favorite pair to lose its shape or damage to its fabric.
When in doubt, wear shapewear. Shapewear is an ultimate lifesaver when it any outfit. But with jeans, it can work miracles. Shapewear when worn under jeans can slim and smooth, while keeping you comfortable all day long!
