Finding the perfect pair of jeans is no easy feat. The right jeans are a staple in any wardrobe and can help you to achieve many styles and looks. When it comes to jeans I really do believe that you get what you pay for, investing in the perfect denim can ensure that they stand the test of time and fit like a dream. There are three main things to consider when buying jeans; fit, colour and brand.
First up, the fit. There is a huge variety in fit and style of jeans, whether you’re looking to follow trends or sticking to your own preferred style. Low-rise to high waisted, distressed mom jeans to super skinny to appliqué ripped boyfriend jeans, it all depends what you’re after. Don’t quite fit the way you want? No problem, there are plenty of stores out there. You have to know what you’re looking for and not settle. Plus the option is always there to adjust them yourself and experiment or go to a professional tailor. The possibilities are endless.
Next is the colour or wash of jeans you want. You could go for the vintage light blue wash of the 80’s, pure black for a flattering look or even two tone jeans to keep up with current trends. Denim comes in all colours and shades for any occasion, furthermore you can sew on patches, embroider them, rip them, fray them, anything you can think of to personalise them for you. The wonderful thing about jeans is they change from person to person so they are unique to the owner.
A crucial factor is of course the brand or where you buy them. There are some great vintage shops and markets if you’re on the hunt for some old school jeans. However if you want to keep up with denim trends look no further than high street brands such as Topshop, Cheap Monday and Monki, they always have a great selection of current jeans. On the other hand if you want tailored jeans on the higher end I would recommend my personal favourite, Levi’s. Why are Levi’s my favourite? This isn’t their first rodeo they know what they’re doing when it comes to denim. That being said many brands are great for jeans and it’s your personal preference that matters.
So you’ve found your perfect pair of jeans. From here it’s all about how you choose to style them.
