Jeans, Jeans, Jeans! We love them, but we  hate looking for them! No matter what your size it still takes trying on a million pairs to find the right ones. There are however a few tricks to cut down on this frustration.

  • First of all, find the right style and cut for you. Your hunt for the right pair will be cut down a whole lot if you target in on the right style and cut.
  • Second, what is the right shade; darker colors are universally flattering and are a safe bet for all. However, if you have a slim or boyish figure you can play with different shades and textures.

 

  • Third, pockets.  I insist on pockets no matter what the size of your frame is. No pockets are just too unflattering and highlight any possible imperfections.

 

Okay, now we covered what you do before you hit the dressing room now we can talk about what to do when you are in there…

v  Waist. How does the waist feel? Sit down, and stand up, are you doing adjusting as you stand and sit? Do you feel a breeze on your derriere? If you do that means you need to get a higher waisted jean. This leads me to my next point…

v  Rise. Low rise looks good on shorter torsos and high on taller torsos. Mid rise is universally flattering.

v  The fit. Your jeans should be flattering on you. This means no bunching or sagging in the butt or crouch. Your jeans should skim your body and not be super tight.  Also denim should have a bit of stretch, so check for spandex or other stretchy fabric on the label.

v  Length. If you are wearing a heeled shoe make sure the pants cover the back of the shoes. If you are wearing flats be sure the jeans hit at the ankle or floor skimming. It is not attractive to have dirty, dragging jeans.

Now that we have technical issues out-of-the-way, let’s get to basic styles!

The basics are: Boot cut, Skinny, Boyfriend and trousers. These are the styles that are in for the long haul. It would be wise to have a pair of each. Just make sure you have the pair that is right for you!

Here are a few of my fave jean shopping spots…

Charlotte Russe and Forever 21. Their prices are affordable and they have trendy styles.

Old Navy. They carry a wide range of sizes including plus size and are also affordable.

Nordstrom. Nordstrom has a wide selection of premium denim and also in-between sizes such as 9/10.

The Buckle. The jeans here are pricey. However, they usually have a jean specialist on hand to make sure you get the right fit!

Well we have covered a lot! I hope this helps. If you have questions just ask I would love to help you! Reach me at:

Hey Dolls! My name is Latrenda and I love all things fashion! I love incorporating new trends with the classics and making them my own. I also love cooking, redoing antique furniture, most specifically vanities and much more! I would love it if you followed me so that we can have some fun together. Below you can read about how I came up with the name Ruby Madison! What does the name Ruby Madison mean? Ruby comes from Proverbs 31 where the Bible is describing a woman of Noble Character: 10A capable, intelligent, and [b]virtuous woman--who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. Proverbs 31:10 The Amplified Bible Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. Proverbs 31 The Message Bible Madison comes from Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York. Madison Avenue is known as the “fashionable road” where the most well known fashion designers, hair salons etc. are located. Therefore, we come to the name Ruby Madison which stands for a fashionable woman of noble character and strength that looks good while navigating in her everyday life.© Whether she stays at home with her children or works outside the home or both; a Ruby Madison Woman can handle it all and does it all with style.
