Your Guide to Perfect Jeans

Navigating the endless racks of denim can feel overwhelming, especially when every pair seems to fit differently. From deciphering sizes to understanding different styles and cuts, there's much to consider. However, here are some tips our stylists have gathered over the years that they love to share and follow. 

  1. Embrace Your Measurements

Knowing your measurements is one of the biggest steps to simplify denim shopping. Before pursuing the perfect pair, take accurate waist, hips, and inseam measurements. Knowing your numbers will help you navigate sizing and narrow down how many jeans you will need to try on. 

  1. Pay Attention to Waist and Rise

When trying on jeans, pay close attention to the waist and rise. The waistband should sit comfortably at your natural waist without digging in or gaping. Go for a rise that complements your body shape - our stylists will let you know if high-rise, mid-rise, or low-rise flatters you best. 

  1. Strike the Right Balance with the fit

Finding the ideal fit is about striking the perfect balance between comfort and style. Jeans should hug your curves without feeling constricting, allowing for ease of movement while maintaining a flattering silhouette. 

  1. Mind the Length

The length of your jeans can make or break your outfit. Aim for a length that grazes the tops of your shoes without pooling at the ankles. For longer styles, opt for a length that skims the floor when wearing heels. 

  1. Don't Underestimate Alterations

If you find a pair of jeans that you love but could be a better fit, invest in alterations. A skilled tailor can work wonders, whether taking in the waist, hemming the length, or tapering the legs. A little tailoring can transform a good pair of jeans into your new wardrobe staple.

  1. Trust Your Instincts

Trust your instincts when finding the perfect pair of jeans. If something doesn't feel right or look flattering, don't settle. Keep exploring until you see the jeans that make you feel confident, comfortable, and stylish.

  1. Your New Jeans: How to Prolong Their Life

In caring for your jeans, remember: less washing is better. Washing too often can fade the color and make them shrink. Turn your jeans inside out before washing them to help preserve the color. And when drying, avoid the dryer as heat can damage them. Instead, lay them flat or hang them up to air dry. These simple steps will keep your jeans looking fresh and lasting longer.
