Choosing the perfect jeans: Styles


image from pinterest

Finding the perfect jean can be dreadful. There are so many styles and it's hard to find that one type of jeans that fit you perfectly. A couple of years ago, I absolutely hated shopping for jeans. I was convinced that my body was just weird and those hours spend in the fitting rooms with jeans that looked horrible on me harmed my self esteem. Two years ago, I walked into a Levi's store and found three perfect fitting jeans. I've always struggled with a 'gap' because my waist is much smaller than my hips. The store clerk recommended me to try on a 'bold curve' jean. And to my surprise, it fit perfectly. I walked out of the store with three brand new perfectly fitting jeans. That one time helped me to look out for jeans with a high waistband that hugs my waistline.

Here are some facts about different jean styles and my tips on how to find the perfect jeans.

Choosing a style
I have to say that I only wear skinny jeans, because I feel most comfortable in them. However, it's always nice to try on other styles and see how they suit your shape.

- Slimming, especially dark colours
- Great with heels as well as boots or sneakers
- Great choice if you're petite

- Clean cut
- Helps to balance out particular body shapes
- Lengthen Legs
- Perfect if you're not into skinny jeans

- Creates a long, lean silhouette
- If you have curvy hips, bootcut jeans can balance out the body shape
- A bootcut jean helps draw the attention downwards towards the feet
- Accentuates slim thights

- Comfortable ;-)
- Slouchy yet feminine
- Isn't designed to be slimming, so if you have a curvy figure you should look for a high waist jean
- Great for athletic body shapes as they add volume and shape

Which style do you like best?




  1. Love the boyfriends!

  2. I hate jeans!!! They are so restricting; I tend to look for more stretchy denim if possible.

  3. SO hard to find the perfect pair! I always stick with skinny as I hate the cut of many other jeans. I'd love to branch out of my comfort zone and try something like the slouchy boyfriend fit ones! xx

    I love skinny and boyfriend jeans but it's always so hard to find a good pair! I usually go for Topshop Jamie jeans. ;)

  5. I've found my perfect jeans brand and it's Levis! I can buy them without even trying them on nowadays, I know which fit and size I need, it's heaven!

  6. Yeah the boyfriend jeans are back in style and they seem so comfortable that I really need to get my hands on a pair :)

  7. Stretch denim is also my favourite :) I love leggings made out of denim!
