One of the biggest fashion envy moments a woman can have is checking out another woman in the perfect fitting jean. The envy stems from knowing how hard we search for the pair that fits all our bits just so. Whether it be your Kim K butt, athletic thighs, petite length, sexy hips or legs for days, it is never as easy as seeing a pair on a celebrity and going out to buy that exact pair.
My number one tip is…find yourself a tailor! I know it can be a pain but really….who has a sample body?! None of us. I know people that can find the perfect jean at Top Shop or H&M. I unfortunately am not that person. I have a slight length issue that is attached to some “athletic” thighs and non existent calves. So a skinny jean on me usually ends up looking like a straight fit and 3/4 length instead of full length. Other clients may suffer from being gorgeous and petite and need some hem length alterations.
If a tailor is not an option, then you must be willing to go to that dressing room with a friend, positive attitude and at least 10 pairs of jeans! Your friend must prove a truthful and kind opinion and be your runner and pull extra sizes. And please..never look at the size. No brand or style will ever fit the same. So get rid of the size stigma and just buy what feels and looks amazing.
Below is a small sample of some of my go-to brands and top styles for the season. This is in no way exhaustive but merely a step in a good direction.
What was the last pair of jeans you bought and LOVE!?
