Experiment with different styles of jeans
Jeans have been through numerous reinventions since the mid-nineteenth century, when Levi Strauss introduced their now-iconic riveted work pants. From different cuts, washes, embellishments and colors, it is possible for women of all shapes, sizes and fashion sensibilities to select a pair which suits their individual sensibilities. From expensive designer brands to high street favorites, the market is full of these comfortable jeans and it is a matter of matching a style, which flatters your body type, which will amplify the comfort and style factor.
Some colors, which are available, include classic shades of blue, black, brown, earth tones, and even neon tones. Among the most common shades, which are bought, are the blues, however, recent fashion trends for the year have ensured steady sales of neon and other bright shades, the wearing of which can safely be attributed to fashion trend followers who want to make bold statements through their clothes!
A host of choices are available for those who want to wear particular “washes”; aged, prewashed, acid washed, distressed or bleached, are just a few options.
An important aspect, which could make your jeans wearing experience comfortable or a complete nightmare, is the fit of the jeans which is selected. There are a number of sizes and styles available, each of which suits a particular body type by enhancing the wearer’s most flattering physical attributes. Straight leg styles of jeans measure 20 inches at both knee and leg bottom, while boot cut styles will have a flare of about 21 inches at the bottom with 19 inch width at the knee. Comfort fit styles and tapered styles have between 21-23 inches at the knee and 19-23 inches at the bottom. These sizes will help determine the right style and fit of your pair of jeans, based on your height and body shape.
Selecting the most flattering pair of jeans depends primarily on your body shape.
For pear-shaped women, the most flattering style would be a pair of boot cut jeans; their wide hems serve to balance out the hips and minimize large thighs and large calves. They are best paired with a pair of medium to high heel shoes in order to increase the wearer’s height. For those on the less curvy side, skinny jeans will hug your body and make the hips look wider; they are best paired with flat shoes. Trouser jeans are a godsend for those with short legs as they have a higher waist which gives a longer, more vertical look. Ideally the hem should end a little below the ankles.
One thing to consider which applies to all styles of jeans is to ensure that they fit the waist; you risk getting a distorted “muffin top” if the waistband cuts into your skin.
Different styles of jeans serve to add class, comfort and style to any fashion statement, and choosing a pair which is best suited for your figure will ensure a flattering look. Be sure to wear the appropriate pair of shoes and add matching bags and jewellery in order to complete your fashion statement.
