Five steps to perfect jeans

Comment on this story
jeans lib REUTERS Most of all, you should focus on your bottom. A pouch of fabric around the bum will only illustrate how your buttocks have collapsed.

Use these five steps to help you find the perfect pair of jeans:


With such a vast variety of waistlines to choose from, it’s important to find the right style for you. Casual and comfy low-waistline jeans make for an everyday, easy-to-wear pair of trousers, whereas a high-waisted pair will elongate your legs and hide any of those irritating lumps and bumps, when you’re aiming for that extra bit of glamour.


Whether you prefer loose and slouchy, or slim and fitted, make sure you pick the right size.

Squeezing yourself into a smaller size may seem like a good way to appear slimmer, but the correct size will leave you feeling much more comfortable and flatter your figure perfectly.

Women’s jeans come in a variety of suitable styles including on-trend boot-cut, straight leg or skinny jeans.


When looking for something a little more special than your basic pair of denim jeans, bear in mind the following tips to make sure you pick embellishments which will give you an altogether more flattering pair of jeans.

* If you’re a pear shape, choose darker coloured jeans and pair it with a brighter top to give the illusion of slimmer legs.

* Apple shapes should choose rear pockets closer to the seams to better show off a pert bum.

*Skinny jeans with an oversized top will emphasise slim legs.


Now you know what you’re looking for, try not to get too caught up in the excitement of having seen a pair of jeans you think you love. Always try before you buy. There’s nothing worse than getting home and realising the waist is too tight and the legs are too long.

Avoid any annoying mistakes and try the jeans that catch your eye on in a few different sizes. Don’t be embarrassed to take a few pictures either, to find the best pair for you. Remember that sizes may differ in other shops or from other brands.

Where to wear

Jeans are something no woman can live without. Always on trend, you can create both casual and formal outfits with this tip-top fashion staple.

For a special occasion, match your jeans with a pair of statement heels for a glam yet understated look. – The Independent
