Don’t be a jeans snob – embrace them and invest in some quality jeans. Expensive or inexpensive this key item can be worn with a T and some thongs, dressed up with a suit jacket and some shiny leather shoes or über cool with a leather jacket.
Like the suit, there are many different styles of jeans however, if you use these simple tips when choosing, you can’t go wrong: Boot Cut(tapers to the knee and flares slightly at the bottom, good for most body types), Skinny Leg (fit tightly throughout the leg, good for those who are thinner), Wide Leg (relaxed and loose from the waist down, good for athletic body types) and Straight Leg (straight from top to bottom, good for those who are a triangle shape).
Then choose your fit: Slim (sit tight in the seat and thigh), Regular (slim in the seat and thigh but loose in the leg), Relaxed (loose in the seat and thigh without being baggy) or Loose (baggy throughout the seat, thigh and leg). This decision is purely at your own discretion however, my advice is to steer clear of any pant that is too baggy; baggy = daggy!
Now for your preferred wash/colour: dark, distressed, dirty, stone or black – this is purely up to you however, you should always be aware that darker colours will create a slimming look.
If you’ve got an overload of full length jeans or love the outdoors, why not go for cut-offs – they’re man chic and a simple solution to the warmer months.
