Buying Jeans: How to Find the Perfect Pair
Jeans are a wardrobe staple for every woman. Unfortunately, jeans are also one of the most challenging pieces of clothing for which to shop. But with the right mindset and a few simple strategies in place, shopping for jeans can actually be productive and fun.
Viva Variety: Allow Enough Dressing Room Time
The key to denim shopping is to allow yourself time to find the right pair. In most cases you are not going to find a perfect fit at the first store, so remain open minded and confident that even if the first store doesn't have what you are looking for, those perfect jeans are out there waiting for you. Give yourself at least 45 minutes at each store and try to visit 3 or more stores to make sure you try a variety of jeans.
Trying a variety of jeans will help you understand which styles work best for your body. A brand that looks great on your friend might not work for you. Try different washes and cuts. Experiment with the weight of the material and how much, if any, stretch or spandex you want in the mix. Sometimes jeans with a bit of spandex will help lift your rear or hold in your tummy. Too much and it might feel like the jeans are sticking to every curve you have.
