2 The Perfect Jeans
Perhaps it’s an oxymoron to say “perfect jeans” in the same sentence, but it can be done. Understanding that my perfect jeans aren’t your perfect jeans, here are a few guidelines you can follow to ensure success.
1. When shopping for jeans, go to a store you are comfortable in and where you know the salesgirls will help you—and not make you feel fat. Grab as many pairs of jeans that you can and try them all on. Experiment with different rises (high vs low), widths (skinny, wide leg) and lengths (30″, 32″, 34″ and, for those long legged ladies, 36″).
2. Avoid jeans with rips and too much distressing. Those can defo be cute, but are too trendy for the classic pair of perfect jeans.
3. Stick with darker washes, which retain their classic status and are uber flattering.
4. Jeans with a slight boot cut (not flared) are also classic but more importantly hang nicely over your shoes.
5. Many women buy multiple pairs of jeans for differing heel heights (ie flats versus 2” and 4” heels). A huge faux pas is wearing jeans that are too short for your heels.
One of my current classic style icons is Jennifer Aniston. Nobody can deny she always looks fabulous in her perfect jeans, not to mention her perfect hair.
