Jeans, jeans, jeans, they are everywhere, and for the unfortunate majority who have no idea how to wear the latest fashions, can prove a disaster zone for many of us. Whether you love skinny jeans, carrot style jeans, or boyfriend style jeans, there are a few universal techniques to apply when wearing jeans, and here, we will describe the most pertinent techniques to heed.
Firstly, never be put off by the name. You do not have to be skinny to wear skinny jeans, nor look like a carrot to wear carrot jeans, nor be in a relationship to wear boyfriend jeans! Use the name only to understand the look, not to inform any assumption concerning who can and who can’t wear a particular style.
Curves and Stuff
The most important thing to remember is that the tighter the fit, the more the curves are revealed. Skinny jeans highlight curves, if you feel that you are a little curvier than you wish to be, opt for a form-fitting straight leg, rather than a tight fit. Excessively loose jeans add bulk, so will make you appear larger than you are, if you feel you are overweight, avoid boyfriend jeans. Carrot jeans are great for curvier women and women without curves, as they are form fitting at the top, but taper into a narrow leg at the bottom, highlighting curves, yet narrowing the leg.
What to wear with different styles of jeans
As a rule of thumb, you must balance your outfit. If your top is tight, then you should wear looser fitting trousers, if your trousers are tight then you should wear a looser top. Conversely, however, if the top you are wearing is form fitting, then form-fitting trousers are best, because they are neither loose nor tight.
With very tight jeans, such as skinny jeans, you should wear long and floating tops that reach the top of your buttocks at least – they must be buttock length or longer. Never show any part of the navel when wearing skinny jeans.
With boyfriend style jeans and carrot style jeans, you should wear a tight fitting top that should be no longer than your hips. With boyfriend style, jeans longer tops will make you appear shorter and stouter than you are, with carrot styles jeans; longer tops hide the top of the jeans, which are the focal part of the outfit.
When wearing skinny style jeans, the best style of shoe to wear are any that sport a heel (unless you are very tall, in which case you can get away with wearing flats). If you really want to wear flat shoes, then make sure that they reveal some flesh, so gladiator sandals are ideal.
With carrot style jeans or boyfriend style jeans, you should opt for flats. Cowboy boots, military boots, ugg-style boots, and desert boots are all suitable.
