Jeans are something we all have in our wardrobe. I know as a stylist and a woman myself that shopping for jeans is a difficult task. Let me help you; here are five helpful tips to use when shopping for jeans to flatter your shape!

Number 1 Know your shape. Here are the four most common shapes: Apple, Banana, Hourglass, and Pear. Click the highlighted links to help you determine what shape you are. Once you know your shape it will be easier to shop for jeans.

Number 2Look for a style and wash that draw attention to the right parts of your body. If you want a slimming effect then you should stay away from jeans that are distressed and go for a pair of dark denim. Dark denim is slimming and the most flattering wash for all shapes.

Number 3 Pay attention to the rise of the jeans. Low rise jeans cut a woman’s body across her hips, causing a “muffin top”, you should shop for a pair of mid rise jeans. When in the store ask an associate to help you find mid or high rise jeans. It is much more flattering for all shapes.

Number 4When trying on jeans take several sizes into the dressing room. This is a long process and takes time. Not every brand has the same size chart; you might be a 7 in one store and a 10 in another, do not be discouraged. Take your time and select a pair that is comfortable and flattering.

Number 5 Have your jeans tailored to fit your shape! Buying a pair of jeans right off the rack and having them fit you perfectly is nearly imnpossible. Finding a tailor to have your jeans hemmed, or taken in or out is important to have the most flattering fit for your shape. You can find a tailor at your local drycleaners or maybe you have a relative in the family who knows how to sew. It is the most helpful tip I can offer, as we are all not made the same!

Now take this information and go out and find that pair of jeans that is just right for you!!!

About Tylar

I am all about women knowing who they are, finding their own individual style, and not spending a lot of money doing so.  I believe in creating looks that are timeless yet practical and consistent with your own personality. I live to shop the clearance racks! I truly believe It’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Not one of us were created to look the same, so what looks good on one woman might not look good on another. So when shopping for yourself, it is crucial to know what looks good on you. Knowing what works on your shape can make the difference from an ordinary outfit to ex-ordinary. I think we should go through life giving it all we have and I apply this ideology when dressing myself. I know from my own experience that when having a not so good day I know that if I put on a nice dress or fun sassy top, I can guarantee that what ever sour mood I might have felt before starts to slip away when I slip into the clothes. First impressions are lasting so why not always try to look your best you never know who you might meet! These are all approaches I take when building my wardrobe, or getting dressed on a daily basis.

As far as about me as a person to share some insight with you. I clearly LOVE clothes. I but what I love more than the clothes themselves is how I feel when wearing certain outfits. I also LOVE to style for other people. I get such an amazing feeling when I have helped someone select an outfit that they feel good in. Or sometimes what is better than that for me is dressing someone in something they would never choose for their self and they end up loving it. Although I do love clothes I do not believe in spending a lot of money to look and feel good. I get a thrill out shopping clearance. The price tag does not define the worth of an item to me. What makes it worth it for me is how it makes me feel and knowing that I paid half the cost and still look GREAT!
