Jeans are one of the most classic pieces you can have in your wardrobe, but you want to make sure that they’re the right ones for you. While you’re searching for the perfect jeans, there are some things you can keep in mind to make the process go smoother and end successfully.
Follow these 9 rules to make sure that your denim suits you:
#1. Choose denim for any place
Don’t be afraid to wear denim for all occasions. Whether you’re spending a casual Saturday morning with your family, or hitting the town at night, the right pair of jeans can be worked into any scenario. Think about cut, wash, and the things you pair with them.
#2. Focus on style
It’s easy to go with the current style flow and fall prey to choosing a pair of jeans that simply doesn’t suit your body. Try to think differently about the jeans you buy, and always try on many different styles. There’s no such thing as an out of style jean, as long as it looks great on you.

#3. Avoid mistaken sizing
One of the most difficult parts about finding the perfect pair of jeans is discovering you’re real and correct size. This also depends on the brand of the jeans, as they all seem to be sized differently. When you find a pair that you look, try on different sizes to find your best fit. Better to choose the smaller size when you’re in between two because it will stretch to mold to your body.
#4. Adjust jeans as needed
Don’t worry about jeans being too long, originally. If you find a pair that fits you well around the waist, buy them, and then tailor accordingly. Depending on the style of the jean like skinny or bootcut, you will want to hem them to specific lengths. Think about how you plan to wear them before making the cut yourself or bringing them to a professional.
#5. No messy cuffing
Cuffing jeans seems to be the new trend, and it can look very stylish when done correctly. It all depends on the type of fit your jean has. If it’s a looser jean, then you can make bigger and wider cuffs for a good look. Whereas skinny jeans will look best with thinner cuffs. Play around until you find your ideal look.
#6. Make the cut
If you’re more of a free spirit and don’t like the polished looks of cuffing or proper hemming, go ahead and trim your jeans with your free hands. It will give them a more retro and carefree style, which can be very attractive, as well. Just be sure to measure your cutting line at least twice so that you cut only once.
#7. Go all out in denim
There’s no rule that says you can’t wear denim on denim, in fact it’s totally stylish. When you choose to go all denim, wear two different colored denims and dress it up with accessories for a more pulled together look.
#8. Let jeans know your shape
Jeans are the type of fabric that does change over time. That’s why you want to make sure to give them plenty of time on your body. The more you wear them, the better they will fit you. Don’t be afraid to walk and move around in them either. That will give them the best looking and most comfortable fit possible.
#9. Maintain variation
While you most likely have a favorite pair of jeans that you turn to when you’re not sure what to wear, it’s good to have a collection to choose from. Keep a variety of styles and colors on hand so that you can choose your pair based on the day’s purpose.
Denim is always stylish as long as you know how to wear it right.
