The Constant Search
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that every girl must be in need of that perfect pair of jeans. You know, the pair that shape the thighs and lift the bum; that sit nicely on the hips with no gaping waistband. Jeans that avoid the creation of that dreaded muffin top.
We long for that moment when your fingers reach out to perform the all important material test, and discover that supple denim. The moment your eyes move down to check the pockets, the zipper, and the cut of the leg. When they sweep for any outlandish logos, embroidery or fancy stud-work, and find nothing to dislike.
Finding the Perfect Pair
Forget diamonds; jeans can be your best friend as well. If they fit properly, they could be the new favourite thing in your wardrobe. It’s not easy to find the perfect pair, so be prepared to trawl aisles, check labels and fight off the other girl who is sniffing around the “super skinny super low” in 28/32.
With so many styles out there, it’s also hard to know which style will suit your body shape. Do you opt for skinny jeans, straight legged or boot cut? Slouchy boyfriend, ripped, black, pale wash or coloured? It may be helpful to do your research, as there are plenty of websites which are tailor made to help you choose the perfect style to suit your shape. Here’s a few:
- Very.co.uk for their stylish collection of black jeans
- H&M for a range of jeans that won’t break a bank
- Net-a-Porter for that designer touch
A National Obsession
Many women in Britain admit to having more than thirty pairs of jeans, most of which go unworn. Some pairs are waiting patiently to be squeezed into after that half a stone has been shifted. Or it can work the other way around, with women holding on to their “fat girl” jeans to remind them to hold back on the takeaway pizza.
The Genius of Jeans
Jeans are so practical and easy to pull on from day to day. Gone are the days when jeans were only suitable for cowboys, builders or women with perms in 80s movies.
Struggling to pick an outfit? Reach for your jeans. They are great with a shirt or blouse on an evening out. Wear your old ones to decorate in and your new ones to party in. Plus, they’ll keep your legs toasty in winter. Rip them up in the summer, or chop the legs off altogether to fashion some DIY hot pants. Most of all though, the best way to wear them is with confidence.
