Must Have Items: Denim

13 May

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. Work has been overly stressful and has left little time to blog. My next must have item is denim. Jeans can be casual or dressed up for a night on the town. Finding the right pair of jeans can be extremely difficult. I have a hard time finding jeans that are the right length. Below are some of the best jeans for different body types:

Tall Women: In order to find the best fit, you should always buy jeans where the hem falls at the bottom of the heel. That way you can ensure you won’t have any high-waters! The best brands I have found are Rock and Republic, The Limited, and Calvin Klein.

Petite Women: Straight leg jeans are the way to go. They will give the illusion of a longer leg. Stay away from boot cut and flare jeans. These will make your legs look stubby. Best brands include Rock and Republic and Banana Republic.

Hide the Tummy: If you are looking to hide your tummy, look for a mid-rise boot cut jean. Don’t go for jeans that hit too high or low on the waist. Best brands include Seven, Citizens of Humanity, Levi’s

Large Hips: The best jean will be a mid-rise trouser leg. This will help even out the hip and leg and will also give the illusion of a longer leg. Best brands include: Seven, Lucky, Gap, Banana Republic, Levi’s

Flat Tush: Look for jeans with a flap pocket and heavy embroidery. Best brands include Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Levi’s.

Big Tush: Do not look for jeans with pockets or embellishments. Find the rise that fits in the crotch. Best brands include Seven, Citizens of Humanity.

Top Heavy: Look for a jean with a lighter wash. Also look for a distressed denim. This adds the illusion of a larger bottom which will help balance the body. Best brands: Any.
