Denim is love, and jeans are the ultimate wardrobe staple. Still, you’ll want to make an informed choice about the kind of jeans that’ll work for you, and we want to help you with that. But before going there, let’s quickly discover the difference between denim and jeans, since both words are often used interchangeably. In simple terms, denim is the fabric, whereas a pair of jeans is the garment made using this denim fabric. Now that we are clear on the difference, here are the three things you should consider before buying your new jeans.
- Fit: Your jeans should fit you like a glove. In other words, they should fit you as if they were made only for you. They should give you a flattering look and make you feel good. You get it, right?
- Comfort: So your new jeans fit you well, but what about comfort? The feel of the fabric is super important too. You could like your jeans with some elastane for a bit of stretch, or you could like thick and durable fabric that gives an authentic denim feel, or you could like something in between. It’s a personal preference, really. All three things work pretty well.
- Style: Jeans come in all sorts of styles and cuts. They can be tight, loose, straight, baggy, flared, high waist, mid waist, and a variety of other styles. While deciding on your style, consider your body type, how different styles can balance out your proportions, and which style suits your lifestyle. For example, high waist jeans could be great for many of you, but they could make a few of you a bit uncomfortable too. Generally speaking, skinny jeans or slim-fit jeans work for most body types, and that’s a good place to start assessing your options.
Finally, bringing all these three things together, you should get yourself a pair of jeans that make you feel happy, comfortable, and confident. To put it differently, get whatever makes you feel like the best version of yourself. We’re super excited to assist you and will cover this aspect of selecting jeans in a future post.
