LET”S TALK DENIM


 How to find the best style for you
Jeans have been getting a lot of air- play and all it seems to have done is leave everyone confused. Not anymore.
  There’s boot-cut, skinny leg, low-rise, dark rinse, stretch, plus-size, zipper or buttons…
 you get the idea.
“For so many years, boot-cut jeans were it,” says Lucky fashion director Hope -Greenberg. “It  was the one thing that almost every woman went to. Boot cut is universally flattering, but the trend had to go somewhere else.” Designers Nicolas Ghesquiere, Kari  Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney have included for the look is just beginning to intrigue mainstream America. Let’s try to break this down.
Denim rules
Jeans can work on all woman, no matter what age, size, etc.-but not all styles work for all woman. Wear a style because it’s flattering, not just because it’s trendy. If you don’t have the legs for skinny cut jeans, stick with boot cut styles.
a. Find Age-Appropriate Jeans.
Woman in their 30s and 40s should try a straight leg jean with no bells or whistles. Jeans should look and feel age appropriate; you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard in a trendy jean. Choose a darker wash; some of the lighter washes will only highlight and call attention to the areas you may want to hide.
b. No Muffin Tops.
Batting a belly bulge? A boot-cut jean can help to balance out a heavier midsection. Women with a tummy typically have thinner limbs in which a boot cut will work nicely. If your legs are thicker, stick with a skinny leg jean to create balance. Make sure the jean hits across the belly, not above or below it. Also, make sure your top is long enough to cover raising your hand.
c. Check the Rear View.
Small pockets make any backside look larger; big pockets make most backsides look smaller; no pockets make hips look wider; embroidered or detailed pockets make every bottom look curvier.
 Let’s face it, we all have issues. Not many of us are blessed with model figures. The Trick is the minimize the bad and accentuate the good:
     Bootylicious?
If you are larger on the backside a rise that  fits   properly in the crotch can pose a problem. Look for jean with a lower rise in the front and a higher rise in the back. Avoid flap pockets flap pocket or pockets with heavy embellishment or embroidery-they only call attention to the rear. Instead, look for larger or angled pockets to  help  camouflage and flatter.
   

Pancake Butt?
You need to add some curves. Look for jeans with flap pockets, heavy embellishment or embroidery. Jeans with slightly higher back pockets can also help make the rear look lifted.

Large thighs?
Stick to dark colors and don’t wear your jeans too tight or too loose. Stay away from striated coloring that highlights your thighs. Also avoid high-waist and tapered jeans, which make thighs look larger. Instead, go for styles that offer a “relaxed fit,” and with a cut that sits slightly below your natural waist.
For the Appearance of Slim Hips
Look for jeans without front pockets or jeans with slit pockets and stay away from front patch pockets. But dark colors with stitching that is the same color ( or very close ) as the fabric. Avoid light stitching and designs.
To Prevent Gapping at the Waist
If your hips are much larger than your waist then you will probably have this problem. What to do? Wear stretch denim jeans and away from crisp or heavy fabrics such as cotton. Look for jeans that are cut lower in the front and higher in the back with a contoured waist band that will stay snug to prevent unsightly gaping. Also, if your jeans are too tight at the knees and thighs, they will pull down at the back when you sit.
