Personal stylist in Hampshire tells us her top 5 tips for finding the perfect jean

5 top tips to finding your perfect jean

Finding the perfect jeans is like searching for the holy grail, but is possible with these simple tips.

Find your waist

Knowing where your waist is will help you  determine the rise of jean that will flatter your body shape the best. If you are pear or hourglass shaped, you will most likely look best in a high rise jean, whilst if you are a rectangle of inverted triangle, a mid to low rise will suit you better.

Think about the colour

If you are concerned about your bum and thighs opt for a darker jean with little to no distressing or embellishment. If you are lucky enough to have slender legs, make the most of them by wearing a lighter colour. 

Look at the fabric content

Jeans need to be comfortable but you  don’t want too much elastane in them as they won’t last. Fabric conditioner breaks down the elastane, so the higher the elastane content the sooner they will go baggy at the knees and bum. 2% elastane is ideal.

Balance your shape.

When choosing the fit of your jean, think about how to balance your shape. If for example you are a bootylicious pear shaped mama, you’ll want to look for a jean that skims the hips and thighs and then kicks out a little to balance your curves; such as bootcut and straight leg jeans. If on the other hand  you are a slim hipped inverted triangle, you will want to balance your broader torso with jeans that add a little volume to your lower half; boyfriend, mom and wide leg jeans will look fab on you.

Always go for a jean with belt loops.

I always recommend that you go for a jean with belt loops rather than without. Not only will this prompt you to add a belt to your outfit and instantly make it look more put together, but it makes the waistband much more substantial and less likely to fold or roll down
