Jean Therapy

Jeans are without-a-doubt a classic when it comes to clothes; but only if they’re a good pair of jeans does it mean anything.

Finding a pair of jeans that feels as good as your favourite sweater is rare, but when it happens it’s magic! In addition, with autumn coming relatively soon, (and therefore colder days), I’ve cultivated a short list of my must-have jeans in order to help anyone struggling to find that perfect pair.

No.1 A Classic Brand 

As jeans are indeed a classic, don’t stray far — go for a classic brand. Levi’sWedgie Icon Ultra High-Rise Straight Jeans’ are a great, classic, straight-leg jean (and make your bum look fabulous as an added bonus)!

No.2 Feel Distressed

Distressed isn’t usually a positive word when describing something, but when it comes to jeans, distressed can be amazing! Combine rips and a faded look with a boyfriend fit and you’ll look perfectly distressed (in a good way)! BDG brand has great, distressed, boyfriend jeans perfect for an early autumn day.

No.3 Hi, High-Waisted! 

I know from personal, long-torso, experience that any chance to make your legs longer is one to take advantage of. High-waisted jeans do just that! By raising up the waistline, your legs will look longer (and wouldn’t that be lovely for us shorter girls)! American Apparel really knows how to do high-waisted so below is the ‘Easy Jean’; one of my favourites and oh-so high-waisted!

No.4 Beautiful Black

Jeans are already so versatile and when they’re black, you can pair them with even more! Like American Eagle’s ‘AEO Denim X4 Super Hi-Rise Jegging’, go for a slim style and you’ve got yourself a great pair of go-to jeans!

With these styles in mind, it’s definitely time to hit the stores!

Happy jean shopping!
