My Favorite Pair of Levi's
Let’s talk basics. The basics of denim.
As women, I think we all can agree that once we find that perfect pair of jeans…. they stay with us for YEARS, wearing them 3-4 times a week…. or at least that’s what I do.
Levi’s WORKS for me. I have large hips.. so I like to accentuate my waist to show off that I have curves and I’m not just a piece of bread. I also have shorter legs so finding a good pair of jeans is HARD! I’m usually about a size 26. A 27 fits my hips better but a 26 fits my waist better so yeah… I never REALLY could ever find that perfect fit.
Before I link the world’s most perfect jeans and the solution to my problem… let me give you guys a couple tips that will make jean shopping a little easier for you.
1.) If you are in a hurry at the store and can’t get into the dressing room to try on your clothes - or maybe you're trying on a new brand and don’t know what size you might be there. (cuz ya know how everyone varies a couple sizes depending on the store..) There is a trick that I learned from watching the PBS show called “ZOOM” when I was little. You can tell if a pair of pants will fit you, by placing the waistline of the jeans around your neck. If the waistline comfortably meets at the back of your neck, then the pants will fit! Cool, huh? Low waisted jeans don’t really work with this trick, but who wears those anyways...
2.) When you try on pants, someone once told me they should fit tight like you just had a big dinner. This way, when they inevitably loosen up over the day, they will be flattering and comfy and when you wash them and shrink again, they will still fit and look great! I always run into the problem where I try on 2 pairs of the same jeans in 2 sizes. One fits a little snug and the other fits a little loose. I ALWYS regret it when I buy the ones that feel a little loose… because by the end of the first day of wearing them, I feel saggy.
Now that we have got those tips out of the way… let’s talk wash. I am really into super light wash jeans as is everyone else on instagram. I also like a black or washed black pant. You just can’t go wrong with black, ever.
Now let’s talk fit and brands. I love a skinny jean… but not TOO skinny. I feel like the older I get the more I appreciate a looser fit more. I like my jeans to fit snug but still leave a little room for the imagination. I also dig a slim/ straight leg look. MAYBE a flare here and there depending on the style. My favorite brand of all time - Levi’s. I mean, c’mon. I also love the fit of Mother Jean’s, Citizens of Humanity, Paige, Free People brand, and i’m not gunna lie Zara has some killer jeans too.
Now introducing my favorite pair of jeans… maybe ever. I love the wash, I love the fit, the detail of the buttons and I love that I can dress these up with a heel or down with a t-shirt and sneakers.
I actually have 3 different colors in these jeans and they all fit a little different. I like to size down from my usual 26 or 27 for that snug, perfect fit.
