Top Tips on Shopping for Denim

Find your fit

The most important part of selecting a perfect pair of jeans is to be aware of your body shape and what suits it best. Some resources online such as fit guides and size charts are helpful, however the most effective way to know what looks good on your body is to be measured or to try on various types (bootcut, flares, low rise, etc.) in a store. If you have an idea of the right style you should be looking for, what could be a frustrating experience made that much easier, especially when shopping online.

Quality over quantity

Investing in designer or high quality jeans is a smart way to make your money go further. It may seem overwhelming at first to spend so much cash on one pair of pants, however they will typically last longer and be more durable, thus having to be replaced less often. One of the top brands for denim jeans for women is True Religion which offers a wide variety of super trendy collections as well as classics fits for the modern fashionista.

Mix and match

There are so many styles when it comes to this staple that the outfit options are endless. There's your typical distressed or ripped jeans for that edgy look, dyed or printed ones for a splash of personality, or even patchwork and acid-washed for a pop culture throwback. It's also a nice idea to fill your closet with some everyday essentials like solid black or white straight leg jeans which can be matched with almost any top, including blue denim, for a chic look.

When in doubt, go simple

If you are in the market for some new denim and don't know which option to go with, you can truly never go wrong with a dark wash skinny jean. It looks great on every single body shape and can be styled in countless ways from formal to casual for ultimate versatility. Right now the super tight, legging style is on trend and fortunately figure flattering for all sizes and comfortable as well.

What type of denim do you wear?


  1. I absolutely LOVED this post! I feel like I've only just found the jeans that suit me down to a tee after so many awkward purchases through my teenage years. Now I can't go past my Topshop Jaime Jenas... Speaking of I need to purchase another few pairs :P

  2. You are so sweet Sarah! & I completely agree, so many unfortunate, ill-fitting years haha. I've heard the best things about Topshop jeans, I definitely need to get my hands on a pair x

  3. Oh man, I had these jeans from the Gap about and they were perfect. I even had two pairs and I wore through them. I should go find them on ebay or etsy. They were definitely super dark indigo skinny jeans.

  4. I hope you find them! I distinctly remember owning a pair of Tommy Hilfiger jeans that I believe I found at TJMaxx, and they fit me so well I loved wearing them as often as I could. I don't know what ever happened to them or what style they were, but I just love that feeling you get when wearing the perfect pair :)
