Shopping For Jeans

21 Feb

Whether you’re petite, curvy, lean, 30 or over seventy, there’s an ideal pair of jeans for you.

Great jeans (like these) will make you feel stylish and confident. They will fit in all the right places and feel comfortable.  They’re one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can have in your wardrobe.  You’ll be able to wear them to work on casual Friday with a blazer and boots, on the weekend with a t-shirt and casual sneakers and to a party with heels and a blouse.

However, finding a pair of jeans that are flattering and stylish can be frustrating and overwhelming; after all there are literally hundreds of different brands, styles, washes and fits to navigate your way through.

Because there are so many options available, it’s not uncommon to hear someone say they returned home from a jeans shopping expedition exhausted and dissatisfied or even worse – with a pair of “they’ll just have to do”  jeans.

Do you need new jeans but have no idea where to start?  Then my new styling session is for you.

The idea is that we only shop for a new pair of jeans (or two) for you. Perhaps your current ones need updating or you feel that you’d like to sample some different styles to what you’re already wearing – maybe something new and fresh for autumn. (Sick of your skinnies?)

The session is for one hour – maybe in your lunch break or after work.

*If, by chance, we are able to find the perfect pair of jeans in 10 minutes, you can use the extra time leftover to shop for something else.  We’ll play it by ear.  (Obviously though, I will not be researching anything else for you, so it will be off the cuff)

Just to get you thinking, these are a few things some of my clients have not known about jeans, til I taught them.

  • The placement and shape of the back pockets to give you the best butt shape
  • What to avoid to not make the butt, hips and thighs look bigger than they are.
  • What rise to look for (ie Length from crotch to waist band.) Low rise, mid rise, high rise, etc.
  • What the most flattering style is for your body shape
  • How to prevent buying jeans that stretch out and become baggy every time you wear them
  • Whether whiskers work for your shape (ie Pre-fabricated creases that create a broken-in and worn look in the denim at the crotch/upper thigh level.)
  • What length you should wear them
  • The shape of the back yoke. (Which will have an effect on how flattering they are on your butt)
  • How they should fit at the knee.
  • Where to shop

*Of course I’ll also answer any questions you might have about taking care of your jeans, altering them, and one of the most common questions I get, what shoes to wear with them.  (How to wear ankle boots with them is a query I get regularly.

An added bonus is that at a few of my favourite stores for shopping for jeans, including Levis, Country Road, Trenery and Saba, I receive up to a 35% discount.  (Which applies to not only jeans)

The price of a one hour jeans shop is $130 for one hour/$195 for 1.5 hours.

*You can do a jeans shopping session with a friend or two, and share the cost, however, an hour might be a bit tight.  I’d advise an hour and a half or two.  (We can chat about it!)
