How to Choose the Right Pair of Denim Pants for Women

Every woman should have at least one pair of denim pants in her closet, but it can be tricky to find the best jeans that fits right and can flatter one’s figure. The selection process can become more challenging and overwhelming once you encounter different types of cuts, washes, and styles, too. Hence, consider the following tips to find the right pair of denim pants:

  1. Measure yourself – When you know your measurements, you can reduce the chances of buying ill-fitting jeans. One of the most common mistakes we tend to make when shopping for denim pants is buying a size that is too big or too small, thus, compromising their look or comfort. Hence, take a tape measure and note your measurements around the waist, hips, the length from your hip bone to the bottom of your ankle, and the length from your crotch to the ankle bone.
  2. Determine your body type and shape – Certain cuts and styles of jeans will flatter certain body types. For instance, bootcut or flared, high rise, and skinny jeans should flatter most triangle and pear-shaped women. Skinny jeans, however, can flatter almost all shapes, as long as they come in a wash and rise that is flattering.
  3. When in doubt, go for jeans in a darker wash – Darker jeans will flatter just about any body type and size, and they tend to be more versatile, whether you want to look casual or polished. You can wear them with just about anything, too, including a chambray top in a lighter shade, in case you want to try the denim on denim trend.

Refer to the manufacturer’s or brand’s size chart – Manufacturers and brands may differ in their sizing. For example, the sizes of a certain brand’s jeans may run smaller than your usual size. Hence, take time to check their size chart to compare your regular size with theirs.

To avoid looking too plain, wear a statement necklace and a pair of basic pumps. An alternative would be to wear a white button-down top with your distressed jeans and tuck it in for an effortlessly chic look. Finish the look with your favorite pair of oversized sunglasses, a classic purse, and boots.

Distressed denim jeans can go with just about anything in your wardrobe. Another way to dress casually with them is to wear a tank top with a cardigan and sneakers.

They look great with a tank top that is tucked into the pants, a flowy kimono-style cover-up, and flat sandals or ballet flats for a casual and comfortable look. For a boho-chic look, pair distressed denim jeans with a loose tunic and finish the look with a hat.
