How To Choose The Flattering Length For Skinny Jeans According To Your Height

Finding the perfect jeans is never an easy task. Most manufacturers create their jeans designs for standardized figures and then adjust them to different sizes and heights proportionally. The results are, judging from our joint experience, less than perfect. The reason is that while sharing a size with lots of women, we all have different leg length and height. These proportions significantly affect the way the jeans look on us, especially if the initial design wasn’t created thoughtfully. So let’s forget about the “Lucky Jeans” movie where one pair fits all. It’s time to find you a perfect design according to your height. Smaller Girls Smaller girls tend to need a shorter inseam length for their jeans, as well as consider the height of their hips and knees which can distort the skinnies’ original design. Avoid: Baggy jeans. They will visually make your bottom look heavy and unfit. The key is to keep your silhouette balanced and not add unnecessary volume to hips. Baggy jeans will also make your waistline visually lower, torso longer and your legs shorter.Boxy-cut jeans. Boxy skinnies are similar to baggy jeans, because sharp, loosely fitting cuts will add more weight to your thighs and hips. Petite girls are lucky to create tender and cute looks, but boxy designs will make their silhouette square-like and angular.Too long jeans. Sometimes it may hurt to turn down a perfect pair because it is too long but jeans that don’t sit right will make you look ridiculous. It’s not only about the length of hem, but also the placement of the knee and hips.Jeans where inseams length is shorter than 21 inches. It will make your legs looks shorter and heavier. Choose: Long flares. They create an optical illusion, so your legs look long and lean. Together with high heels it’s your easy recipe for an elegant and memorable look.Slim and straight fits. If you are a petite lady, flatter yourself with skinny jeans or straight leg jeans. It will accentuate your natural body balance and create a proportioned look.Ankle length styles. Smaller girls shouldn’t wear capris because they will shrink their legs’ length. However, ankle length skinnies will be your best friend. Fold them however you like and wear them with your favorite ankle booties. Taller Girls Being on the other side of the spectrum, tall girls usually experience the opposite problems. Follow our advice to flatter your [...]

In this article you will learn all the key wash types for jeans and, most importantly how and when to wear them. The dress code may be complicated and subjective, but we are here to help you avoid obvious fashion mistakes. 1. Raw Denim Judging form its name, raw denim is denim that hasn’t been washed or dyed at all, leaving the cloth in its original state. Such jeans are usually not really soft but are enduring and warm. We love darker jeans because they can contribute to a sophisticated and tasteful look. Add a bit of color to such monochromatic and dark foundation to liven up the outfit and set the accents. In general, raw denim is great for anything from blouses which will play with juxtaposition of different fabrics to soft and cozy knitwear. 2.

9 Tops To Wear With Skinny Jeans

We are used to think that skinny jeans are a casual option to run everyday errands, and you need a dress or at least a skirt to look dressed up. It’s so far way from truth that it hurts. While denim is generally not considered to be appropriate for formal events, it’s still a wonderful base for really dressed up and festive looks if you choose the right top to wear it with. Here’s a quick list of different top combinations that you can wear with your favorite skinny jeans. Try to choose white and black skinnies more often to look even more polished and tasteful. 1. Organza long sleeved blouse Whenever you feel like you have no ideas to create cute new look, always go with sheer organza blouses. They will be your effortless statement look because the transparent fabric looks mysterious and alluring. To keep it tasteful, wear a tiny tank top to feel more confident in a see-through blouse. Experiment with straps, bows and statement sleeves to look even more romantic and airy. 2. Denim jacket You can never be wrong with a denim-on-denim look. The trend reappeared a few years ago and is still relevant. You can wear a regular denim jacket with a graphic tee or choose a creative denim jacket and wear it with tight belt on the waist for a sharper silhouette. 3. Silk or satin blouse and heels A shortcut to create a smart casual look is to choose an expensive looking fabric for your top. Silk or satin works every time even with the most casual designs. So choose a blouse or a tank top made of some noble material, wrap tops look especially good. Don’t forget to wear high heels to complete the look. 4. Statement sleeves It doesn’t hint at any specific type of garment, because statement sleeves can make a focus piece out of any clothes. Some honorable mentions are trench coats, soft and cozy knitwear and blouses. Embrace the cuteness with romantic and tender creative sleeves to create a special outfit for a date or a night out. 5. Classy trench coat An obvious mention because everyone recommends trench coats and there is no example of it looking bad. We, however, encourage you to go out of the traditional beige trench coat and experiment with colors. Choose white, red or even bright purple, because it can become [...]

Underwear To Wear Under Your Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are a perfect foundation for a sexy look. They always look flattering on any body type if you choose them in right size and fit. However, there is one thing that can spoil the overall impression: a showing underwear. There are two opposites of bad underwear choices. Too tight underwear will create a four-butt situation, especially if it’s a granny panties and not at least Brazilian panties. On the other hand, even the smallest thongs can look horrible if you choose a high rise pair. So let’s out down the three pillars of a wise underwear choice. 1. Seamless. You can never go wrong with seamless underwear. Thongs or G-Strings are not recommended to be worn to often because it can cause infection or general irritation. But you can wear seamless panties in any fit and shape because it will remain invisible under any outfit. 2. Low rise. There is a common belief that high waisted panties should be the most comfortable, but it’s simply doesn’t make sense. The extra fabric rolls down and folds making the whole experience uncomfortable for you, especially under very tight skinnies. Choose low rise panties because it’s the size of underwear you need to keep panties hidden under clothes. 3. Comfort. Always think about your own preferences and, of course, prefer natural fabrics. Lace and nylon can look hot and daring, but wearing it on a daily basis can affect your skin state. Wear regularly panties made of cotton because they are the best option for the health of your skin. And now let’s think about realistic choices of underwear that you can wear under your favorite skinny jeans: 1. Cotton Thongs We love sexy thongs that can create a spark and set the mood for the evening, but don’t compromise your comfort. If you have to wear thongs, which can be not beneficial for your health, at least choose breathing fabrics like cotton. Cotton panties can also come in fun palettes and with cute patterns. 2. G-String Panties If you are trying to really impress someone special, G-string panties is the ultimate sign of it. This type of underwear can be extremely teasing and sexy, so why not choose beautiful lingerie and boost your confidence? G-string panties are exact the size you need to look good in skinny jeans. You won’t be able to see seams as well as see panties [...]

Skinny jeans have become an ultimate go-to solution for everyday looks. The eye-catching skinnies went from being a super trend among rock stars and rebellious subcultures to a default jeans option for most men. However, since it is so associated with the fashion of youth and rebels, an obvious question would be: am I too old to buy skinny jeans?

The only thing you need to understand how to style it with grace and taste and maybe some extra style ideas. Looks inspirations for all ages The main argument for men wearing skinny jeans at all ages are the incredible male models who make us believe age is only a number. So if you can model and be at magazine covers after 50 or 60, pulling off a pair of skinny jeans is just a tactics question. We’ve tried to find some similarities among all the good examples and understood some simple and, unfortunately, popular mistakes. Here are 3 rules of how adult men can look great in skinny jeans. Rule 1: Be honest with fit and proportion Skinny jeans come in two fits: standard and spray-on. The difference between is obvious. Standard skinnies are usually made of cotton, they are narrowing to the bottom of the leg, however, they leave enough space for comfort of movement.

How to wear men’s skinny jeans: Style ideas

There were days when skinny jeans were cutting-edge and trendy. It was long time ago, but instead of falling out of fashion skinny jeans just remained as a never ending classic. However, don’t let it fool you. The fact that skinnies are considered a default setting for most of us does not mean that we should give up on styling skinny jeans outfits. There are so many ideas for each season out there how a man can style his skinny jeans. But first let’s decide what are your perfect skinny jeans Proportions and fit Skinny jeans for men come in two core types, standard and spray-on skinnies. Standard skinny jeans mean that your pants are tailored to be tapering. They are narrowing to the bottom of the leg openings. They are usually made fully out of cotton. Spray-on skinny jeans mean that the denim has some stretching material in it which make jeans even more snugly and tapering. The leg openings are usually even smaller. If in terms of comfort you are okay with both types, consider your body proportions. For example, if a guy has bigger torso with relatively slimmer legs, spray-on jeans would emphasize the imbalance and make upper part even heavier. More relaxed cut could help with the silhouette. Similar problem is with extra slim guys. Spray-on jeans could make them appear even more lanky and awkward, so standard jeans are preferred. Plus size guys shouldn’t also choose extra slim skinnies because in some cases it makes your silhouette more feminine. So think of your desired silhouette and choose jeans that balance your figure. Style ideas Once you’ve decided what fit of jeans suits you most, it’s time to create outfits fashion-wise. Most men still live in the days when clothing was purely functional. Now we think of male fashion as a means of self-expression, so your outfit says about you more than you’d expect. We’ve combined a list of tips and mistakes wearing skinny jeans and send a message.

How to wear skinny jeans for guys: Tips and popular mistakes

For centuries there was a stigma that fashion and design is something aimed at women. The men’s clothing sections were mostly functional and pragmatic: suit for office, casual attire for leisure. Recently we’ve seen the tendency among men to become more fashion aware. In the past decade we’ve been sculpting the modern understanding of male fashion. Skinny jeans are one of the trends that men are welcoming in their lives. Skinny jeans for men can accentuate their figure, develop their fashion sense and are plainly comfortable. Today we will go through some main points of how to find your perfect pair, how to create fresh outfits and what are the popular mistakes among guys. Know your fit Whenever you go to a store, you’ll probably notice that skinny jeans come in two main fits, standard and spray-on/super skinny. The first type of jeans sits casually on your legs and hips, however, they are a little bit more tapering then your straight leg jeans.

Proportions When you are ready to try on skinny jeans, think of the proportions of your body. If you have a balanced-shapes body, you are free to experiment with what you like. However, if you have larger torso and shoulders with relatively small legs, skinny jeans could emphasize the contrast. If you have very long and slim legs, spray-on jeans would also make you look lanky. If you have wide hips, spray-on jeans may make your figure appear feminine. So think of the desired proportions and silhouette to choose the right fit.  It is a highly subjective topic but there are some similarities among men, so consider them before rushing into buying the first fitting skinnies. Shades of wash We are used to jeans in all shapes and sizes, but they are not stylistically the same. Light blue washed out jeans are very casual. They will look better with sneakers or casual [...]

DEFAULT DENIM: THE HISTORY OF SKINNY JEANS

Skinny jeans became a default garment for our everyday looks, but their history is longer than you’d expect. Today we will dig into the history of skinny jeans fashion and learn about the modern must-know skinny jeans designs. The evolution of skinny jeans A modern understanding of a term ‘skinny jeans’ means a pair of pants tailored to have slim legs and small leg openings. The jeans became popular alongside the punk culture of the 1980s, however, the design idea stems from the times of the French Revolution. Despite the popular belief, the design of skinny jeans was not created by Levi Strauss. The ancestors of skinnies were the 17th century pantaloons, a type of slim-fit pants with a high waist. They were popularized by the French court and later introduced to the rest of the Europe. To fit perfectly, pantaloons had to be tailored. That’s why they were the luxury accessible only to the rich and were synonymous with luxury. During the industrial revolution of the 18th century, tailoring was heavily replaced by mass production. It affected the fashion in favor of loose-cut pants that were comfortable for heavy factory work, and skinny jeans temporarily grew out of fashion. Introducing skinny jeans At this exact time in the US, the German immigrant Loeb Strauss introduces his jeans empire. In 1853 he moved his business from New York to San Francisco. There, one day a customer asked him for extremely enduring pair of denim pants, and Loeb, or, as we know him, Levi Strauss, used copper rivets to secure the seams. This decision was the foundation for his future empire. Read more: Vogue encyclopaedia: The history of denim jeans Levi’s jeans grew popular during the world wars. Soldiers loved his denim products because the strong material was enduring, and soon the civilians started to wear them, too. Those jeans were mainly loose cut and perfect from the military and cowboys. In the 1950s the skinny jeans reappeared again. You could see the best Hollywood actors like Marilyn Monroe or James Dean or rock legends, like Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones wear the ‘drainpipes’ on and off screen. The polished the image of skinny jeans from the cowboy-ish hard-working style and made them look glam and desired. This lasted about a decade until the hippie fashion introduced bell bottom pants, and the skinnies went out of fashion once again. The [...]
