There are just too many styles to choose from. By keeping some of these tips in mind you can find that perfect pair of jeans. Some useful hints include: · Before deciding on which pair of jeans to wear, it’s imperative to choose the type of shoes you’ll be sporting. This is because the heel normally will determine how the jean will fall or lay to the ground. · Also remember that most jeans are not pre-shrunk when you purchase them. So make sure you allow for a bit of shrinkage. · Low-rise jeans sit low on the waist and provide the perfect opportunity to show off those abs! · Boot-cut jeans are loose through the leg and wide at the leg opening. · Flare leg jeans are fun and funky which feature a wide, flared opening at the leg. · Stonewashed jeans are light and have a more broken-in appearance. · Distressed jeans have holes, shredding or crinkles to give it that highly worn appearance. · Dark jeans are the ideal jeans for a night out. · Not all jeans fit all body types. So keep in mind your body type and jean style when selecting jeans. · Full-figured body types should choose traditional five-pocket style jeans that aren’t too snug.

And always select jeans in a darker shade. · Slimmer body types look great in jeans with a slight flare at the leg opening. Low-rise and pocket jeans are also good choices. · Athletic types have narrow hips and athletic legs.

Fall Fashion Trend – Take Your Jacket To The Shrink

Fall and winter may have brought out long peacoats and trenches before, but not this year. One of the most sought-after pieces for the upcoming season will be the shrunken jacket, in a variety of styles. The difference between these new, tinier versions of your traditional autumn and winter favorites is their length; cuts are the same as traditional coats, but they hit slightly above the waist and often tie or button under the chest. The beauty of these new pieces is that they provide coverage in colder months without sacrificing sexiness or femininity. The perfect jacket is one of the most important elements of your wardrobe, and with so many shapes and fabrics available this fall, it would be a crime to choose just one. The ever-present denim jacket is back with a new vengeance. Instead of the washes of last season or bulkiness of years before, this season’s denim jacket is soft, body-conscious and far more feminine than the traditional denim jacket. Corduroy and leather are back again, cropped and ready to be worn over anything from your favorite dress to distressed jeans. A new take on an old favorite is safe, but take advantage on the amazing new fabrics and styles the end of the year has to offer. Brocade is big this season and some of the most sought-after new jackets are made of the rich, detailed design. Many of these brocaded, boudoir-style jackets are trimmed in rich velvet or lace piping and can be paired with tweed trousers of you favorite jeans. Many of these new jackets are cut at the hip but some are reaching even higher—cropped just below the chest (H & M).

Even faux fur and metallic finishes are adorning the newest trend (Allen B. by Allen Schwartz). Getting short isn’t the only new addition to a cold weather favorite. Sleeves are getting revamped this season, retro-style. Traditional coat fabrics like houndstooth are being used in a new way. Bell sleeves (think bellbottom sleeves, cut below the elbow) mix cropped length with a traditional fabric and throwback to 70s style (Banana Republic). You’ll also see a mini version of the military jacket this season; a cropped, girlie take on the long, heavy style, adorned with brass buttons and zippers (Bebe). The beauty of these new jackets is the versatility they bring to your own style: mix them with denim, dresses, skirts and trousers. Since there isn’t one specific style or fabric that will reign this fall, all styles and sizes can take advantage of a new take on an old...
