You saw the model sitting pretty and looking stunning in what the company claimed as the best fit ever launched by them. But when you tried the pair, your disappointment knew no bound. This is a story common to most Indian women who go to buy their pair of jeans. Compared to men, choosing the right fit that enhances our figure is a daunting task. More so for us Indian girls who come in different shapes and sizes. The look varies from cut to cut and brand to brand but here are few pointers on what to go for when choosing your perfect pair.
Go for straight or boot-cut leg
Most Indian women are blessed with a full figure that is hard to camouflage easily. To make your thighs and derriere look slimmer than they actually are, opt for a straight fit or a boot cut leg. Both give you a leaner silhouette. Avoid tapered legs as they tend to make your hips look larger. You can even opt for jeans with front crease like in formal trousers since they look stunning on women with regular or even large dimensions.
Get big pockets
Choose jeans with larger pockets at the back; those that go from the rise of your jeans to the edge. This deflects the attention from your rear making it look slimmer.
Stick to Dark Wash
Dark blue, black or classic blue jeans can see you through trend after trend while remaining hot every season. It looks always polished and can be worn for any occasion. They are obviously more flattering than washed out or bleached version.
In the last two years the trend has been to wear ultra low rise, which barely reaches your hipbones. But that look is on its way out. What you should look for is low waist that buttons up an inch below your navel. It flatters woman of all shapes and ages. Ditch your high-waisted denims as they can make you look pear shaped.
Stretch for Comfort
If you like wearing your pair for longer hours, it would make sense to get a pair with a touch of Lycra for comfort fit. They serve dual purpose of offering you better mobility and flattering your shape as they hug your curves in the right places.
