The #1 Thing to Remember When Shopping for Denim Jeans

Denim jeans: they’re an essential for Fall/Winter, but for some reason, they are a pain to shop for. When it comes to jean shopping, your technique might be to buy a bunch of cheap pairs and see what ‘fits’. But, let’s be honest: none of them truly ever ‘fit’. I’ve had enough of ill-fitting denim, haven’t you?

So, when it comes to shopping for denim jeans, here’s my golden rule: don’t cheap out!

You deserve to have all your jeans fit you really well! Why? Because they are a staple piece and something you more than likely wear at least a few times a week, if not more. Plus, just having a few amazing pairs will last you years and years.

My go-to are my Fiorucci high waisted jeans. High waisted jeans are flattering on just about every body type. I love a good bootcut jean, or even a patched up statement pair

My Favorite High Waisted Jeans

When it comes to styling denim jeans, whether they are light, medium, or dark wash, pair them with anything and everything. I wore my light wash flare jeans with heeled boots because of the longer pant leg. It also helps to make you appear taller!

It’s amazing how high waisted jeans can also versatile enough for a business-casual look. I paired black high waisted jeans with a patterned floral blouse for a morning meeting. Because jeans can be worn in almost any capacity, this is even more reason to invest in a pair that will last. 

My Favorite High Waisted Jeans

These skinny high waisted jeans are slimming and perfect for Fall. I love the raw hem detail. Plus, they are stretchy, making them easy to keep and fit into after years and years.

Detailed jeans are a great way to make a statement. I love how Fiorucci jeans fit, too. Wear these with a black sweater and booties for a edgy-chic Fall look!

If there is one garment you should really spend on, it’s a pair of denim jeans. Only buying a few amazing pairs, versus tons of cheap pairs, is a lot better for the environment too. Plus, it’s easier on your wallet in the long run! I hope this helped you find the perfect pair!

    Quality over quantity! I totally agree. A good pair of jeans will last multiple seasons vs buying cheaper ones that’ll barely make it through one winter.

    As a somewhat bigger body type I love how well high-wasited jeans fit every type of body. I wear jeans almost everyday so picking high quality is the best investment.

    I love your note about how you can easily dress up black high waisted jeans! I used to have high waisted black jeans, but unfortunately they became a little too old to wear. I’m definitely going to buy a new pair now, especially since I need to start going to more professional events!
