Reasons why these jeans are bomb…first of all they are high waisted (and you all know how much I love those), secondly they are super slimming on my legs, but most importantly they are the most comfortable things in the world. The inner part of these pants (the black part) are stretchy. Comfortable and stylish? Who knew that stuff existed?!
I remember when these came into Crossroads (where I work – but you knew that right? Learn more about me here!) they looked so small. The first thought that came into my head was “Wow, I wish those came in my size.” What years of working in fashion has taught me is to try everything. You may be a size 10 in one brand but then a small in another. also the garment fits completely different on the body – sometime for the worse, this time is was completely for the best!
Shopping is a sport because you have to suffer through trying on millions of items and only a few working. It can be so disheartening, but the struggle does not last forever; so do not give up! Eventually you will find brands that make pieces that flatter your body. You will learn how to spot certain cuts that do not fit your body type well. My advice is to not settle. Buy pieces that make you look like a thousand bucks. Another option is to invest a little more and take your items to the tailor. It’ll surprise you how a tailor can make a regular H&M black blazer look like it’s a Dolce and Gabbana custom order!
