The perfect jeans

My top advice before buying your next pair of jeans, all available in the Athlone Town Center.

Denim advice for Women with Short Legs

  • The Don’ts:
    • DON’T wear baggy jeans, these will swamp your shape and add weight
    • DON’T wear cropped legged jeans, particularly of you have thicker calves and ankles as these will draw attention to that area
    • DON’T wear jeans that turn up at the cuff, these will cut you off and make your legs look even shorter
  • The Do’s:
    • DO chose slim or skinny leg styles with a mid rise waistline
    • DO wear with heels to create an illusion of length
    • DO wear with shorter, hip length jackets as oppose to longer coats to instantly elongate your silhouette
    • DO try out these styles:

Denim Advice to Create Curves

  • The Don’ts
    • DON’T assume you are the same size in every store. You may be able to go down a size and get instant curves with a better fitting pair of jeans
    • DON’T be afraid of boyfriend jeans.  A well fitting pair of boyfriend jeans with turn ups and paired with heels, is an modern and edgy style choice and wear with a more fitted top to enhance your curves
  • The Do’s
    • DO go for straight or skinnies legs jeans in lighter wash to really shope off your shape. White denim would also be an stylish option
    • DO look for faded denim – this style can actually help to create the illusion of curves even if you don’t have any naturally
