First, think about your body shape. ItâEUR(TM)s something that a lot of fashion-conscious women ponder all the time, but men donâEUR(TM)t necessarily think about as much. Are you tall and lean or short and stocky? Perhaps youâEUR(TM)re of average height and build and youâEUR(TM)re looking for something that will give you a more distinctive silhouette. Or maybe youâEUR(TM)re of an athletic physique and find it difficult to get your muscular thighs into an average pair of jeans. Whatever your body shape, thereâEUR(TM)s a pair of jeans out there for you âEUR" you just have to find them.
Next, think about where youâEUR(TM)ll be wearing your jeans. If you work in a casual office, the likelihood is that you wear jeans nearly every day. If thatâEUR(TM)s the case, stay away from styles at which your boss might raise an eyelid. That includes huge flares, logo-emblazoned jeans and jeans that are ripped or distressed. On the other hand, if you only wear jeans at home or on weekends, let your creativity run free.
Then itâEUR(TM)s time for you to actually go into a shop and see whatâEUR(TM)s on offer. Athletic and stocky builds should go for relaxed fit jeans that gently shadow your body shape and are the ultimate in comfort. However, if youâEUR(TM)re thin or lean, relaxed fit jeans can look a little too baggy, which is something to bear in mind if youâEUR(TM)re planning to wear them to smart occasions. However, thin and lean body shapes will look great in skinny jeans, one of the biggest revelations in men's jeans this decade. Still, itâEUR(TM)s important not to wear jeans that are too tight as this can look undignified. So if skinny jeans show off a little too much for your liking, go for a tapered cut with a loose thigh.
Once youâEUR(TM)ve found your new pair of favourite jeans, be sure to preserve their lifespan by taking good care of them. The best way to preserve jeans is to not wash them too often. Most jeans can cope with several weeksâEUR(TM) worth of wear before needing to be washed. When you do wash them, turn them inside out so the colour doesnâEUR(TM)t fade and be sure to dry them naturally rather than in the tumble dryer.
