A Women’s Guide to Buying Designer Jeans

Every woman should own a fabulous pair of designer jeans. Not just any pair. The perfect pair. The ones that make you look and feel amazing while exuding your personal style. But, many women find themselves too intimidated by steep prices and the plethora of choices and cuts to even attempt to buy a pair. Even a single bad experience with one designer’s fit can make going back for seconds seem unthinkable. The investment may also seem like too much, especially if you’re on a budget. Here is a quick guide to finding your ultimate designer jeans without all the aggravation.

First, you should decide on and stick to your budget. Although the most popular designer jeans generally fall into the $100 and up range, there is still likely one that will fit your particular resources if this seems like too much. Remember, we are talking about designer jeans here. Brands like True Religion, Seven, and Rock Revival to name a few. You can spend upwards of $300 on just one pair of certain exclusive brand names. It’s not simply the brand that you’re going to be buying either. True designer jeans are made with the best denim, use custom hardware, have unique stitching, are distressed by hand, and sometimes even hand sewn.

Once you have decided on your budget, think about what specific cut is most flattering for your body type. Today’s designer denim industry generally refers to their cuts as boot, skinny, straight, flare, wide, cropped and boyfriend. These all refer to the type of leg the jean will have. You will also find reference to low-rise, mid-rise and high-waist which describes the rise of the jean (the length from crotch to the top of the pant). The simplest way to familiarize yourself with the look of each of these cuts is to search the internet. You will be able to find detailed photos and descriptions of each and every one. This will also be a great help in acquainting yourself with some of the top name brands as well as their pricing.

Now, it’s time to shop! If you are lucky enough to have a boutique or other specialty store that carries designer denim brands in your area, then head on out and try some on. You should already have a list of the cuts and brands that strike your fancy from your earlier search on the Web. Nothing beats trying on the different styles in person to find the perfect fit. But, sometimes nothing beats the pricing you will find if you order online. So ultimately, if you can go out and try some jeans and find the ones you love, go back to your computer and search for the best price. Many boutique type sites and bigger luxury retailers will have special discounts and sales. You may even find free shipping.

Designer Jeans – Your Ultimate Fashion Statement

Let me start with a question…

How many people have you come across who do not have a pair of jeans in their wardrobe?

Few? Or should I say they hardly exist? And how many do you know who have 10+ pairs of jeans in their wardrobe? That is because the right jeans, long or short, wide leg or skinny, can go with anything. Whether dressed casual with a tank top and flip flops, or dressed up with high heels and a pretty top, jeans can go from day to night, effortlessly.

Although jeans started out as a normal rough and tough wear for a day of hard work, they no more remain so. Now they are an embodiment of the same fashion statement that so many try to follow, what with so many diverse patterns and styles existing under so simple a category of jeans.

There are so many varied styles and patterns of jeans available that denim suits anyone. Be it of narrow frames and petite statures or a person on the curvier side. Fitted with designer jeans of the appropriate style for your personality, you could hit the right chord and become a strong fashion statement, be with a stylish blazer or a tank top.

So what sets designer denim apart from other brands?

From designer labels such as 7 for All Mankind, Rock & Republic, Citizens of Humanity, J Brand, Diesel, Antik Denim, True Religion, Frankie B, Taverniti, Monarchy and Pure Venom you can find the right look from embellished stitching to rhinestone coated. Many of the today’s top brands use Italian or Japanese fabrics, giving them that super soft, sleek and sexy feel. Are they not superior in quality?

Jeans are not just about fashion; they are also about comfort. Haven’t they won the role as the best fabric?

Even men love designer denim. There is nothing sexier than a pair of Diesel jeans with a white t-shirt, for men or women! The look that a proper fitting and appropriately styled pair of jeans gives can match up to any other piece of clothing and gives an equal amount of elegance and spice to your look.
