Denim tips from an insider

There is no doubt that we love denim but, as there are so many options, we don’t always love the search for a pair that hugs you in all the right places. Fortunately, I've acquired a fair amount of knowledge, having worked for a denim buying company, and I'm happy to share a few tips I picked up while working in the industry to help you find the perfect pair of jeans.

Try it on

If you find a pair you love and which fit well, and then you spot the same one in a different colour, be sure to try both of them on because different denim bases are used for different colours, which means they could feel and fit slightly differently.

Price points

You don’t have to spend a small fortune to get a pair of good quality. There are reasonably priced options that will be just as great as a pair that will cost an arm and a leg. If you want to spend, then do so on the classic fits and colours and go budget-friendly for fashion denim.

Just feel it

Not all denim is the same, so feel the fabric and stretch because you don’t have to be an expert to know if you're going to enjoy the texture or not. You know what feels comfortable so always go with that.

Size doesn’t matter

Don’t be scared of the size on the label. Every retailers has a different spec, so it doesn’t mean if you have to size up or down that you have lost or gained weight.
