Shopping for a new pair of jeans is no easy task. It can be as daunting as attending your yearly check-up with your dentist. From someone like me who is a pro at online shopping, I tend to always have a difficult time selecting the right size, and find myself placing three options in my cart with anticipation that if I’m lucky, one will stay with me. So today I thought I’d share the ultimate guide to buying jeans online: my fit, my way.
Know your measurments, hips and waist. Both of these numbers are important to know ahead of time, and having them handy when you’re shopping online will save you a lot of time and energy. Remember, your waist is the most narrow point of your stomach, and your hips are the widest part of your torso.
Use the available size chart, every brand is different. Each designer has a specific “model” in mind when creating their products, thus sizing can always be different. Knowing your measurments will allow you to reference the size chart for the best fit.
Understand the different styles and color options. Jeans can come in a variety of styles and washes, so understand what you’re looking for ahead of time. Lighter washes won’t change much over time, and any fade will be minimal, while you can expect darker washes to show the classic signs of wear very easily. Selecting the perfect style is personal preference, so keep in mind what look you’re going for.
When in doubt, buy multiple. Finding that “perfect fit” as I mentioned above, is no easy task. If you’re looking for a pair that will hug you in all the right places, try on multiple pairs! The secret to shopping online involves taking full advantage of free shipping, and free return retailers!
