Oh! Look at us! We’re here again! Nice to see you! Back at it again with another blog post! Ayyyyyyy!
Before we start I just wanna say a massive thank you to everyone that’s been supporting me so far either by reading my posts, commenting or sharing it! Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have you all 💞
So this week, we’re gonna be very transparent with one another cos I KNOW I can’t be the only one that has a love-hate relationship with jeans. As much as I love wearing jeans, shopping for them is really an extreme sport lmao. This is why, when I finally find a perfect pair, I literally only wear that pair until I find one that’s better, don’t worry guys, I wash them 😂 Don’t judge me, I know you do the same thing Lmaoo. So clearly, I’m still a learner when it comes to this jeans game, but I can share with you some of the things I’ve learnt over the years. Let’s get it!💃🏽
Fit and comfort
For my girls that are more endowed in the derriere section, I can’t relate, but I do know that finding the perfect jeans to fit your waist as well as your hips, bum and thighs can be quite the task. Well say bye bye to the struggle cos I come bearing good news. One word! STRETCH!! The more stretchy the jeans, the better the fit! And how do you know if a pair of jeans have a good enough stretch? Check on the fabric details tag, and look out for the words elastane, lycra or spandex. These materials add elasticity to the jeans, allowing it to hold everything in place. The higher the percentage of these materials, the more the stretch. I would say, that at least 5% is a good enough stretch. And if you’re like me, and like the thicker denim feel, then 1% is a good amount. Another reason why it’s ideal to get jeans that fit just right, is the fact that you can avoid wearing belts! Belts tend to draw attention to themselves, and take attention away from the actual jeans and the figure it hugs. Fashion Nova and Topshop are known for their stretchy jeans. You should check them out! I haven’t personally shopped on Fashion Nova but I’ve heard great reviews.
High rise, low rise or mid rise?
The type of rise a pair of jeans has can do a lot for the fit. If you have a curvier body, low rise jeans are probably not the best, as you might constantly be finding yourself pulling them up. On the other hand, high rise jeans cinch in your waist and also elongate your legs, making them also perfect for petite girls, like me, that want more height. Low rise jeans aren’t always bad, they’re great for accentuating/creating the illusion of hips as they sit right on your hips.
The type of wash is very essential depending on what look you’re going for. Lighter wash jeans tends to add more curves while darker wash jeans are more slimming. You can also find that lighter wash jeans are great for casual looks while darker wash jeans are great for more formal or business casual looks. Also, a slight lighter fade over the bum and thighs, contrasted by a surrounding darker wash, attracts more attention to those areas, making you look thicker. If you don’t want attention drawn to those areas, then it’ll be ideal to stay away from those types of jeans.
Now pockets can either make or break a nice pair of jeans. I’m really not a fan of fake pockets on jeans, it puts me off getting the jeans all together. The size of the back pockets should be nicely proportioned to your butt size. Pockets too small can make your butt look too big while pockets too big can make your butt look too flat. You just have to be really careful with pockets, but I would never suggest getting jeans that have no pockets. I would say that they’re an essential ‘asset’ to a good pair of jeans. Get it? Asset 😂😂
The yoke is located below the waistband and has the ability to create the illusion of wider hips and enhance your butt. There are various types of yokes. The most flattering is a v shaped yoke found on most jeans. A heart shaped yoke is great for a small bottom while no yoke is great for women with a bigger bottom that want less attention drawn to it. For more information on back yokes check out this link.
My go to shops when it comes to a good pair of jeans are Topshop, New look and PrettyLittleThing.
So there you have it, that’s all my tips on finding the perfect jeans for your body type! Let me know which one was your favourite and if you have any others, be sure to share them in the comments below.
Now, let’s talk about this look for a second! Can we just take this in!! I call this look ‘stripes and kitten heel.’ Yes! you heard right, kitten heels. Your girl bought her first pair of kitten heels and I must admit, I actually like them! I like them so much, I’ve worn them twice! Lmaoo but on a serious note, I’m really trying to broaden my horizon and try something new and I think you should too. The crushed velvet material and the bow on the kitten heels really adds something special to this look that I doubt any other type of heel could possibly add.
Shirt – Zara, the actual one is sold out but here’s an alternative
Jeans – PrettyLittleThing
Kitten heels – ASOS

Great one again Ore, high rise jeans is good for people with big belly. It’s comfortable and helps to flattened it out at least for that time period and for a smart look. Thanks for the tips.
