Jeans shopping

Suddenly, I got the urge to buy a pair of jeans of good quality and reputable brand. Hmmm... Still thinking...

Found some interesting tips on jeans-wearing "ethics":

Hiding tummy
- choose medium to dark colored jeans; dark shades of blue, black and brown are best
- choose medium to high rise jeans that do not reach any higher than the belly button
- choose jeans that are not too tight and do not grab too much at the waist

Slimmer hips & smaller butts
- choose flattering jeans that do not have front pockets
- choose darker colored jeans provide a "slimmer and trimmer" look
- also choose straight legged, skinny jeans, or boot cut jeans
- choose low-waisted jeans instead if your hips are wide
- choose flared legs on low-waisted jeans because flared bottoms help to offset wide hips. However, avoid flared legs if legs are short
- avoid jeans with pockets on the back that have a design or embroidery

Longer legs
- lengthen your legs and shorten your body with high-waisted jeans
- skinny jeans look especially good on skinnier legs
- try jeans that flair at the bottom, which can be worn with heels

Smaller thighs
- choose straight legged, skinny jeans, or wide legs
- avoid jeans that flares at the bottom as they will put much more emphasis of the thighs

Generally, stay safe with boot-cut jeans, which look great on every body type. The slight flare on the bottom of the boot cut makes thighs look thinner and evens out wide hips or a large butt. Go with straight cut legs only if your body is naturally well proportioned. Straight cut jeans do not conceal any flaws.
