The Search for the Perfect Pair of Jeans
I'm told that there’s no better feeling that finding the perfect pair of jeans. Except that I don’t know what that feeling is like as I haven’t found them yet!
Despite the style tips (you can read some of them here) about fit and styles to suit your body shape, I can safely say that I am not enamoured about any pair of jeans I own.
I have a pair of black skinny jeans but feel that my thighs look big in them. Another pair of indigo skinnies feel good on but the seam twists inwards at the bottom. A River Island boot cut pair have been left untouched on a hanger since I bought them. Diesel jeans are my go-to ones now - they’re comfy but I am not convinced that the pale blue colour is flattering on me. I'm short so sometimes have trouble finding the right length of jean - and this changes depending on whether I'm wearing heels or flats.
And that's not to say that I haven't spent money on jeans over the years. DvB, 7 for all Mankind and Diesel sit alongside Awear and River Island in my wardrobe. And I am eyeing up a pair of Mihi jeans, the celebrity favourite.
But I am told that stylist Jules Fallon has a failsafe formula to finding the perfect pair of jeans for every woman. People have even called in to the radio to speak about how wonderful her jean style sessions are.
Jules can find a pair of jeans for women of any age and she also works within your budget – in fact it’s the first question she asks. So if she sees that a pair of Not Your Daughters Jeans (from Pamela Scott) suit you, she has a shop up her sleeve that do a similar style to fit your shape, at a lower price point.
