Jeans, a guide

I have to admit, I wear a lot of Lululemon. Like, a lot of Lulu, an aggressive amount. An amount that slightly concerns my father and many people around me. I don’t always wear ‘real pants’, but when I do, I have rules. I have so many rules about so many things that to normal people seem useless, but I have rules when it comes to jeans. Specific rules.

  1. No Skinny Jeans- I have a thing when it comes to skinny jeans. The thing is that I don’t like them, at all, and that I don’t understand why they are so popular. Literally, nobody looks good in skinny jeans. Stop wearing them, Please.
  2. Dark wash only from October to March- I don’t fully understand how this became a rule of mine, but I’ve realized that I’ve never work light wash jeans in the winter months. I wear dark wash jeans year round, but they’re all you’ll see when the nights get longer. They’re flattering, people, just wear them.
  3. Rips in Boyfriends Only-Ripped jeans are one of those polarizing things that most people really don’t like, or really really like, but I’ve found that the only way to wear them is to have them in boyfriend jeans. In flares or bootcuts they look odd, they looked fine in skinnies, but remember that skinnies are terrible. In boyfriend jeans, it adds to the whole idea of them being pre-worn and adds an extra edge.
  4. Ratty jeans are jeans that need to be thrown out- Boyfriend jeans are one thing, but ratty jeans are a different thing altogether. If your jeans look ratty, then it is time to throw them out and purchase a new pair. If you can’t remember when you bought your jeans and they look bad, throw them out. Or donate them! Donate as much of your clothes as you can.
  5. Don’t buy cheap jeans- Clothing can be expensive, but there isn’t a reason that you can’t invest in your appearance if you want your clothing to last. Cheap clothing acts how it’s supposed to, and if you buy something like jeans, which you’re likely to wear at least twice a week, you want them to last a couple of years. Spend the money now, instead of continuously spending it later.
  6. Try on every pair of jeans before buying them- I’ve been guilty of this before, and I know it’s tempting to just buy everything online, but try on your jeans. Jeans are made based off a model and what that model looks like that particular year. Usually, they use a size 2 or 4, and then change the measurements as necessary for larger sizes. Depending on how that model is carrying her weight that year, the way that your jeans fit will change. Try them on, and you’ll never know if something changes.
