HOW TO WEAR SPRING’S MUST-HAVE NON-STRETCH DENIM
Don’t get us wrong – we’ll always have a spot in our closets for a great pair of stretchy jeans (brunch, for starters). But it’s time to get back to the basics: as in, 100-percent-cotton blues. Iconic, authentic, good-old-fashioned JEANS, crafted from rigid denim that is just waiting to be broken in to fit your body perfectly.
…and that breaking-in process? That is KEY. Non-stretch denim is an entirely different ballgame. Like most great things in life, it is truly about the journey… with the destination being an amazing rear view (obvs) AND a pair of jeans that fits like a glove and will last forever.
Lucky for you, we have an in with one of New York’s most in-demand stylists, and we’re sharing her tips for rocking spring’s most-talked-about jeans.
WEAR ‘EM ON YOUR WAIST
A high rise is CRUCIAL. It highlights your curves, lifts your butt and creates a naturally sexy and flatteringly feminine silhouette.
SIZE UP, IF NEEDED
Keep in mind that these are literally non-stretch. As in, denim that does not stretch.
The first time you try them on, they will likely feel pretty snug around your waistline – almost a little too tight, even. That’s a good thing, because once you break them in, they will loosen up to fit you just right. Choose a size that fits your true waist snugly, and the denim will do the rest, becoming a little bit softer and more forgiving with every single wear. Alternatively, if you prefer a looser, more relaxed fit and would rather skip the break-in process, simply size up and carry on!
MAKE THEM YOUR OWN
We love the timeless look of a skinny belt and tucked-in tee, but this is the perfect pair of jeans for experimenting with different silhouettes and layers to find your own unique style.
