How do you pick just one pair of jeans?
Cowboys are not generally known for their trend-setting abilities. Yet it was this group of rough and ready ranchers, who first pioneered what has become the ultimate fashion accessory – the humble pair of jeans. Jeans are a wardrobe staple for followers of fashion around the globe. With each of us owning numerous pairs, there are probably several times more pairs of jeans than there are people, across the world. Who knew that this tough wearing fabric would go on to be the most popular item of clothing in history?
A pair for all seasons
Jeans offer many advantages. First, from flares, straight, bootcut, skinny, carrot and bell bottoms, there is a pair to suit every size and shape. Secondly, they are so versatile they can easily be dressed up or down. If you’re in a rush and need to get the kids off to school, sling on a pair of jeans and a T-shirt and you’ve mastered the casual look. Team them with a black blazer and shirt, and you can look glamorous and elegant. One pair of jeans, two very different looks. Find the right pair of jeans and they can flatter you, no matter what else you’re wearing with them.
Because jeans are so universal, they are made and sold everywhere. It’s almost impossible to find a clothes shop that doesn’t have a jeans range. But don’t be tempted to buy jeans just because they’re cheap. Quality jeans look great but poorly-made versions often don’t flatter your figure. If they won’t see you through a couple of years, you’ll end up spending more money replacing them.
What’s in a name?
There are certain brands of jeans that you can trust – brands that keep up with the cutting edge of denim and make stylish, contemporary pieces at reasonable prices. For example, Voi Jeans make really flattering jeans for all shapes and sizes. With their characteristic back pocket detail, they are also easily identifiable. Best of all, they make jeans for both men and women, so both you and your partner can look great in a flattering pair. But with so many to choose from, why pick just one pair each?
