No matter your shape or size, chances are you have a favorite pair of jeans in your wardrobe that you could never imagine parting with. If you do not own a pair of jeans – what are you waiting for? Go get a pair NOW!

The all-American favorite piece of clothing was first designed as work wear for laborers, but quickly found popularity as Americans started wearing them as a form of rebellion in the 1950’s. Needless to say, jeans have never gone out of fashion and it is likely they never will. Here is what to look for when shopping for jeans.

Comfort and Style

Jeans are so versatile that there are many different styles, cuts and colors available to suit anyone’s needs, shape or comfort level. Jeans can be casual or dressed up, short or full-length, high-waisted, flared or the most popular style lately – skinny.

Skinny jeans for women have become a staple in their wardrobe and you will be hard pressed to find a modern woman who does not own a pair. Most pairs of skinny jeans are made from comfortable stretch denim, which makes them so popular.

Wearing an oversized shirt or jersey over your skinny jeans with sandals or sneakers is the most common and comfortable look you can achieve if you are looking to invest in a pair. Team up your jeans with a pair of heels, a sheer blouse and some jewelry for a night out, and if you need a smarter look, wear a blazer with your skinny jeans and heels.

Winter rocks with jeans! Pair your favorite boots with comfortable jeans, a jersey, or a jacket for added warmth. Jeans and boots are most iconic in winter, and you cannot go wrong by investing in a good pair of jeans and an equally good pair of boots.

The Travel Pants

When traveling, chances are that you are in a pair of denim jeans. Right? If you are going on a trip, the best space saving tip is to pack two different kinds of jeans and team them up with different tops, blouses, jackets or t-shirts. Dress them down with sandals or pumps, dress them up with heels and keep it casual with sneakers.

The versatility a good pair of jeans offers you is something you cannot live without. The best part about jeans is that they do not need regular washing or even ironing, which is an added bonus when traveling.

Color matching is also a non-issue, as any color or pattern under the sun can be worn with a pair of jeans.

Invest in a Good Pair

If you wear jeans often, it would be a good idea to invest in a really good pair or two that will wear longer and stay in shape. Researching your body type and which pair of jeans would suit you best is another great wardrobe shopping basic

Jeans are made to last, and with so many styles to choose from, you can be rest assured there is a pair of jeans with your name on it.
