Jeans Guide: How to choose a perfect fit for your body type?

Jeans are a fashion staple in every woman’s closet, but the style of the jeans you wear can make or break your look. If you choose your jeans based on your body shape, you’ll be able to confidently put your best foot forward whenever you step out of the house.

All of us have different shapes, sizes and styles, so finding the right pair of jeans can be a task. Luckily there are tips and tricks for each of you for finding the perfect pair of jeans! All you need to do is follow a few of these steps and remember them when heading to the changing room of your latest denim department.

Hourglass Bodyshape

You ladies are a lot luckier with this body shape as you can get away with most things and look great. With a hip to bust ratio of 50/50 and a slim waist, it’s all about the styling and keeping your proportions balanced. Here are some great jeans to look for:

Skinny Jeans – These are the most flattering on hourglass shapes. Your chest and hips are in proportion with each other already so showing your legs off in skinnies only highlights that point. Bootcut jeans can actually overwhelm you and hide your frame.

Higher rises – High rises are recommended because the waistband will sit at the smallest part of your waist, this will also give the illusion of an even slimmer middle.

Medium size back pockets – Don’t go too big or too small with your back pocket sizing, it’s important to enhance your butt so choose wisely!

Skinny flare – If you want to do flared jeans, I would say choose a pair that are tight and skinny all the way to the knee and then give off a slight flare. This is much more flattering.

Flares – If you are a much more curvy hourglass that above and carry a lot of weight on the hips, a flared jean will really help balance that out.

Most often like the super model shape with extra height, long legs and a straighter hip area, you can find it hard to get jeans to fit in length and be flattering and feminine. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of choices for you. Look out for these:

Inseams – If you want to go for a smart look, long inseams are the way to go as they will make you sleek and clean. If you prefer something more fashionable and love the look of jeans with ankle boots, go for a cropped skinny and cuff them with your ankle boots. This will give more depth to your shape and lessen your height a little bit while looking chic.

Skinny Jeans – Skinnies are always your best friend as they show off your figure beautifully. Just be sure to pick the most flattering pair for your butt and thighs.

Skinny Flares – You can also get away with skinny flares as you have the height to pull it off. Don’t do baggy flares as they will overwhelm you, so make sure the flare starts below the knee and the fit above is tight.

Rises – If you want to show off your height, go for a high rise, but if you want to make your legs more proportional, a low rise will work wonders.

Boyfriend Jeans – Luckily, you can get away with boyfriend jeans and make them look amazing! Go for a slimmer fitting boyfriend and it will look great.

With more curves around the hip and butt and a smaller upper half, it can be harder to find jeans that balance out your proportions and are flattering rather than awkward. You look out for jeans with these fits:

Bootcut or wider flares – These will help balance out the hips and keep your legs in proportion with the extra fabric around the calves.

Long inseams – Having a longer length means you can wear heels under your flares and bootcut jeans. This will of course elongate your legs and make them look slimmer.

Higher rises – You should buy jeans with a higher rise as they are very balancing to your shape.

Larger pockets – It’s important to enhance your booty since you are blessed with it, so look for larger back pockets as small ones can make it look bigger.

Stretch denim – Always look for stretch denim as it will hug your body better, creating a more sleek silhouette. Plus, it’s not as restricting as rigid denim.

Boots – If you do want to go for a skinny jean,  you should tuck them into boots as it will help balance out the hips more and create a better shape.

Round Body Shape

For those of you who carry your issues around your tummy area and always struggle to find jeans that are flattering or give you that shape you are looking for, there’s definitely options for you too! Embrace your body shape and work with it rather than against it. These are some tips to look for:

Skinny Jeans – Skinny jeans can look really good when they are paired with a floaty, gypsy style top as this will hide your problem area but the skinnies will still be fitted, creating a balanced look.

Rises – If you are more curvy and you want to hide your stomach, you should opt for a high rise jean as this will hold everything in. If you are a more slimmer apple shape then lower rise jeans can give you a more curvy appearance.

Trouser Jeans – If you want to balance things out, you should go for a trouser style jean as the wider leg from hip to foot will help with proportions.

A Must Try Day Cream!

The importance of SPF hasn’t gone unnoticed. It’s present in all our day creams as well as sunscreens and we’ve even been strictly advised not to miss out on it every time we step out. Short term exposure to UV rays causes skin darkening and sunburn. Over the long term, such exposure can result in premature ageing and increase one’s risk of skin cancer.

That’s why we recommend you this Nivea Lotion below;

Nivea Moisturising Sun Lotion:

It’s a high protection lotion providing immediate protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays. It has SPF 50 and is perfect for the people who wants to go out and enjoy the sun.

  • It is absorbed quickly by the skin.

  • It gives you immediate protection, thus no need to wait in the sun for 20 minutes.

Pout beautifully, babes!

Love clicking selfies? Here are some incredibly easy how to’s for a beautiful pout:

Lip pencil – Use a lip pencil that matches the colour of your lips, rather than the lipstick, to outline your lips. Draw a V at the centre of your upper lip, if you want your cupids bow looking prominent. Shape the lips and corners of your mouth for greater definition.

Concealer – Apply some concealer for fuller looking lips as this helps them appear larger.

Lipstick – Apply a coat of your preferred lipstick, without going out of the lip-line. Remember that brighter colors are best for a beautiful pout!

Translucent powder – For a long lasting lipstick, blot your lips with a tissue and dab on translucent powder or even some regular powder. Finally, re-apply your lipstick.

Gloss – Apply a layer of lip gloss to add a moist sheen to your lips.

Happy Beautiful Lips!

Monsoon makeup tips

Monsoons provide a soothing effect to your skin after the harsh summer sun. During this season the skin tends to be naturally moisturised and sometimes this could be a bane as it leaves your skin feeling oily.

So here are a few makeup tips to get you through this monsoon season beautifully 🙂

Avoid foundation: Unless you like getting messed up. Instead replace foundation with face powder. This to an extent will help in keeping the look intact even if you get drenched.

Use powder in place of heavy base: However even while using face powder see to it that you use only as much as you need it. In other words use face powder to get rid of that greasy look and nothing more.

Blush: Use cream blushers instead of powder or any other type of blushes in the monsoon. The mantra is to use as less blush as you possibly can. Even if you get wet in rain remember to just dab it with a tissue and not rub it all over your face. Keep it subtle and beautiful.

Eyeshadow: The same goes with the eyeshadows as well. Use subtle colors like beige, brown, pink and so on. And yes when it comes to eye shadows use powdered eye shadows instead of creams. This will keep the eyeshadow from melting off on your face.

Mascara: Mascara should be a strict NO-NO during rainy season, until and unless it is very much necessary. Select water resistant mascaras that will at least stay for a while without getting smudged when wet.

Eyeliner and kajal: Use pencil liner over liquid eye liner in the monsoon. This will keep it from running all over your face when you get wet. 

Lip Color: Settle down with long lasting range of lipsticks during monsoon. Matte is the best choice. Avoid lip gloss as it will get sticky and smudge easily when you get wet. Use dark color lipsticks as it will make you look a shade lighter than your actual complexion and also stay longer.

Hair: Do not leave your hair open during monsoons. Tie it up in a neat bun and use hair accessories to accentuate your look. You may even want to learn different types of braiding just to look more fashionable and chic.

Happy Monsoons!!

Makeup mistakes to avoid now!

1. Wrong shade of foundation

Just choose two shades that come closest to your skin tone, apply each of them to your jawline, then look in a mirror preferably in daylight. Use your own judgment to see which one looks most natural.

We recommend Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte Plus Poreless Foundation. 

2. Applying Makeup to Dry Skin

Exfoliate your skin once a week because applying foundation onto dry skin will accentuate flakiness, and it will sit on the top of your face instead of blending in.

3. Wearing The Wrong Shade Of Blush

Blushes should complement your natural blush tone.If you are wearing a bolder lip, pair that to a subtle blush tone.

We recommend Maybelline Fit Me Blush. 

4. Not Cleaning Your Brushes

Never apply makeup with dirty brushes or unwashed sponges as it doesn’t help the makeup looking fresh. Wash your tools with a mild shampoo or instant brush cleaner and replace your sponges regularly.

5. Not Testing Makeup At All

You have to try on your makeup.You can’t trust what it looks like in the bottle as liquid products oxidize on the skin and in the air, changing the color and texture.”

 

6. Applying Too Much Powder

Over powdering throughout the day can make your face appear heavy and cakey. Keep it subtle.

We recommend Colorbar Perfect Match Compact.

7. Curling Your Lashes Last

Curlers work best usually on clean lashes so there’s no chance of ripping any out. Apply mascara on clean lashes and wait for it to dry.

We recommend Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.

2. MIDI SKIRTS.

Untitled design (1)This spring it seems like every possible fabric, cut, and skirt style out there looks better in midi than mini or maxi. A bit of flare or A-line to them will put a total retro spin on the look.

3. SLIT SKIRTS. 

Untitled design (4)The slit is the definition of sexy and effortless. Whether it’s a tiny slit on the side, in the middle of a skirt (like a subtle cut, on a pencil skirt for office), or a more uber-hot-feminine high slit on the side in a midi style skirt, it don’t get better than this. It’s so feminine, so retro, so modern, so effortless, sophisticated and sexy without the slightest effort – it’s intoxicating..

4. FLUID SKIRTS & PLEATS.

5. MINI SKIRTS.

Untitled design (5)Well… they will always be in once temperatures rise and every woman and girl will be wearing them on weekends and holidays regardless of trends. Which actually makes them quite a staple.

6. DENIM SKIRTS.

Untitled design (6)Did I say the 70s are back? There is something so proper, retro, and yet so very very very chic about a denim mid-lengh skirt with side pockets or front buttons that actually looks amazing in all the forms!

7. PRINTED SKIRTS.

Untitled design (2)They are having a major moment in 2016 spring, with florals still IN, cause it’s spring, so… what else is new, but also anything else actually, especially psychedelic, graphic style prints, in muted or bright shades. Whatever floats your boat.
