Forever In Blue Jeans

Denim or blue jeans can be found just about everywhere and range from affordable to very expensive, designer label prices. Denim is seen on fashion runways, in home collections and available in an array of finishes, embellishments, rises and fits. The denim market continues to evolve and grow every day, but I have to ask why is it so hard to find that perfect pair? Finding that perfect pair can be just as challenging as selecting the perfect swimsuit. If you are lucky enough to find a perfect pair they can make you feel like a million bucks, an ill-fitting pair though can leave you feeling down and out.

When shopping for the perfect pair it can be a bit challenging, especially since there are so many choices. You walk into the store and have to pick from low rise, mid rise, high rise, flared, boyfriend, trouser, vintage, stretch, curved, skinny, or boot cut. It can all be a bit overwhelming. There is a great resource called Zafu where it will ask you a few questions about your body type and preferences and then will give you several suggestions. With a source like Zafu at the very least it can narrow down your search a bit, now you can head to the mall with a attack plan to find that perfect pair.
I think Neil Diamonds 1979 hit song "Forever in Blue Jeans" said it all, don' t well.
What is your favorite brand of jeans? What is the most you are willing to pay for the perfect pair of jeans?

I used to never be able to fit into Levi's but then with all the options out there now, I've fallen in love with the bootcut 515's. I hope they never change up their fit because this style really works for me!

I love jeans, I wear them any chance I get. You can never go wrong with a pair of them, I love my faded relaxed fit pair.

I love your posts on clothes! I went to the site after your last post and found my best fit for jeans! Of course it was correct! Can't wait to get my next pair! Thanks Kristen...oh, and please convo me about the code you need for kristen's place...I'm not sure what you're referring to. With gratitude, laurie B.

I am forever loyal to Citizen of Humanity, however, now that my butt has gotten a little rounder [thanks to the squats!] I will have to jump ship and possibly go with Joe's Jeans.
