3 jean problems, 3 solutions

Jeans have always been the hardest thing for a women to shop for.. 

because for one: no one woman has the same exact body shape and for two: not every “trend” is for everybody. Fortunately for you as long as you have a great fit that accentuates your figure your jean will never go out of style! Here are some common problems that a lot of people have with jeans and lucky for you I have a solution for each of them!

THE PROBLEM: 

The Little/ Flat Butt

THE SOLUTION: 

This is a problem I struggle with so it is the one I am most knowledgeable about. I’ve looked high and low to find ways to make my rear end look larger. These are the best tips I’ve come up with:

  • Look for back pockets with details such as pocket flaps, embellishments, designs, etc.  Pretty much the more bulk and dimension your pocket has the bigger it will make your butt look.
  • Look for pockets that are spaced a little wider. The wider the pockets are spaced will give your bump more width.
  • Stick with a low to mid rise. The lower your rise is to your butt will make it look plumper rather than a high rise that would  certainly make your already flat butt look too long.
  • Choose a jean with stretch (lycra) in it not a stiff jean. Lycra is a material they put in jeans to make them more stretchy and less stiff. A stiff jean will only make your butt look flat and squished while a jean with stretch helps follow the curve of your figure.

THE PROBLEM:
Big Hips and Thighs
THE SOLUTION:
This is another big issue that a lot of women are faced with but to me is one of the simplest problems to solve!
  • ALWAYS choose a dark washed jean. The darker the jean the slimmer the effect. It always looks classier and more put together to wear a dark washed jeans rather than a light worn one. “Worn” and faded jeans will almost alway emphasize the area in which they are most worn which usually happens to be the thigh.
  • Choose a straight style jean. A jean that is straight style follows a straight line from your hip to your ankle, In doing so it doesn’t buckle at your knee. When your jean buckles at the knee it will make the other parts of the jean look larger so definitely chose a jean that does not hug your knees.
  • Choose a jean with a little more of a flare/ boot cut. AS LONG AS it doesn’t hug your knees too much, you can choose this style jeans also. It will help bring proportion to your legs by adding a little width to your calves.
  • Get a jean with flat or no pockets in the front. Pocket openings almost always add width to wear they are so to divert that pick a jean with a faux pocket or a pocket that sits completely flat on your hip.

THE PROBLEM:
The curve-less woman.
THE SOLUTION:
The woman with a pretty straight frame, not much hips, and not much (if any at all) is this type. One of the most easy women to dress, here are some helpful hints to put a little hour in your straight glass.
  • A skinny jean or jegging. The closer the jean openings are to your ankle, the more it will emphasize the other parts of your legs. By making this area of your jeans the closest to your body the more curvaceous it will make your hips look.
  • Pick a rise that sits right on your hip. Picking a jean that sits on the widest part of your hip will help your figure stand out more.
  • A distressed jean. You can really wear any type of jean but picking one with some fading and distressing in the thigh area will give you a little more curve.
  • Colored/printed jeans. For one its a big trend right now and for two a brighter color on the bottom half of your body will make it look a little larger.

Product Review: Relvon Lip Butter Color Burst

Lip Butters
I was never really a lipstick girl.. 
but lately I’ve really been getting into the idea of a brighter pout and when I discovered Revlon Lip Butters (about $7.99) I wondered was I was thinking not diving into this sooner! These particular lip color are advertised as a cross between a lip balm and a lipstick. So it has all the moisture properties of a balm and the coloring of a lipstick. For me personally, I thought the color pay off is pretty impressive for a hybrid lip color. On more casual days I can tap on the Lip Butter and get a little bit of color on my lips and on days when I want a little more I glide it on and it gives me the most beautiful bright pink pout (depending on the color you get of course). These colors can be worn alone because it also has a great shine to it. Overall I do always prefer to put a lip balm under any lip product I wear just incase anything gets a little dry but it is definitely unnecessary to do that with the Revlon Lip Butters. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best of the best!) I would rank this product as a 8, as amazing as it is, it does require you to put it on multiple times in a day because it comes off quite quickly. Other than that I have no complaints. Have you tried a Lip Butter or a lipstick hybrid? Let me know what you think of it or share any of your favorite lip products in the comments!

Transitional Piece: Leather (High vs. Low)

Fall is slowly creeping upon us… 

And I’ve been seeing a lot of people using Leather (or faux leather) to start helping transition there summer wardrobe to a fall one. I have put together some looks to help you try this out in your wardrobe. I did high end looks and also their affordable counterparts.

Leather Shorts: I think shorts are the easiest way to see if leather or faux leather is for you. They easily add a little edge to any outfit. I added a collared shirt in the color of the season and cute booties to stay on trend. The high-end shorts are $255 from Kelly Bergin and the budget friendly version are $20 from Forever21!

Hi vs. Low: Leather Shorts

Equipment shirt / Sweet Tarts Button Up Shirt / Forever 21 faux leather shorts / Kelly Bergin short shorts, $255 / Black boots / Jeffrey Campbell high heels, $200

Leather Skirt: This is by far my favorite leather piece this season. They are perfect for a date or a night out with your friends depending on how your style it. I decided to glam this one up so I added shirts with embellished necklines and spike crystal heels to keep it a little tough without looks like a biker! So Chic!The High-end skirt is $396 by Alice + Olivia. The budget friendly version is $23 from Forever21.

Hi vs. Low: Leather Skirt

Charlotte Russe rhinestone top / Roberto Cavalli see through top / Alice + Olivia box pleat skirt / Forever 21 skirt / Casadei pumps / Black platform shoes, $56

Leather Pants: Pants are definitely the most daring on the three looks but when you do it (and do it RIGHT) you can totally elevate your style to a higher level. I made this looks more simple with the white blouse and jazzed it up some with killer red peep toe pumps! If your pants do not have pockets in the back of them I would suggest you always choose a shirt that covers most of your behind so as not to look, for lack of a better word non-flattering.The high-end pants are $4,280 from net-a-porter and the budget friendly version is a whopping $25 from forever21.

Hi vs. Lo: Leather Pants

Gucci blouse / Forever 21 / Forever 21 faux leather pants / Balmain snap pants / Luichiny red booties / Giuseppe Zanotti platform stiletto heels, $705

All the High-end looks are on the left and the lower-end are on the right. Could you tell right away which was which? Which look was your favorite? And which leather trend are you most likely to embrace? Please leave a comment below letting us know! Happy Shopping! 🙂
