Whiskers Help Avoid Wider Looking Hips


Here’s a great tip from Donna Ida to take with you on your next denim shopping endeavor. Jeans with whiskers (especially of the subtle, natural-looking variety) can add some depth and dimension to your jeans’ crotch and hip area, and help you avoid looking wider and “blocky”. If you’re trying to look slimmer from the front, take this tip into consideration, and check out some great whiskered washes below.

3 Ways Denim Shirts Can Double As Jackets


Prepare to brave transitional weather by repurposing your denim shirts as denim jackets. For a longer, tunic-length denim shirt, just wear it like you would a jacket–slung open. Then throw your shirt over your shoulders for a casual look that’s great for dressing down a fancier going-out look. Or purposefully pick a smaller denim shirt (thrift stores are great for these), and wear as a cropped jacket with your summer dresses.

Wearing Neon Dresses For Spring? Add A Denim Jacket


Does the neon trend still feel too wild for your tastes? Tone down a neon dress (like Christopher Kane’s Barbara Lace Dress) with a denim jacket (like Topshop’s Tall Denim Western Jacket). We’re taking inspiration from style blogger Jenny Ong, who paired her neon yellow frock with a bleached denim motorcycle jacket.

Check out our inspiration below!

How To Ensure The Perfect Jean Hem Length


When you take in your jeans to get hemmed (for instance, via our Denim Therapy expert hemming service!) be sure to bring a pair of shoes with you to wear when getting measured. Before your jeans go under the knife you’ll want to make sure the shoes you measure with are the shoes you’re planning to pair with the jeans (or at the least, a similar heel/lack of heel). This will take the guess work out of figuring out the measurement you’ll be happiest with.

How to Wear Colored Denim: Neon with White Denim


One of our favorite ways to wear white denim is to accencuate your pair of jeans with a pop of color. You can keep the palette simple with white jeans, a white top and break up the outfit with a standard brown belt. But what will take this summer-ready outfit from basic to fashion forward? A dash, pop or hint of any neon. Bold and bright neons are stampeding the fashion scene this season and what way to better have your accessories stand out? What’s your favorite accent color?

How To Wear Colored Jeans: Color-Blocking


Even though monochromatic looks are fun, don’t shy away from pairing colored jeans with other strong colors! Take a hint from Bloomingdale’s and do this: “Boldly layer rich swaths of color to reach saturation point in standout style.” Bet you hadn’t thought about color-blocking with your denim, huh? Here’s one way you can do it–this combination of royal blue jeans and punchy orange top is striking, for sure.

Buy The Next Size Up If Jeans Have No Stretch


Here’s a denim shopping tip that will probably save you some frustration while you’re stocking up for spring—especially if you’re shopping online. You may have a general idea of your denim size, but be careful when shopping for denim without stretch. No stretch means no give, at all. Buy the next size up to avoid discomfort and muffin tops.

How To Know When Your Denim Waistband Fits


While denim shopping, keep this tip in mind: When you’re trying jeans on, it’s good to have a bit of room in the waistband. No one likes red marks from jeans that have been digging into their skin after a couple hours of sitting down (or even walking).

Insert two fingers between your skin and the waistband. If you can fit two, it’s a good fit. If you can fit your whole hand, they’re too big. If you can’t even fit one, they’re not the right jeans.
