Finding the Perfect Pair of Jeans

H&M Jeans, Leather Jacket, Spring Style


Lately, I find myself being fed up with the process of shopping. At one point it was a time where I would walk into any store, find a few random pieces, and purchase without thinking twice. I would get home with excitement thinking these pieces would be a great addition, only to wear them for the next few weeks and soon realize majority of my purchases are unwearable.


After a few weeks the skinny jeans that first fit like a glove were all of a sudden outstretched and would fall down as I walk. I’ve even experienced "denim" material fading in weird patches after a wash. Needless to say, I am done with purchasing jeans that are made from lycra more than actual denim material.

Buying new jeans can be dreadful especially when you’re looking for anything but a skinny fit. As much as the fashion world may be done with skin tight denim, my experience shopping would say otherwise. Store after store I found myself trying cropped skin tight denim or extremely loose and ripped. Trying on what looked like denim, but was more of a glorified legging. I was starting to get frustrated with what majority of stores were selling to women. I understand the comfort reasoning, but I feel myself craving the feeling of actual denim. When jeans used to have a structure and wouldn’t lose shape after a few wears. It wasn’t until this past weekend that I finally found a great pair of straight leg jeans.

The jeans that I am raving about are the H&M Girlfriend Regular Jeans. Similar to the boyfriend jean trend, but the overall fit is completely different. These hug your hips and thighs, unlike boyfriend jeans which can be too baggy and are especially unflattering on me. The straight leg creates a more flattering line for your entire leg. I also love how these jeans have a regular waistline, unlike most skinny jeans which are either too high waisted or low waisted. After wearing them for a full day, I can say that these jeans never had to be pulled up or fixed while I was on the move. These could easily be worn with a tshirt and sneakers or styled like I have here. With a  pair of heels these could easily be worn from day to night. The versatility is endless with these jeans!

I styled them to create a feminine look with an edge. The blouse I'm wearing has many of the trending details for this season. I especially love the ruffles along the neckline and sleeves. This top makes me feel ethereal and feminine so I wanted to add elements that would contrast with it. The first is my go to leather jacket. The next, dark purple loafers that have a patent effect with a small tassel. These shoes are a classic element to my wardrobe, but I find its details give them more of an edge. Let’s not forget the jeans! The raw edge at the hem combined with the relaxed fit offer a modern and masculine touch to the look. I paired it with a classic small cross body purse.









I could never see myself completely giving up my skinny jeans, but these jeans from H&M are definitely going to become a staple in my wardrobe!

    1. Thank You so much! I sometimes wonder when companies are making jeans if they really think about them having to fit all body types. It's definitely a long process finding the right pair of jeans.
