Ah, jeans, the staple wear! The dream of creating a hundred different looks with a single pair of pants is entirely possible with jeans. Jeans are pants made from denim, and they were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873. They were first worn by workers because of its high durability, and later they became a fashion item. Now, many offices allow denim in the workspace!

How to Look Sharp in Jeans?

When buying denim, you should focus on two things: fabric and fit. Good quality jeans are made from a heavier weight of denim - a high thread count is a sign of better quality fabric. Don’t be afraid that they may feel heavier, or even a bit stiff, once you break them in, they will soften and also conform better to your body shape. Fit is also important, make sure they fit properly and flatter your figure.

For a formal look, you should avoid jeans that are loose and baggy. Low-rise jeans also look more youthful and casual, so opt for a medium or high rise. Straight-leg jeans look more like pants than skinny jeans, and they are a great choice for a fun night out with friends and a casual meeting with a client. Dark jeans are always a good idea when you try to look more formal but still comfortable. Dark blue shades but also black and dark grey jeans are a great choice!

Besides the fabric, fit, and color of your jeans, it is also very important what you wear with them. To create a dressy look, pair them with the right top, shoes, and accessories.

  • For a professional look, add a ​blazer

Wearing a t-shirt paired with jeans is casual and excellent for the everyday outfit, but if you want to dress up, throw on a blazer. You will quickly create a business-casual look. Fitted blazers are perfect, and if you choose a ​non-traditional color of blazers​ even better. If you prefer the traditional colors of a blazer, like ​navy​ and black, we would recommend a lighter, non-blue color of jeans with it.

While it’s true that nowadays people like to shop online, it doesn’t mean that brick-and-mortar stores are completely out-of-style. We still get a high volume of customers, not only in the summer, but also in the off-season, and we decided that this is a perfect year to give our customers better in-store shopping experience, as we celebrate our 75th anniversary!
