For ladies, the hunt for the perfect fitting jeans is often as elusive as the hunt for the perfect man!
Although we think we know what we want, in reality our pick can be somewhat off and we need some expert advice on what is right for us.
Help is at hand from the Fairhill Centre, as the leading retail outlet brings us the latest 3D body scanning technology and combines it with a free body shaping and styling event.
The ‘Jeanetics-It’s All In The Jeans’ event will take place on Saturday, March 12 from 11am to 5pm and Sunday, March 13 from 1pm to 5pm.
Grainne Devine, from Fairhill, said: “SS16 is a massive season for denim and there is nothing more satisfying than getting a well fitting pair of jeans that will make you look and feel great.
“Our 3D body scanner will define everyone’s body shape categorising them in one of five shapes. This is a free event and we encourage shoppers to come along to check out their true body measurements.
“So many of our stores have denim ranges from Topshop, Miss Selfridge, River Island and Next among others so you will make sure you look hot to trot this season.”
Denim Dos and Don’ts:
* Avoid over treated pairs. Ripped, whiskered (the ugly white lines across your thighs) and very worn looking are not a good look this season;
* Watch your length. A little ankle on show is a good thing; a straight pair with material bunched around the ankle is not a popular choice.
* With footwear think opposites: A slim leg benefits from a chunkier shoe (like a brogue or loafer), a stiletto only really looks modern with a boyfriend or looser cut. Skinny heels and skinny jeans is very Wag. Avoid.
* Keep an eye on the pockets as they can make a real difference in shaping your behind. A button down pocket will give a curvy J-Lo effect as they will ‘lift’, pocket seams that draw down into a point will give added definition and bigger pockets are also good for balancing.
