Let us strip back the process and explain the science behind accelerating your fashion game.


Denim Styles

Boyfriend Denim –

A slouchy cut boasting a relaxed fit all the way from the waist, hip and down to the ankles. A style that is seen as masculine, although modified and designed for her. A style that is often referred to as borrowed from him, by her. It’s loose and comfortable. An everyday denim staple, a style that hides your unwanted body shape features (vulnerable ones) due to a generous amount of fabric on offer.

Wear tip: Belts and heels are a great style-add, accentuating a feminine touch to an item that depicts masculinity. Cuff this jean style at the ankles for a clean finish.

Bootcut Jeans (Flares) –

A jean that hugs the thighs and then flares out tapering at the knees and widens down to the ankles.

Wear tip: Designed to sit over your ankle boots for a 'polished' look. This style can create an illusion of one being taller and slimmer. It is still flattering as it creates shape for all figure types.

Mom Jeans –

A relaxed jean from the waist down and then tapers at the ankles. Often found to have a high waist.

Wear Tip: Tuck in a tee and throw on a bomber with some slides to complete your outfit. These jeans are great for flattering the figure while still offering uber comfort and not objectifying your body shape (due to the ample material on offer).

Skinny Jeans & Jeggings –

A skin-tight hugging fit from your waist to your ankles. Often snug in the seat, thigh region and ankles.

Wear tip: Throw on a blazer paired with a cute blouse, cami or graphic tee and you have a sophisticated/edgy look, which can be worn in the workplace and then quickly transition into an outfit to attend after-work drinks.

Slim Jeans –

A slim fit all the way down from your waist to your ankles.

Wear tip: Great for a casual outing, paired with a statement cardigan and sandals/wedges. A wonderful pick, for anyone with a slender frame, who wishes to not have skin hugging pants.

Straight Leg Jeans –

Same width from the thigh going straight down to the ankles.

Wear Tip: Choose a blouse which highlights your waist in this style of jean, to create a curvaceous shape that will embrace your feminine silhouette.

Wide Leg –

Fitted waist, relaxed thigh (creating extra room for those with thicker thighs), to then, extend out wider all the way to the ankles.

Wear tip:  Crop tops are a great way to elevate the look of wide leg denim jeans.
