Denim has come a long way from its rugged form of the 18th century to a stylish piece of garment thats chic and comfortable. And leading this evolution of one of the most favourite fabrics in the world is Police Jeans.
Ever since its inception more than three decades ago (yes, its that old), the brand of jeans has been a trendsetter of sorts for others to follow.
On the back of its experience in the field of clothing, Police Jeans has gone so diverse that often, its very hard to pick the pair of jeans that best fits you. We all know that its not only the brand which makes you look good; its the right fit and the right fabric too which makes the difference.
And for ladies, selecting the right fit of jeans is a hard task indeed, considering that most ladies have heavier hips and thighs, unlike men, who accumulate fat on their tummy. So, how do you make sure that you make the best of the wide variety of sizes, fits and designs that Police Jeans has?
Well, it is as simple and as difficult as determining your body type and selecting the fit accordingly. Lets take a look at the different body types and then we will jump to what fit suits which body type the best and some general rules while shopping for a pair of denims.
Determining The Body Type Before Selecting A Pair Of Police Jeans
To start with, there are women who are blessed with an hourglass figure, the 36-24-36 variety. An hourglass body type has a firm bust and rounded hips, with an accentuated waistline; and as the description may have given you the picture, it is very hard to achieve, although examples do exist.
Moving on to more realistic body types, most women in their late forties and beyond have a pear shaped body. As the name suggests, they are thin on the top and very heavy on the bottom, just like a pear. A pear shaped body is usually categorised by prominent hips which often cause a hindrance to selecting the right fit.
However, given the active lifestyles that most women follow today and the obsession with size zero these days, it is boyish figure which is common among women. If you have a small bust, flat hips and a boyish waistline, you fit into this category. And then there is the opposite of pear shaped, the inverted triangle, where the bottom becomes light and the top becomes heavy. If you have a heavy bust and a flat or very slightly rounder bottom, you have an inverted triangle body shape.
The right fit
Now that we have an overview of the different body types, lets look at what fit of Police Jeans suits which body type the best. For an hourglass figure, it is best to avoid too much embellishments or large pockets around the hip and the thigh area. Since you are already blessed with a great body, you dont want to ruin it by making your hips and thighs look bigger. As for the cut of the jeans, anything suits an hourglass figure, from boor cut to flares and straight fits.
For the pear shaped body type, it is best to go for stretchable fabric as it falls on your body naturally. Also, avoid going for straight fits and instead opt for flares or boot cuts. The accentuating fall of the flares gives you a leaner look and makes your heavy hips look smaller. Another golden rule- avoid horizontal washes, and instead opt for vertical ones. Thankfully, Police Jeans has a lot of variety to choose from.
As for the ubiquitous rectangular body type, straight fit and skinny jeans work best. Look for a pair that has heavy embellishments or bulky pockets around the hip or thigh area as they add volume. However, avoid baggy jeans, as they take away the form from your body. Rectangular body shapes with a thin waist can also carry off low rise jeans very well indeed.
Women with inverted triangle shape look best in boot cuts as it adds volume to their lower portion, making them in proportion with their upper body. Always remember the golden rule while dressing up- its all about keeping the body in proportion. Also, for this body type, light washes and jeans in lighter shades work better than dark colored ones. Light shades add volume to the body, and thats what this body type wants.
Police Jeans has a lot of variety when it comes to the fit, the color, the design, the embellishments, the washes and everything else. It is upon you to choose the best that fits you, because brands like Police Jeans can only make stuff for you, they cant make you choose the right one.
