Women’s Jeans

Welcome back to our Fashion Guide




In this installment of Guide to Fashion, we’ll be exploring Women’s Jeans. How to choose the
perfect pair, what are the different cuts, rises, fits and washes, and of course who are today’s top
designers and labels.

Guide to Fashion: Arriesgado Clothing’s captivating series that examines how to dress well, look
good at any occasion, and have the confidence to carry yourself like a true fashionista.
Jeans, Jeans, Jeans, where do you start. Of course you already own several pairs. By now, they
are probably a natural extension of you. They look good, feel right, so what do you need a guide
for. Well, let me ask you something, have you ever tried on a pair of Paige Denim’s or True
Religions before? If you haven’t, then listen up. You are missing out BIG TIME! Got that. Not
all jeans are created equal. Far from it. Until you’ve actually tried on a pair of modern designer
jeans, specifically made for your body type, you really are not getting the most possible comfort,
and looking your best. Those of you who have tried on a pair, know what I’m talking about. The
difference they make is unbelievable. And we’re not talking about the mass produced Calvin
Klein’s’ and Donna Karen’s. Those may have had some appeal back in the early 90’s, but that’s
where they should stay.

The new designer labels that are just coming into their own in the last few years, focus on

available before. So even if you own a pair or two of these fabulous modern designers, keep
reading. Arriesgado Clothing’s Guide to Fashion, is going to share with you how to choose the
perfect pair, maybe clear up a few misconceptions, and fill you in on the hottest designer labels
so you can stay well ahead of the pack, looking fashionably great.
             When it comes to describing a pair of jeans, there are four main categories. The cut, fit, rise, and
             wash. While the last of these is strictly aesthetic, knowing which combination of the first three
             works best for you is essential in finding the perfect pair of jeans. So, let’s have a look at what
             these terms mean:

             The Cut: The cut refers to the jeans’ leg shape, how wide or narrow, whether or not it is tapered,
             or flares out. Let Arriesgado Clothing’s Guide to Fashion illustrate:

The Wash: And finally the wash refers to the actually color and finish of the jeans. This is how
the jeans are processed in the manufacturing stage to produce a unique look. A combination of
dying techniques, various chemicals, and abrasion methods are used to create the end result. I
would recommend that once you have determined your fit, cut, and rise, to get several styles of
washes to keep in your wardrobe to have lots of versatility at your disposal. Some washes are
classic and suitable for any occasion, while others are just fun, and can with the right shoes and
accessories create a really impactful look. Here are some of the more popular washes:

embellish their jeans with creative accessories and finishes. These can range from intricate

endless, with each designer striving for that “must have” look in women’s jeans.
