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: Bootcut: Bootcut Jeans are fitted through the Straightcut: The Straightcut is fitted at the hips Flarecut: Fun and Funky, the Flarecut hips and thigh, slightly flaring out at the and thighs, with the diameter of the leg opening cut has lots of retro appeal.

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.
