Style advice?


THERE IS NO PROBLEM DENIM CANNOT FIX. I cannot stress that enough.

Years ago, I hated wearing jeans. They were always too tight, too short, too dark, or too something. I never wore them, and any pair I owned had to be an expensive pair. I was convinced that they fit better and would change my mind, and expose me to the joy of the blue material.

I was so wrong.

There was nothing that would make me like jeans until I liked myself. After some changes through the last few years (aka college years of eating nothing but cereal and peanut butter) I began to actually like my body. Once that happened, my love of denim flourished. Everything began to fit better and made me actually enjoy wearing them.

I probably own six pairs of jeans now, ranging in colors from black, to white, to a light shade of blue (I still maintain that dark jeans do not look good on me). I wear them at least 5 days a week, because I’m lucky enough to have a job where I can wear jeans.

The style point here is, jeans will save your wardrobe. Those short dresses I wear on the weekends double as tops over a good pair of skinny jeans during the week. A denim jacket can take your sundress from a party to the office. A denim vest makes something girly look edgy. And a solid pair of flares will change your life (maybe it’s just me on that one- no promises).

My other point here is, I didn’t decide to love wearing jeans because they suddenly looked good on a thinner body. The point is that I became happy with myself, and that made the difference. If you think some article of clothing doesn’t work on you, check your self confidence before swearing it off forever.
