Another tip is to hand wash jeans, which will allow the material to last longer. A mid weight, 8 to 11 ounces per yard, is also perfect for year round wear.

Fit: The right fit is what can make or break the look of a The waist should have enough room to fit one finger in between the pants and yourself and the denim must be fitted through the thigh and knee. The rise should be 1'? below your belly button but no more than 3'?.

Length: Jeans should touch the floor if you are wearing flats like comfy ballet slippers. With heels, the pant leg should be ¼'? above the floor on your back heel. Sunil also suggest that you should have separate pairs to wear with heels and flats.

Leg Shapes and Body Types: According to Sunil Ramchandani, bootleg jeans work best on Pear and Hourglass body shapes. Straight legs work best on Apple and Pencil body shapes and wide legs work best on Strawberry shaped body types
