Levi’s 501 CT Are The Best Boyfriend Jeans To Wear

I was twelve years old when I got my first pair of Levi’s 501 jeans. I remember that at that time everybody wore Levi’s 501. It was a cult jeans, a must have.
In Italy this jeans wasn’t really cheap. My mom didn’t buy me a pair, especially considering that I was young and I was still changing my cloth size. Totally accetable.
However, my family has a friend who lives in United Stated and when she came to visit us and she asked me if there was something that I would have loved to receive from the States I didn’t have any doubts: bring me the jeans!!

And so it happened in this way. A very young me got her first pair of Levi’s 501 and she was the happiest girl.

Hard to believe, but last month I felt again the same happiness. I was invited to the grand opening of Levi’s store at Gulf Mall and my eyes caught the most perfect pair of jeans on a mannequin. Baggy, boyfriend style, short cut. Everything that I love in a jeans. You can imagine my surpirse when I realized that that model was again a 501 but totally revised to make it look more modern.

I can’t live without jeans. They are always my first solution when I don’t know what to wear. I grab a pair, I add a T-shirt or a casual shirt on and pair it with sneakers or heels. I think jeans is really the most versatile item in a woman wardrobe.

If you are also a fan of super-relaxed jeans, you know that it can be a real challenge to find a pair one that looks really great on you (read: that it doesn’t make you look like you are carrying extra kilos around). And when finally you can proclaim “I found the best jeans ever” is like to discover the holy grail.

There are no doubts that the skinny model is the best choice for shaping the body but, trust me, you can look gorgeous also with a more relaxed style. With many years spent to try on jeans, I can finally share with you what I do when I buy/wear a pair of boyfriend jeans.

1.Size matters.

Nothing is more important that to get the right size. Boyfriend jeans tents to loose their fit becoming even more loosened. For this reason I’m always sure to buy a very tight size. Sometimes even a size smaller than mine. It can be difficult to wear the jeans for the first couple of hours but then it becomes a sort of glove!

2.Choose the right wash.

I experienced by the time that when I don’t really feel on shape I want to move the attention from my hips. On these days I wear a light wash jeans matched with a darker blouse or sweater. The darkest color attract the sight, balancing your figure too.

3. The Devil is in the details.

Small pockets are not the best choice for curvy girls. If you aren’t particular tall you can roll up your jeans but they must sit at least one inch above the ankle.
