Not Only For the Thin – Designer Skinny Jeans Are Made For Every Body Type

It is official. The 80’s have made a comeback. Several seasons ago, skinny jeans took the world by storm and now, it looks like they’re here to stay. So are they really just for skinny people? Absolutely not. Designer skinny jeans are made for every body and by following a few simple guidelines, this look can be flattering on any body type. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

There are basically 3 types of skinny jeans:

  • Cigarette -This style is very similar to skinny jeans. The only difference is leg opening. The leg opening on skinny jeans gets smaller as it nears the ankle, whereas the leg opening on cigarette jeans stay the same from the knee down all the way to the ankle.
  • Straight leg – This classic cut is the most universally flattering style. There is usually no stretch to a straight leg jean, so it is less form fitting than the skinny and cigarette styles. This cut is slightly different from the cigarette jean. The leg opening on this jean stays the same from the thighs down.
  • Skinny – The 3 constituents that make up this style are form fitting, stretchy and ankle hugging. This style delivers the ultimate sprayed on look.

How To Wear Designer Skinny Jeans If…

  • You have large calves – Consider wearing cigarette jeans instead of skinnies. They are wider through the lower leg, which leaves room for your calves. You can additionally hide thick calves by wearing them tucked into boots.
  • You have a belly bulge – Any 3 of the skinny jean styles will work for anyone with tummy issues. Choose a pair that has a fair amount of stretch and a higher rise so they can really hold in your problem area. Pair this with a loose empire waist top and wear heels to elongate your legs and appear slimmer.
  • You have a big butt – Follow the same advice as for tummy issues. There are 2 things you need to keep in mind. One is to make sure the pockets on your jeans are low. They should end somewhere in the area where your butt and thighs meet to create a smaller looking behind. The other thing is your shirt needs to fall to the middle of your butt or longer.
  • You are tall and slim – Specialty cuts are often made in only one length, so it may be challenging for you to find skinny jeans that are long enough. When choosing the right pair of jeans for your body type, make sure they fall at least to your ankle. If they are too short, you can wear boots over them or wear heels with an ankle strap so that it looks intentional.
  • You are short and petite – Your problem is quite similar to those who are tall, since most jeans only come in one length. The upside is you can always get them hemmed. The downside is you’ll lose some of the skinniness at the ankle of you cut off too much. To avoid this issue, it is best to stick to cigarette jeans.

Designer skinny jeans are not reserved only for the runway and tall, gazelle looking super models. When you find a pair that fits and compliments your figure, you can look just as chic and stylish!

Men’s Vegan Summer Shoes

It’s finally summertime. Sand and sun, cool water, gorgeous skies and lots of fresh air. It’s a beautiful time of year… a welcome season for those who are exhausted by the harsh climate of winter and ready to move on from the ups and downs of spring. This is the time of year to enjoy being outdoors and having all the fun you can. With so much activity, however, you want to stay cool, especially in the outdoor heat.

Cool and comfortable in the summertime often means wearing as little as possible in the way of clothing and keeping that clothing as lightweight as possible. You want your skin to be able to breath underneath that material. Otherwise, you will be running as fast as you can for the nearest air conditioner. Most people have a full closet of summer clothing – shorts and t-shirts – but have you given much thought to what’s on your feet?

In the summer, it is both fun and comfortable to go barefoot. Who wants their feet shoved inside some enclosed shoe with a pair of socks in the sweltering heat? Since going barefoot is not always safe and is often not allowed in some places, the next best thing is summer shoes: sandals, flip-flops, or whatever your style choice may be.

Most men and women have a pair or two of summer shoes amongst their footwear. However, if you’re a man in the market for men’s summer shoes, there are a lot of options on the market these days. You could run right out and buy any old pair to get your feet through the summer season, or you could consider your choices carefully.

Did you know that most shoes on the mainstream market are made with materials that harm both the animals and the Earth? That’s some real food for thought! These days, it is hard to avoid being somewhat conscious of such things. After all, with the increasing popularity of living a “greener” lifestyle, more and more people are seeking out earth-friendly products, and they are becoming more widely available. If you consider yourself an Earth friendly guy, you can reflect this belief in your choice of men’s summer shoes.

Men’s vegan summer shoes are the perfect fit! Made from natural plant fibers or synthetics and often employing recycled materials, no animals are harmed in the making, of these shoes. Men’s vegan summer shoes will even biodegrade in the end, because of their harmless materials and dyes. They’re ultra cozy too. Remember that break-in period that left your feet sore and blistered with that last new pair of shoes? There is no need to break these shoes in. The materials are made to stretch and breath, making your feet comfortable all summer long.

Men’s vegan summer shoes come in the same styles, designs and colors as mainstream shoes. There are even shoes made to look like leather and other fashionable materials, but no animals have to suffer for vegan shoes. Whether you buy them online or in a retail store, you won’t have to pay more for vegan options than you would for other guys’ shoes, making vegan summer shoes a great option for any eco-conscious guy!
