Denim must be treated differently from other clothing, and some extra attention can help extend their life. To keep your jeans looking new, it is essential to take special care, and we have a few tips to share!

Wash Your Jeans

You should most definitely wash your jeans (if you want them to last longer). If not, your denim will absorb all the dirt and sweat that comes with wear, creating serious friction, which will wear down the cotton. Never scrub the fabric, zip up before wash and be sure to wash them inside out using cold water, with a mild detergent. Select the delicate cycle setting if you choose to use a washing machine or put them in the tub. These rules are necessary especially if the denim has any embroidery or embellishments.

Hang Dry Them

You shouldn’t put your jeans in the dryer because subjecting denim to high heat causes creases (which increases stress points), the tension applied to the fabric. One of the worst nightmares to denim is getting too hot, so the dryer is the most dangerous place to be for jeans. At the same time do not squeeze or wring denim during the drying process. Once you’ve finished washing jeans, be sure to either : hang dry or lay flat in the shade.

Be Diligent About Repair

Crotch blowouts, crippled pockets, busted button-holes and frayed hems are all common plights associated with well-worn denim. But if they are left unchecked for a longer period, you may be sending your jeans to an early retirement.

Keep Them in Rotation

Do your best to avoid wearing the same pair week-in and week-out. It will slow down the process and give your jeans a chance to wear and dry out decades later.

Follow Safety Hacks

Some swear you should never machine wash jeans but laying opinions aside, be sure to follow these safety hacks and keep your basic blue and black denim looking as new as possible. Stuff denim inside thin cotton bags for the wash to help minimize the damaging your denim as well as other clothes and save their embellishments. Never iron/press denim as it wouldn’t be necessary unless the wash care suggests.

We hope that you wouldn’t have to find replacements as often as you used to. Your jeans are unique with your one-of-a-kind style. Keep them looking great wash after wash. Follow the tips and your denim will last a long time with the same shade. Love unconditionally and wear it like you mean it!

10 Fashion Tips for Every Girl

You’re searching from one side of your wardrobe to the other to match the right outfit, but you just can’t seem to find anything that matches. Sound familiar? This is the everyday struggle all women have, but you can make your life a lot easier with some genius fashion tips that allow you to appear effortlessly styled in any occasions. You can crop the ideas based on your personal style, body type, and personality, but most of these tips will work for any woman out there. Just scroll on for the styling tips fashion girls live by.

1. ACCESSORIZE IN BRIGHTS

If you’ve got a rack of neutral clothes, team them with boldly hued shoes and bags. Not only are they more lively but also surprisingly versatile. Wear a neutral lower with shoes and a bag in two different complementary colours. For instance, A white top and pale green pants with red shoes and a yellow bag.

2. EMBRACE YOUR SHAPE

The secret formula for a styling prowess is “Knowing her Strength.” Once you know which silhouettes complement your body, you can filter trends blindly. For instance, If you’re short and shapely, it’s best to avoid horizontal columns and billowy maxis. Go for a dress with a defined waist and that’s just-above-the-knee.

3. THROW ON A SCARF

Stash the ultimate accessory scarf in your purse or carry-on to transform simple tees to pull off the trend of the moment. For instance, A pair of jeans and t-shirt with a scarf around the neck will look awesome even without studs and makeup.

4. GO HANDS-FREE FOR EVENING

A sling bag with a chain lends a fresh edge to evening wear. Wear the sling diagonally across your body for the best effect. For instance, A bright sling bag slaves beautiful with lipsticks, an extra pair of earrings and rubber bands.

5. EDIT YOUR CLOSET

Clothes need some breathing room! You should be able to see every dress without rummaging. Donate anything you haven’t worn in the past year and embrace new trends. Go full-throttle into this season’s trends, take on the must-have statement shades and introduce them with no-fail favourites, like ankle-strap heels and a tee, for its effortlessly chic feel.

6. MAKE A LIST BEFORE YOU SHOP

Note down not of what you want to buy but of the 10 favourite items in your closet. This will help you zero in on choices with what you own (or remind you that you don’t own big floral prints).

7. WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR NUDE HUES

Match to your skin tone and grab nude shoes, they’re a pretty safe bet. And also that they make legs look longer.

8. KNOCKOUT EMPHASIS

If your evening party wear is a stunner with a lot of embellishment, one single showstopping accessory (a flashy earring) is all you need.

9. ALWAYS CHECK OUT THE REAR VIEW

Every angle matters. Don’t leave the house until you like yourself in the mirror. Inspect to perfect yourself or get somebody to check it for you, as introducing another pair of eyes could be of great help and advantage.

10. PAIR LOOSE WITH TIGHT

The street style darlings embrace basics to rock fashion with combinations. Pair a loose t-shirt with tight pants or leggings with a handbag.

Try adding creativity to the style tips and watch the compliments roll in.
