Start any outfit right with the perfect boys denim
Jeans just might the single most important item of clothing for boys. Forget that jeans become a staple in everyone's wardrobe, but few clothing items can hold up (and keep up) with the rough and tumble world of kids as boys' denim. Jeans are good in almost any situation and are remarkably sturdy. Almost all outfits for guys begin with the right pair of jeans. The comfort and versatility of denim even lends itself to jean shorts that become handy in warmer weather.
As simple of an item as jeans are, there is a lot to consider when making a purchase. Clearly, finding the right size is important, but other factors are worth considering. You can find jeans in many colors, from a light blue to black and everything in between. Then there is the type of wash, which gives denim a desired effect. You can choose from stonewash/enzyme, acid wash, sandblast and abrasion to name a few. Confused? Don't be. All jeans should include the wash on their tag or online description. Simply ask what look he likes and check the tag!
After getting the right size, the most important aspect of picking out jeans is the fit, or cut. Depending upon your boy's sense of style and, most importantly, his comfort, this will help find the perfect pair of jeans. The most common style is the straight cut. Known for its classic look, the straight-cut jean will sit at the natural waist and is slim through the seat and thigh. These are those classic pants you see boys belt and pair with a button down. Next up is the boot cut. These were designed to be worn with boots, naturally, and are easily recognizable by the way in which the lower leg is wider. These jeans sit lower on the waist and are looser throughout the seat and leg. Low-rise jeans are another popular option. These jeans sit lower on the waist but can have any type of cut. Because of where these jeans sit, it's best to avoid shorter length shirts.
For those looking for less-standard jean types, there are a few options. Firstly, there are wide-leg jeans. These jeans sit naturally at the waist but have a loose fit through the seat and thighs. This type of jean is good for many body types because they appear to be a little baggy. Lastly, there are skinny jeans. If ever there were a self-explanatory type of jean this is it. Skinny jeans often sit lower on the waist and are narrow through the seat and leg. There is not much wiggle room with this option, but they have come back into style with a vengeance.
