Every fashionista knows that denim is the single most essential piece in a woman’s wardrobe. A great pair of jeans keeps us looking and feeling good day in and day out. We dress denim up and down, we wear it to work and play, and nothing makes us feel more confident than the perfect fit. Unfortunately, sometimes finding that perfect fit can be a bit daunting, but fear not ladies, because, this Saturday, J Brand’s “Denim Guru” is coming to Rouge…
Oscar Adames is the Fit Specialist (aka “Denim Guru”) at J Brand, our all-time favorite denim line. He has worked in the fashion industry for 17 years and has been specializing in J Brand for the past seven. He is not only an expert in denim, but also an expert on how to style denim to best highlight a woman’s assets, making her look and feel her best. Made Paper interviewed Oscar last September for some tips and insight into his denim genius…
What is the most common mistake women make when buying denim?
Women always think they are one size bigger than they are. They focus on what they think their faults are rather than accenting the positives. Focus on the style and fit that looks best on you rather than hiding what you think is wrong.
Is there a fit or style that is a universally flattering fit for most body types? Skinny, Straight, Flare, Boot Cut?
J Brand Maria High Rise Skinny is a universal fit for women.
What is your most asked question when fitting women?
“Does my “sitting area” look good in these jeans?”
Are your subjects more likely to buy “outside of their comfort zone” when you fit them?
Yes. I get women to wear what looks good on them rather than what they “think” looks good on them. The way others see you is not how you see yourself and this is a hard thing for women to understand on their own.
What “rules” can you give our readers for buying a great pair of jeans?
BE OPEN MINDED. Be open to multiple styles that will accent different areas of your shape in different outfits. You may need a few different pair of jeans to complete different looks – don’t settle on one pair or fit.
Who is your easiest subject to fit in a jean?
A confident women who is not afraid to show what she has. Jeans are like bathing suits: they show everything. A woman who is not afraid to walk out that door showing what God gave her always wears them best!
