FINDING THE right pair of jeans can often seem like a mission.
If you’ve been lucky enough to love the first pair of jeans you’ve tried on, then well done to you.
But for the majority of us, shopping for a new pair of jeans can take hours, going in endless amounts of shops and struggling to find the perfect fight.
However, thanks to fashion expert Kenzie, known on TikTok as ‘stylingwithkenzie’, here’s her simple tips for finding the perfect pair of jeans, without needing to try them on.
So if spending hours struggling in a changing room doesn’t appeal to you, you’ll want to start taking notes quick.
The fashionista shared her clever tip video to TikTok with the caption ‘searching for the perfect jeans’.
She explained: “Come with me as I search for the perfect pair of jeans.”
Kenzie shared her four very simple tips that you must pay attention to when looking for a pair of jeans – the zipper, the denim colour, the yoke and the pockets.
She continued: “There are four things you need to pay attention to when shopping for jeans – the length of the zipper, the wash of the denim, the shape of the yoke and the placement of the pockets.
“In this series, I’m going to cover both luxury brand jeans and jeans that are under $100.
“My goal is to see if I can find a pair of jeans that fit all of the four style requirements.”
The first thing that Kenzie warns people to look out for is the length of the zipper.

She explained: “So the number one thing you want to look for in your jeans is the length of the zipper.
“If your jeans are high-rise, you want your zipper to cover at least ¾ of the zipper area.
“On low-rise jeans, the zipper will appear shorter, however you still want the ¾ rule to apply to these jeans as well.
“If the zipper is too short, it will create a bulging effect when you wear them.”
Secondly, Kenzie recommends shoppers pay close attention to the wash of the denim when looking for the perfect pair of jeans.
She added: “Next is the wash of the denim – now this is a small detail that most people overlook because it’s considered a style preference but the light cast on jeans can emphasise the zipper and the thighs, giving the appearance that the fabric is wrinkled under the front pocket.
“Personally, this light cast makes your jeans look cheaper and less durable and when it’s on your thighs and your bottom it can make you look larger than you are.
“I recommend selecting jeans that are one shade of denim or have limited fading, as this will make your jeans look more expensive and higher quality.”
You may or may not have heard of the term yoke before, but according to this fashionista, the yoke is something you must pay attention to.
Kenzie explained: “The yoke is another detail that affects the overall fit of your jeans.
“The yoke is the back seam above the pockets and when you’re looking at this, there’s a simple rule to remember.
“The more v-shaped it is, the more rounder your butt will look.”
Finally, Kenzie highlighted that the placement of pockets on jeans is another thing that is very important that you get right.
She concluded: “And lastly, the placement of your pockets matters – you want pockets that are placed about 3-4 finger lengths apart and above the crease of your butt.
“Pockets that are placed further apart will give the appearance that your butt is wider than it is.
“And pockets that are too large and extend down below the butt will give the look that your butt is smaller and lower.”
Kenzie’s video has clearly impressed many, as it has racked up a whopping 993.6k views.
