Founder, designer, and president, with the responsibility of creative direction and vision for Fidelity Denim, Jason Trotzuk, is here today to answer the winning question in the Trust Your Style Fidelity Jeans Giveaway.
And the winning question....is:
How should one choose the cut, wash and shape of the jeans in relation to the body type, height, and skin complexion? I'm petite, average build, and have a medium complexion--so what should I look for while buying my jeans??
jason: Go with your gut instinct. Feel comfortable in whatever you wear and you can pull it off with confidence. If you're tall you can wear anything and make it look great. For the shorter woman stick to the bootcut. It's always a winner and is timeless. If you're curvy go for a higher waisted jean with a bit of flare to accentuate your figure.
No matter what, always try on a bunch of pairs. Don't just buy a pair of jeans because of the brand name. Fit is key to getting a long life out of a pair of premium jeans.
