Affordable, fashionable jeans

Located on New North Road in Kingsland is 14 oz, a shop dedicated to jeans and who stocks top brands such as Rollas, Neuw and A Brand.

Two pairs for $140 is their current deal or one pair for $80.   Such a great price!  I recently tried on several pairs (poor guy in the shop!) and decided on a wide legged, mum style -ish kind by Scandinavian brand Neuw.

From skinnies to high waisted and wide legged, there is a good range to choose from.   They don't have a website but a Facebook page here

Make sure it's on your go-to list.

How to make your bum look hot in jeans

Are you one of the many women who struggles to find denim jeans to suit their shape?  Yep it can be a painful process what with all the options out there and it's quite a common occurrence to see jeans that are not well suited to the bum inside them.   I'm hoping to give a little bit of advice so you can see how the pockets on your jeans can play a MASSIVE role in how your jeans look from behind.  Here are a few things to consider:

  • It's all about the 'yoke'.  The yoke is the piece of fabric between the waistband and the pockets. The V-shape should be positioned around the top part of your bum see below:
  • The bottom of your back pockets should sit where your cheek and thigh meet.  See below example of women of different sizes and shapes showing how this works in a pair of GAP jeans.

  • Here is pic of when this does not quite work (EEEK)....
  • You will also see here that the distance between the pockets is important to your shape. Pockets wide apart can sometimes make your bum/hips appear wider.  Opt for a pair where the pockets are in the middle.

Now, if you know of someone who wears their jeans as per the photo above - please kindly slip them my number or send them this post :)

  • And finally, point 2 flies out the window somewhat when you are a size 6 or smaller and can wear your pockets high like this!   Confused??    Call me for a jean edit and guided shop today!  x
