Correct hems for different types of jeans
It is true that the right hem on the jeans will make a significant difference on the appearance, so it is quite importance to know which is the right hem depending on the style of jeans you use, so this time we will help you with this task.
“A correct hem of a pair of jeans will mean a difference on the way you wear them, so it is important not to wear them too long that the hem will be stained or worn, or not too short that they do not look well”, thinks Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, about this topic.
Here it’s an example of the right hems per some types of jeans we commonly wear:
Wide leg jeans – The longer these types of jeans are, the better they will look, but that does not mean you have to drag them every time you walk. The hems should be as closer to the floor as possible, look at a full-length mirror and make sure the long of the legs is never short, as this will not look good at all. Remember, all bell-bottomed jeans should be on the long side.
Skinny pants – Skinny jeans are probably the most popular ones nowadays, it is easy to know if you are wearing the right length on the hem as the openings on the ankle are narrower. Your skinny jeans should finish slightly below the ankle bones, the same rule applies on jeggings and leggings.
Cropped and Capri jeans – There is not an specific length for these jeans, as it depends on how short you want them, as long as they are not above the knees, anything that helps you flattering your legs will work.
“Jeans are easy to modify, if they are too long, you can cut them and sew them at home, but if you do not have experience on this area, a tailor cannot only alter the jeans, but can also advise which is the best hem for your jeans”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
