Finding the perfect jeans is at the top of most women's fashion wish list, but how do you avoid falling for the worst jeans? What's flattering on one woman may be truly tragic on another. Thankfully, there are ways to avoid these style grenades. "The biggest mistake women make when buying jeans is being in denial of their real size and choosing styles that are too small," style expert Lindsay Albanese told Yahoo Shine. As a spokesperson for T.J.Maxx and Marshalls, she suggests shopping for denim in department stores since they offer a range of on-trend styles and washes to flatter every woman's figure. Another denim red flag: "If you put them on and you feel that something is a bit off, choose another style," says Albanese. "You want to select jeans you feel you can do anything in."
