fitting jeans without trying them on

I fell victim to coloured jeans today (sigh). I vowed I wouldn't but I saw a pair of mint green BDG skinnys at Urban Outfitters and I just went for it.  But, that's not why I'm writing this post.

Instead I want to fill you in on a little tip and one I've been meaning to bring up, but I always forget.

Since I was in a hurry and didn't have time to try these jeans on today, I remembered my little fitting secret. All you do is hold the pair of pants in question in front of you by the waist and wrap the waist around your neck. If you can wrap the waist around your neck and touch each side and you're not choking yourself  and their not overlapping then the jeans will be a perfect fit.

This method totally works! The next time you're too lazy or too hurried to try a pair of pants on, give it a go!

Happy shopping!

It’s honestly the best method! It works every time.

Hey…this is a really a helpful tip! I remember the (slightly hyperbolic!) Larry David line, that there is nothing more humiliating than trying on pants. And glad to hear you caved to the coloured jeans trend. My pink jeans and I welcome you ;)
