We all have one, a best friend who is so polished, so amazing and fits you so well when you first meet him or her, but over time, your relationship loosens and you see them less and less, until finally they just don’t fit you anymore. This happens to everyone who has ever had a love story with a pair of jeans. You start off trying them on in the store and “WOW, they fit like a glove and everything looks great in them”. A few months later, after many washes, your jeans start to get loose and they are shades lighter. Disaster!
So how can you prolong the life of your jeans? The answer is actually quite simple: with a lot of love and a little bit of patience.
The number one rule when caring for denim is to NEVER, I say NEVER dry it in the dryer. You see, most of your jeans contain spandex, which is what makes them so comfortable and so easy to slip on. Spandex is great but it is also fragile; it’s biggest weakness is heat. Heat will make the Spandex melt or loose it’s ability to be elastic. So when you put your jeans in the dryer you are actually hurting them. So, be patient, hang them up and they will live much longer. The same rule applies for when you wash your jeans; try not to wash them in hot water. By simply adding a little more detergent in cold or warm water you will get the same result then if you washed your clothes in a hotter setting.
The second most important rule is to wash your jeans inside out. Do you love the color of your denim? Well, dye will fade quickly if it is not properly taken care of, and washing your jeans inside out will prevent the dye from fading.
Lastly, jeans are made to be loved over and over again; they do not need to be washed after every single wear. The more you wash them, the faster they go. We make jeans so that you can get several wears out of them, so that they can follow you wherever you go.
So now that you’ve got all the tools to take care of your best friend, we can guarantee that you will have a much longer and blossoming relationship.

I Wear My Heart On My Jeans
If you ask me what items in my closet are the most important I won’t say my purse, my beautiful collection of stilettos and boots, or my leather jacket, I will, without hesitation say my jeans. Denim is so incredibly versatile, it can be dressed up to wear to work or on a fancy date, yet, and it can also be your favorite everyday partner to face the real world. So, if denim is every woman’s best friend, why is it so incredibly hard to find a pair of jeans that fits and shows off YOUR best attribute, not the size “00” 6feet 10inches model’s best attribute. Let’s face it: we are real women, we have curves and they are sexy.
