Female Speaker: So let's go over really quickly just some quick tips for you guys, in order to avoid the mom jeans. Number one is, do not use jean as girdle or bra, okay. We get a lot of women in here who try to do that, who say to me, I don't like when my junk kind of hangs out and is all over the place. Fine! Not a problem, I understand. But understand that the minute you start popping up the rise, a lot of times it is going to shorten down your leg, okay. And unless you have a long torso, a long enough torso, to kind of pull off that proportion, you really are going to make yourself look stuffy.
So use the jeans for what the jean was meant to be used for. It is meant to cover your butt and your legs. It is not meant to double us as bra. It is not meant to girdle you in. And there are actually bras meant to be worn as bras, and there are things that are girdles and there are also spanx. Spanxs are fantastic, I highly endorse a spanx. Spanx is a company done by woman and she knows what she is doing and that stuff will just suck you right in. So use the jean for the purpose intended and kind of stick to that, okay.
Don't do all light one tonal jeans. Okay, the thing that -- the rule is women should really -- if you are going to stick with the what-not-to-wear rule, then go ahead and you are likely, I can't do like crazy shading, that feels too - it doesn't feel age appropriate, then go ahead and stick with dark. Do not stick with one tonal in a light blue or a baby blue. I mean, there is nothing - it's not doing you any favors. It is not helping you look cute, and if anything it's really just dating you completely. So stay away from that; that's pretty easy rule.
And then lastly, the thing that I would say that you be careful about is, three, watch the rise, okay. This kind of goes back to number one. So this is really important on the butt. If you are not a good shopper and you need to bring a friend with you, who can say, you know what, that jean is halfway up to your shoulders then it is not the jeans for you. We do not want you looking like you have long butt. The minute you look like long butt, you have the mom jeans on. It's just not good. There is no place for it. There is no reason for it. And I know ladies who want to be age appropriate, so let's you into something classic and beautiful.
You really want to be dictated more by your body shape as opposed by your age. It's really important that you remember that. And again, it's important that you remember the rise maybe comfortable and you can sit in it, but there a lot of other rises that are comfortable as well, and that you can sit in, and they literally don't have to double up the shirts in the back, okay. So just remember.
