Style Guide: Picking Denim That Works for You - as part of the Women's Style series by GeoBeats. When shopping for denim, the number one place you want to look is the back. Most people look at the front, we look at the side, make sure nothing is hanging out, but we are not spending a lot of time back here. This is where you need to look. So make sure you have got a three-way mirror and you have got a good view of what is going on back here. This is a classic five pocket jean, which means you have got the two pockets on the front plus a coin pocket on the right side and then your two pockets back here. You want to make sure the pocket size is no, just a little bit smaller or maybe a little bit bigger, about the size of your hand, not grossly out of proportion from this. Because, the pocket size, if it is a tiny little pocket and you have got some junk in the trunk, your butt is going to look that much bigger. If it is this huge pocket and you are very small back here or very flat, it is just going to make it look worse, and you have pound cake butt. So what we want to make sure we are doing with the pocket placement, if they are too high, any volume sitting down here is going to feel like you have got that saggy mom butt. If they are too far down here, it is going to look like your butt is coming out the middle of your back. Same thing with the sides. The more these pockets move out this direction, the larger this proportion becomes, and that is going to give you more volume. That can be good and that can be bad. Contrastly, pockets that are too far in, we start to get a larger a volume of space over here, and we do not want to look too hippy. So, on Adrianne here, we have got good pocket placement. We want it to be just about right here where it is cupping the bottom of your butt, where really starting to give some definition. And you want to make sure we have a little bit of this inverted heart shape right here. Not so tight that it looks like your butt is eating your pants, but we want to still see some shape. If I can grab fabric here without even pulling, they are too big. So you want to make sure you have always got this. So as long as you can keep these things in mind, inverted heart shape, pocket size and pocket placement, you are going to be successful in your denim shopping, every time.
