Spring, are you there?

Wear your favorite floral and shine bright.

The #1 Secret to Finding Denim That Fits

The stylist secret to finding denim that fits!

Got it From my Grandma, Hanna Lee Style, www.hannaleestyle.com/fromgrandma

If you’re like myself or many of my clients, finding denim that fits can simply be, downright frustrating.

Here’s the #1 secret to always finding that fits…SIZE UP!

Yes, it’s that simple (well, kind of.) 

Fit your hips and thighs first and your waist second.  More often than not, this means you’ll take your denim to a tailor so they can take in an inch or two to fit your waist.  But most importantly, always fit your hips and thighs first.

I hope this very easy but simple trick helps you in finding your new favorite denim,
