A great pair of jeans can be a girl's best friend — a go-to wardrobe staple that can work just as well with a pair of sneakers for a trip to the grocery store, as a sexy pair of heels for night out on the town. But over time, jeans, like rubber bands, can stretch to the point that they lose their shape and make you look like you're wearing a paper bag. Before you put on your favorite pair for the upteenth time, you should know that there are signs your jeans don't fit as well as they should. The way your jeans fit in the waist, the ankles, and even the knees can make the difference in their overall look.
The next time you slide into your skinnies, take a look in the mirror to see if you spot any of these tell-tale signs that you need to retire your jeans. If you do, give them to your favorite place to donate old clothes, and head straight to the mall. While you may be bummed about parting with your favorite pair of blues, it's definitely a great excuse to go shopping. And a new pair of great-fitting jeans should make anyone's day.
