The sliding jeans syndrome does not distinguish between you, me, or any duchess. As you can see, Kate Middleton is trying to keep her jeans up just like everybody else that’s squeezing into girdle-like skinnies! She may be royalty, but among a wardrobe full of designer gowns, and Jackie-O inspired two-pieces, The Duchess Of Cambridge loves her off duty denims as much as the rest of us. Who can blame her? But it seems as much as The Duchess Of Cambridge adores her skinny fit jeans, she seems to be having a little problem with them. They keep falling down.
We’ve spotted Kate pulling up her jeans countless times, and we feel her pain!
Does this sound familiar? Popping on your jeans fresh out of the wash with a snug fit, to find by the end of the day they look like they are two sizes too big, and you are having to constantly hoist them up without no one looking. Nightmare.
So while I am trying to find some kind of explanations and how to avoid this problem – check it out here, and more to come – let me just point out one main factor from my own experience: the tighter the jeans fit, the more they are likely to stretch out when you wear them and therefor start sliding down. For me, the solution was to avoid wearing too super-tight skinnies, and instead going for a pair of jeans in a snug, but not “breathe-not” fit. The jeans stretch out much less like this and I feel more comfortable when I sit down or walk up some steps.
One solution would be adding a belt, but you can also try to keep your jeans up with fun suspenders if you are not a belt person! But the obvious solution would be to wear some boyfriend or even non-clingy straight leg jeans!
Kate here was wearing a pair of Zara jeans, a Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini double-breasted twill blazer, and RUSSEL AND BROMLEY x STUART WEITZMAN Halfnhalf stretch boots.
