Shopping for jeans is one of those dreaded tasks that Darcy Camden, founder and chief stylist at Styled Seattle, often helps her clients tackle. Heading to a store with dozens upon dozens of denim brands is daunting—who wants to try on a stack of jeans only to peel them off, feeling defeated and leaving empty handed? That’s where Camden and her team of stylists come in.
On February 18, join Styled Seattle at their space, My Style Suite at Westfield Southcenter, from noon to 5, for a complimentary Denim Fit Lab. They’ll help troubleshoot common issues: “I would say most people buy their jeans a little bit too big,” says Camden, “they aren't able to factor in the element of stretch, so it fits, you buy it, but it ends up stretching out.” And in classic Seattle fashion, Camden’s added a bit of tech into the mix. Kirkland-based company, Fitcode, will use their algorithm-powered sizing quiz to help you find your best fit. Meanwhile, local jean genies from Jag will have a vast range of cuts and sizes for you to try on.
“It was really important to me that this event feature regular, petite, and a plus size run all the way up to 24, so there's something for everybody,” says Camden, who in her decade-long career has seen people struggle with this cornerstone of the casual Pacific Northwest wardrobe. But with some many experts under one roof, you may very well find that holy grail of jeans.
Beyond fit, Styled Seattle will provide outfit combinations for any occasion, plus shoe pairings with different cuts of jeans.
