Is there such a thing as the perfect jean? If you are lucky enough to have a body on which designers base their clothing sizes, then perhaps. My search for the perfect jean ended at Banana Republic. At the suggestion of the sales woman, I tried on their Dark Rinse Boot Cut Jean and it was love at first sight. A darker rinse is always flattering and versatile for day into night wear. The cut and fit around the waist was perfect on my pear shaped-figure. The length was a little long for me, as I donâ€™t live in heels, but since Banana Republic offers free alterations on full-priced purchases, that was quickly remedied. Now they are truly â€˜the perfectâ€™ jean for me. Get your Dark Rinse Boot Cut Jean for $68 at bananarepublic.com.
