This is Where You Should Buy Your Jeans, According to HC Hofstra Members

Buying denim is hard. There are so many factors to consider: length, fit, denim wash. Shopping for jeans can genuinely be an exhausting experience, especially if you don’t have the body of a Victoria’s Secret model (which, quite frankly, none of us really do.)

Luckily, there are some stores out there that cater to the needs of every body shape, size, etc., and don’t cost a fortune. HC Hofstra members know what it’s like to struggle with denim shopping, so they’re giving you their best tips to save you the anxiety of searching for your perfect denim match. Without further ado, let’s get into the denim diaries.
