Denims are go-to pieces of clothing for every college-going boy. But, choosing a pair of denims can get quite overwhelming with the varied types of washes and fits available nowadays.

Slim & suave
Men having a thinner and slender body frame are said to be ectomorphs. They have slim shoulders, flat stomach and generally seem taller. Straight leg and slim fit are your go-to denim options accompanied with a low-rise waist. Denim on denim looks can never go wrong on you as well as a light-wash pair. Just pair up a distressed denim with your favorite t-shirt, chunky trainers and layered with a bomber jacket, you will be all about effortless and edgy style on the campus!

If you are one of those ‘medium-sized’ guys with an average frame and athletic build, then you are a mesomorph. You have well-defined lean muscles, a v-shaped body because of the wider shoulders and smaller waist and thick calves. For you, slim-fitted styles are a total no-no. Go for straight-leg and boot-cut fits that’ll enhance your features. Dark washes and distressed finish make your body look the best, while small, widely spaced back pockets will turn those heads on campus. Just pair them up with a casual shirt and loafers for long days in college.

Man of muscles
The heavier built guys fall under the endomorph body type. You are strong and naturally gifted with some meat on the bones. The wide leg and classic fit are the denims of choice for you, along with large sized back pockets that sit together. Black can be the obvious color choice for a slimmer effect. Go for a relaxed fit, cropped length and team it up with a plaid shirt layered over a basic V-neck t-shirt and slip-ons to be the trend-setter at college!
From the fit, the wash, the color, to the length, the rise and style; everything must be kept in mind while choosing the right denim for your body type. But there’s no need to fret. Just head over to your nearest Lifestyle store or website, keep these pointers in mind, and show your true blue campus style!
