Quick Tips: Denim Guide Wash your darkest denim inside out to preserve the color of the wash. Give your skinny jeans the perfect fit by continually wearing them without washing them. When buying stretch jeans, size down because they will stretch a full size. To give your legs a long lean look, hem your straight jeans so that they just graze the floor.
