Spring Jeans

Denim is a neutral, but it still reads into categories of what it does with light. If it reflects it, then it's for T1, and then the amount it absorbs it moves into T2 and T3, the most saturation is for T4, etc......

Spring Type 1 Jeans

Type 1, even with a dark tinted jean (navy is a neutral for T1s), needs white under the color. Springs may also wear jeans in colored tints. Denim is a neutral for T1s. White top stitching adds an element of animation that is most appropriate for T1s. Try to find clean, ungrayed color and match how dark or light it is to the top a bit, so that you don't get a high contrast line at the waist. Usually on the light side.

A 1/4 clear spring might like darker navy-ish jeans, and mid blue.
A 1/2 light spring might like the light blue colour or most blues (except for the very dark blue). I also like my jeans to be all cotton, no stretch, more like 'real' jeans.

Dramatic jeans, like dramatic pants, should be straight and tailored, gently breaking the shoe.

Natural jeans, like natural pants, should be simple and have minimal detail.  Any length is fine, rolled up cuffs to boot leg jeans.  Many styles, loose and casual to more refined, yet  natural materials.

Classic jeans, like classic pants, should be clean, tailored and with minimal detailing. Trouser jeans or straight jeans are good shapes.

Gamine jeans, like gamine pants, should be sharply tailore, with outlined or animated details.  Capri jeans, hitting the top of the ankle.  Skin tight jeans or jeggings.

Romantic jeans, like romantic pants, should showcase your curves, perhaps with skinny jean taper.

Ingenue jeans, like ingenue pants,  should be very shapely, showcasing the ankle.  Cropped and skin tight styles are good.

... but hey, don't listen to me, EXPRESS YOUR TRUTH! Jane
