A good pair of jeans can show off your curves and flatten problem areas. And it’s amazing how this wardrobe essential can work with so many looks! Wear with a simple tee and rubber shoes for a rugged day of play; pair with a white shirt, scarf and ballet flats for a casual chic look; or add instant glamour with high heels and a dressy top.
That’s why a good pair of jeans is a woman’s best fashion friend. Here are tips for helping you find the best jeans for your body type.
Jeans for wide hips
Look for jeans with a boot leg. This cut is basically straight with a slight flare in the bottom. It helps balance out wider hips, making your body look more proportional. The hem should fall a little below your ankle. While this cut was originally designed for wearing with boots (as the name implies) you can wear shoes with even a slight heel. Avoid jeans that have a lot of detail on the back pocket, which will draw more attention to your problem area.
Jeans for a petite frame
Most petite women would simply cut the hem of their jeans, but this usually throws off the proportion. Instead, look for jeans that are designed for petite frames.
Avoid baggy jeans, which will overwhelm your figure. Look for slim, pencil cuts or skinny jeans, which will enhance your curves. Darker colors are very stylish and sophisticated and look amazing with heels. If you have a boyish and very straight figure, adding a belt will help create a curvy silhouette.
Jeans for a large behind and thighs
Women who are bottom heavy (with a large behind and thighs) look best in jeans that are low-rise. These are very comfortable and will give enough room in the hip, butt and thigh area. Look for a pair that has a contoured waistband, which can help make you look slimmer. Keep the back pockets very simple, to avoid drawing attention to this area.
Jeans for a large belly
Look for jeans made of polyester or Spandex, which can help hold in the problem area. Avoid wearing belts, which will add bulk. Get one pair with enough length to wear with heels or boots (the extra height can help you look taller, and slimmer) and one in a cropped length to wear with ballet flats and sandals for summer chic.
