How to Choose Your Perfect Jeans

Jeans for Hourglass Shapes

If you’re a lucky possessor of an hourglass or curvy shape, then you can get with most types of jeans. With a hip to bust ratio of 50/50 and a slim waist, you already have balanced proportions, so, when searching for a pair of jeans look for the ones that keep that balance and fit your style.

Skinny jeans look really great on this type of body shape, as they highlight your balanced proportions and look very flattering. Flared jeans will look great on you. If you are curvier and carry a lot of weight on the hips then choose a pair with an exaggerated flare. If you’re not that curvy choose jeans with a slight flare. Also, remember to choose medium size back pockets, otherwise, you will ruin your look. And lastly, high-rise jeans look more flattering on you, as they will make the waist look slimmer.

Jeans for Rounded Shapes

Those who have rounded or “apple” shapes have a wider middle part. So, to create a balanced look you need to make your waist look slimmer. If you are curvier and want to hide your stomach, then opt for high-rise jeans, they will make your waist look slimmer. If you’re not that curvy, you can choose lower-rise jeans to get a curvy appearance.

Skinny jeans can look good on you when paired with a floaty style top. The best style of jeans for rounded shapes is bootcut jeans. Their wider bottom part will balance out your hips.

Jeans for Triangular Shapes

With more curves around hips than shoulders, it could be hard to balance out the proportions. To create a balanced look you should make your bottom look less heavy. Opt for dark denim with large back pockets, they will make you look slimmer. Try out wider flared and bootcut jeans, they can help you keep your legs in proportion. Always look for stretch denim as it will hug your body better. You can also choose straight jeans, they can also make you look less bulky.

Jeans for Rectangular Shapes

This type of body shape goes straight up and down with long legs and straight hips which are of a similar size as the waist. It may seem hard to find jeans that will look flattering and feminine, but there are plenty of choices for you. Skinnies will look perfect if you choose the ones that look flattering on your hips. You can also choose skinnies with slight flares and tight fit in the above. Avoid baggy flares, they will make your look overwhelming. Boyfriend jeans will also work for you perfectly. What refers to the rise, you can choose both high and low-rise jeans. If you want to show your height, choose high-rise jeans, if you want your legs to look proportional then choose low-rise ones.
