Many women struggle with finding the perfect pair of jeans that will compliment their shape, but I have some tips on how to select a pair that will look amazing on your figure. Jeans are a fashion favorite and there are certain styles that look amazing on every shape, while some styles are best for a particular body type. If you use the tips in this post, you are bound to find a style to fit and flatter your body type that will make you appear thinner, taller, and leaner (which are factors that I always consider when purchasing jeans). I hope you find this post helpful as you search for the perfect jeans to rock!

Wide Leg (short + curvy)
These jeans are fitted at the hips, waist, and thighs, flaring out towards the bottom. This style has the power to add length to your body and looks great with a fitted top.
Styling Tip: Make sure the jeans cover your shoes for a polished look.

High Waist & Cropped (Any Shape)
A tall waist really flatters every body type and helps to make you look taller and leaner. Jeans that hit right above the ankle will accentuate any shape, elongate the body, and slim the waist.
Styling Tip: Add a cute cropped jacket to showcase those curves.
Cropped (curvy shape + petite)
Do not mistake this style for capris (thumbs down). They should skim your body without being too tight or loose. A cropped jean that features a 28”-30” inseam can lengthen the torso, adding some inches to your height.
Styling Tip: Pair your ankle jeans with a light sweater or your favorite t-shirt.

Skinny Jeans (small waist + round)
For women with a rounder figure and a smaller waist, skinny jeans hug those curves wonderfully. Find a pair that has great stretch and you will fall in love.
Styling Tip: You can’t go wrong with styling these jeans and you can pair them with a cropped sweater or tank top.
Boyfriend (Full thighs + straight/rectangle shape)
Boyfriend jeans feature a straight cut and a looser fit that doesn’t add extra bulk. These jeans should not fit tightly. This is a great style for curvy hips and slender legs.
Styling Tip: Cuff your hems and showcase your pumps or sandals this summer.
High-waist (tummy Pooch + curvy)
Jeans that are constructed high will shape your waist and slim down your tummy area.
Styling Tip: Be daring and pair them with a form-fitting or oversized crop top.
Bright Skinny (straight + rectangle shape)
Color can accentuate your natural shape and add the illusion of curves. Select a pair that is not too tight or loose in the leg area, so that your legs will not appear thinner.
Styling Tip: Try a little color blocking with your bright skinny.
