How to Find the Best Jean Styles for Your Body
By Laura Leiva
Denim jeans come in a multitude of colors and styles – so which one is best for your body type? With this simple guide, find your perfect look to complement any shape.
The rise of the waistband seems to vary by what’s on trend – so here’s how to find a rise that fits your body type. Low rise sits below the naval, while mid-rise hits right around the midsection and is a universally flattering fit for most body types. The classic high-rise is super on trend and highlights curves while also providing a smaller fit for more athletic bodies.
Once you’ve figured out which rise you like best, it’s time to look for the ideal leg style. From casual and looser-fit boyfriend jeans to ultra-skinny, the type of jean you choose varies based on your style! Boyfriend and straight-legged jeans are more laid-back while flare and bootcut balance out a curvy body. Skinny jeans are a perfect complement to looser tops and blouses.
There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to denim wash. It’s all about preference! For a classic look go for a medium wash – it works well for all seasons. Black and dark blue denim look fantastic on all body shapes and go easily from day to night.
