Ready to choose your perfect jeans?

Jeans for your body shape

Petite body

If you are petite the main obstacle when finding the perfect jean is the length. In order to find the perfect pair of jeans you just have to keep two very important factors in mind…

First, it’s important to choose jeans that are form fitting and high waisted. This way you’ll be able to add inches to your height and elongate and slenderise your figure.

Another thing to be on the lookout for is ankle cropped jeans cut off just above the ankle.

Showing this little bit of skin will create the illusion of longer legs.If you add in some heels you will elongate your figure even more.

On the contrary, if you rather wear flat shoes for your day to day, don’t worry, combine your look with tucked in shirt and voila!

Flared jeans if you are tall

Much like petite women, women who are tall also suffer the hardships of having to find the perfect length for their jeans. In this case, we must pay special attention to the waistline height and the length of the leg. Flared jeans or wide leg trousers are your best bet. The wide bottom cut will compensate your silhouette, creating an hourglass figure. Get a pair in black if you want to sculpt your figure even more. This colour will allow you to dress up your jeans to go to the office and dress down for your day to day life.

Without a doubt a must have to include in your wardrobe!

Cropped cut jeans if you are hourglass body shape

This silhouette usually means that you have a smaller waist and rounder hips that are the same width as your shoulders. This is something that we should keep in mind while choosing our perfect jeans.

The perfect jeans for the hourglass figure is a pair that shows off your waistline giving structure to your figure.Choose trousers with stretch in them, this way the trousers will mold to your figure, enhancing it and not cut into it.

High waist and a cropped cut are what you need. This way you’ll avoid too much material gathering around your ankles ensuring a proportionate and elongated silhouette.

Straight cut jeans for a boyish figure

If curves are not your bodies strong suit, don’t worry! There are many ways to make jeans look perfect on you.If you want to add a little bit shape to your body but still maintain the comfort and casual style, vintage style jeans with a straight cut are perfect for you. A mid-rise(sits just below navel) will adjust to your waist, giving it shape and elevating your posterior. Roll up your jeans a couple of inches to create a flare-like effect that will be even more flattering.

On the other hand, if what you want is to create a more voluptuous silhouette choose jeans that are high waisted.

Straight cut or skinny jeans if you have rounded hips

A triangle silhouette means you have a slimmer top part of the body than the bottom half.

This means that your hips are wider than your shoulders. Women with this sort of body type can choose to enhance or conceal them. For those who want to conceal them, mid rise jeans with a straight cut are your saving grace.

The straight cut will visually conceal the volume in your hips, taking away the attention from this part of your body.

On the other hand, if you want to enhance this part choose some skinny jeans with a high waist are a must have.

White skinny jeans if you have long legs

If your legs are the longest part of your body you have to take advantage! The feared white skinny jeans are perfect if your legs are the longest limbs and will flatter and enhance your figure. If on the contrary, you want to enhance this feature, choose some mid or low rise(sits 2 “below the navel) jeans with a relaxed fit.
