It always feels good to go shopping for new clothes. At least until you start trying the clothes on. It may seem as though everything looks good until you get it on your body, especially when it comes to jeans. You may not realize it, but there are really only four main styles of jeans out there–not including the “mom jean,” which isn’t good for anyone. It is much easier to find the right pair of jeans if you know what type of figure you have. Are you an hourglass? Are you petite? Either way, there is a pair of jeans out there made just for you.
A petite woman is someone who is 5’4” or shorter. If you’re petite, you should try straight leg jeans. These work well for most petite women because they make legs look longer and leaner than they really are. If you are extra curvy in the hip, you may want to try something more like a trouser denim. It will be much more flattering to your figure.
When searching for the right jeans for your body, there are a few things that you are going to want to do. Don’t try to hide in baggy jeans–this will just end up making you look bigger than you are. You should stick to jeans in darker denims and try to avoid fading as well. Darker denim will give you a slimmer look, while fading will most likely draw attention to unwanted areas. A boot cut or even trouser jean will almost always be the best style for you.
Tall and Slim
You have lucked out if you are tall and slim. It is less of a challenge for you when it comes to finding the right fit for your body. You could wear just about any type of jean you want, but a skinny jean would look fantastic on your body shape.
If your top and bottom half are equally slim, but your midsection is wide, you have an apple shape. One thing that you should try is looking for a jean with a waistband that hits just below your belly button. This will help to balance things out a little and not show off your belly too much. When it comes to jean style, try something along the lines of a boot cut or a flair to help balance out your top and bottom half.
Having a small waist and a larger bust line and hips classifies you as an hourglass figure. What you will want to look for is a jean that can balance out your curves. Your best bet will be to find a boot cut or flair leg jean.
Overall, there are three things every woman should keep in mind when shopping for jeans. The first is balance–no matter what your body shape is you want to try and find some sort of balance in your bust, hips and waist. Secondly, if you don’t like it, don’t draw attention to it. For example, if you don’t want people to look at your butt or thighs, don’t buy jeans with rhinestones or a faded section right in that spot. Go for a clean dark wash and things will be just fine. Thirdly, keep in mind that pockets can make everyone’s life complicated. They either look funny on your butt or draw too much attention. Keep in mind that a smaller pocket accentuates a smaller bottom and bigger pockets help to hide a larger one.
