We’ve all experienced the struggle of finding the perfect pair of jeans. And if we’re experienced enough, we’ve learned that certain kinds of jeans fit and flatter us more than others. It is true: whether a particular pair of jeans suits us well depends on both the type of jeans and our body type. Plus, how you choose to style the rest of your outfit can also showcase your figure even more. The most common body types for women are hourglass, apple, pear, and athletic or rectangular. Hourglass shapes have smaller waists and fuller busts and hips. Apple shapes are rounder around the middle and torso. Pear shapes have smaller shoulders and busts with rounder hips. Athletic shapes are less curvy and more linear in build. Read on to learn new ways to style jeans to best fit your body type.
If you have an hourglass shape, meaning a silhouette with a smaller waist and fuller bust and hips, we recommend styling your jeans to show off your waist and curves. One of the best types of jeans to wear for this body type is a pair of high-waisted or high rise jeans. These look great because the waistband sits at the smallest part of your waist can give the illusion of a slimmer middle. Accentuate your waist and curves even more by wearing your high-waisted jeans with a crop top or a shirt stylishly tucked into the jeans.
Other kinds of jeans that look good on hourglass-shaped women are skinny jeans. Skinny jeans help you to show off your curves and shape in a flattering and versatile way. More so than boot-legged or flared jeans, which can detract a little from your nice curves, skinny jeans show the best of your silhouette. Style skinny jeans with a fitted top, such as a turtleneck and an oversized vest with statement boots for an ultra-cool and flattering fall look.
If you have a slim, not so curvy, and linear-shaped body, then let’s style your jeans in a way that accentuates your slimness or offers the illusion of curves. Lucky for you, skinny jeans always look amazing on you. Wear skinny jeans to show off your shape and slim figure. If you happen to be tall, cut off your skinny jeans at the ankle and wear ankle boots to give more dimension to your look. The cut-off ankles will also help to break up your height in a flattering, stylish way. Wear with a comfortable white t-shirt and a leather jacket for a classic laid-back chic fall look.
Wear high-waisted wide-legged jeans with a belt to cinch your waist and give the appearance of some extra curves while also accentuating your waistline. Tuck a blouse into your jeans to give more shape to your bust. Wear with oversized sunglasses and a pair of heels for a down-to-earth yet glam look.
Athletic-shaped bodies also look fantastic in boyfriend jeans. If you are going for a more casual appearance, enjoy the comfort of boyfriend jeans because your body can certainly pull it off. Choose a more fitted cut and wear a ribbed tank-top and a jean jacket for a stylish street-savvy outfit. Or, balance the look with a fitted crop top or blouse.
If you have a pear-shaped figure, you’ll want to be looking to balance the curves of your hips with your jeans. Choose jeans with not-small pockets so that they don’t look disproportional to the rest of the pants. Jean types like boot cuts and flares will help to balance out the hips and keep your legs in proportion with the extra fabric around the calves and ankles.
Wear jeans with longer inseams and heels to elongate your legs and make them look slimmer and your whole figure more streamlined. If you want to wear skinny jeans, choose a pair with some good stretch and don a pair of boots. Tuck your skinny jeans into boots to create a more streamlined shape. Wear a top that will accentuate your waist. For example, tuck a looser-fitting top into the jeans to draw the eye in around the waist and add more dimension to your bust and shoulders.
For more rounded or apple body shapes, wear jeans that feel comfortable around the waist and draw attention to the shape of your legs. Wear a pair of skinny jeans with a loose and flowy oversized top not tucked in. A tunic top is an ideal choice of top to wear over skinny jeans if you have a more rounded figure. This style choice will allow you to feel comfortable while accentuating your length and legs. Wide-legged jeans also look good on apple-shaped bodies. The wider leg from hip to foot will help to visually even out proportions for a more streamlined silhouette. Wear with a comfortable sweater or oversized chunky knit.
There’s a pair of jeans and a way to style them that’s perfect for every body shape. Explore these different kinds of jeans and find the best ways to style them to fit and flatter your figure.
