Jeans for Everybody!


Fall is around the corner and that means it's time to pull our jeans out of the closet and start dressing for warmer weather. Many women find picking the perfect pair of jeans a challenge. So how do you determine a good fit for your shape? Here's a few simple tips to help when making that purchase.

Body Type

Athletic (muscular thighs & calves) aka runners, cyclist, etc
Choose a four way stretch fabric with a slim to the knee fit to streamline the upper leg. In addition a wide leg such as boot cut or flare jeans provide a slimming effect on the calf.
  • Roxy Flare Jeans
  • Gap Boot Jeans
  • Levi's 512
Curvy (fit my butt but not my waist or vice versa)
Choose a dark wash to give the body a slimmer look. Choose jeans that have back pockets that are closer together. This makes the booty appear smaller. Look for jeans with crisscross panel to flatten the tummy.
  • NYDJ Modern Boot Cut
  • Ashley Stewart Petite Bootcut
  • Victoria Secret Hipster Bootcut
Boy Body Type
Skinny jeans accentuate the bodies actual features. Choose hemlines that hit just at or above the ankle to elongate the leg, and small pockets place high on the rear to give bottom a lift and a fuller appearance.
  • For All Mankind Skinny Jeans
  • DKNY Skinny Jeans
  • Skinny Jeans by Levi
Apple Shape
Choose a jean that has higher stretch content, this flatters your curves while minimizing the waistline. Faux front pockets reduce bunching in the front.
  • Victoria Secret's Siren Legging Jeans
  • Hello! Skinny Barely Bootcut Jeans
Choose a higher inseam to accomdate a longer torso, a curve waistband to allow for belly bulging,  and strategically placed rear pockets to give the bottom dimension.
  • Long Tall Sally McCarthy bootcut
  • Banana Republic Authentic Wash Bootcut
Choose a mid-rise that rest just between a natural waist and hip bone. Look for vertical fading down the front of the leg to give the appearance of an elongated leg and large rear pockets to give the bottom a smaller appearance.
  • Express Bootcut Stella Regular Fit Jeans
  • Banana Republic Curvy Bootcut Jeans
