Every season ushers in new denim cuts and silhouettes, and we’re more than inclined to try them out. However, jeans are one of those staples that are truly timeless and versatile, and while we wholeheartedly encourage experimenting with the latest trends, it’s important to know which style complements you most to feel totally confident. Ahead, our guide on choosing the best jeans to flatter your figure.
If you want to minimize your derriere or wide hips, add balance at the bottom with flared legs. A dark wash will also aid in downplaying size.
If you're short, opt for cropped skinny jeans with an unraveled hem. The tight fit, ankle-baring silhouette and lack of an abrupt hem will elongate the legs.
A bootcut jean provides a straight-leg silhouette that minimizes your thighs. We suggest an of-the-moment, medium-wash version with cool side slits at the leg opening.
To keep your legs from looking short, select a mid-rise slim option that'll make your waist appear higher.
If you're limited in the curves department, kick flares will add interest and definition to a straight, boyish figure.
Tummy-conscious? Choose a high-waisted pair to suck everything in. A dark wash will slim down any unwanted bumps.
