Choosing the right pair of jeans for your body shape is not always easy as there is so much choice. Jeans are very personal and we all have our favourites. For me, the most important thing is they must be comfortable, and I have several styles in my wardrobe. Here are my top tips on Jeans – which should I buy for me body shape?

Jeans – Which should I buy for my body shape?

Skinny Jeans

Styled correctly can look good on most body shapes. Skinny jeans look nice with ballet pumps, high sandals and tucked into a lovely pair of boots. This makes them so versatile. Layering is the key, wear with a shirt under a long- knit jumper to make your upper half look longer. Tunics are good or a long line cardigan. To straighten out curvier hips team with a hip skimming blazer. If you are conscious of your tummy, choose a high waist Jean with some built in support to smooth out your troublesome tummy. Choose a stretchy denim for added comfort.

Kick Flair Jeans

These are a favourite of mine and not only are they seriously chic, but they are great for adding shape particularly if you are a tall slim lady like myself.  If you go for a pair that skim the floor and hang over your shoes they can make your legs look longer. If you choose a pair that kick out from the knee they will create an hourglass silhouette particularly if you are big busted.

Boot Cut Jeans

You can never go wrong with a good pair of Boot cut Jeans a wardrobe staple in my mind. These will suit all body shapes and if you get the fit right they complement any figure. If you carry your weight around your middle wearing a boot cut will balance out the look. Choose the thicker denim that won’t lose their shape.

Boyfriend Jeans

I always think of these for the younger girls, but now we are seeing new slimmer legs. These jeans normally come with larger belt loops, which is ideal if you are heavier around the middle as you can add a large belt to create a waist. This shape of jeans is for a more casual look and best teamed with a nice tee. Choose a darker denim to make your legs look thinner.

Capri Pants

These are a summer staple and come in lots of lovely colours they are also a great alternative to denim.

Buying a good pair of jeans is an investment

All the shops on the high street sell jeans so where do we start. Firstly, you need to set some time aside so that you can try several styles and sizes. Selfridges, has its own Denim Studio with an extensive range of designer denim and a denim tailor who offers two- hour alterations across every brand. You are sure to find something that suits you.  If you are petite I would try the shops who have a petite range first which will minimise any alterations and for tall ladies first go to the outlets that stock a longer leg.

What are you looking your jeans to do for you? Do you want them to slim you? If so there are plenty on the market that will offer you built in support that will flatten your tummy in a choice of high waist or low/high rise. Make sure the waistband sits naturally on your waist with no gaping. It’s all about the fit when choosing jeans, always go for a pair with lots of stretch and if they do up to easily go down a size, because they will give when you start wearing them.

It’s all about finding your own personal style and dressing to enhance your body shape and personality. If you would like any advice do get in touch.
