There’s no denying that jeans are an iconic anchor to any wardrobe right now and have been for years. It’s been more of a common practice for offices to have casual Fridays at work where jeans are accepted. (Love those days!) But even outside of work, jeans are such a staple in any women’s style regardless of their fashion preference. So how should you know which ones fit your body type the best? We’ve created a simple approach to finding the best fit jeans for you! Check out our Shop Q Casual Jean Guide below.
Find Your Rise First
It’s always a good idea to figure out what rise or cut of jean best complements your body type:
If you have sexy curves and you want to show them off or you have a tall, slender and athletic body type, low-rise jeans are a great option for you. Make sure to get a fit that’s snug against your hips, but a fitted style with stretch is usually the best option the enhance curves or add a bit.
This cut is the most figure-friendly rise out there, meaning it’s essentially comfortable for all body types. Mid-rise jeans are very compatible with really any type of top as well, so these guys are the universal match.
High-rise jeans not only make your legs longer by shortening the torso, but have the magic of giving you the hourglass curves we all love while masking the muffin-top look low-rise jeans can give you. Whether you have an athletic body type to give the illusion of Kim K’s shape or some beautiful curves that are contoured to perfection, high-rise jeans will not only augment but elongate your legs and curves to give you the perfect figure.
Find Your Fit Next
Express your unique personal style while also dressing your body type in the best way. Jeans are meant to be comfortable, so besides knowing your size, it’s important to find the best fit for your body. Here are the main fits so you can decide what fit works best for you:
The initial thought behind boyfriend jeans was to look like you literally stole your boyfriend’s jeans. They are structurally more loose fitting in the legs but can definitely still be dressed up. There are varying fits to boyfriend jeans, so you have options to find the best look for you!
Straight leg jeans are on the more laid-back side of the scale and are a less body conscious version of the skinny jean. If you’re not quite comfortable with skin-tight jeans, trying a straight jean gives you that tighter look without being too revealing.
The bootcut fit is a more subtle wide leg fit with a tighter fit above the knee, but looser silhouette below the knees that keeps the look of a straight leg present. Think of these as the perfect fitting cuff to cover your boots with while still showing off your ass-ets.
Think of the ‘70s when visualizing flare jeans. You can make a statement with this style because of the bell-shaped leg towards the cuff of the jean that really stands out. There are varying degrees of the flared bottom to really take advantage of this playful look.
Skinny jeans are essentially the tightest jeans on the market. They are slimmest at your ankle compared to all other silhouettes to show off every inch of your legs. Most come in the comfortable stretch denim too.
Then Find Your Wash
Great news about finding the perfect shade or wash of denim for your body type, there’s really no wrong or right choice. It’s truly all about your own personal preference and style. Generally speaking for all body types, darker washes are best for going for a dressier look and the lighter washes are great for more casual vibes. Go ahead and try different colors to spice your wardrobe up as well!
