How To Find The Perfect Jeans For Your Body Type

If you're like me, and millions of other people around the world, then jeans are a staple of your closet.  They've come a long way since they were first created back in 1871, but with so many different styles, rises, and colors available, choosing the perfect pair can quickly become a nightmare.  Ultimately, it's up to you what style of jeans you wear but to find the perfect pair that creates proportion and balance, and flatters your body then follow the guide below.


The hourglass body - full hips and bust that are the same width, and a defined waist.

Bootcut and flared jeans give you a great balanced shape.  If you have slender thighs then you should give a straight leg jean a try.  Try to avoid skinny jeans and anything slouchy like a boyfriend cut as this can make hips seem bigger.


The pear body type - hips, thighs, and derriere take centre stage, and waist is defined.

Flat-fronted jeans with a mid-rise are great option for you, but to create the best silhouette go for bootcut or flares that will create balance with your hips.  Skinny jeans will emphasize your hips, thighs, and butt so avoid at all costs.


The strawberry body type - shoulders are noticeably wider than your hip-line, and little to no waist definition and straight hips.

Bootcut and flared jeans work great for you!  Cargo and combat styles are also a great option as they add volume to your lower body to balance with your shoulders.  Make sure you avoid tapered legs and high waisted jeans as they will make your upper body look wider.


The column body type - balanced hips and shoulders, and little or no waist definition.

If you love a skinny jean then you'll be happy to hear that these are one of the best styles for your body type, along with straight leg jeans.  Be sure to avoid flared jeans as you'll create a very disproportioned silhouette. 


The apple body type - in proportion a tendency to carry weight around mid-section, with little or no waist definition.

Flat-fronted jeans are perfect for you , along with a semi-low rise and bootcut leg.  You can also rock a flared jean as it's perfect to create balance with your body.  Avoid tapered and skinny jeans, and steer clear of high-waisted jeans if you can.


Now that you know how to find that perfect pair of jeans for your body type, all that's left to do is go shopping and buy a pair in every color 👖


Stay stylish!
