Jeans Your Body Will Look Great In

Finding the right pair of jeans is always a struggle.  Many women suffer with ill-fitting jeans because they are not sure which styles look best on them.  Jeans for women should complement the curves and shapes that define a woman’s body.  Since many of us live much of our lives in denim, it’s essential to own a pair that you absolutely love.

You want fit, fashion and function without paying a fortune!

Consider these three elements to help you narrow the search and reduce your shopping frustration:

Jeans Your Body Will Look Great In

1. Fit to Flatter

These two styles are classy, wear well with a variety of shoe styles and complement women’s body types (Not sure of yours? Click here).

Bootcut Jeans:

Hourglass: Slim-fit and boot-cut jeans in dark denim will slim and elongate your legs.
Rectangle: Choose boot-cut or flare trousers that give shape and style. Back pocket detailing can add shape to the bottom.
Triangle: Boot-cut or slightly flared dark wash jeans and darker trousers will help to visually slim the hips.
Inverted Triangle: Wear slightly flared or boot-cut trousers and jeans, adding a belt to emphasize the hip.

Trouser Jeans:

Triangle: Stick to dark washes that de-emphasize a larger hip or thigh. The wide leg width of this cut will slim your hips and thighs because it falls straight down from the widest part of the hip.
Rectangle: Wear a pair with pocket detail to create added curves to your shape.
Diamond: Jeans with legs that fall straight from the widest part of your hip in a dark denim will minimize your hips. Keep the pockets simple.

2. Color

Body shapes with more weight on the bottom half of the body should stick with medium to dark denim washes.  Those with more weight on the top half of the body can wear lighter hues like gray, white or brights, as well as bold prints!

3. Technology

Great jeans are made with great technology.  The cut, fabric and placement of paneling in a pair of jeans all work together to help flatter your figure.  Choose brands that invest time into creating slimming jeans with smart technology.

NYDJ Jeans, like those shown above, are designed with a Lift Tuck Technology that allows for a slimming fit, designed to help you look one size smaller.  I adore my NYDJ jeans! They don’t gap at the waist as they fall slightly above the natural waist for a fit that complements a woman’s body. Higher waistlines are not only practical, they’re slimming! They keep your backside covered and eliminate the risk of muffin top! If you are still shopping jean brands that work for your teenage daughter’s body, it’s time to step up your game and shop jeans designed for a woman’s shape!

Instead of spending money on a variety of jean styles, stick to what works for your body type.  You’ll find that you’ll enjoy wearing them more frequently because you love how they fit!

Love, Tammy
