For a good few years now shops have been awash with skinny jeans. But thankfully for those with a more curvaceous figure, the skinnies are finally on the way out. It seems there has been a resurgence of classic denim with straight, boyfriend-cut and boot-cut styles more popular. Skinny jeans work well with high boots and ballet pumps, but unless you are very tall or very slender with thin legs, the skinnies were never a flattering choice. Womens designer jeans are now all about the classic denim styles again, so let’s welcome a wider range of jeans to suit every figure.
Jeans for All Shapes
For the pear shapes, which is the most common feminine body shape, boot-cut styles work well for everyone. The fitted thigh and bottom area is balanced by the gently flared leg, working well over boots, wedges and trainers. The boot-cut jean is a softer version of the retro 1970s flared style, which features a stronger flare at the bottom and is more commonly seen with platform boots and funky wedges.
Jeans that are ideal for apple shapes include the famous skinny jeans. Apple-shaped figures carry weight around the middle, which means people with this figure often have thin legs, so skinnies work well. Straight-leg styles are also good for apples, as they flatter most figures and often have a generous waist. Look for stretchy jeans too for more give and a very comfy fit.
Create Extra Curves
For boyish shapes, skinny jeans are the perfect choice for flaunting your slender figure. There are also designs with padding in the bottom area for those looking to boost their natural assets. Boyfriend jeans and extra-wide leg styles, such as those found at http://www.cuba-clothing.com, can work well for slender women, as they are a little looser everywhere and do not cling to smaller frames. Similarly for larger women, wide leg and boyfriend jeans can hide bulges and give a more flowing silhouette.
Finally, consider high-waist styles for a retro vibe. High waists can work well for all figures, especially for those looking for extra support around the middle. They can also give a smarter look, making these ideal for tucking a shirt into. Classic denim styles have been given a makeover with all these new shapes, so enjoy experimenting!
