Whatever your body shape, these tips will help you look great. If in any doubt about your shape, have an image consultation with an image consultant.
Hourglass: Finding jeans that fit on both the waist and the hips can be difficult. The solution is to go for a hipster cut and to finish your look with a fitted top and a belt to emphasise your waist.
Apple: If youhave a rounder figure then higher-rise jeans are best for you. Opting for a straighter cut pair of jeans will show off your slim legs to their best advantage and help to detract from your larger tummy and bust. To minimise your stomach, choose wider waistbands and plunge pockets. Apple shapes should avoid drainpipe styles.
Pear Shaped: If you are pear-shaped, try to choose a leg width that helps to balance out your figure and don’t buy loose-legged jeans since these will only make your bottom half look larger. Boot-cut, low-rise or flared jeans which even out your triangle shape are best for balance.
Long legged: For those of you lucky enough to have long legs, skinny, straight leg or low rise jeans look superb on you as well as wide legged jeans which can look very elegant. To avoid your legs looking too thin, wearing denim with a little texture is ideal since it adds volume. To detract from your height a pair of jeans that stops at your ankle is best when they are paired with flat shoes.
Petite: To give the illusion of extra height and create a sleek silhouette, try to match the colour of your jeans to your top and even shoes. You could also wear high heels and ensure that the hem of your jeans hovers just above the ground. As a general rule, is you have a petite shape then you should go for slim fitting or skinny shaped jeans that are slightly on the long side.
Fuller figure: The worst thing you can do is try to hide your larger shape in baggy jeans and clothes since this will just bulk you up. Generally, the more simple the style the better. Classic boot cut jeans in a dark denim are best for you since they can create a slimming effect. Clean, simple lines without any added extras like detailed pockets are ideal.
Don’t forget, an experienced image consultant can offer you an image consultation to help you make the most of your body shape.
