It can be challenging to find jeans that best fit your body type. What am I saying? It can be difficult to find jeans that you even like! That is why my team and I have decided to help you guys out by describing our body type, our preferred jeans, and why. Hopefully this helps you guys find the best jeans for you.Aimee:
Body Type: Slim
Preferred Style: Straight Leg Jeans, Slightly Cropped
Why: I tend to buy high-waisted, straight leg jeans that are slightly cropped because they are flattering for my frame. They are super comfortable and go with everything meaning I can dress them up and down depending on where I am going. I like to add embellished pumps, or pointed toe flats, for a dressed up look while for casual I grab my sneakers.
My Picks: Frame High Rise Distressed Jeans, Rachel Comey Straight Leg Jeans, GRLFRND Distressed Jeans
Body Type: Wide Hip Area
Preferred Style: High Waisted, Wide Leg
Why: I like it high waisted because it lengthens my legs since they are shorter than my torso. I gravitate towards wide-leg silhouettes because when the leg is wider, there is not as much of an emphasis on my hips. Wide legged jeans just balance it all out and look good with my Golden Goose sneakers.
My Picks: Reformation Fawcett Jeans, Urban Outfitters Cropped Denim Culotte Jean, Mango Vintage Relaxed Jean
Body Type: Slim, Narrow Hips
Preferred Style: Straight, High Rise Jeans
Why: I have very narrow hips and long legs, so I tend to go for high rise jeans for a more defined waist and straight leg because they’re comfier. Also straight leg looks effortless and very Jane Birkin (my style icon). I usually tuck in a t-shirt and throw on some flats for a casual work look.
My Picks: Reformation Julia Cigarette Jeans, GRLFRND Helena Jeans, Reformation Roper Jeans
Body Type: Petite
Preferred Style: Distressed Jeans, Cropped
Why: To my entire look casual cool, I go for distressed denim. It’s a breezy, signature LA look, that is one of my staples. Since I am short in height, I also go for cropped denim. That way the length is perfect. For shoes, I stick with some classic black boots or Nike sneakers.
My Picks: Levi’s Black Wedgie Jeans, GRLFRND Distressed Jeans, H&M Distressed Boyfriend Jeans
