The Perfect jeans

As a Personal stylist the question I get most asked is ‘Lisa, please can you help me find the perfect pair of jeans?’. The answer is there is a perfect pair/brand of jeans for us all but I do understand finding them is not always that easy!

Jeans this season are not only the safe indigo or stonewashed denim but we are seeing great coloured & patterned jeans.

The flare is a great jean for the Hour glass or Pear body shape, as these body shapes are curvy, they work well with the curves to balance the hip line.

The straight leg jean will also work with, what I call a small hour glass figure as they balance the smaller curves in the bottom half.

The flare and wide leg also works really well for the Top Heavy body shape, they add curve around the hip and leg to create a better balance with the bust line.

The skinny jean still remains a firm favourite and is great for the Slender/Athletic body shape as they emphasise shape and flatter the hips. I know we all love the skinny jean but be careful if worn with a flat shoe if you have a curvy body shape, they will make you look bottom heavy…..not a good look! If you love the skinny and are curvy on your lower body for the Spring/Summer season pop them with a wedge as this will create a bootcut perfect for your body shape. For Autumn/Winter put them with a knee high or ankle boot to again create the boot cut which will rebalance the hip line.

For the Apple body shape who carries more weight around their tummy, opt for a higher waist jean, this will flatten the tummy line and will create a sleek line.

The boot leg jean works for all body shapes so if in doubt opt for this leg style.

lots of love
