A stylish and well-fitting pair of jeans is the foundation to any fashion-forward wardrobe. Dressed up with a slinky top and heels, or dressed down with flats and an over-sized sweater, the ideal pair of denim should be versatile, flattering, and oh so sexy, no matter the accessories.
Lately, multiple styles of figure-flattering denim have caught our eye, from traditional cuts, like flares, to newer styles and textures, like coated jeans.
Whether you prefer your denim traditional or a bit daring, we hand-picked the best denim of the moment, not only according to current styles, but also by body type. Knowing which to don will only enhance your figure and flatter your shape, all while acting as a your go-to pair of jeans for any and all occasions.
Take a peek and see if you can’t find a pair or two to rock on the weekends, at the office, or during a night on the town. From high-waisted denim that draws attention to your legs or trouser jeans to slim hips, check out our best picks of denim for any and all body types:
Straight leg: Straight leg jeans are perfect for the woman who prefers a slim fit that’s not quite skinny and not quite flared. The cut also flatters those with wide hips and thighs, since it balances out your fuller half without the jeans tapering to your leg. In addition, those who have a slim frame could opt for the straight leg fit and won’t feel engulfed by a wide fit or self-conscious with a skinny cut.
Trouser jeans: Trouser jeans flatter just about every figure and are a great alternative to over-the-top wide-leg styles. They perfectly balance work-appropriate bottoms with a touch of casual-chic. Those figures that are curvy all over, or those with wide hips and thighs will find this cut adds structure and balances out your bottom half.
Coated jeans: Coated jeans are the latest trend to hit denim and offer an interesting spin on classic textures. Those with a slim figure, or even those with a boyish figure, will find these jeans fun to wear, since most styles are cut similar to skinny jeans. Pair them with a neutral top or something basic, since their eye-catching texture will do all the talking.
Flare: Flares aren’t going anywhere and still offer that easy 70s vibe. Additionally, flares flatter a myriad of figures, including boyish figures, since they add some curve to a relatively straight frame. Pair flares with a flowy top for a boho feel, or opt for a button down to stay current and chic.
High-rise: High-rise jeans are all the rage, but they can be hard to pull off if you have wider hips and thighs or are curvy all over. This cut is best for those with a slim figure or a boyish figure, since they accentuate your hips and add a little curve to your derrière.
