The Best Jeans For Your Body

To figure out which jeans will work for you and help to cut down your shopping time, read on.

Straight cut
Straight-cut jeans typically sit at your natural waist and are slim through the seat and thighs. The fabric should skim your silhouette and the leg should be long, tapering off gradually and slightly at the ankle. This style of jean is classic, and if you have the body to wear them, straight-cut jeans can pretty much be paired with anything.

Flare cut
Also known as boot-cut jeans and originally designed to be worn with cowboy boots, this cut is very flattering for many body types. Typically, flare-cut styles should sit just below your natural waist and should be slightly loose through the leg. From the knee to the ankle, these jeans become slightly wider or “flare” out. A bonus is that these jeans will never go out of style and it’s so easy to dress them up for a date or the office.

Wide leg
Like flared jeans, wide-leg jeans often sit at your natural waist or just below it, but the seat and thighs of these jeans will have a relaxed or quite loose fit. Back pockets may be larger and deeper on this style of jean. Wide-leg jeans usually have a straight, slightly tapered cut from the thigh to the ankle, but they are very loose through the leg so that the shape of your body is not as easily discernible.

Low rise
The defining feature of low-rise jeans is that they sit below your natural waistline, often on the hip bones. Low-rise jeans can be straight cut, slim fit, bootleg or wide leg. It’s best to wear low-rise jeans with a longer shirt, otherwise your midriff will be visible anytime you move your arms — while girls might be able to get away with belly-baring jeans and short T-shirts at the bar, this look is never a good one for men.
