A great pair of jeans is so important to any wardrobe, especially when you're looking for style, fit, and comfort. Finding the right denim for your body type is essential and I have a lucky pair from my favorite brand that will definitely help if you're in the market for some amazing jeans.
The fit that I feel is most flattering on every body type is a good high-waisted, straight-leg jean. It hits perfectly at your waistline, hugs your hips, and shows off an elongated leg. Growing up I always loved a tight fit skinny jean; that was the style. But as I've gotten older, and expanded my horizons, I've learned to play with different types of styles to find what is actually best for me.
One brand of jean, that I would almost call "America's denim", is Levi's. They are my FAVORITE demin. To some, this might be an investment, depending on where you are in life, but I can guarantee you won't regret investing in a pair. What I love most is that their denim is long-lasting and doesn't wear out within a few washes; that's why I feel like I can always depend on them. Another amazing part is that they keep their shape, so you can wear them over and over and over again between washes. My favorite pair that I own are the "Wedgie High-Waisted Jean: Authentically Yours-Medium Wash" which I'll link here. This is my exact pair, which I highly recommend. They actually go with everything, and I find myself gravitating towards them for almost every outfit.
If you haven't noticed they have a cropped fit, which I fell in love with, because I love to show a little ankle and I find it flattering even for those on the shorter side. The ultimate part is that they offer a shorter length for those that fall under 5'3. (TIP: if you want a raw edged look, especially if you want them a little more cropped, you can just cut the bottom yourself, or take it to a tailor, they will do it for you. I recommend washing your jeans to finalize the frayed look.)
The straight-leg fit is great for every body type as it hugs all the right places and elongates the legs (which is something I look for since I fall on the petite side).
I highly recommend that everyone has a pair of high-waisted denim in their closet. They do amazing things for your body. They lift the butt so it always looks perky, they cinch the waist to give you an hourglass look, and depending on your body type, they help keep the tummy supported at all times. For someone who has always had insecurities about her stomach due to past surgeries, putting on a pair of high-waisted jeans always makes me feel more confident. If you are not already on this trend, I suggest you try a pair, you won't regret it!
I hope that you found this helpful and try out a pair yourself and see what all the hype is about! If you have any questions or comments you can always leave me a message below or email me.
