Jeans are a staple in every woman's wardrobe, but the style you choose can make or break an outfit.  Selecting your denim based on your body shape means you'll be able to step out confidently knowing that they are flattering and fitting in all the right places.

Take a look at the tips below to determine which denim style is your perfect match:

BOOT CUT
A modern classic that is a figure-fixer for most body shapes. 

BEST FOR
Triangles, inverted triangles and full hourglass body shapes.

STYLE WITH
The slimming and leg-lengthening effect of boot cut jeans is enhanced when they're worn with a heel - opt for a wedge or chunky heeled boot if comfort is a priority (we're talking to all you naturals out there!)

SKINNY
Currently the most fashionable take on denim; but are they right for you?

BEST FOR
Petites and lean column body shapes.

STYLE WITH
Wear with ballet flats or ankle boots for an edgy look. Skinnies jeans are most flattering when worn with longer tops, but make sure your top falls either above or below your widest point.

BOYFRIEND/WIDE LEG
A more mannish shape that is currently very fashionable.

BEST FOR
Rectangle and inverted triangle body shapes.

STYLE WITH
Play up the boyish vibes with a pair of funky trainers and a simple top, or offset with feminine details like heels, a fitted top or blazer.


Fabric Focus
Finally; don't forget to consider the weight of your denim. Thicker, heavy denim holds it's shape and is very durable, making it ideal for straight body shapes. If you have a curvier body shape opt for softer, more fluid styles (preferably with lycra or elastane content) that will move with you rather than constrict your figure.
