HOW TO FIND THE PERFECT JEAN FOR YOU
What woman doesn’t want to find the best jean for her body type? It’s one of the most discussed topics in fashion, yet there are still so many misconceptions about how to get it right. In today’s post, I’m going to break it down for you using two brands from the Levi Strauss & Co. family, deNiZEN® (sold at Target) and Signature by Levi Strauss and Co. (sold at Walmart). Seems “fitting” to use the company that made the first ever blue jean in the history of the world!
When it comes to finding the best fit, it all comes down to three styles:
If you’re body is on the tall and slender side, opt for a skinny cut like this deNiZEN Pull On Skinny Jean. Contrary to popular belief, skinny jeans won’t make your legs appear longer than they are, but they will show off your long and lean bod. Now that’s not the worst thing in the world, is it ladies?
As you can see, I’m modeling this look! When it comes to denim, I always choose a bootcut jean like these deNiZEN Essential Stretch Bootcut Jeans. My legs are on the shorter side and my hips are on the wider side, so the combo of a semi-flared jean with a very high platform does the job of making my legs appear longer, while simultaneously giving my hips a slimmer appearance.
For those curvy plus-size ladies out there, it’s all about finding a brand that is specifically designed for your curvy shape. These Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Curvy Bootcut Jeans (learn how to win them below!) are the perfect example of this kind of jean. They’re not too loose and not too tight. They have a good amount of stretch in the denim, and last but not least, they’re high-waisted, which flatter your mid section!
