Depending on the cut and material composition, jeans can either make you look stylish, classy, and put together, or frumpy, dated, and sloppy. As with any article of clothing, the key to looking good in a pair of jeans is the fit. Your body type determines the cut of the jean you should wear. Which body type are you? Here are a few guidelines to help you decide:
Now that you have determined your body type, let's talk about the different cuts of jeans, and which ones will look best on your body type:
If you're not sure if a jean is tapered, fold the hem up to the knee. If the hem is narrower than the knee, then it is a tapered jean. After you get a good fit, consider other elements of the jeans such as composition, rise, wash, and embellishments. For a more tailored appearance, choose a trouser jean made of denim and spandex, with a darker wash. The rise of a jean is the space from the crotch to the waist. If you have a round shape, choose a higher rise, but not so high that it sits above the waist. Your natural waist sits at the navel. If you are a pear shape, choose jeans without back pocket flaps, as embellishments in that area will simply add bulk.
