BOOTCUT

Originally designed to fit over work boots, bootcut jeans are built a little wider from knee to ankle.. .and they’re back in style. The curve-hugging denim with a moderate flare may conjure up images of ’60s style icons like Jane Birkin or Françoise Hardy, but they’re also associated with the not-so-distant late 90s and early ’00s – as seen on Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow. For Liz Hurley, they are still a way of life. Opt for a pair in a darker rinse for an added slimming effect. Toss on a white button down or a denim shirt in a lighter wash to streamline the whole look.. and cowgirl boots? Why not?! The Western trend is back, too!

GOOD FOR APPLE AND ATHLETIC SHAPES

GOOD FOR APPLE AND ATHLETIC SHAPES

Ideally, your BF denim should fit true to size at the waist and the waist only. Everywhere else should look a size bigger than what you’d normally go for. Don’t be afraid of rips or distressed patches, and don’t forget to cuff those hems.

SKINNY

Jeans that fit snug from waist to ankle.

I’m sure you don’t need to be introduced to this slender denim silhouette because you probably have about three to four pairs in your closet right now. But for new skinny jean converts, or for those looking to find the “perfect pair” for their body type, we’ve got you covered. The key to finding the right ones for you lies in the stretchiness. Denim with a bit of an elastic stretch can be flattering on just about everyone.

GOOD FOR ALL SHAPES

STRAIGHT

Straight-fit jeans are cut in what’s also called our “standard fit”, straight from hip to ankle. Straight leg jeans are exactly what their name suggests. They remain the same width down the entire leg. Most are worn high on the waist, too, which makes them sort of resemble the mom jean. Keep a clean line all the way down by making sure the hems don’t venture past your ankle.

GOOD FOR APPLE, HOUR-GLASS, ATHLETIC SHAPES

SLIM

Jeans that fit between a traditional straight and modern skinny, cut narrow from hip to ankle, but with enough room to move.

GOOD FOR ALL TALL AND LONG SHAPES
