Jeans should be hanging in everyone’s closet, but it’s imperative to try on several pairs and makes before selecting the best pair for your body type. So be a diva in denim; everyone can optimize their assets with judicious tailoring and the correct silhouette.

Apple: Don’t Hide
People who are apples are the most difficult to dress, but don’t despair, there are plenty of choices available. People who are apples usually tend to have a large chest and a rounded, undefined belly. Boot cut jeans are perfect for apple-shaped people since they streamline the thighs and kick out over the shoe. Wear a heel (not too large ladies!) to help give the impression of longer legs.
Hourglass: Parade Your Curves
The hourglass shape with its balanced proportions is thought of as the ideal female body shape. Boot cut jeans are perfect for your shape as they tone your thighs and show off your curves. A skinny or straight-legged jean is a good option as well as it will really show off those gorgeous curves of yours. Hunt for jeans that fit perfectly near your waistline. This will fit snugly on your hips creating lovely, smooth lines. If you cannot find a jean that fits you around the waist, try to find those that fit you on the legs and hips and make friends with your local tailor to make those last alterations for you.
Pear: Be Proud
This is one of the most common silhouettes amongst women. Ok, so you have wide thighs and your bum is heavier than usual and sometimes it looks a bit bigger than you would want it to be but your shoulders are slim with a perfect cinched in waist that other shapes die to have. Flared jeans are perfect for this shape that kick out from the knee and balances your lower half giving it a toned look. Choose dark colors of dark blue, black or indigo to help streamline your legs. Add a heel to elongate your legs for added drama.
Slender: Very Chic
For women who are slender, women around you admire your shape. Although,you have got an enviable shape, sometimes, the clothes you wear can make you look a little boyish. Boot cut jeans or slightly flared jeans will add volume and will provide your body with added curves. Skinny jeans will look great on you. You can play with a variety of colors. Avoid black or indigo colors, as these will make you even skinnier.
