So that the most popular thing in the wardrobe does not play a cruel joke on you, we tell you how to choose jeans correctly, taking into account the features of your figure.
Jeans that fit you flawlessly are a necessary element of any wardrobe. And at the same time, every girl’s headache. Where can I get these most perfect jeans and why do new-fangled “slowies” look so good to a blogger friend, but they look ridiculous on us?
The answer is very simple: it’s all about the features of your figure. Moreover, we are not talking about the notorious “apples”, “pears”, “hourglasses”, “rectangles” and “inverted triangles”. This division has long been outdated and has lost its relevance (however, it was not effective). Each shape is a set of specific parameters. Considering them, it is not difficult to find the perfect jeans. Let’s analyze the most common ones.
Often narrow hips come “bundled” with wide shoulders. In this case, in order for the image to look harmonious, it is necessary to balance the top and bottom – in other words, add volume to the hips. You can do this with the help of such jeans models as “bananas” (and their varieties – “slowies”), “boyfriend”, “mom”, “pipes”, straight jeans. Choose an average fit and even slightly lower. You can also “increase” the hips with the help of color – the bottom should be lighter than the top. Avoid the “skinny” and high landing.
If the shoulders, waist and hips are about the same, then medium and high fit will help to make the figure more feminine (low will only emphasize the absence of a waist) and the models “bell-bottoms”, “bananas”, “boyfriend”, straight, “pipes” and even “skinny”.
Also, to visually expand the hips, pay attention to the back pockets. The wider they are apart from each other, the more voluminous your hips will appear (and vice versa).
Here we act from the opposite. We avoid any volume in the lower part (the above models will not work, except for straight ones – they go to almost everyone). Also, “skinny”, “culottes” and a low fit will not work – an additional horizontal in the hip area will visually make them wider. It is recommended to fit slightly above medium or high, as well as dark denim without scuffs, bleaching, patterns and patch pockets. In this case, the simpler the better. As for the models, in addition to the aforementioned straight jeans, flared jeans (preferably with a heel to stretch the image) and other semi-straight style models are also highly likely to fit.
If there is volume in the waist
Here, the most important role is played not even by the model, but by the landing. It is better to choose jeans with a medium fit made of dense material. Suitable models are “boyfriend” and “girlfriend”, flared and straight.
If the legs are shorter than the trunk
You can make your legs longer by using jeans with a high fit, as well as flared, straight, with vertical stripes or arrows.
If the legs are longer than the trunk
Yes, there are girls who consider this a disadvantage. Almost any model will do here, but with one caveat. The landing should be average or slightly understated.
Low height (below 160 cm)
It is better to avoid the “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” models – visually they shorten the silhouette. Flared jeans will help to stretch the image (they should almost completely cover the shoes), straight and “pipes”.
