Find Your Most Flattering Fit: A Guide For Denim

7.25.2013 WRITTEN BY Maureen Style Guide, T+P Blog Central

Like women, denim comes in all shapes and sizes. Each season brings its own set of cuts, colors and washes. As much as you may love the hottest trend in our beloved blues, you must remember to follow the golden rule of denim: FIT!

Finding your fit can be one of the biggest challenges, which is why I’ve created this guide for you. The goal should always be to find the most flattering on YOU, not the trendiest. So, which are right for you? Read on.

If you’re lucky enough to have profound hips and/or backside, boot-cut is the way to go. This cut works great on both pear and hourglass figures (meaning you’re known for having a small waist, big bust and curvy hips). If you have fuller thighs, a little flare in the leg helps to balance out the body.


The key to skinny jeans is the styling. It’s true! This cut can work on almost any shape and size, so long as you’re striking the right balance with your top. This cut is particularly flattering on athletic figures and most appropriate for apple shapes – show off those skinny gams in all their glory!  Opt for a higher rise to not only be fashion forward but figure flattering!

Have fun in a flare! Take on this trend if you’re tall and thin to not only balance your frame, but also stay ahead of the trend. The flare is also contrarily chic for those with killer curves; this cut is the perfect way to show them off!


Everyone can wear the boyfriend cut. The trick to pulling it off is again, balance. Pair it with a fitted top, or going with a tucked button down; the low slug and ease of the boyfriend jean can (and should) be pulled off by almost any body type!
