The Jeans Game

Finding the perfect pair of jeans is like gambling in Las Vegas. You never know if you’re going to win, lose or how much it will cost you. The most important step when shopping for jeans is to try them on. I encourage clients to take as many pairs into a dressing room, no matter the size.You may be surprised at what works and what doesn’t for your body type.



Here are a few tips on how to find the best jeans for your body:

If you’re tall cropped styles and jeans that come in extra long silhouettes are the way to go.

If you’re petite cropped cuts in darker washes will elongate your legs.

If you have a short torso styles that sit lower on your waist will give you the appearance of a longer midsection.

If you have a long torso longer inseams and extreme high-rise styles give you a better fit.

If you have a flat butt jeans with larger pockets will enhance your derriere.

If you have a bigger butt high-waist flares, boyfriend styles, and stretchy denim work best.

If you have a tummy high-rise stretch denim will be your best friend. 

If you’re plus size mid to high-rise cuts in darker washes will lengthen your legs giving you streamlined look.
