Can you imagine a world without jeans? The world would come to a standstill while it decided what to wear! Denim is such a staple in our wardrobe it would be a real loss if we decided when we reach 50 to hang up our jeans. As a denim expert I can honestly say hand on heart you’re never too old to wear jeans.
At your age you should know better? This isn’t necessarily true when it comes to jeans, as it’s easy to get in a denim rut and wear the same pair due to fear of getting it wrong. Jeans have never been so comfortable as a Lycra mix in denim gives that figure fixing stretch and hold that enhances our figures.
For the pear shape and hourglass body type it is important to give balance to your curves and the best way to do this is with a boot cut or a flare leg jean. Jeans with noticeable stitching on the side seams or with virtual front seam give the illusion of a longer leg. Boot cuts come in all different widths and by trying on different brands you will be able to find the best one for your shape.
Flare leg jeans have come a long way since the 70’s and they are now a hot trend –Fit & Flare. Flared jeans lengthen the leg still balancing out your curves giving a sexy look.
The apple body type can choose from a straight leg, shoe cut, slight boot cut, boot cut, Flare leg to a medium wide leg.
Long & Leggy
Most leg styles look fantastic on a Long & Leggy but if you feel the skinny look isn’t for you then try a pair of wide leg jeans. The look is classic and timeless as this trend goes through to next summer. A Poker straight leg with a high waist is another classic example of dressing for your shape and age
Keep the leg style narrow by going for slim, straight and slightly boot cut depending on your petite curves. If you find a pair of jeans that fit like a glove apart from the length, definitely think about having them altered by a good tailor. If they are a skinny or straight leg you won’t loose any of the shape when altered. If wearing heels with your skinny jeans keep the length long as the excess fabric at the ankle gives the illusion of a longer leg. Look for a front seam blasted in to the wash giving a sharp effect which again elongates the leg.
The good old boot cut is the most flattering of cuts as this will balance out your curves. Wide legs are great for disguising chunkier thighs if you keep the leg length long and the color dark.
