Guide to Jeans in 2018: The Best for Your Body Type

Jeans are a must have and they are never going to go out of style. That’s why everyone should know which type of jeans to have in their closet and how to use them.

Here’s a guide to jeans in 2018, which are right for which occasion, for which outfit, but mostly for which body type, so that you’ll always know which jeans to wear and which ones will enhance your physique.

Skinny Jeans

Tight jeans all the way to the ankle. The fabric usually has a high percentage of elastane that allows to wear it like a second skin. This type of jeans looks great on those with legs on the slender side.

Mom Jeans

The quintessential pair of jeans your mom would wear: high waisted, straight legged that goes a little narrower toward the ankle. These jeans remind us of the ‘80s and ‘90s and are made of real, 100% denim fabric.

They are perfect for those who have a small waist as they emphasize the hips, even of the thin ones, so an advice if your hips are a little wide: wear them anyway, but try wearing heels!

Cropped Jeans

These jeans are cropped at the ankle and are slightly flared at the bottom. They are perfect for tall and slim women who want to make their figure more feminine. These jeans highlight the thighs and shorten the leg, so if the legs aren’t your strength, wearing them might be an issue. But you can always pair them with an oversized shirt or a long coat or vest to make it work.

Boyfriend Jeans

These are the jeans we “stole” from our boyfriend’s closet. The waist goes down, the crotch is lower and the leg is wider and straight all the way down.

These are perfect for those who love playing with different styles.

The boyfriend jeans are a bit risky for the petites because the low crotch tends to make us look shorter and to flatten our b side, so they are also not great for those with little curves. Since these jeans were conceived for men, the best tip is to just wear them with confidence and ease!

Flared Jeans

The flared, or bell bottom jeans, are back to our wardrobe straight from the ‘70s. But today we wear them high waisted, to really elongate the figure, even more if worn with heels or platforms, which are a must for the petites who want to embrace this trend.

These jeans are perfect for those who have big quadriceps!
