The skinny jean trend is here to stay and it’s not going anywhere, ladies! Also known as the ‘cigarette-cut’ jeans, the design’s well-loved by women as it can create an illusion of longer and slimmer legs, but that only works when you wear it the right to suit your body type.
Here is a simple guide to wear skinny jeans to flatter you shape. Simply identify your shape, take note and prepare to wow the world!
High-waisted skinny jeans would be the best option if you’d like your legs to look taller. If the length of the jeans goes beyond your ankle, get the hemline shortened to the ankle by a tailor. Scrunching them up can make you look shorter. Pair your skinny jeans with heels or heeled ankle boots.
Tall and Slender
Skinny jeans give slender ladies the great advantage of enhancing your height. We recommend wearing a light-wash denim. But if you don’t want to look abnormally tall, look for a cropped skinnies or just roll them up neatly above your ankles. Team your jeans with a cute pair of embellished flats.
If you’re bottom-heavy, look for pair of skinny jeans with a dark wash as it will keep your upper-body in proportion. The tip to looking good in skinny jeans is to pair it with a slim and long flowing top that reaches mid-tight or right below the waist. It will balance out your curves, while creating a mild slender look.
Top Heavy or Apple-Shaped
If you carry a big bust, you might want to balance it out by drawing attention to your lower body with a pair of colored jeans. A bright pop of color and a belt to cinch the waist slightly can accentuate your natural curves. Also remember to avoid pointy-shoes as it’ll make you look out of proportion!
Plus-sized and Hourglass
There’s been a lot of debate whether curvy women should be wearing skinny jeans at all, but the good news is that you can! It’s simple matter of finding the right fit and learning to flatter all right places. Opt for a dark wash since a darker shade would flatter your curves better. Also choose high-waisted skinnies rather than a pair low-rise jeans as the high-waist should be able to highlight your curve.
