Play Up Your Shape: Jeans Edition
CURVACEOUS: EXTRA FLARED
They’re back! The curvy girl’s BFF, hip-huggers, return in a big way, with exaggerated bottoms. Platform sandals add a retro-glam touch – but you can steer clear of a complete fashion flashback by adding a modern top, as does with a pocket button-down.
Who says you can’t wear white? Lighten up this season and reach for the skinnies! Done right with long monochromatic layers and leg-lengthening wedges, warm weather’s hottest neutral can work on curves.
TALL & LEAN: BOYFRIEND
Skinny girls can wear loose jeans too! Avoid looking frumpy in the casually cuffed style by opting for a relaxed slim fit – read: not baggy – polished up with contrasting structured touches, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s shrunken blazer and chunky heels.
TALL & LEAN: SECOND SKIN
Flaunting slender stems in the supertight style is a no-brainer, but Miranda Kerr is a smarty pants in her solid dark skinnies, breaking up the length with eye-catching accents, including a striped top and bright shoes.
PRETTY PETITE: HIGH WAIST
Listen up, little ladies: Add inches to your legs by buttoning up above your belly button. Weary of losing height up top? Jenna Dewan gives the illusion of an equally tall torso by tucking in a flowy blouse.
PRETTY PETITE: ANKLE-CUT SKINNY
Cropped stovepipes can be cute on short gals as long as you give your gams a lift. Show off your best wedges, pumps or platforms as does with her crisscross heels.
FULL & FABULOUS: WIDE LEG
The always-appropriate denim trouser, modeled by Melissa McCarthy in indigo, is the ultimate in full-figure flattery – not to mention an easy style to go from day to night with just the swap of formfitting shirts and statement accessories.
FULL & FABULOUS: SLIM
Dark denim strikes again! This time, Octavia Spencer shows how the complementary wash works well with a slim-leg cut. Not as clinging as the skinny, this trim style creates a lean line that pairs well with a structured blazer and pumps.
