Jeans 101: Find your best shape and style
First things first: try on all of your jeans and analyze the fit, the color and the shape of each pair. Let go of the jeans that are ripped, distressed, patched, baggy, frayed, too short or too tight around the middle or hips. Keep your rolled cuffs, trouser and boyfriend styles along with your jeggings. The most fashionable colors for denim range from indigo, gray and black to super brights.

- Straight-leg- This “straight from the knees down” style is classic, can be worn by most and is more forgiving than skinny jeans for those who have curvy hips and fuller calves.
- Bootcut legs- Best overall style for everyone. The flare balances a curvy figure and helps enhance a straighter shape.
- Skinny leg or jegging- This shape can be challenging for a curvy or an athletic shaped gal; best on petite or thin hipped and small legged women. If you have curves and like the look, pair the pant with a long shirt or sweater.
- Wide leg or flares- Best on long legged gals and great camouflage for ladies with heavy thighs and a small waist. Also a fun look for anyone who didn’t live through the 70s.
