Searching for a pair of jeans to flatter your curvy figure? The key to finding your perfect pair is knowing which cuts show off your assets.
Straight leg or skinny jeans can look great on women of any size — not just the skinny girls. They key is finding a pair that fits your body. If you’re in-between sizes, don't buy a pair that fits tightly in the waist. Go up a size and have the waist brought in, if needed. Top with a tunic that ends at the widest part of your hips, and tuck your jeans into a pair of knee-high riding boots. Instant style.
When shopping for a straight leg jean, look for the following:
Our pick: Jag Jeans Malia skinnies have all the style of a slim leg jean... and a little secret. The hidden flat elastic waistband slims and shapes so much better than jeans with bulky buttons and zippers. (We know our weight fluctuates a bit this time of year, so it's nice to have a pair of jeans we know will be comfortable and look great too.)
Trouser jeans are a more tailored cut of jeans that you can even feel good about wearing to the office. A wide-leg trouser cut jean typically has a higher waist, fits snugly through the hips and is cut wide through the legs. If you find a pair you love, consider buying them in two lengths — one to wear with flats and one for outfits with heels.
When shopping for a trouser cut jean, look for the following:
Our Pick: The Jag Jeans Attie Trouser High Rise is made from a cotton/poly/spandex blend that delivers on comfort and style. Angled front pockets, single welt back pockets and a center press crease give you the perfect professional look.
Some say boot cut jeans are hands down the best jeans for women with curves. Boot cut jeans fit slim through the thigh and have a gentle flare from the knee to the hem. Go for a mid rise or high rise waist to flatter your tummy. This style looks great with a longer top and fitted jacket. As the name suggests, they’re perfect for wearing with boots of any style.
When shopping for a boot cut jean, look for the following:
Our pick: Jag Jeans WM Paley Bootcut jeans give you room to move with their cotton/poly/spandex blend. We love the dark denim color, higher waist and back pocket embroidery.
