Jeans – Problem Solving Style Advice

Jeans – A Wardrobe Essential

No matter what age or shape you are, a flattering, comfortable pair of jeans in your wardrobe is an absolute must -have. If you don’t own a pair that look AND feel great, then read on – I’m looking at the various problems I’ve encountered fitting jeans to my clients (I am a Personal Stylist), and sharing some of my solutions.

The Muffin Top – Style Solution

To prevent tummy spillover, look for a mid-rise style with a wide waistband. Jeans designed for women, rather than teens are usually a better option. I recommend Katies Fashion Ultimate fit jeans. Wearing a top that is looser around the tummy, but fitted at the bust will work, if you currently own a pair of jeans that give you a muffin top.

Plus Size Curves – Style Solution

A straight leg or boot-cut style with some stretch will be both slimming and comfortable. Mid rise is also more comfortable for you. Choose a darker denim, and avoid embellished pockets and ‘whiskers’ across the front.

Flat Bottom – Style Solution

Flat bottomed girls – you make the rockin’ world go ’round! And here’s how to make your bottom look a bit rounder…..  Avoid flat low pockets, instead look for slit pockets or flap pockets. Pockets that sit higher will be more flattering.

Large Hips, Small Waist – Style Solution

Look for stores that cater for women and not teens. Many have jeans with hidden adjustable elastic waistbands, so you get fit in the hips and at the waist too! No more gaps!

Long Legs – Style Solution

Who would think having long legs would ever be a problem? But, it can be hard to find jeans long enough. Cuffing your jeans is right on trend this season, which makes it easier, but you can also buy unhemmed jeans from Jeanswest and hem accordingly.

    • Yes! You may find a low rise jean fits your shape better, or the Katies Ultimate Fit will also probably work well too. The wide waistband with no zip or buttons is a great option, as you’re not adding any bulk. Robyn
