Question: I want to buy a new pair of jeans and I need your help.  I love skinny jeans, are they still trendy?  Do you think they flatter my body shape, the pear?  And if not, what are the best jean styles for my body type?  Thanks,   H.M., 22


Answer: Thanks for your Q.  Boy, there is a lot of ground to cover on this extremely important question!  We’ll go in order and in points, but there is something we’d like to say first.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Everybody shape has its appeal.  There is no perfect body and not everyone has the same taste.  So no matter what your shape, be confident and wear appropriate clothing to flatter your shape, and trust us, you’ll look beautiful.

Now back to your questions…

1.  Skinny jeans have become one of the basic jean cuts, in my opinion, like the boot-cut and the straight leg etc.

2.  When dressing think of proportions.  Skinny’s can be worn by most body shapes, if worn correctly. If you have wide hips and narrow shoulders, the pear shape, make sure you accentuate the top part of your body.

3.  A good pair of boot-cut jeans are the most flattering for all body shapes, followed by the straight-leg and skinny’s.  Stay away from boyfriend jeans!
