Fashion Friday - Find Your Perfect Jeans Style Part I

  Something most of us wear on a regular basis is the basic jean.  Jeans match with so many different styles of tops, sweaters, coats and they are so comfortable.  However, most of us don't know which style of jeans to wear that best flatters our own body shape.  It can be very hard to find that perfect pair of jeans.  So today I'm posting some choices for different body types.  Since there are a few styles to choose from for each body shape this will be part I of my fashion post.  These jean styles are suggested by

Body Shape:  Hourglass

What to look for:  If you are an hourglass, a classic, wide-legged trouser with a mid-rise and flat front will keep you looking slim in all the right places—but still show off your sexy curves.

Once choice: 7 For All Mankind High Waist Slim Denim Trouser in Atlantic Twilight Wash, $169,

Body Shape: Pear-shaped

What To Look For: Pear-shaped girls with curvier hips should steer clear of anything super-tapered and go for a low-rise flare or trouser style. This creates overall balance, which helps keep your hips looking slim and streamlined.

One choice: Hudson Gwen Wide Leg in Oldmill, $165,

Body Shape:  Plus-sized

What To Look For: If you're plus-sized, a darker-rinse denim is the way to go—just make sure it's either straight-legged (slightly form-fitting) or a trouser style. Both of these looks are slimming.

One choice:  Forever 21 Fab Skinny Jeans (Short), $12.50,

Body Shape:  Tall

What To Look For: When you're tall, you can definitely rock long and lean straight-legged styles—or go retro and try flared, '70s-inspired denim.

One choice:  MiH Jeans New York 5 Pocket Flare Jeans, $214.19,

Body Shape:  Boy Figure

What To Look For: If your body is more straight up and down, opt for a mid-rise jean with a slight boot-cut opening or flare to create a curvier silhouette from top to bottom.

One choice:  7 For All Mankind Skinny Bootcut in Malibu Sands, $189,

Body Shape:  Petite

What To Look For: Petite girls should stick with a slim-cut pair of jeans. Try a cute boot-cut or sexy, cropped skinnies.

Once choice:  ASOS PETITE Exclusive Light Blue Skinny Jean, $55.40,
