Dallas Image Coach, Julie Bartlett of Colour IQ, on Jeans, Jeans, a Magical Fit
Jeans are one staple that every woman must have in her closet since they can easily be dressed up or down. Finding the right fit is key as unflattering jeans can take your outfit from being fab to drab. The best way to catch yourself from falling into the drab category is to understand your body shape and choose jeans that will flatter your size and shape.
- For a curvy, hourglass shape, solid colours are a must– all dark or all light. Choosing a faded wash can thicken the legs and distract from the hourglass shape.
Those who are tall and blessed with long legs, should opt for jeans with flares that widen at the knee, which is great for balancing out your look. The main goal is to keep in mind that fitted styles, whether skinny or flared, flatter your height the best. You can also pull off the rolled hemline. Lucky you!
If you are short— or fun-sized– refrain from buying jeans that have rolled hemlines; they will only make you appear shorter. If you are short with no curves, a skinny jean is great on you. It will add curves in all the right places! Of course a classic straight-leg jean paired up with a great pair of high heels can add height and make your legs look longer.
- For the plus-sized ladies, high-waist jeans are great! It will flatten the stomach and pull the look together. Be sure to choose a dark wash, which will make your legs look slimmer. If you are taller, flared legs work great and it will balance out your silhouette.
An athletic figure can pull off jeans with added volume to create curves. Boyfriend jeans are great for creating curves — just make sure they are not too baggy. Fading at the thighs are also great for athletic figures because it adds width, creating the illusion of having a more shapely figure.
Taking a dark wash jean from casual to chic can be as simple as adding a great jacket, statement jewelry, and high heels. No matter what your size or shape, there is a pair of jeans out there that will flatter you. Just keep these tips in mind when on your next shopping excursion and you will surely find the magical fit! If we can help you shop for that perfect jean, call us at 214-223-2200.
