Picking the ideal pair of jeans can be a challenging task. Where do you begin? A good rule of thumb is to find a pair of jeans that suit your specific body shape. For example, triangular and pear-shaped bodies look great in higher rise jeans and wider flairs, while women with hourglass figures rarely go wrong with form-fitting skinny jeans. Think about how you want your jeans to sit around your waist, the type of cut (skinny, flare, boot leg), and whether to opt for a dark or light wash depending on the clothes you want to pair them with.
