"There’s no denying that jeans look amazing on curvy figures. While any style will suit, high-rise fits were practically made for you. Why? It’ll accentuate your waist, draw attention to your perfectly positioned curves and will instantly elongate your pins. Cropped, slightly flared styles also work well on you—grazing just on the ankle, it’ll mirror the sultry silhouette created by your hips, creating a balanced look. If kick-flares aren’t your thing, turn your attention to straight-leg or fitted styles instead; they’ll look equally chic."

"Otherwise known as the pear shape. If this is you, you should look to high-rise jeans that will emphasise your small waist and skim over the hips; J Brand’s Maria high-rise jean and Paige Denim’s Hoxton high-rise jean are perfect for this. Should you wish, even out your hips by opt for a straight-leg or perhaps a slightly flared style, like J Brand’s Ruby high-rise jeans which have a very subtle kick-flare at the hem. If you feel like the apple silhouette sums you up more correctly, be sure to accentuate your assets—focus on lengthening the legs and enhancing your perky bum. Paige is great for this with the individual sizing of pockets helps to sculpt and lift. A high-rise pair will hold you in all the right places, while fabrics like Paige’s transcend denim and J Brand’s photoready fabrication will provide the perfect stretch and hold."

"Tall girls, don’t fear, we’ve got the perfect jeans for you. We know it can be a pain finding jeans that fit your long legs (lucky you!) but Paige Denim’s Leggy jeans are perfect as they have a longer inseam of 35.5”. Also opt for the Margot high-rise from Paige which has a 10” rise–ideal if you have a longer torso. If you’re also blessed with a lean figure, create an illusion of a more defined waist and put the emphasis on your hips by wearing a boyfriend or mid-rise jean. Skinny jeans like Paige’s Verdugo transcend or J Brand’s 811 mid-rise jeans will enhance the hips and show off your slim legs, making them a wardrobe must-have for day-to-night styling. A light wash and sanding on the thigh of a jean can also create an illusion of curves, should that be what you wish to achieve."
