You can look great in jeans. The key is to choose leg openings and back pockets to fit your figure. Here's how:
  • Bootcut leg openings are the most flattering jean legs of all. The slight flare balances out wider hips and fuller thighs.
  • Opt for a darker wash jean for the most slimming look.
  • Five-pocket styling looks best, but you'll want to avoid excessive embellishment on the back pockets if the size of your backside bothers you.
  • The longer the jeans, the longer (and thinner) your legs look. Wear bootcut jeans as long as you possibly can without having them bunch up around your legs. If you can stand them, pair jeans with high heels for a super-flattering look.
