With the different styles and colors out there, finding the right pair of jeans can be a wee bit difficult. So let's chat about the different styles and what body type they are best for. Here is an overview of body types:
- Apple (aka oval or round)
- Pear (aka triangle)
- Athletic (aka inverted triangle)
- Rectangle (aka straight or banana)
So go back to your pre-pregnancy body and think about what your body type is. Just a quick reminder, that no one body type is best. They are all fabulous!
Skinny Leg - This style is tight at the ankle with a slim leg. Stellar for all body types, so it's a been a staple in closets for years. Some washes do look better on different body types. Pear and hourglass shapes look best in dark wash skinny jeans, while apple and athletic shapes can try lighter washes.
Straight Leg - Think of this style as the more laid back version of the skinny. These are a wee bit wider at the ankle and throughout the leg. If you are a hourglass, apple, or athletic shape, these will look fabulous.
Loose Leg Jeans - These have a variety of widths. So for those who remember the 90s and the JNCO jean era, you will remember how wide these jeans can get. Here, we have a smaller style that's more like a boyfriend jean.
