What Jeans Work for You?

We all have different body types, so we're not all going to look fabulous in the same styles. Some of us look hot in skinny jeans, while others prefer baggy denims. Find out which jeans look best on you based on your figure.

Pear Shape

Boot-cuts minimize a wide hip and behind.

Boot-cut jeans are flattering on any body type, but they're best for pear shapes because the slightly flared hems minimizes thighs and balances out a wide hip or behind. The best way to wear boot-cuts is with high-heeled boots or stilettos, so leave your flat shoes at home.

Boyish Frame

Skinny jeans give the illusion of curvier hips.

Girls with boyish figures should choose skinny jeans because the slender cut at the calves makes hips look wider and adds curves to a flat behind. Offset skinnies with a voluminous top, and either wear them with flats or tuck them into a pair of slouchy boots.

Short Legs

Trouser jeans have a higher waist.

Get the illusion of long legs with trouser jeans, which has a higher waist that provides a longer vertical line. Elongate your legs even more by stepping out in heels. Remember, the longer the hem, the longer your legs will look. This doesn't mean that your jeans should be dragging, but that the hem should hit below the ankles.

All Shapes

Capris look great on everyone!

Capris look great on everyone. Just keep in mind that they can make your legs look shorter, so petite girls should look for capris that fall just above the knee. These jeans look great with just about any type of shoe, from flip flops to dressy sandals.

Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.
