Not Only For the Thin – Designer Skinny Jeans Are Made For Every Body Type

It is official. The 80’s have made a comeback. Several seasons ago, skinny jeans took the world by storm and now, it looks like they’re here to stay. So are they really just for skinny people? Absolutely not. Designer skinny jeans are made for every body and by following a few simple guidelines, this look can be flattering on any body type. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

There are basically 3 types of skinny jeans:

  • Cigarette -This style is very similar to skinny jeans. The only difference is leg opening. The leg opening on skinny jeans gets smaller as it nears the ankle, whereas the leg opening on cigarette jeans stay the same from the knee down all the way to the ankle.
  • Straight leg – This classic cut is the most universally flattering style. There is usually no stretch to a straight leg jean, so it is less form fitting than the skinny and cigarette styles. This cut is slightly different from the cigarette jean. The leg opening on this jean stays the same from the thighs down.
  • Skinny – The 3 constituents that make up this style are form fitting, stretchy and ankle hugging. This style delivers the ultimate sprayed on look.

How To Wear Designer Skinny Jeans If…

  • You have large calves – Consider wearing cigarette jeans instead of skinnies. They are wider through the lower leg, which leaves room for your calves. You can additionally hide thick calves by wearing them tucked into boots.
  • You have a belly bulge – Any 3 of the skinny jean styles will work for anyone with tummy issues. Choose a pair that has a fair amount of stretch and a higher rise so they can really hold in your problem area. Pair this with a loose empire waist top and wear heels to elongate your legs and appear slimmer.
  • You have a big butt – Follow the same advice as for tummy issues. There are 2 things you need to keep in mind. One is to make sure the pockets on your jeans are low. They should end somewhere in the area where your butt and thighs meet to create a smaller looking behind. The other thing is your shirt needs to fall to the middle of your butt or longer.
  • You are tall and slim – Specialty cuts are often made in only one length, so it may be challenging for you to find skinny jeans that are long enough. When choosing the right pair of jeans for your body type, make sure they fall at least to your ankle. If they are too short, you can wear boots over them or wear heels with an ankle strap so that it looks intentional.
  • You are short and petite – Your problem is quite similar to those who are tall, since most jeans only come in one length. The upside is you can always get them hemmed. The downside is you’ll lose some of the skinniness at the ankle of you cut off too much. To avoid this issue, it is best to stick to cigarette jeans.

Designer skinny jeans are not reserved only for the runway and tall, gazelle looking super models. When you find a pair that fits and compliments your figure, you can look just as chic and stylish!
