Jeans are a staple in every closet no matter the diva, style or personality. But all jeans aren't created equal or the same. Finding the right pair of jeans can be overwhelming, but your Style BFF is here to help. Today I'll share the best jeans for every body type and match them with my top picks from the fabulous My Beautiful Fluff boutique so you'll never have to guess again.
Let's start with body types. There are 5 basic body types: Hourglass, Apple, Licorice (straight), Inverted Triangle and Pear. NOTE: Body types have nothing to do with size. You can be an hourglass at a size 4 or size 44. These body types are referring to the shape and contour of your body. Each body type has specific characteristics that inform you on how how clothes will fit. When it comes to jeans, this is paramount.
Now that we have named the body types, we'll discuss them in detail and pick the best way to accentuate each one.
Your body is synonymous is symmetry. Most of your work is done, so jeans are usually an issue when made a bit boxy. Choose silhouettes that accommodates your fuller hips and thighs.
High waist jeans are an absolute must. Not wearing jeans that define your waist will cause your clothes to bunch it places it shouldn't. Also aim for fuller jeans to keep the balance of your already portioned body intact.If you want to spice it up, try a cropped jean in a darker wash. Pair them with the Curvaceous Curls tee from My Beautiful Fluff and voila!

As an apple body type, you often have to focus on your tummy. I offer a different perspective-- No that the tummy will be there and celebrate everything else. You have great legs, so your show that off. You're slimmer in the hips, so you will actually have an easier time with jeans if you know what to look for.
Aim for a mid rise Jean. The will guarantee that the jeans are high enough to pull over your hips and low enough to not cut deep into your belly and create more bulge. Choose a thicker jean or a skinny jean to play up those beautiful legs. Pair them with the Signature Tank from My Beautiful Fluff and a blazer for effortless chic.
