Jeans1. Check your body type

If you’re thin or medium sized, opt for skinny jeans as these will instantly give you a taller appearance. However, if you want to look curvy, then try out low-rise jeans in a cotton and lycra blend. Even extra pockets and embellishments will help you add bulk to your frame.

2. Mind the colour
Stick to dark colours if you want your thighs to appear smaller. They slim down your whole body and makes your legs look thinner. Stay away from gaudy and over-worked jeans.

3. Look for comfort
Comfort is very important as jeans are usually worn for long hours. When you try on a pair, you should be able to comfortably slide the hand between your tummy and the jean. Also, try sitting down and make sure the jeans don’t cut into your midsection.

4. Flat tummy
If you want to flatten your tummy, then try medium to high rise jeans in dark colour. Choose jeans that are not too tight and do not grab too much from the waist side.

5. Hip issues
Those who want to minimise wide hips should go for flare or boot cut jeans. If you’re slim and have small hips, then skinny or even straight cut jeans can go well with your body type.

6. For short legs
If you have short legs, then try out straight leg jeans as they will add inches to the upper portion of your legs and waist. Avoid wearing tapered and flared jeans.

7. Short torso
If you have a short torso, check out the low waist jeans. This will help in elongating the torso and make you appear lean.
