My jeans shopping list has just got that bit better, feel confident with my top 10 slimming jeans and tricks on how to wear them.
Belt It – Cheat an hourglass shape by adding an eye catching belt that defines your waist.
A flattering flare – If your curvier on the bottom and hips, then always choose a flare that goes out from the hip rather than the knee. The less cling the better when it comes to looking and feeling slim.
Cheat your height – Firstly forget the myth that a cropped culotte or jeans makes you look shorter. Just add a heel with a pointed toe and your legs will look longer. Add a neutral shoe or heel for added length to your legs! Try the trendier style with a little toe cleavage on show and have a colour pop varnish so it draws attention downwards.
Higher Waists – Create a smooth finish around your tum, and tuck in those muffin tops that we all hate! Great brands for this are Per Una, J Brand, White Stuff or Sandro.
The Bottom Line – Pocket placement is key, make sure they’re large and sit perfectly in the centre.
Cool Cover Up – Not confident enough for a full tuck, meet in the middle with a stylish half in half out shirt. Ideal for disguising a rounder middle and gives you a cool on trend look.
Keep it Dark – A deep shade will always be more slimming, the darker the denim the thinner you’ll feel. They will naturally elongate your legs too, especially with a high boot or heel.
Faded Styles – Darker edges will contour your legs, making them look more streamlined without even trying. Great brands for this are Maison De Nimes @ House of Frazer, For all Mankind and Nine by Savannah @ Debenhams.
Be Bold – If you want to draw attention to slim legs, pick a pair of statement jeans with decadent embellishment. Pearls or jewels will grab everyone’s attention.
Finally, Yes you can wear denim in the evening… A longer line blazer or duster coat will cover those tricky bits. Or try a kimono jacket, work it over black jeans and as a high as you dare heel for ultra glamour.
