Making the Cut

We’ve entered into a new decade where it seems that anything goes.   You can be a hippie chick one day with your favorite wide leg jeans and edgy the next day wearing your skinny jeans.  How do you know what to choose from and what cut of jean looks best?  We’ve put together a mini go-to style guide to help you figure out what works best as we head into 2012.

Boot-Cut/Flare:  These are an excellent choice for anyone who is a little curvier than most.  They flare out just enough towards the bottom to balance out your hips. They also look great worn with heels, flats and of course, boots.

Best fit for: Women with curvy or full-figures, Men with an average size or husky frame.

Straight Leg:  This type of jean falls straight from the hip to create a balanced look.  Like boot-cut jeans, straight leg jeans look great worn with heels, flats, and boots.

Best fit for:  Women with slightly curvy to full-figures, Men with small to average frames.

Seen on:  Blake Lively, Shia LeBouf


Skinny:  If your style is edgy, punk, or skater, skinny jeans are for you.  Form fitting and body hugging, they are perfect for tucking into boots or wearing with canvas skater shoes.

Best fit for: Women with smaller frames, Men with small to average size frames.

Seen on:  Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson


Wide-Leg: Create a hippie/boho look with wide-leg jeans.  They are great paired with wedge heels or chunky heel shoes for a retro look.  As their name suggests, they flare out wide as they fall down from the hip and sweep the floor at their length.

Best fit for:  Women of small-medium build, Men with small-average frames.

Seen on:  Katie Holmes, Rachel Bilson
