Whether its Apple Bottoms or Miss Me‘s , jeans have been trendsetting their way into fashion. You can find all patterns and accents to compliment your rear area , but personally I think I have a harder time finding the right fit that accentuates my best feature lol Well i hope it is. So here are some essential tips and fits that helped me make the jean finding game a lot easier.
Pear Shaped Body- choose a low-rise , flat-front boot cut pant . *buy to fit your hips! Remember, the waist line can be taken in by your b.f.f.(a tailor) so don’t worry if its a size bigger , that does not mean you gained weight , you just got a bigger butt than you thought.
Curvy Body- On the hips make sure your jean has a flat -front with subtle flarred cuffs, only if your proportioned and tallish, if not a straight leg or subtle boot cut is fine. But, make sure the jean is not tapered or flarred.
*please stay away from pleated patterns or ankle tappered pants it doesn’t flatter the body as much as you think.
Boy-shaped Body-skinny or flared jean is fine; recommended *low-waist or high-waist paint is always flattering but don’t meet somewhere in the middle stick to one fit.
*don’t indulge in a very full or baggy pant its not that pretty
Petite Body- depending on your hips, a low-waisted or high-waisted jean can accentuate this shape . If you do try to incorporate a boot cut jean, make sure its subtle and that it hits the middle of your bare heel.
*Beware the wide or cuffed bottoms .It makes us short girls look like we’re drowning in our jeans.
Busty Body- subtle flare and low-waisted jeans are the best look.
*Extremely skinny or full pants makes you look unproportioned so stay far far away! It’s a major No! No!
Blue Jean 101:
- Prepare yourself to try on at least six pairs of jeans , each brand fits and looks different . * Remember brand sizes tend to run 1 to 2 sizes smaller than average.
- Bend over squat and check out your rear in the mirror before you buy.
No matter what body type a subtle, dark,boot-cut jean is the most flattering on all body types!

Bang for your Buck!!!
This is for the girl on the go , who doesn’t have time to do her make-up. I recommend Hard Candy’s moisturizing tint, it takes less than three minutes to apply and is a light weight moisturizer that hydrates your skin while lightly tinting it to make it appear as if you had nothing on. I absolutely love it , because its only $8 dollars and I can apply it fast, especially in the morning when I’m always in a rush.This product is available at Wal Mart Dept Stores.
In the words of Nannette Lepore”Don’t wear a cropped top with low-waisted paints.”
