THE HIGH WAISTED

Say no to low – high-waisted jeans are the only way to go. J Brand and Current/Elliott offer up the gold standard in form-flattering jeans that were born in the 70s. Loved then and worshiped now, they have an ability to accentuate the waist – the narrowest part of a woman’s body – and draw attention away from less-loved lumps. Pro tip: check the profile of the back of your jean’s waistband (above the pockets), otherwise known as the back yoke. For the most flattering look and to add shape, the seam should form a soft ‘V’.

Wear it with: Shirting and contemporary accessories for a thoroughly modern feel.

THE STRAIGHT FIT

The most nonchalant of all: the straight leg. RE/DONE and FRAME lead the pack for the simple, versatile and lasting style – currently coveted by many of those in the fashion know. Cut straight throughout the leg, this design is one of the most flattering for all – especially as it balances out the proportions of a woman’s frame.

Wear it with: Anything from frills and sweaters, to tanks and blouses – anything goes!
