The Skinny on Denim: How to Find the Most Flattering Styles

The trick to striking denim gold? Knowing your body type and the styles that flatter it. So before your next shopping trip (11AM is rapidly approaching!), check out the jean guide below.

Style: Boot Cut
Great For: Curvy types; these jeans minimize hips and create an even silhouette from top to bottom.
Wear With: A laid-back tee or a going-out blouse – the great thing about this cut is its ability to be dressed down or dressed up.

Style: Ankle-Length
Great For: Petite types; this length makes tailoring a thing of the past for those with shorter legs.
Wear With: A killer pair of heels – the cropped cut really lets you show them off.

Style: Whiskered
Great For: Athletic types; gathering at the upper thighs (pockets and zippers work, too) will create a curvier silhouette.
Wear With: A thick belt that really cinches the waist for that hourglass shape.

Our AG Jeans Boutique opens Friday, July 27, at 11AM ET.
