One of most universally flattering jean styles is the straight leg jeans cut. This fitted at the thigh, but cut straight from below the knee, style creates a long and slim silhouette on any woman, regardless of shape. They have on average a 14-inch leg opening that creates a nice balance to your curves and also fits very nicely over a pair of heels.
Both curvy and straight figured women should have at least one pair of this style of jeans in their closet.
They compliments just about every shape and the straight cut below the knee creates balance with the hip and has a narrowing effect.
Unlike flare jean styles, which can make you appear shorter because of the width, the narrowness of the leg makes you appear longer and leaner.
And, unlike the very narrow skinny leg jean styles, they don't cling to your ankles making your hips appear very large.
Instead, your leg appears sleek and the difference in the width of your hip and ankle is minimized, giving you a great silhouette.They are especially sexy when worn with heels, but they can be paired with flats for a more relaxed look, too. Just about any top will do because of the flattering cut, however stick to the general rules about your body shape.
Always seek balance and look for a rise that fits your torso—shorter torso= lower rise, longer torso= higher rise, mid-rise for overall tummy control.
