The right pair of jeans is the ultimate fashion find, especially as shopping for them can be so tricky. It seems like there are hundreds of styles, shapes and shades of denim to choose from. Use this jean-ius George guide to help:
The perfect pear
Bigger on the bottom – like Beyonce!
We’ve got the perfect pair for the perfect pear – the bootcut. This classic cut of jean is timeless, wearable and super flattering, and will balance out bigger bottoms and thighs beautifully. Bootcut jeans look just as good with trainers and a hoody as they do dressed up with heels, so they’ll definitely earn their keep. A bottom-skimming tunic top is a safe bet if you’re conscious of covering your middle, and will take you from the shops to the bar if you choose a dark wash jean in black or indigo. Plus, if you want extra warmth this winter, a furry gilet will look amazing as an eye-catching, volume-adding finishing touch.
A glamorous hourglass
Curvy chest, bottom and hips with a tiny waist – the Holly Willoughby!
Lucky you – you’ve got curves in all the right places! Now why not make the most of them in George Wonderfit jeans? The high-waisted skinnies will keep those gorgeous curves under control and accentuate a small middle. Wear with a bodysuit or tucked in vest to show them off in style. An unbuttoned shirt, cardigan or jacket finishes a casual outfit and adds a warm layer, while wrap tops are a flattering evening choice to showcase those assets.
The upside down triangle
Wider shoulders than hips, generous chest and slim legs – the Jennifer Aniston!
Balance out athletic broad shoulders with a funky flare. Choose light denims with a fitted shirt or jumper for daytime, and dark denim with a form-fitting top for evening. A v-neck or scoop neck is most flattering for those blessed with an ample chest. Flares look great with a stack or block heel, and are the perfect jean for wearing over ankle boots in winter.
Long and lean
Slim all over with amazing height – the Gwyneth Paltrow!
Make the most of long legs in a perfect pair of skinnies. The skinny jean has become a style staple in every wardrobe, and is a dream for both daytime and dressing up at night. Flats look great with skinny jeans, especially cropped styles (brogues are bang on-trend), but don’t be scared to rock the skyscraper heels like a supermodel if the mood takes you. A gorgeous floaty blouse is the perfect partner for skinny jeans, while a belted cardigan or coat will add curves.
Neat and petite
Little all over – the Kylie!
If you’ve got perfect pocket-sized proportions then a skinny or straight leg jean is the best leg-lengthener. Keep tops, sweaters and cardigans to the waist so they don’t swamp you, and choose cropped jackets for a neat, fitted look. A heeled boot will go great over a slim-legged jean, and patterns, prints and embellishments on top will draw the eye upwards. Better start looking at those funky Christmas jumpers then!
Post baby bump
Generous curves all over – the Coleen Rooney!
Curvaceous beauties will feel more comfortable in a jean with bit of stretch in it. Jeggings are an easy wardrobe staple that can be worn with just about anything – just add longer length jumpers or jumper dresses and boots to make cute winter outfits. We also have jeans with elasticated waistbands at George, plus on-trend high-waisted jeans for a ‘50s pin-up look. And for a touch of cool London street style, why not throw on a fabulous faux fur this winter? We’ve seen them everywhere, from catwalks and celebs to the streets of our trendiest UK cities, and we’re sure they’ll look fur-tastic on you!
Whatever your body type, we’ve got gorgeous jeans for you at George. And as all women know, the right pair of jeans can take you anywhere!
