Find Your Perfect Fit
At Liquid BLUE, we believe EVERYONE can wear and look great in jeans, regardless of body shape, age or personal style. However, some fits and cuts do work better on certain body shapes and the following guide should help you to select the pair of jeans that look fabulous on you!
Are you PEAR shaped?
Well lucky you, showing off your hourglass figure! As a PEAR girl, you generally have a smaller waist with fuller bust, hips and thighs. If you are also Petite, we recommend trying a higher waistband, with a slim bootcut or straight leg jean fit. If you happen to be PEAR and Tall, go for a regular bootcut and also a flare, as this will help to balance the lower half of your body. For both Pear girls, try to select darker denim rinses, and washes that start below the knee.
Are you an APPLE shape?
Hey Cherry Girl, you may be long or short legged, but your slender legs are balanced against a more curvaceous mid section. Finding your perfect fit presents you with a unique challenge to draw attention away from your mid-section and focus on your legs. The best jean for you is a clean front jean (no tucks or exposed buttons) in a soft stretch denim. Also your rise should be below the waist, unless the jean is specifically a high waisted design with a tummy control panel, or a double waist band. You can wear straight, bootcut and flare if the fit is right around your waist and butt.
Do you have a GIRLISH figure?
Of course you do and there is nothing “Boyish” about slim waist, hips and thighs. You can wear almost any style of jean cut, as you already know, from skinny to flare if it’s the right size. So what exactly is your problem area? Well perhaps you would like a little more shape appeal? So most importantly get the right size, not one size up…it will emphasis your modest frame. Make sure you are rocking a mid to low rise waistband, and finally try a pocket detail on the butt to give some interest. Boyfriend cut is a great style if you do not want to wear tight fitting styles, but avoid excess fabric or drop downs in the leg as they will only make you look too small for your clothing.
Are you a LONG LEGGED Lovely?
Great for you! We are jealous. Whether you are slim or full figured, your legs were made for premium denim. However, perhaps you want to de-emphasis your height? So choose a jean with lots of whiskering, wash or pattern to help disguise your length. Make sure if you are exceptionally tall that you purchase a 36” length leg, although most premium brands will work for you at a 34” or 35” inseam. Select a low or mid rise waist and keep your crops to about 2-3” above the ankle so they look the right length…and enjoy wearing your jeans!
The best things come in PETITE size…
Except premium denim cuts! You will most certainly have to get your jeans altered (see our Alterations page) so it’s important that you select a kick at the knee that hits correctly. For this reason, you may find Flare fits just too long, so try a wide bootcut instead. Be careful with crops and choose an ankle skinny fit instead. Also stay away from overly detailed, printed or embellished jeans. Finally, choose a medium to high rise to elongate your length, and don’t be afraid of skinny cuts even if you have curves.
