Best Jeans For Apple Shapes

So you are looking for the best jeans for an apple shape? You have come to the right place. Sometimes it can be tough to find jeans that suit you. It also depends greatly if you are petite or plus-sized too, much like a pear shape. During my work as a stylist, I have come across this on several occasions. Below, I have put together some of the best options of jeans for an apple shape. For further definition, I have divided them up into three sections;

  • General
  • Petite
  • Plus-sized

Jeans For An Apple Shaped Body

Apple shapes tend to have slim legs and a tummy which is larger, or equal to their bust. That means buying jeans, or any other structured trousers can be hard to fit. The general rule is to avoid fuss, no big combat style pockets, loops, straps hanging off or bulky pockets. Keep the style clean and simple. Avoid low rise and instead choose high or mid-rise. You want something that sits above the bottom of your tummy to not fall over the top of the waistband.

If you are a slight apple shape, you can still get away with wearing skinny jeans. However, if your tummy is substantial compared to your legs, I recommend choosing a wide straight leg, a boot cut or even a flare. Always choose jeans for your waist size and not your general top size. Below are general options for apple shapes.

The Best Jeans For Petite Apple Shapes

When you are an apple shape and petite, it is a case of balancing out your legs with your tummy without making you look shorter. Instead of look at flared trousers, choose either straight or bootcut at most. This will balance out your belly but not widen you so much that it makes you look shorter than you are.

The Best Jeans For A Plus Sized Apple Shape

When you are an apple shape and plus-sized, you want to minimize bulk as much as possible. Choose darker shades, and it is worth looking at pull-on elasticated jeans like the ones I have listed last below. This style has less fuss and will create less bulk around your middle that zips and poppers on a standard pair of jeans might add.

So there you have it, the best jeans for apple shapes. Which style do you prefer? In the meantime, learn how to build a capsule wardrobe of clothes you love. Not sure if you are an apple? See my post on the best jeans for pear shapes.

You can not get better for the price, I have looked!'

I joined Michelle's facebook "capsule wardrobe challenge" in June 2020. I loved her approach of starting off with a concept of what colours and styles you were attracted to, followed by what your lifestyle required functionally. It helped me assess my existing wardrobe with a checklist in mind instead of feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. I found the video format and weekly check-ins easy to follow and explained each stage of building a capsule well. She has been quick to answer any queries I have and to offer her professional stylist's opinion with a gentle manner. I am most grateful for Michelle's overarching aim to help her clients "find their happy place". This membership is about being comfortable in your own skin, not about being super fashionable, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me find my confidence again. 😊

There is no doubt in my mind that having a personal stylist online is worth the investment. In fact, at the end of the day I will spend considerably less while looking and feeling so much better. Why? Because I will never again mindlessly spend and spend and spend on clothes that just aren’t right for me and that don’t make me happy. I think we all dream of that wardrobe that makes us happy and confident, but it is so easy to just give up and just wear something. I know I did. And that is just plain crazy because I love clothes! I have always been attracted to styles that I lacked the confidence to try out. Now, with the help and guidance of Michelle, I can finally explore those styles with confidence knowing that whenever I run an item by Michelle, she will give me her honest feedback on whether or not it will fit with my colors and with how I want to look and feel. In short: Michelle’s advice really is priceless. I feel an A-lister in the garments I have purchased since becoming a member! Pssst: One secret, you don’t have to become a minimalist if you don’t want to. Michelle is not about legalistic minalism, she is all about you finding out what works for you and that – along with her very deep knowledge of style – is why I think her membership works for me when in the past nothing else has.
