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;
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.
