PETITE

Are you the one always struggling to reach items at the back of the shelf? Do you fit neatly into economy class plane seats, with no issue? This one is for you.

Petite body types should look for slim cuts: think mid-rise, cropped styles. Flared styles aren’t totally out of the question, just be ready to wear a decent heel to balance the proportions.

CURVY

Love them or loathe them, you have to give the Kardashians some credit for championing curvy butts. Do struggle to find jeans that fit your waist AND your hips? Have you ever wondered how it was possible for your butt to mysteriously knock random items off tables? Is Beyoncé your style guru? Read on…

A good tip for curvy girls to remember is that pocket placement is crucial. Ideally, you don’t want detailing on your behind to be widely spaced- pockets should be close together. Go for a dark wash, and higher waist styles.

TALL

Tall girls are usually pretty damn lucky in the leg department! This is particularly useful when shopping for jeans, as you will never have to suffer the frustration of paying a tailor to lop inches off the hem. Score!

When you are above-average height, you can really rock some 70s denim. We love the look of flared jeans on tall girls- pair this with an off the shoulder top for the ultimate, boho look.

ATHLETIC

For sporty girls, your jeans are probably on high wardrobe rotation. You’re looking for something that is easy to wear, that effectively flatters your gym-honed figure.

Jeans with some stretch are your friend! Athletic body types can also go for mid-rise, straight leg styles, perhaps with a slouched, boyfriend fit.
