If there’s one piece of clothing that is a versatile must-buy, it’s jeans. No matter what shape you are, or what your personal style is, a pair of jeans would be a fabulous addition to your wardrobe. With so many different cuts available though, choosing a pair of jeans that would suit can be a bit of a minefield. Here’s a quick guide to help you through the decision-making process; the jeans from George cover most of these cuts too, so if you do want to treat yourself to a new pair or two, you can do so, affordably.

As the name suggests, these jeans are designed to be straight, all the way down, and, teamed with right top, can be a more formal equivalent to most other jeans on the market. Straight legged jeans would be the ideal choice for shorter ladies, because they elongate the leg and make you look taller.

Boot Cut
As one of the most popular cuts of jean, bootcut jeans have risen in popularity since the 1990s, and are designed to fit over boots with an added flare (albeit a slight one). They can be worn by anyone, regardless of shape, and can be matched with casual, or dressier, tops to create a look for most occasions.

Skinny jeans have been around for decades, but have certainly made a comeback over recent years. While they used to be predominantly flaunted by rock stars and their fans, nowadays, they’re a popular choice for everyone. Skinny jeans hug the legs and can look amazing with heels, boots and flats. Whether you want to wear them with a fancy top for a night out, or dress them down with a T shirt for a casual daytime look, you can.
You may think that only slim people would suit a skinny jean, but you’d be wrong. Skinny jeans are often made with a little Lycra added, giving them an extra stretch which will allow all shapes and sizes to wear them. Wear with a longer tunic top if you’re a larger shape, but if you have the legs to get away with them, super skinny jeans would be the way to go.

The boyfriend jean offers a more comfortable, baggier fit which is looser around the leg, while gradually tapering towards the ankle. They’re perfect for casual days – tuck tops in to make the jeans pop, rather than wearing longer tunics that would make you look boxy and short. The boyfriend jeans suit most figure shapes, although they could make shorter women look even shorter.

Wide Leg
These jeans have a looser fit around the leg, and are often finished with a slight flare. While they won’t be like the 1970s bell bottoms, they would look fabulous on taller, slimmer figures, elongating the leg. Wear with a tucked in blouse or cami top, and a pair of heels, for an effortless look.
See? Jeans are available in so many different cuts and styles that you’re almost guaranteed of finding a pair that will suit your figure and personal preference. Have a look at the various options available next time you’re in the clothing section.

I am awful at picking jeans, I always just stick with classic skinny jeans although I'd love some more interesting styles :)
