4. Boot cut, mid-rise jeans
Skinny jeans continue to dominate the style scene, as do their exact opposite: baggy, wide-leg pants. But, neither of those trends has the most flattering effect. It’s better to keep to a happy medium with boot cut, mid-rise denim that sit at your hips — preferably in a darker wash (see bullet point No. 1). The mid-rise keeps the dreaded muffin top away and the slight flare at the bottom provides a longer, leaner appearance as it makes hips look slimmer. For bonus points, wear the boot cuts with a fitted blazer that nips in at the waist for beautifully balanced proportions that work with your figure rather than against it.
