That’s it - jeans look rubbish on me. Skinny make my thighs look huge and my ankles look like a child’s. Boyfriend are too low ans my stomach hangs over. Mom jeans make me look like a farmer. PLEASE there must be other people who can’t wear jeans??!!
Have you tried straight cut? Bit like skinny but not so clingy so they will balance out your legs a bit. I'm also a convert to fitted flares - wasn't sure at first but when I wear them with heels I look like my legs are 5 foot long and slim!
I’m a curvy size 10’and wear skinny jeans . I think I look ok . I’m never going to have slim long legs so just wear what I want !.. do you have a flat stomach ? I can’t see why you wouldn’t look good in jeans tbh .
i cant wear jeans although I got fed up after 7 years of not wearing any and got a couple from Next a few weeks ago. Bootcut, slim and lift, pear shape/thick calves/big thighs here.. but I struggle to find any casual trousers for everyday too. frustrating isn't it.
I think you probably look fine in jeans and a jumper or shirt. The tucked in or extra fitted look is obviously harder to pull off and the fit of the jeans has to be exactly right. I like Debenhams jeggings. Not overly skinny, nice, stretchy and comfortable. Come in a variety of colours too.
I was going to suggest straight. I wear mostly straight and find them a better fit, but I like them long not above the ankle version. Maybe it's how you're styling them? What kind of look do you go for? I have to wear longish tops with mine because I have a bit of a lower tummy and saddles bags! What's the worst aspect about jeans for you?
