Here are a few tips to get the look right:


A dark wash is always more slimming

If you have heavier thighs, look for pants that are cut a little fuller from the hips down but still flare. This will make all the difference.


If your stomach is your problem area, look for jeans that have control built in, such as Yummie Denim.


Make sure your jeans show off your waist, if it is small. Wear your jeans ‘70s-style with a fitted top. If your waist is not your best feature, don’t highlight it with a belt.


Extra height makes flared jeans look great, so try a boot with a heel or a stacked heel sandal.


Wearing jeans too long adds pounds. Don’t puddle denim around your feet.
