IT’S IN YOUR JEANS

GET THE ONES THAT FIT YOUR FIG­URE AND YOU’LL NEVER LOOK BACK, THEY CAN BOOST ALL BODY SHAPES BUT THE KEY IS TO MATCH LEG LENGTH, CUT AND STRETCH TO SHOW OFF YOUR CURVES OR KEEP YOU ON THE STRAIGHT AND NAR­ROW

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - WEEKEND - WORDS: SALLY COATES

There are three things in life that once you find your per­fect fit, you never look back and you never let go. A hair­dresser, a me­chanic and the per­fect pair of jeans.

Un­for­tu­nately the path to the per­fect fit is lit­tered with trial and er­ror, so a help­ful hand along the way never goes astray.

Ali Hoot­man, Creative Di­rec­tor for MAVI Jeans Aus­tralia, knows the strug­gle and while she might not be able to help with a hair­dresser or a me­chanic, she has a wealth of knowl­edge for dress­ing in denim.

“One of the big­gest ques­tions we get at MAVI is what is the right jean for my body type?” she says.

“Jeans, un­like any other item in your wardrobe, are some­thing that de­serve a bit of time put into find­ing the right size and shape for you and, once found, this pair of jeans will be­come the most worn and favoured item in your wardrobe.”

Here are a few con­sid­er­a­tions to make, ac­cord­ing to Ali.

GOT THAT HIPPY SHAPE?

“Lucky are those with hips, as jeans are the ul­ti­mate way to ac­cen­tu­ate curves and cre­ate a great sil­hou­ette. High waisted jeans with stretch are per­fect for this body type. Our Alissa su­per high rise jean and Tess high rise waist with skinny an­kle both have high waists and the right amount of stretch to cre­ate this look.”

GOOD THINGS, SMALL PACK­AGE

“It’s all in the de­tails for pe­tite girls who can play around with cropped, em­bel­lished styles and skinny an­kles with zips. Straight leg jeans tend to take over pe­tite frames so should be avoided but a high waisted, cropped skinny an­kle like our Tess style works re­ally well.

“Our Jesy low-rise biker jean is a re­ally good op­tion for pe­tite girls too with its zip skinny an­kle cre­at­ing a great hip to an­kle line.”

LUCKY LEGS 11

“Jeans are made for long-legged girls and many of our key styles come in a 34 inch leg so that the jean fits where it should.

“High waisted, skinny styles like Alissa and our mid-rise waist Alexa come in 34 inch leg lengths. Straight leg jeans also look sen­sa­tional on tall women.”

BE THERE OR BE SQUARE

“A square or sporty physique is re­ally great in a more re­laxed fit like a boyfriend or a slouchy low rise. Bal­anc­ing th­ese styles with a clas­sic tank top for sum­mer and a cropped sweat for win­ter is also a great styling op­tion and re­ally com­pletes the look.

“Our slouchy boyfriend Leona Jean can be rolled at the an­kle and worn low on the hips.”
