Jeans are an essential part of any wardrobe, whether you prefer a casual rock and roll look or a more formal style. Our definitive guide to fit, wash and rise will help you find the right style for you.

We’ve seen it all over the years: high rise, lowrise, and everything in-between. We love following trends but it is a good idea not to be too obsessed with them. Instead, figure out which rise suits your body best and then go from there.

  • Low-Rise

Low-rise jeans are great for showing off your curves. To avoid the woeful waist-gap, make sure that they fit comfortably at your hips. A low rise is also suitable for those with athletic bodies. The jeans will hang lower if you don’t have the curves in your hips so choose a style that has stretch and is fitted.

  • Mid-Rise

This is the most figure-friendly of all the rises. This style is comfortable for everyone and can be worn by all body types. They can be worn with almost any length top, making them an excellent choice for everyone.

  • High-Rise

Although this fit is sometimes referred to as “retro”, it is actually classic. This fit is great for those with smaller waists and athletic bodies. High-rise jeans with stretch are great for hourglass figures. This style is great for cropped tops or tuck-ins.

Fit is a great way for you to express your individual style, whether it’s classic or trendy. We love mixing it up and there is no single answer.
