Having trouble finding the right pair of jeans? Women’s jeans can be a complicated matter, and we’ve all spent hours in the fitting rooms trying on pair after pair. Skinny or straight-leg styles? A relaxed boyfriend fit, or a retro-inspired high waist? Selfridges denim experts have put together a series of video guides so that finding your perfect pair is a cinch – whether you’re looking to elongate legs or show off feminine curves.
FLATTER YOUR HIPS:
Blessed with an hourglass figure? Balance out curvy hips by steering clear of jeans with too much detailing or fussy forward-facing seams. Show off a curvy silhouette by trying out a high waisted style, and elongate your legs with a slick boot cut shape.

3: LEE Skylar skinny high-rise jeans £100.00
GET ENDLESS LEGS:
Who doesn’t want endless legs? Show off your pins by choosing full-length straight or skinny jeans. A slim, simple silhouette is key, and go for a classic dark wash for a slick, svelte look. If you’re not supermodel tall, avoid cropped styles – but do make sure that your jeans don’t gather around the ankles either.

6: 7 FOR ALL MANKIND Straight-leg high-rise jeans £170.00
SHOW OFF YOUR CURVES:
Choose pale-toned washes or textured denim to flatter feminine curves, or opt for an eye-catching print if you’re after something a little bolder. Shape-wise, look for a slightly higher yoke and envelope pockets for a bottom-hugging fit – boyfriend or peg leg styles should be your wardrobe staples. ilovejeans.com loves J Brand for their relaxed, easy-to-wear shapes and flattering vintage-inspired fabrics.
