3 Tips for Choosing Jeans for Narrow Hips

Finding the perfect pair of jeans is all about what you feel the most confident and comfortable in. To get you started, we’ve pulled together these 3 tips for finding jeans if you have narrow hips.

  1. Opt for high-rise jeans. If you have narrow hips, a high-waisted pair of jeans will accentuate your figure by drawing the eye to your natural waist (rather than low-rise jeans that will stop right at your hips). 
  2. Try flare. Flare jeans will balance out your narrow hips and accentuate your curves. Plus, not only are they flattering, they’re fun! Flared-leg jeans add a little excitement (and retro vibe!) to any outfit.
  3. Highlight your favorite features. Narrow hips don’t have to define the way you dress (nor does any feature!), but it is fun to play up something you love. If you want to show off your butt, wear a pair of jeans with high back pockets. To accentuate long legs, try a pair of high-waisted bootcut jeans. Ultimately, fashion is all about wearing what makes you feel great! So try different silhouettes on until you find the perfect fit.

These high-rise flare jeans will elongate your frame and cinch your natural waistline: a win-win, right? They also have a long inseam (34.5”) so they’re a great option if you’re tall or have long legs.

These jeans are about to be your new best friend. They pull-on (read: no buttons and SO comfy) and have a subtle v-shape waistband that has a higher rise on the sides. Because of the unique waistband, they will accentuate your hips, even if they’re narrow.

We love fun details around here. This pair of high-rise flared jeans have buttons along the pockets that draw attention to your natural waist, creating an hourglass shape.

If your jeans occasionally gap in the midsection because of your narrow hips, consider a stretchy pair of skinnies. Stretch denim has spandex in it to help it stretch in every direction. Skinny jeans, especially high-waisted jeans like these, will hug you in all the right places.

These plus-size skinny jeans are available in 6 different colors (ranging from a dark wash to grey) and have a high-rise waist that will elongate your legs. They are THE MOST versatile and would go with any outfit.

For a vintage feel, try these light-wash mom jeans. They have a comfortable straight cut (similar to boyfriend jeans, but aren’t baggy in the slightest) with a high waist that works with, not against, your narrow waist.

This “pinch waist” pair from Agolde is lightly distressed and faded, so it looks like it’s been your favorite pair forever (in the best. way.).
