I Could Wear... Straight Body Shape Edition

It’s hard to find the perfect pair of jeans… right? We want jeans that fit our strong thighs AND accentuate our figures. If you have a straight body shape, you are no stranger to this challenge. Take the guesswork out of your shopping with our round-up of the best jeans for your rectangle body shape. 

Even better… Take our short (and free!) quiz to get access to your personalized online jeans shop. We’ll recommend which size you should buy based on your body shape and customer feedback.

3 Tips for Styling Jeans on your Rectangular (Straight) Body Shape

If you have a rectangle shape, your shoulders, hips, and legs are all about the same width. For this reason, rectangle body shapes are also sometimes called straight or athletic. Because of your proportions, you can play with items in your wardrobe to create a variety of silhouettes. Jeans are no exception! 

Use these style tips next time you’re looking for the right pair of jeans.

  • Look for high-waisted styles. The right waistline-to-hips ratio is key to finding jeans that fit your legs and don’t leave a gap at the waist. High-waisted jeans are a great solution. They give you the illusion of curves, whereas low-rise jeans draw attention to your straight waist.
  • Go for comfort. Always. Choose a pair of jeans that is comfortable on your thighs but sinches the areas you want to be accentuated. Stretch denim is a great option for slimmer-cut jeans. Alternatively, straight-leg and boyfriend jeans will give you room to move around.
  • Don’t be afraid of flare. The key to dressing your athletic body type is adding dimension (and having fun! … this is fashion after all, right?). Use jean shapes to create curves and a defined waist. Bootcut jeans, for example, are a great way to add an hourglass shape to your figure. Flare jeans and wide-leg jeans are also flattering if you’re looking for more flowy options.

The 6 Best Jeans for a Rectangle Body Shape

We believe in wearing jeans that make you feel confident… no matter your shape. If it wasn’t clear, we’re not fans of labeling bodies here at Revelle. But since we’re the jeans experts in the room, here are the best jeans for your strong, straight body shape.

These high-waisted, lightly distressed jeans utilize a straight cut. Not too baggy and not too tight, they will give your athletic build the moment it deserves.

We love a pair of high-rise bootcut jeans. How could you not? This pair has a defined waist and will accentuate your long legs. Plus, curvy-fit jeans come with a little wiggle room for your strong lower half.
