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-rise or mid-rise 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.
