The Perfect Fit: Find the Best High Waisted Women's Jeans for Your Body Type

Pear, apple, or hourglass, every woman’s body is beautiful – particularly in the right pair of high-waisted jeans. Today, we’ll be showing you how to find the perfect fit to suit your body type, and discussing how to choose jean colors that match your unique style while elevating your look.

 

Find Your Body Type

Understanding your body type is an essential first step to finding your perfect fit. While women’s bodies come in a range of shapes and sizes, most can be divided into five general categories:

Apple: The apple figure features hips and shoulders of roughly equal width, and a waistline that’s the same width or wider. 

Pear: Slimmer at the top and broadening at the bottom, the shoulders and bust of a pear-shaped body are significantly narrower than the hips.

Hourglass: With hips and a bust that are roughly equal in size, the hourglass figure narrows at the waist, creating a curved shape similar to an hourglass.

Rectangle: Also known as the ‘athletic build’, the measurements of the waist, hips, and bust are roughly equal. 

Inverted Triangle: Another athletic figure, the inverted triangle is defined by wide, straight shoulders and a narrower waistline, hips, and legs.

 

Finding Your Fit

Now that you know your body type, it’s time to explore the most flattering jeans to match. Here are some of the most popular styles of women’s jeans, as well as who they work best for:

 

High Waisted Flare Jeans

Hugging the body at the waist before flaring out below the knee, this highly versatile cut works with most body types – depending on the flare size. 

A more subtle flare can be a gorgeous option for rectangle and hourglass figures, while pear and apple shaped bodies look absolutely stunning in a more dramatic flare. Flare jeans can also offset the wide shoulders of an inverted triangle figure for a more balanced silhouette. 

 

High Waisted Skinny Jeans

Hugging the body from the waist right down to the ankles, skinny jeans are designed to accentuate the natural beauty of most body types. However, women with larger calves may wish to avoid super-tight jeans for a more comfortable and flattering fit.

 

High Waisted Straight Leg Jeans

As the name would suggest, straight leg jeans feature a straight silhouette with a consistent leg width all the way down.

This cut works with a range of body types and is the preferred option for women with larger calves, apple or pear-shaped bodies, or those who don’t like their pants to cling too tightly. Inverted triangle and straight builds will also love how these jeans add a little extra width to the lower half of the body.

We recommend every wardrobe sport at least one pair of straight leg jeans.


High Waisted Straight Leg Jeans

Perfect for the petite ladies among us, 7/8 length high waisted jeans fit like full length jeans on women under 170cm in height. 

On taller women, these jeans stop above the ankle, meaning they’re a great way of showing off your fancy footwear. We love seeing taller ladies pairing them with their favorite pumps or heels. 

 

7/8 Length High Waisted Pants

Perfect for the petite ladies among us, 7/8 length high waisted jeans fit like full length jeans on women under 170cm in height. 

On taller women, these jeans stop above the ankle, meaning they’re a great way of showing off your fancy footwear. We love seeing taller ladies pairing them with their favorite pumps or heels. 

 

Full Length High Waisted Pants

One for the taller ladies, full length jeans are designed to cover right down past your ankles. Full length jeans will swim on shorter women, so we only recommend them for women over 170cm in height. 

 

Choosing Your Color

Now that we’ve found your fit, it’s time to choose the right colors to suit your style. Here are some tips for maximizing your look with colors. 

Blue High Waist Jeans

A classic color that belongs in every wardrobe, we recommend keeping a couple of shades of blue jeans on-hand for a little extra versatility. Blue jeans can be divided into three main categories: 

Light wash blue jeans: A stylishly breezy choice that’s particularly good for summer, light wash jeans are highly versatile and work with both light and dark colored tops.

Medium wash blue jeans: The workhorse of washes, medium wash jeans are perfect for year-round wearing and are a little more casual than dark washes. 

Dark wash blue jeans: Slimming and sophisticated, we love seeing dark wash blue jeans paired with neutral tops. You can dress dark blue jeans up with darker shades, or wear them with a plain white tee for a more casual look.

 

Black High Waisted Jeans

Cool and always on-trend, black jeans can be paired with almost any colored shirt. Looking sleek and stylish when worn with neutral colors, you can also liven up your black jeans with a pop of vibrant color. 

 

White High Waisted Pants

Dark-colored jeans can leave you sweltering in the summer heat, which is why white is better for the warmer months. Great for a more laid-back look, white jeans are ultra-versatile and can be worn with neutral or vibrant colors of virtually any shade. 

 

Gray High Waisted Pants

Ideal for the cooler months, gray is seen as a casual color, so we don’t recommend it for formal wearing. Neutral colors such as white, black, or even taupe pair wonderfully with gray jeans, though the versatility of the color means you can also experiment with greens, reds, pinks and blues. 

 

Pink High Waisted Pants

A bold look for women who like to stand out from the crowd, pink high waisted pants are an eye-catching alternative to wearing white jeans in summer. We recommend pairing with a neutral white, gray, or black top to really make those pink jeans pop.

 

Red High Waisted Pants

Vibrant, fun, and just a little bit cheeky, red jeans are a great way of spicing up your wardrobe. Red looks fabulous year-round and can be worn on almost any occasion. It pairs beautifully with a simple white or black top, though you can also experiment with stripes and patterns – or even a matching red crop top for a sizzling hot style. 

 

Finding Your Perfect Jeans

At FREDDY, we’re passionate about helping women feel beautiful and confident in their own skin – and their jeans! We offer a variety of cuts to accentuate your naturally gorgeous figure, while our broad range of colors ensure you can always find something to suit your unique style.
