The Perfect Jeans Cut for Pear-shapes

IMG_4664-0.JPG
The last season has been all about resurrecting jeans washes and cuts from eras long gone by: take the Boyfriend for instance which works great with any figure , the Mom jeans which we still don’t feel flatter anyone (no offense mum) , and the High-waisted ultra skinny jean.
If you’re not blessed with the figure of Elle Macpherson or have an impossibly tiny waist , the high waisted skinny will only add pounds to your overall frame and put emphasis on your “burger aftermath” belly.

As a pear shaped woman with a waistline that has grown a couple of inches thicker post-baby, I have become a true size 10 from the waist down and still remain a size 8 on top.
For the past few years I had bought in bulk from Topshop their mid-rise Baxter cut in every single wash and colour. The cut is roomy enough around the hips and upper thighs and still flattering on the waist, behind and legs.

Until the Baxter cut completely disappeared from the Topshop floor and was replaced by it’s skinnier higher waisted counterpart the Leigh. We are thrilled that the Baxter is back in a new improved form: with a touch of stretch added to the fabric, a skinnier fit around the calf , a shorter hem that flatters the slimmest part of the ankle and strategically placed knee rips. The New Baxter is the best skinny pair of denims (and may we add the most affordable you could find) to flatter your fuller and less than model figure.

We’ve styled it by resurrecting the 80s with a touch of new millennium , by opting for a light wash and going for a total denim look. Just add legendary stilettos by Gianvito Rossi or the most comfortable Christian Louboutin pump (the 100 Décolleté), a structured black bag for a touch of modernism and gold tone jewelry with accents of black. Wear this look for a casual night out or a spin around the city.
You can also play the Eighties card further with a racer back varsity inspired tank top from Koton or Etoile by Isabel Marant and a pair of Converse canvas shoes. Stack up your bracelets and sling across your chest a small cross body bag for a contemporary touch.
