Trouser Jeans

101540306_L_M_w.jpg

—Great for curvy hips and thighs
—Visually flattens tummy
—Work-friendly silhouette

Our pick for a wide-leg style is this pair of Ralph Lauren jeans—the fuller leg is great if you've got less than perfect thighs (and who doesn't?) and the flat-front and side pockets are clean and flattering. With a neat, tailored shape and defined waist, these jeans are ideal for dressing up.

Top, WDNY, $48. Jeans, Lauren Jeans Co. by Ralph Lauren, $89.50.

Skinny Jeans

101540302_L_M_w.jpg

—Perfect for lean boyish figures
—Add heels for leggiest look
—Styles with stretch are best

White denim jeans are the quintessential pants of summer. We've picked these skinnies from J.Crew for their clean, polished, white-washed look. With a touch of stretch, they give in all the right places. We also like their ease at the hip and super-straight leg.

Cardigan, $89.50; top, $110; jeans, $98; crystal necklace, $118; pearl necklace, $98; pin, $9.50); all J.Crew.
