Nowadays we can all find a pair of jeans to suit any occasion, however, find the perfect pair of jeans to fit and flatter your shape can be a bit of a daunting task.

We all can't be blessed with model figures, but there's a a denim style out there for us all - because it is important to feel good in what you're wearing.

If you're unsure about which styles to go for to best suit your looks, we have a simple guide to buying

Best jeans for your body shape

1.Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are universally a look great on most body shapes, it's just a question of finding the fabric and cut that flatter you.

You'll want to find fabrics that stretch to flatter and appropriately fit your body type, another top tip is to wear skinny's that are a little bit longer than your height; team with a pair of heels to elongate those pins and create your ideal silhouette.

As a rule of thumb, black tends to be more slimming but, you can't go wrong with true denim. There are also plenty of brightly coloured and printed options to choose from if you're more adventurous.

2.Boyfriend Jeans

In terms of comfort and having a bit more movement (you'll know if you've ever worn super skinnies) boyfriend jeans are among the most popular styles for casual wearing.

If you're apple or pear shaped, boyfriend jeans help to balance out your proportions and give you an even silhouette.

They're also great as an all round jean style to have in the wardrobe, team with heel, boos and trainers alike.

3.High-Waisted Jeans

Generally speaking, whatever your body qualms are you can pretty much hide all of the lumps and bumps with a correct-fitting pair of high waisted jeans.

It'll cinch in your waist giving you a curvaceous silhouette, as well as elongate those legs if you go for a pair of high waisted skinies.

They're also one of the most popular style around today and can be worn for casual or dressier occasions.

4.Flared Jeans

A classic look that has been slowly making a comeback for the past few season. Slightly flared hems are ideal if you don't want to go too 'out there', whilst a classic flare is great to add the finishing touch to any chic attire.

Wide leg trousers help to slim down wider hips, if you're big buster as well, flares and the right top will help to balance your proportions in all of the right places.
