Whether it’s a vintage pair of 501’s, 505’s or the new and fabulous “Wedgie Fit”, Levi’s have the ability to flatter a girl’s frame- particularly her butt. Yes yes, all of these girls in the pictures are model skinny, but I am not and I can tell you they’re still ultra flattering on a “normal” bod.
LA stylist, Jessica DeRuiter (pictured directly below in her beloved 501s), advises that a classic fit in 100% cotton & in a higher rise will be the most flattering. She explains that the “low-waist stretchy jeans we’re all used to cut your butt in half and flatten it”. While I have a couple pairs of cutoffs and can attest to their magic, I’m ready for a pair of jeans. I’ve been stalking online shop, Re/Done (vintage pairs reworked into modern fits), but the hefty price tags have scared me off a few times. Luckily, So far, I’ve found that Urban Outfitters, Etsy have great selections too. Tip: go up 1 or 2 sizes as Levi’s run small!!
