Blue jeans- try a dressy pinstripe waist coat over a casual long shirt for a day look

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1′ 140lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

The best blue jeans for apple shapes is a boot cut, flare, or wide leg jean long enough to wear heels

I like wearing wedge heels for this outfit. The thick heel works well with a large opening for the foot. Since this flare/boot cut is so wide, it wouldn’t look right with a platform or stiletto heel.

Added distressed lines around the hip area create horizontal lines, widening this area (we want that because it balances out an apple shape’s wider shoulders).

Also choose a lighter to medium wash blue jean instead of a dark wash to add in widening the lower half of the body.

Blue jeans: the every day staple

The top part of this blue jeans outfit

I always wear blue jeans with a long-ish dark colored top. The dark color slims the upper half of the body, and the long length (falls at the hip) elongates the torso. The even darker waist coat jacket with vertical lines adds to the elongating torso effect. Because the waist coat is cropped, it cinches the waist, especially in the back.
