DENIM DICTIONARY - WHICH SILHOUETTE BEST FITS YOU?
We’re famous for our fit (If you’ve tried on a pair of our skinnies, you know why!) What you may not know is that our signature fit carries across every denim style we carry. While not every pair of Just Black Denim jeans are designed to fit like a glove, they are all carefully fit tested to ensure every cut is as flattering and comfortable as possible.
We know it can be difficult to determine the right size jeans for your body, so we’ve compiled a silhouette glossary with fit tips to help you find the perfect pair in every style!
Skinny - They fit like a glove from waist to ankle and hug every curve.
Straight Leg – Relaxed, yet form fitting with a little extra room in the seat and thigh.
Mom Jeans – Structured, slouchy fit with a little extra room all over.
Wide Leg – Fit snug in the seat and flare from the thigh to ankle.
Bootcut – Fit snug in the seat and flare from knee to ankle.
Flares – Fit snug in the seat and flare at ankles.
Low Rise – 7.5” – 8”
Mid Rise – 8.5” – 9”
High Rise – 9.5” – 10”
Super High Rise – 10” +
Finding the right fit is largely dependent on the silhouette and fabric of a particular style. Once you have an idea of how a silhouette is supposed to fit, visit your local Just Black Denim retailer and hop into the dressing room with 2-3 different sizes and see which option works best on your body. Every fabric will have a unique stretch and recovery ratio, so it’s important to take this into consideration when selecting the right size for you. If you’re ordering a pair of jeans online, it’s helpful to take measurements of your natural waist, low hip and inseam to help you determine the perfect pair.
