If you have an apple shaped body type then you may well struggle to find trousers/pants that fit you well. You’ll have narrow hips, a fairly flat bottom and not much of a waist which means that trousers often gape at the hip or sag at the bottom. Skinny jeans are your best friend as they look fantastic on your perfect pins but, if you’re anything like a reader of mine who reached out for some help a couple of days ago, you probably live in them and would love to try something different. Well if all this sounds familiar then it’s your lucky day, I love dressing apple shapes! You can wear all the pant styles that I’d love to wear but steer clear of thanks to my pear shape! Also, the new season stock that is starting to make an appearance was MADE for you and the shops are brimming with pants that will fit you beautifully. I’ve picked my top 9 pairs available online now, in both the UK and the USA, and am sharing a few of the things worth looking for when you’re hunting down the the perfect pair, so scroll down to see more!
The things to look for when you’re choosing trousers are:
- A mid to high rise – these are fantastic at creating a waist and if you’re carrying a little weight around your middle (which tends to be where apple shapes put weight on) the high waist will help eliminate any chance of muffin top and is comfortable to boot.
- Choose trousers/pants that have a little added volume around the hips. Carrot and paper-bag style pants are brilliant at creating curves. The excess fabric at the hips will give you a little more shape around the bottom and will enhance your waist. They really are perfect for your shape!
- Try wide leg trousers/pants they’re often a flattering choice, especially if they have a side fastening that removes any bulk from your waist.
