THE JEANS Aristocrat: Essex Cropped Skinny Jean

THE JEANS Joes: The Cigarette Ankle Jean
WHY THEY WORK The 30-inch inseam on these narrow jeans ensures a proper fit on petites. The tapered ankle won't bunch when worn with flats, and they'll work just as well paired with leg-lengthening heels.

THE JEANS Kasil: Chelsea Jean
WHY THEY WORK Not only do the cuffs look smart on these 31-inch legs, they also makes tailoring easier if you need them shorter. This pair also looks great on small legs, since they're fitted through the thigh.

THE JEANS Stitch's: Yuma Boot-Cut Jean

THE JEANS Old Navy: Ultra-Low Waist Skinny Jean
WHY THEY WORK All Old Navy jeans come in long lengths, so you can get any of their jeans with a 34-inch inseam. The narrow cut on this pair show off and accentuate elongated gams.

THE JEANS Hudson: Boot Cut Jean
WHY THEY WORK The button pockets add the appearance of volume. Keep in mind that you want pockets that are proportional to your butt size, so if you have a small behind, opt for littler pockets. If your butt is on the longer, flatter side, you want larger pockets-small ones will make your rear look wider and flatter.

THE JEANS Lofli: Denim Trousers
WHY THEY WORK The key to this pair is the angle of the pocket flaps. Angled yokes, or back seams, create an illusion of roundness; straight-across seams flatten the derriere.
BUY ONLINE NOW $172; anthropologie.com.
THE JEANS True Religion: Joey Stretch Jean
WHY THEY WORK The curvature of the pockets give the illusion of roundness to a flat rear. The buttons also add volume and create a lifting effect.

THE JEANS Chip amp Pepper: Stella Straight Leg

THE JEANS Paper Denim amp Cloth: Classic Boot Cut
WHY THEY WORK The flared leg counterbalances a big belly, while the elastic waistband offers stomach support. Heel lovers and tall moms will love the 33-inch inseam.

THE JEANS J Brand: Mama J
WHY THEY WORK If you don't want an extra flap of material over your belly, these jeans are for you. They are low enough to go beneath the stomach, but have a high rise in the back to prevent gaping. Bonus: The elastic tabs on the sides expand as you do!
BUY ONLINE NOW $210; peainthepod.com.
