Whether you're hanging out with friends and family around town, traveling or simply relaxing during the weekend, you need a pair of flattering men's jeans that can withstand wear and tear and go where you go. Find the styles you want, including men's designer jeans and men's low-rise jeans, and get the perfect fit with just a few tips. Read on to find the best men's blue jeans for your body.

Buying Men's Jeans:

  1. Choose a straight-leg style. Men's straight-leg jeans are flattering on almost everyone, because they fall straight from the waist to the floor and don't taper or flare. Whether you have a full stomach or rear or wide thighs, a pair of men's straight-leg jeans will slim your body and camouflage problem areas. Look for low-rise men's blue jeans in a dark wash for the ultimate slimming style and find a pair with slight whiskering near the front pockets for a trendy look. Buy men's denim jeans that are versatile enough to wear with the dress shirts, T-shirts, sweatshirts and other tops you have in your wardrobe.

  2. Buy bootcut jeans for a dressy look. Perfect for wearing with dress shoes or boots, men's bootcut jeans fall straight from the waist and flare slightly at the hem to accommodate thicker footwear. Men's bootcut jeans look great with button-ups, T-shirts or sweaters, and their forgiving fit makes them polished enough to wear to work on casual days and to a party or more formal event. Look for black, grey or dark denim men's jeans you can pair with leather ankle boots and a V-neck sweater for a sophisticated, classy look. Bootcut jeans can give you the illusion of a broader frame if you are thin and also help to elongate your legs.

  3. Look for low-rise cuts. For a relaxed fit that is forgiving in the waist, seat and hips, buy men's low-rise jeans with classic detailing on the pockets. Low-rise jeans look great with T-shirts and sneakers for a laid-back vibe, but they can also be polished with a wide belt, dress shirt and dress shoes. A grey or brown antiqued finish will give you a vintage look, while men's denim jeans in a dark wash with contrasting stitching are modern and dressier. Look for men's designer jeans in low-rise styles, especially with flattering pockets and washes.
