Jeans. A great pair can be your go-to, your saviour, the most reliable friend in your closet that you can slip on every day, for every occasion. But so many things can go wrong (don't even get me started on Britney & Justin's denim trainwreck); from poorly-placed pockets that make your bum look 2 sizes too big, to a tight fit that can add rolls you didn't even know you had. Jean shopping takes time, patience and perserverance. The pay-off? Fabulous friends that will stick by you all season long. Take a look at some of the new jeans at New Sudbury Centre for every body type, and remember, when it comes to finding the perfect pair, it's all about trying, trying and trying again. Your body (and your bootie) will thank you.
BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS
Perfect Match - Never one to shy away from colour, you like to make a statement and show off your gams.
How to Wear Them: Pair them with any of your basic neutrals, like white, cream, black, grey or beige.
Sole Mates: Keep it low-key with ballet flats or loafers or add height with a great pair of ankle boots.
The Jean: Cameron Tummy Control Slim Leg Jeans, $64, Cleo
Perfect Match: Great for a post-baby body or any woman with a tummy they want to conceal
How to Wear Them: The dark denim is super flattering and can be dressed up or down. Pair it with a great sweater for day and then rock it with an embellished tank and blazer for after work.
Sole Mates: The slight flare makes these jeans super versatile so you can wear them with everything from a pair of platform booties to a pointy-toed pump.
The Jeans: Skinny Kick Jeans, $29.71, American Eagle Outfitters
Perfect Match: You like them tight, but not too tight. This new silhouette blends everything you love about the skinny with a little flattering kick at the bottom to balance out your proportions

Perfect Match: Your waist is smaller than your hips and you have trouble finding pants to fit both.
