When you are round, you put on a straight cut that will lengthen and refine the legs and, overall, the whole silhouette. Thin women can opt for straight or curved, as desired.

What pants?

For the look to work, we advise you to opt for skinny or slim. We avoid loose palazzo-type cuts and culottes that would create too much volume at the level of the legs, thus visually increasing their size.

Which dress or skirt?

If you prefer to wear a dress or a skirt with your long denim jacket , you will have no choice if you are small, you will have to bet on the short. Always with the idea of ​​obtaining elongated legs, we throw ourselves on straight cut mini-skirts and mini-dresses, which fall mid-thigh or just above the knee preferably. Note that a pencil skirt just below the knee can also work, but it will require the wearing of high heels.

If, on the other hand, you are rather tall and slender, you can opt for mule-type flat shoes with a square toe and a pleated midi skirt.


What shoes?

If you have any doubts about the shoes to wear with a long denim jacket , bet on the heel. The risk of the flat shoe, coupled with a midi or ankle length, is indeed to pack your silhouette if the games of volumes and lengths are not perfectly controlled... Beyond that, we like sneakers, mules, boots, pumps, etc. Know that, if you have the legs for it, the thigh-high boots work very well with the long denim jacket.
