I am more in love with these Victoria Beckham dVb jeans than expected. Beckham really seems to understand the female body and how to create flattering jeans, that make a woman feel feminine as they hug every curve and minimize any flaw. So I decided to revisit her book "That Extra Half an Inch" and share her suggestions to finding a perfect pair, fit, wash and style.
♥ Check the Waist Band ♥
Waist band should not be thick or heavy or it will dig painfully into hips.
Think and heavy waist bands also can can give the muffin-top look.
Check the waist band doesn't gape at the back, to avoid a weird wind-tunnel effect.
Buy jeans cut higher at the back to avoid gaping and builder's bottom when you sit.
♥ No Bagging ♥
Jeans that bag around the knees or bottom are a fashion disaster.
Buy jeans with some stretch, and narrow around the leg to give shape at the bottom.
♥ Get The Length Right ♥
Wearing heels, the bottom of your jeans should just skim your toes.
This will give the illusion that your legs are a couple of inches longer!
With flats, jeans should end at the tip of the shoe, just grazing the ground.
♥ Color Me Beautiful ♥ White looks fresh for summer.
Be wary as white jeans can make things look larger than they are.
Subtle powder blue and pale gray look best in skinny drainpipe or high-waisted styles.
Black jeans are great but choose cut-slim styles.
Skinny black is sexy rock'n'roll; baggy black is "roadie" and unflattering.
♥ Sizing ♥
Always try jeans before buying to make sure they fit.
And always buy the right size regardless of the number.
♥ From High Street to High Fashion ♥
I recommend buying one pair of straight-leg or boot-cut jeans and one pair of skinnies. ♥ Suggestions of What to Buy ♥

... after a day of shopping. I felt amazing wearing them. Although the jean does have a flare to it, I love how long it makes my legs look.The jeans are the focus of attention in this simple outfit, as they added an interesting twist. I also really love the little stars on the behind pockets... :)
