Toned, long legs can complete any outfit, especially a mini skirt or dress. Hollywood ladies such as Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel depend on professional trainers to shape and tone their legs for the perfect red carpet photo pose. Though it is not everyday that women sport mini dresses. On average, most of us wear jeans several times a week. Thus knowing how to select the perfect pair of jeans to create a sexy, toned legs appearance is important.
Look at how Graham's and Bledel's toned legs add an extra notch to their sexiness, even in just jeans and tanks. If you can't afford the expensive trainers or your parents didn't pass along good leg genes, don't worry. Below are tips and tricks for faking those mile-long legs with jeans.
How To Fake Long Legs With Jeans:
If you're short: To elongate your legs, select jeans that are high-rise style. These jeans will add inches to the upper portion of your legs and waist. High rise jeans and heels compliment Ashley Olsen (below) who is 5' 3".
If you're petite: Straight or tapered leg cuts are the way to go. These jeans can be easily shortened without disrupting the silhouette. Standing tall at 5' 2½", Christina Aguilera (below left) is often seen in jeans that have straight or tapered leg cuts to elongate her legs.
If you're curvy: Select a flare or boot-cut style that will balance the proportions of your shape. Flared jeans help to balance Jennifer Lopez's famous backside (below). If your lower body is curvy, Hillhurst Celestial Wide Leg Jean (seen on Jessica Alba!) will best compliment your body shape. Click here to learn more about these jeans.
If you have a boyish body: You can fake longer legs by wearing tapered, fitted jeans. This style of jean will accentuate the curves you do have. Take for example Natlie Portman (below right). Portman is stylish in her fitted jeans and T-shirt.

When selecting the perfect pair of jeans for your body, remember that jeans need to flatter, not follow the trends. To give you a few extra inches in the height department, don't hunch. Hunchng over makes you look schlumpy. Standing upright makes you appear both taller and slimmer. So keep your shoulders blades back and draw in your belly button in. You will look taller instantly.
