The holidays are over, which means that the shiny, glamorous dresses worn throughout the season shall be tucked away for another year. Though we will miss dressing up, we welcome our day-to-day outfits, where comfort is of the utmost priority...especially when you are chasing a little one around. And nothing gives us that sense of ease more than a great pair of jeans. 

With the New Year, updating your wardrobe is a must. And because jeans are the most versatile item in our closets, a great pair should be thought of as an investment—you need something flattering, comfortable and that can be worn daily. However, buying jeans is a very personal task since everyone’s shape differs. But if you are uncertain about which jeans are right for you, we've rallied a few options that should serve as a shopping guideline.

Petite: Cropped jeans, paired with fabulous stilettos, will make you magically appear taller.  FRAME DENIM Le Garcon Mi-Rise Slim Boyfriend Jeans, $210

Full Figure: Skinny jeans are the most flattering cut for those with a Rubenesque figure. Opt for black, which slims while emphasizing your curves. TOPSHOP MOTO Black Jamie High Waisted Jeans,$70

Ruler Shaped: Having a small, narrow frame makes finding the right pair of jeans oh so important. Choose a low rise in a light wash with pockets that will add curves to your figure. DSQUARED2 Zip Detailed Skinny, $465

Tall: Tall girls may have a hard time finding jeans cut properly for their long legs. Most brands offer tall cuts that show off those mile-long legs. STELLA MCCARTNEY Amanda High-Waisted Flared, $325
