If you’re apple-shaped you’ll want your denim to have a little stretch in the waist, because you tend to carry your weight around the middle.
Choose a high-rise or mid-rise skinny jean that will not only elongate your shape but will also provide a little extra coverage in the midsection and eliminates the dreaded muffin-top.
