Living in the era of skinny jeans has been hard on hippy chicks. "I know they're wrong for me, from the tiny ankles that make me look wider to the low waist that barely covers my butt," Charell Charleston, 28, says.

"Finally, jeans that let me move. I can't wait to go dancing in these!"

FIT TIPS FOR PEAR SHAPES
Legs: Wide or boot cuts give the best balance to your silhouette.
Waist: To avoid "plumber butt," go for mid- or high-rise.
Trend to try: Bright-colored denim. As long as it's the right cut, cheerful hues can slim your lower half.
