If you're rounded at the waist and your upper body is larger than your lower half then you're an apple gal!

Look for: A style that hits you mid-waist, around your bellybutton or slightly below it. "Despite what many women think, a higher waistline would actually accentuate -- not conceal -- your belly," Gretta says. Go for a dark wash, which is visually slimming, and thick denim that holds you in to prevent a muffin top.

Avoid: Pockets, pleats or other details around the waist. Same goes for funky rinses that create lines or splotching near your hips. "All those things draw attention to your middle. You want to look as smooth and sleek as possible."
