What her mama gave her...

"Now Honey, you can't blame her
For what her mama gave her
It ain't right to hate her
For workin' that money-maker
Band shuts down at two
But we're hangin' out till three
We hate to see her go
But love to watch her leave"

Ok. Are you still on the couch? Or have you decided to get up and let the shewolf out?
Are you ready to let go a little bit and just get out there?
Or are you still having a hard time getting a goin?
You know what might just be the easiest step to get you on your way to out on the town?
Jeans.
That's right. We all have 'em. We all love 'em. It's a safety zone to us all. But if you're going out on the town, make sure to bring a little edge. Don't wear your "Mom" jeans, don't wear your "fat" jeans and definitely make sure you can tell there's a bum there!
Not all of us are blessed with a honky tonk badonkadonk and not all bums are created equal.
Some of us have more than we can handle, some a perfect bum (we all hate you), a long bum, a flat bum or a no bum (we're all rooting for you!).
But no worries, there's a fit and a style to accent every single one of us. There IS a pair of jeans out there for you and one that fits you well!
Focus on that and don't give up! The beauty of jeans is that they look great on everyone, but ONLY if it's something that fits you. Don't get lazy and don't accept sub par. You are a beautiful person and part of realizing that is dressing that!
While it's vital to make sure your jeans fit all the way down your thigh, in the crotch (it needs to be said), and ESPECIALLY around your waist (muffin tops are never, never, never, never ok. Never.), we'll be focusing more on the bum!
The make or break of bum fitting jeans? The back pocket. That's right. For every bum type there is a pocket that will make your bum look fantastic or completely flawed.
The Angled Pocket:
A denim pocket that is slightly angled at the top with do all sorts of favors for women who bear the apple or square shape. This angle pockets will create a hourglass illusion. And really, who doesn't want that?
Are you pear shaped or have a round behind? Go for a pocket angled straight up and down.
It will do you all kinds of favors.
Pocket Size:
Are you all kinds of voluptuous on the bottom half? Stray far far away from small pockets. The will do your already beautiful bum no favors. Also. Be aware of the embellishments. More embellishments equal a smaller looking pocket. You want to look for a pocket that does your bum favors, so go for a midsized pocket. Large pockets are also a "no-go". Back pockets that are too large tend to look more masculine than even a good pair of boyfriend jeans will go for.
Pocket Placing:
This can be ridiculously imperative. Even if it seems like a small detail. The easiest rule of thumb to follow? Make sure the pocket it centered of the fullest portion of your bum. You'll be amazing at what a small detail can do for you bum! Be careful with this rule though and don't go overboard. If you let your pockets go too far down it will start effecting the length of your legs. Looking "squatty" on your night out simply will not do.
EXCEPT, do you have long long long legs? If you have "legs for miles" have a little fun with a low pocket. It will give your bum the perfect boost it's been waiting for!
Also be aware of how close the back pockets are together. Two close together will give you a uni-bum. Gross. Too far apart will give you the appearance of wide hips. No thanks! But work these two "rules" for your benefit. Wide hips? Look for pockets that are a little closer together. Have narrow hips? Look for pockets that are a little farther apart.
Embellished Pocket:
Have the perfect bum? Absolutely love it and not ashamed of a little detail? Hoorah for you! Go for embellishments. Have fun with a little embroidery and rhinestones!
Have the perfect bum but ready for it to take a backseat (pun intended) to some other assets? Go for a more basic back pocket.
Got the flat butt? Embellish, flap, stud! Do whatever it takes! All these fun and rockin' embellishments will bring the much needed volume to your backside.
Two things to be wary of.
One. Pay attention to wear these embellishments are leading your eyes. Are they pointing downwards? Don't pair them with a long butt. It will just make it longer. Wide hips or saddlebags? Don't get jeans with horizontal embroidery!
Two. If you go too embellished when those jeans go out of style, they'll be out of style. Nothing is worse then dated jeans. Go for a classic embellishment that you won't be afraid to wear next year too!

Whew! Now was that a lot of information or what? If this seems like a denim overload, focus on the points that directly address YOU. Don't get caught up in the do's and dont's of someone else's body.
Can I say it again? Pay attention to the fit and DON'T let yourself muffin top just to get in a lower size. It will make you look like you need to be in a bigger size when you could just look fantastic!
