THEY'RE a fashion staple for women of all shapes and sizes.
But if you're apple shaped and are a lover of skinny jeans, you might want to have a rethink of your wardrobe.
Style expert Miranda Holder has been sharing sartorial tips on her TikTok page, and recently posted a video explaining her best suggestions for those who are self-conscious of their stomach.
"The biggest styling mistakes I see on people who are apple shaped or who have a big tummy," Miranda said.
"Quite often, apple shapes have fantastic slim legs. Congratulations – that’s amazing.
"And the temptation is to put them in skinny jeans or leggings or a miniskirt even and get them out, while wearing something big and baggy on your top half."

But doing that is making you look bigger, Miranda explained – as "sections of your body can look bigger or smaller depending on what’s on the part next to it".
"So wearing something super skinny on your legs is actually only going to make your top half appear more solid and larger," she said.
Instead, and despite it sounding "counter intuitive", she said it's more flattering for apple shapes to wear a straight legged jean or a wide-legged trouser.
"oooh interesting and guilty of doing this," one person commented on the video.
