Ask any woman what she looks for in a pair of jeans and she'll probably list "that they make my butt look great" right up there with comfort. While you might assume that this holy grail quality is achieved through a flattering cut or figure-hugging fabric, it actually comes down to a much smaller detail. Beverly Osemwenkhae, the CEO and founder of ProjectBee wardrobe consulting in New York City, explains what to look for when shopping for derriere-enhancing denim.

Tuesday Tip: Jean Pockets

When shopping for a new pair of jeans, you need to keep the pocket size in mind. Smaller back pockets automatically change the size of your bum while no pockets at all give the illusion of a bigger size bum. The most flattering pocket style is a traditional jean pocket that's tilted slightly outward—just remember when trying on a pair of jeans that they should never sit lower than the bottom curve of your butt, or where your butt cheeks meet your legs."
