If there is one thing I used to constantly struggle with, it was finding the perfect pair of jeans. And I know that I am not alone! When it comes to fashion, tracking down the prefect pair jeans that hug your curves just right can make the shopping experience… well, kind of hellish. In fact, if you ask most women “which items do you absolutely loathe shopping for?” and denim runs a close second to swimwear. So as we start the fall season, I wanted to share with you five plus size denim brands to play in for fall- not to be confused with the plus size retailers who sell denim!
I mean, how many times have you found yourself excitedly tossing pair after pair of fun, flirty, or sexy jeans over your arms to try on in the dressing room and leave the store empty handed and a bit sad? Not enough give in the thigh, too low of a rise, to short of an inseam… I get it! Trust me, I have been there and I feel your pain!
But fear not! There is hope!
There are some fab designers out there who have done their due diligence in providing us curvy fashionistas of the world with a great pair that work for the thigs, booty, and tummy! And now is the perfect time to start shopping for jeans as the lazy heat of summer slowly makes way for the crisp fall weather. Denim is often my BFF (best fashion find) when it comes to cooler weather because with the right tops, outerwear, shoes, and accessories, you can rock them in just about any occasion.
Add to the fact that the 70s and denim have been getting the fancy fashion spotlight, I thought it would only be right to share a few brands who are serving us more than a few options to play in! Pair it with a cute pair of flats and a nice blouse and you are good to go for work. Throw on some sexy stilettos, a flirty or crisp top, and some accessories and you are ready to hit the town. You just can’t lose with a trusty pair of plus size jeans in your wardrobe.
So, without further ado, here are 5 denim brands that cater to the curvy and plus size women!
Get into the list below! $= Under $75; $$= Under $100; $$$= $100+
