Jeans are a fashion staple that we can dress up or down and often reach for when we’re having one of those ‘we have nothing to wear’ days.
Finding the right style and fit to suit your body shape can be a little tough, and if you’re plus size it can all seem a little daunting. Which ones to go for?
There are a number of fashion brands that offer jeans in plus size with a wide variety of cuts, colours and fabrics to choose from. Jeans that hug curves, hide muffin tops and make your legs look miles long.
A great tip for buying plus size jeans is to look for spandex or elastin, at least 3%, in your jeans to ensure that they’ll maintain their shape as you wear them.
Another tip is to look at the placing of pockets and ensuring that there are some, jeans, no matter what the size can look odd if they don’t have pockets.
Despite what many people may think skinny jeans can be worn by plus size women, it’s just finding the right pair. Stick to dark colours, and if they have a lighter wash in the middle then can help to slim the legs. Balance the look by going for a looser fit on top.
Wide leg jeans will help to balance your overall look, if you’re petite you’re going to need to wear heels though so they don’t drown your frame.
Boyfriend jeans are again on-trend this season, these are ideal for a plus size frame as they offer a relaxed fit whilst still outline your shape.
Hopefully these tips will help and it’s now time to shop, here are a selection of some of the best plus size jeans you can buy now.
