Jeans…denim… dungarees! A fashion trend that has spanned the globe and continues to be a favorite among young and old alike! Invented over 100 years ago, jeans are that one fashion item that has run the gamut from being synonymous with the poor working class to a symbol of wealth and affluence solely based on the name on the label. Talk about a fashion renaissance! I know many women can have a love/hate relationship with jeans, but the secret is to not stop looking until you’ve unearthed the perfect pair. Don’t settle for anything else. They don’t need to be expensive; they just need to show off your heavenly curves! Check out what the ladies of Fab Four have on the jeans menu for you!
Oohh chile, God knows I have been searching for a good pair of jeans that can fit my curvy body for the longest time. There are a few criteria that I look for in a good pair of jeans:
- I like my jeans to have stretch. I want to be able to move and be comfortable in my jeans and I hate when I feel a pinch at the waist because the they is not stretchy enough.
- I’m a sucker for skinny jeans, so I want pair of jeans that is either low rise or mid-rise and when I sit down I don’t want to have plumber crack LOL. Raise your hand if you had this happen to you in the past LOL – I’ve definitely been guilty of this over the years.
Well the search for me is over yay yay. I found 2 great pairs of jeans that meet all my requirements. I discovered this brand called Second Yoga Skin jeans and let me tell you that they are every curvy girls’ dream. Their price range varies from $90 to $160, and you can easily find them at Jean Machines.
The second pair I found, which is the pair I’m rocking on the pictures, is from Old Navy. It’s called the Women’s Sweetheart Skinny jeans in long. They are regular price $39.50 but I got them on sales for $27! They fit me perfectly and I love that they come in short, regular and long. I always go for long cause I love wearing a nice pair of skinny jeans with heels.
To top my look, I wore a sleeveless peplum top – I think that peplum tops are a great combination with skinny jeans especially for curvy girls like me. To further elevate my jeans look, I wore my salmon peep toe sandals and I added my favorite necklace.

My all time favourite thing to wear? Simple; jeans and a tee baby! My love affair with dungarees began at a young age and I’ve been ever faithful to this seemingly timeless fashion trend. Baggy, skinny, synched, bell bottomy (is that a word), I think I’ve worn them all over the years and continue to build my collection!
These skinny jeans by True Religion are my favorite pair right now! They have been broken in and feel like they are bespoke…customized just for my willowy frame! The distressed detail, which I gotta admit took me a little time to get jiggy with, is now one of the things I like most about them!
The flap pocket is perfectly placed to give the illusion that I’m packing a little more heat (i.e. junk in the trunk LOL) and the wash and skinny leg style let me easily transition this look from day time hang out gear to night time party wear! All I had to do with this look was take a simple white t-shirt and jeans and add a couple upgrades.
Speaking of upgrades…this gorgeous cape blazer, of course reminiscent of Solnage’s wedding outfit is the piece de resistance for this look. After this cape-jacket I didn’t even need shoes cause no one would have noticed!LOL But since I can’t go barefooted, I chose to finish the look with mint green pumps and a silver clutch. And of course, my sassy shades! Note to my tall girls on True Religion jeans. While I do love them, they are not always faithful to the tall girls! I sometimes have difficulty finding a pair that fit me in both waist and length. I had to go through a lot of frogs before I found my princely pair! But it was well worth the search! See ladies, we can all find our Prince, well, at least in jeans!:-)
I love dresses and skirts like the next girl, but in my heart, just like my girl Leslie, I’m all about jeans and a tee! In fact, 9 out of 10 times that you see me running through the 6, I do so wearing some variation of jeans. I dig a good pair of boyfriend jeans, love my trouser jeans, but can never part from the skinny. They easily go from casual Friday to drinks with the girls, and you already know how I feel about multi purposed clothes!
Now, we tall ladies KNOW that the quest for the perfect pair that is LONG enough is NOT an easy feat! Over the years, I’ve struck luck with brands like Levi’s, J. Crew, Old Navy and Alloy Apparel to name a few. Here, I’m rocking my very first pair of jeans from Topshop and I must say that I’m quite pleased!
With a 36” inseams, gone are the days where I have to pretend that my jeans were supposed to be “cropped” LOL. These also have the right amount of stretch: enough that I do not have the dreaded gap at the waist (my booty endowed ladies will understand!!) and not too tight that said booty will get squished.
This color loving chica swapped her rainbow for an all-black-everything look because, well, why not! I kept my look simple with a bandeau top, leather jacket (which got ditched as it got surprisingly hot!) and strappy sandals. Well, ok, I snuck some color in with the purse LOL I can’t help it!! I love to offset my almost all black looks with metallic accessories, and here, I did so with silver earrings, bracelet and this glorious necklace.
Jeans are that quintessential item in a women’s closet that are just a “no-brainer”. With the variety of styles and washes available, jeans can go from dressed up chic to casual unique in a flash. It all depends on how you want to rock them. Moreover, their versatility works for all four seasons.
I decided to on a lighter wash as my look was on the boho casual tip. For those plus size ladies who are hesistant in trying a pair of skinny jeans why not try a pair in a darker wash? This is not about hiding your body, merely playing with a trend on your terms.
I paired my light coloured jeans with a white bodysuit and floral kimono.
As I’m sure you all know, kimonos are one of the hot items for summer. They offer coverage for upper arm for those cool summer evenings.
I polished off my look with a taupe and peachy/gray leather hobo purse and taupe sandals.
