The Plus Size Girl's Guide to Skinny Jeans (Part 1)

If you think you're too thick to wear skinny jeans, think again!  It's  all about styling and proportion. First of all, make sure your skinny jeans fit.  There is nothing worse than ill fitting jeans.  They should be fitted close to your body, but not so tight that the seams look like they might bust. For plus size women, skinny jeans look great with over sized tops or tunics.  Top it off with a short cardigan or cinch your waist with a cool belt to show off an hourglass figure.  It's all about layering! If you carry your weight up top, then go with a shorter top (above the hip) and show off those gorgeous legs.  Skinny jeans can be paired with a chic pair of flats for a casual look, or spice it up with a pair of sexy heels to dress things up for evening.  Skinny jeans look especially great with boots.  Tuck them in to a pair of riding boots and top it off with a great jacket for a look that is modern and sleek.  Or you can do a short boot like our idol, Queen Latifah (pictured left).  You can buy skinny jeans and cargos almost anywhere.  I just bought a great pair of ankle-zip skinny cargos at Old Navy for the bargain price of $15.  At that price you can afford to experiment with your personal style.   Keep checking in for more ideas on how to sport this hot trend!
