Fall Into the Latest Plus Size Denim Trends

I don’t know about you but I live in denim. My wardrobe consists of denim jackets, vests (yes vests), shorts, Bermudas, crops, and jeans of every fit imaginable. Denim is an essential in the basic, laid-back California wardrobe and I love it. My favorite outfit for Fall would have to be a great pair of plus size dark denim, clean skinny jeans paired with a classic blouse, cardigan, and finished off with an awesome pair of high heel boots. Ask anyone who knows me and this is what you will find me in on any given day.

This season denim plays a huge roll in plus size fashion and comes in some great new cuts and styles that I know you will love. Here is a list of some of the top trends in Oversized Denim Jacket for Fall 2009. Enjoy!

Wide-leg, Trouser style Denim– The Trouser style jeans are generally high-waisted and snug in the hips. These look incredible on pear shaped women and are great for work. When shopping for this style look for classic washes, simple detail, with a shoe-skimming hem.

Skinny Jean– The dark wash skinny jean is the perfect jean to go from a day-to-night look. Just throw on a jacket and change up your accessories and you are ready to go from work to an evening out with the girls. These simple, elegant, legging-like jeans are an absolute essential for Fall. When shopping for the perfect skinny jean this season, look for a style that fits well at the waist-line and does not give you a muffin top. Perhaps find a style with stretch that will work with your plus size figure. You want the legs to fit tightly and bunch a bit at the ankles. This is how a skinny jean should look and feel.

If you are looking for a style of skinny jeans with a little high fashion detail, look for plus size styles that have a motocross/biker feel. These styles have quilted or funky stitched knees and details that give off a high-fashion, seductive street vibe.

Shredded, Destroyed Jeans– A bit of a rebellious style these jeans come in a variety of frayed styles to all-out destroyed. This look is mostly for a daytime look and looks great in a variety of washes. The most figure flattering silhouette for this style is a slim cut, with fraying down the legs or pockets, and ankle-length paired with simple flats. Avoid styles that are baggy or too long. We don’t want to look like a hobo, but rather cool and chic. If you have found a great pair of shredded plus-size jeans, please let me know….I am searching!

Studded Jeans-These embellished, punky style jeans are a bit rough, funky, and glamourous all at the same time. With this look any style jean goes. So you can have studded skinny jeans, boyfriend, or bootcut. Be sure to find styles with large, hefty studs that focus on the waistband, along the pockets, or down the leg.
