Yes, Thick Girls Can Wear Colored Jeans

 

When I requested to write about how to wear colored jeans if you’re plus-size, Kathryn and everyone kinda looked at me a little strange. Okay, a LOT strange. Basically, they thought it might be like someone wanting to write about cars who had never driven one. What suggestions could my non-plus-size self possibly offer about colored jeans for plus-size women? Plenty.

Ladies, here’s a little secret: There used to be 70 more pounds of me. Yup. So I know about some of the challenges plus-size gals can face in their quest to 1. find awesome styles and 2. wear them well.

Step aside, skinny minnies; curvaceous bods can totally rock colored pants, too.

Here’s how to make the look work:

Lighter colors make anything look larger. Good for wall color in a studio apartment, not so much for the body-conscious. Stay away from pale shades like light yellows or soft peaches; we’re into dark greens, deep purples and intense blues. Darker shades tend to “smooth” out bumpy spots or diminish bulges.
