    Plus size fashion tips on what to look for in skinny jeans.

    At FocusOnStyle we believe that looking gorgeous is not about size but about attitude. Please welcome Marie Leggett, The Curvy Fashionista to share some of her plus size fashion tips about how to make the most of what you’ve got, no matter what size you wear.

    Marie’s skinny jeans tips are not only for the plus-sized fashionista, but for anyone with a curvy figure who has a tough time fitting into jeans because her body type has some hips and thighs.–S.H.

    Actually they are both!

    Just when you thought that skinny jeans couldn’t get any skinnier, we have jeggings amping up the style factor as one of the one of the season’s hottest trends.

    YES, the curvy fashionista CAN wear jeggings! Jeggings are this season’s new fusion “it” item for the spring with the combination of the jean and the legging, hence, jeggings- cute right? That’s sounds like something destined for a skinny girl, right?

    Well, not if you follow some some of my plus size fashion tips about how to work your curves into looking amazing in a pair of well-fitting jeggings.

    Fit and fabric content are going to be the most important tools for you when looking to score this latest look.

    • To preserve the integrity and the longevity of your jeggings, make sure you pay attention to the size charts the designers use to ensure proper fit and wear. You would not want to look “stuffed” into your jeggings, rather the jeggings should hug your curves and skim over your extra curvy sections.
    • The fabrication of these are more important for the Curvy Fashionista, as we tend to have our thighs rub or our curves put more stress on the fabric in different areas. Spandex, while plentiful, tends to easily break, as its threads only stretch in a single direction. It is best to look for jeggings with a special blend or a new technology that offers your jeggings life, comfort, and wear.
    • Plus size denim designers like Svoboda offer a trademarked blend of premium denim which includes 24% Elastarell, an improved and sophisticated fabric, offering a multi-directional stretch pattern without losing its shape.
    • Plus size British retailer, Evans (they DO deliver to the U.S.), uses 2% Elastane instead of spandex, offering a varied array of jeggings from the acid wash to the black denim options

    Whichever designer or retailer you choose to fashion your curves with, know that fit and fabrication are the most important keys when shopping for jeggings for the curvy gal. — Marie Leggett, The Curvy Fashionista
