Red Rivet Skinny Jeans
Once considered a fashion trend, skinny jeans have practically become a wardrobe staple. I, for one, am a bit obsessed with them. But if you thought you had to be skinny to wear skinny jeans, think again – even girls with curves, such as myself, can rock the skinnies. Here are five tips on how:
1. It’s all about the stretch:
For the girl with curves, it’s all about the stretch; Opt for skinnies with at least 2% elastane to best accentuate and hug your curves.
2. Invest in a tailor:
Most clothes don’t fit perfectly off the rack and skinny jeans are no different. Look for the jeans that fit best in the hips – a tailor can alter the waist as needed.
3. Heels please:
Heels always make the legs look longer and leaner, which is exactly how you want your legs to look in skinny jeans. And honestly, what’s sexier than a pair of heels?
4. The darker the wash, the better:
Dark colors are the most slimming, thus the best option for girls with curves. Avoid light washes or skinnies with wiskering/fading around the hips – they draw attention to the hips and make them appear wider.
5. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again:
Skinny jeans are just like regular jeans – you have to try several brands until you find the one that works best for you.
Here’s a list of brands that make skinny jeans for girls with curves:
