By now I'm sure you've all seen the denim trends for fall. Tight, skinny cut jeans that flatter anyone under a size 4. But, whoa! What about the rest of us? We women of a certain age who have child-bearing hips and hover closer to the double digits in sizes need something that looks good too! How about this Gored Denim Skirt from Jones New York? It's a very flattering style for those of us with hips, and can work well with a sweater and boots, or ballet flats and a pretty tee. Plus, at only $69, it's a great buy.
If it's jeans you want, then it's jeans you shall have. With the ever growing selection available, there's a pair that's going to hug your curves in all the right places without making you look like a sausage stuffed into a too-tight casing. Remeber that trends are great - if they're appropriate for your body type. If not, move on and realize that not all trends are meant for everyone. What's going to make you look truly fab is a pair of jeans that fit you like a glove and make you feel like a million bucks! Go for something straight legged, whether they're high-rise, low-rise or somewhere in-between, what's key is finding what works for YOU!
These Straight Legged Dark Denim Jeans from Liz Claiborne come in black or an indigo wash and sit slightly below the waist, with room in the hip and thigh.
