So I like to stay abreast of the fashion happenings…but I also realize that not all trends are right for me. I am a street size 16/18 and I keep wanting to try a pair of skinny leg jeans (with flats or to tuck into boots). I just don’t know if I should go there…. Will it be completely disproportionate to my “full figured” butt/hip/thigh region? Or, paired correctly with the right longer length top, will it look fashionable and effortless?
What do you ladies size 16 and up think? Do you wear skinny jeans? If so, how do you style them? All help and suggestions appreciated!

I’m usually about a size 8 and I personally stay away from “skinny jeans.” I have a booty and large thighs, so I feel like that type of jean doesn’t look right on my curvy bottom half…but that’s mostly just a personal preference.

Every time I see a big girl in skinny jeans I die a little bit inside.

Honestly, I’m pretty petite and I don’t like the way I look in skinny jeans. I’ll only wear them with boots, just ’cause they’re the easiest to tuck in. Beyond that I don’t wear them. But I will say I’ve seen women of ALL SIZES who look hawt in skinny jeans! They’re just not for me. 🙂

I just hate skinny jeans in general. I don’t care who is wearing them and what size they are. All I can think of is little emo boys with eyeliner. And bum cracks. Every person who I see wears them..I also get the nice addition of seeing them bums…EWWW.

I personally don’t like the way I look in skinny jeans if I wear them with flats or heels – my hips are big already, and it makes them look more so. However, I wear them tucked into all my boots because I hate the bunched-up knee look you get with any other type of jeans.

I wear a size 8 in pants and I hate the way I look in skinny jeans. I prefer a wide leg trouser to balance out my hips. However, I have seen them look totally fab. Have you seen the tv show Glee? The character Mercedes (she’s the african american girl in the choir) is quite curvy and she has rocked some skinny jeans on the show. They look amazing on her. Wish they looked that good on me.

It depends on your proportions. It’s not really the booty or the thighs that make skinny jeans look awful (personally I don’t see the point of wearing them if you don’t have SOME curves to show off) but the gut gets me. I have a gut so I am NOT trying to put that on display. I tend to go for trouser cut jeans personally. I have seen plus size girls rock the skinny jeans and look darn good in them…but they had the right proportions IMO to wear them. They are not for me though.

I said maybe… you can definitely find a nice cut but it takes some searching. But at the same time, I don’t really think that skinny jeans are the only option

I’m a street size 8/10, and I wear skinny/straight jeans with boots or flats if I have the right top on. Usually something longer and flowy to cover the hip/butt region. I really like Old Navy’s Diva straight-legged jeans. They’re not as fitted on the bottom as skinny jeans, but are still really easily tucked into boots and look really cute with flats (and they’re only $30 I believe).

I’ve seen so many women rock skinny jeans with boots, and not all of them were a size 6. Check out J. Hud:

I’m pretty thin and my bf makes fun of me and says I look like I have skinny chicken legs…so I definitely have to be careful not to get them to tight or to skinny ha I think they can be pulled off by bigger girls just not so tight is all.

I thought I’d never wear them. But after going to Chicago and seeing all the stylish ladies with their skinny jeans tucked into snowboots, I thought differently. I like the look where you wear the jeans with a long sweater or something to hide your stomach area. I would try that.

I’m a street size 8/10 with lots of butt and thighs. I own a pair and I love them. I wear them with little flats, tucked into my boots or with a pair of heels. I think their pretty versatile. I hated them for a long time and then found a pair really cheap (Like, $2) and decided to take the plunge.

I’m a street size 16/18 and I never thought to rock skinny jeans till I grabbed a pair at the store on accident. Mr. Holiday was in the dressing room when I thought i was putting on bootcuts…imagine my surprise! I got them on and was like no way.. and Mr. Holiday was like oH yeah we are buying those in every color.
Now I do rock skinny jeans and I’ve worn them with tunics, long tanktops and a blazer (my fave look) and since I just got my first pair of flat boots I’ve been rocking them ALL the time with my skinny jeans! Mr. Holiday’s fave new look on me 🙂
