I’ve been wanting to try the floral jean trend for a while now. If you are a curvy girl like me, looking for jeans with the perfect fit is hard enough without throwing prints and patterns into the mix. I unexpectedly came across these fantastic floral skinnies at JCP. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on and they fit perfectly over my hump (my derrière)! Although I do like the cuff jean look, eventually I think I will raise up the hem to create an ankle length. (I get a lot of things altered. You will see how a little tailoring can go a long way.) I paired it with a loose fit chiffon blouse from F21+ and nude sandals from ShoeDazzle (both no longer available).
Some curvy ladies might be hesitant to try such a bold pattern on the lower half of their frame, especially when the fashion world encourages us to stick to wearing black A-line silhouettes. So with that I encourage you to be big, bold & beautiful. Every body is beautiful, so go ahead and experiment with color, prints, textures, patterns and the like. Oh, and don’t forget to rock whatever you wear with the must have accessory — CONFIDENCE! It will always be in style and it will always look good on you.
