In continuation with SC’s denim series I wanted to share with you this month’s magazine feature which comes from Essence.
I have four favorite stylist’s and Lloyd Boston is one of my faves. In the August issue of Essence he helps a few women with different body types find the right pair of jeans for their bodies. One of the women is plus size super model Mia Amber Davis. I know there are a few curvy girls who don’t like to be given advice on how to dress their curves, but, I don’t think there is anything wrong with taking heed to a few tips.
Lloyd helps model/actress Amber find jeans that fit her ample booty without showing her crack (Sorry! No other way to say this). He also helps model Sharail find a pair of jeans that fit her waist and offers tummy control.
Mia is wearing CJ by Cookie Johnson’s Faith Straight Leg jean and Sharail is wearing Not Your Daughters Marilyn Jean.
A few months back I did a post on CJ by Cookie Johnson jeans and at that time they only went up to a size 16/18. Now they have added a plus line.
Checkout more CJ looks. You can purchase CJ by Cookie Johnson at Bloomingdales
Not Your Daughter’s jeans has also stepped up their wash game and fit. The styles have been updated and are worth checking out. They can also be purchased at Bloomingdales

All jeans average about $150.



Hey curvy girls:

I signed up to be a guest blogger for the fabulous Boutique Larrieux’s blog. This month’s post is dedicated to shorts. I know so many curvy girls who are afraid to wear shorts and stick to capri’s or bermudas out of fear of showing their legs. The post offers you a few options besides bermudas to help you find the right pair of shorts for your curvy body.

My favorite pair this summer is culottes. I thought I would never hear that word again since the 90’s. I’m ordering a pair from Torrid.

Hey curvy girls,
Either love them or hate them. Denim shorts are back this season and celebrities are getting in on the trend. Denim shorts are nothing new for summer, but, this season celebrities like Beyonce have been seen all over town rocking them dressed up and dressed down. Stylish Curves is here to show you how to rock this trend for your curvy frame.

While I am not a fan of everything Beyonce wears, I must say there are a few notes to take away from her denim shorts look. (You don’t have to go as short as Beyonce)

1) Pair your denim shorts with a blazer and sexy heels for a great evening look to hang out with the girls.

2) For those warm summer days, an oversized off the shoulder t-shirt is a great option for a more comfortable look. For a little flavor add a fedora to jazz up your look.

3) For accessories, try a pair of hoop earrings with the t-shirt or a multi layered necklace to rock with the blazer.

4) Worried about cellulite stopping you from trying out this trend? I know a few people who have tried Nivea’s cellulite cream and they say it works wonders for unsightly cellulite.
