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.
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.
This Fall season denim has no limits. There are a myriad of styles for us curvy girls to try, ranging from the new biker styles to the distressed skinny’s. Are you still buying those same old bootcut jeans just to play it safe? Then stop it! Have some fun with your jeans and get out of that bootcut rut. Don’t get me wrong, bootcut is a flattering fit to just about any figure, but, who wants 5 pairs of bootcut jeans in their closets. SC has decided to pick out a few jean trends to help you get started on your denim shopping.

Ahh, the boyfriend, a summer favorite. This trend looks great on a curvy figure. Dress it up with a blazer and some super sexy heels or dress it down with a pair of super cute flats and a fitted tee.
I like to call this jean a curvy girl’s best friend. It just hugs the curves in a sexy and alluring way. Contrary to popular belief, skinny jeans are not just for skinny people.
This by far is one of my favorite trends. I love the biker style jeans. So many brands are making great knockoffs from Balmain’s collection. This is a trend to definitely try. It will bring your inner bad ass out.
Jeans in the middle are from City Chic
3rd pair of jeans are from Wet Seal
Many curvy girl’s are scared of this trend because they think it will not look good on them especially if you carry most of your weight in the middle. Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs to find your prince and that saying goes for the high waisted jean.

Jeggings are the newest item to have in your closet. They are super comfortable which can make them a crutch for some of us. This summer the streets were flooded with curvy girls all over the world rocking jeggings with tunics and tees.
