If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times, you can easily avoid looking frumpy if you update your wardrobe every now and again with a trendy piece or two! This year there are so many great trends to love and try and some I’ll avoid (I’m lookin’ at you old, dirty sneakers!). Today I bring you the wide leg, cropped denim trend with a few ideas on how to style them.
Let me be clear: I ordered these on a whim and never thought I’d like them. They were part of my Prime Wardrobe and I figured what the heck. Even when I tried them on I thought I’d send them back. However, I got positive feedback (look, I’m easy…tell me I’m pretty or I look good and you guessed it – SOLD!) and thought maybe I could actually like this trend on me.
My body is pretty rectangular and I am short waisted. Being large chested with a tummy means that sometimes I look like I’m all boob – ya know? Initially I figured this trend would work best on someone taller and thinner. I played around and discovered some ways to style this trendy new denim in ways I love!
First up, I shared this flat lay on Friday.I jumped on stories to show how I wore it to bible study. I made a minor adjustment by adding my sock boots. I was comfortable and felt like this was an elevated way to wear jeans and a sweater.
I’ve also learned to never say never and that is certainly the case with bodysuits. I am on board! Here’s why: they lay flat at the waist without coming untucked, bunched up, etc. They really give a sleek look to my mid section that is honestly not sleek at all. I think this black turtleneck body suit is fantastic with the wide leg denim. When in doubt go volume on bottom and more fitted on top or vice versa!

While it’s cooler I am really enjoying bundling up (Florida style) and wearing boots or booties. But when the weather heats up I’ll be wearing my wedges with these jeans and absolutely loving the look! Dressed up or down by wearing these on trend jeans, I’m far from frumpy! More importantly I feel good in these clothes.
I suggest you try these wide leg, cropped denim jeans from Amazon. They are from the Daily Ritual brand and they are soft and fairly stretchy. The raw edge hem is a detail I absolutely love! I am wearing a size 27 but I honestly considered getting a smaller size so my suggestion is to size down. For reference I am 5’5″ and 137 pounds at the moment.
I can hardly wait to style these for spring! Are you a fan of this trend? Would you try it? My sweet curvy friends, while my denim is not available in plus sizes, here are some great options for you!
And now for something to get you super excited! How about a giveaway?
Have a marvelous Monday my friends!
