How to Look Good in Skinny Jeans if You Are Curvy

Every girl’s loyal best friend, yet deadly enemy is looking good in skinny jeans. So take these tips if you please, oh and please do.


  1. When buying skinny jeans always make sure they are dark, for example a navy or black perhaps.   Are black jeans back in style?  Really?  Why?
  2. Buy them a bit long as it will balance out your figure and make chunky legs appear longer.   “A bit long” on someone 5 feet tall like myself is the understatement of the year.
  3. Opt for a pair of killer heels as they lengthen legs and flatter your posterior. A nice pair of ballet pumps will do but, heels are better.   If you can’t walk in them, keep them at home.
  4. Wear them with a loose fitting top as they’ll flatter your tummy and you won’t have the muffin top effect.   Note to self:  muffin top is out.  Darn.
  5. Wearing longer tops or tunics will also add to the flattering effect.   Again, unless the long top comes to your knees when it should go to your hips.  Trust me.
  6. Most importantly have self-confidence and let boys know it doesn’t matter if you have a few extra pounds.   That’s right!  Chubby kids can squeeze into tight jeans too!


  • Do wear stilettos, sexy girl.  Work it girlfriend!  (insert snappy fingers here)
  • Look for bargain jeans at primark. and H&M.  I had to Google Primark.  Its across the pond, and amazingly carries the same outfit I plan to wear to my next office function. 



  • Don’t wear them with flip flops, you’re not Russell Brand. It may look good on his puny legs but, it just doesn’t work.   Again, I had to Google.  I’m still not sure who he is, but he appears to be a bit creepy.  Here’s his website.  I couldn’t get a good look at his legs to confirm or deny if they look good in skinny jeans with flip flops.
  • Please don’t go anorexic to fit in to those jeans. Just eat healthy, exercise and always remember who you are.   While this is true, I wonder if Oprah wrote this wikiHow.  Its sounds like something she would say.

    I don’t really think it is, Jane. Unless my definition of curvy is different than wikiHow’s.

    I think curvy just means the 2″ differnece between your 18″ waist and 20″ hips.
