Fashion tips from Designer Studio

Designer Studio was nice enough to comment onr Wide and Extra Wide Width Boot Sales blog of 8/17. They point out the trendy style of skinny cut jeans, suggesting if you cannot get into them, try the reverse. Try the equally trendy wide legged jeans or trousers with a short, snug jacket with high heels to go for the lean look.

I find Baby Phat has a wide assortment of Skinny Jeans in their Plus Size section under jeans. I like their Pacific Cat Skinny Jeans below, which come in sizes 14 to 24, with plus size size chart right next to the size selector!

Baby Phat also has skinny jeans in their sale section!

What if you are built like me with an inverted triangle shape? My waist is 38, hips 43, making me a Baby Phat full figure jeans size 18 and 14. So you order at the largest measurement, and still end up with a baggy backside. Or you could:

Leggings with tunics, loose, new trendy and classic suit jackets and cardigans already in your closet! I wear Silhouettes Legging, still $19 after all these years, just like they were the first time I brought them. My measurements make me a Silhouettes’ size XL or 16 waist with a 2X or 20 waist size. So I but their size 1XL and they fit fine!
These leggings come in black, chambray and heather grey in sizes XL to 3XL.
Leggings fit, with ease, into boots! Silhouettes’ boots are still available at pre-season sale prices!
Classic Leggings

Silhouettes has these stretch denim leggings below in average, petite and tall size ranges, in sizes 12W to 26W and in sizes 28W to 42W. These leggings come in colors black, lapis and magenta.

They have these matching scrunch boots, still on sale at $20 off in widths medium, wide and extra wide!
Strap-trimmed Scrunch Boot

There is also a matching suede slouch bag to go with all these. The boots and bag come in the exact same colors as the legging!

According to the Sept. 09 issue of Glamour magazine, page 226 - 227, the leggings as tights look, just do not wear them as pants, is great for women of all sizes!

Sound advice I recall, but not from where: Do not wear tunics, and I would have to assume, sweaters and jackets, whose hems fall where you are at your widest!

Silhouettes also has a wide variety of wide leg pants now, as well as some tapered leg pants too. If you like the closet cropped top and jacket with wide leg pants.

If your area shopping Silhouettes, be sure to take advantage of their money saving code in this page’s right column!

Thank you Designer Studio for your fashion suggestions! They also have designer accessories, but possibly not full figure fashions. I have not searched the whole site.
