It is hard to believe that there was actually a time (aka…6 months ago) when I refused to wear jeans. I always thought they seemed too boring and could never be dressed up to match my style. Okay well, times have changed, and rather than hating on jeans, I am always on the hunt to try new brands. Soon enough you will be able to call me a jean expert.
I recently welcomed a new jean brand into my closet. I had always heard of Lucky Brand (available at Macys), but I actually didn’t think that they would carry plus size jeans. I decided to try them and style a weekend casual look…with a sprinkle of Hayet in there.
To style them, I paired the deconstructed skinny jeans with an army green jacket also from Lucky Brand. What I loved about the look was not only the comfort, but the fact that it had this chic vibe to it, which is kinda where I am evolving to.
Now here is the deal on the jeans.
I ordered an 18 because I always like to size up when I try new jeans. They fit pretty well when I first got them, and they even broke in a bit after that, so truthfully I could have done with a 16.
These hugged my curves really nicely. The waistband was high enough that I didn’t feel like it was cutting my tummy in half, and it had great support.
These are pretty thick jeans and are bound to last for a long time. I admit I haven’t thrown them in the washer yet so I would need to update you on that when I re-style them.
Now here is the fun part. I am partnering with Lucky Brand to give you a head start on spring style by giving away you a $250 Macy’s gift card as part of the Lucky You Sweepstakes. All you have to do is head over to the Who What Wear page (linked here), and follow the steps to enter. The even better news is that there will be four winners chosen, so you have a great chance of actually winning.
