If you’ve been following me for a while or know me in real life, than you know I rarely ever wear jeans. I’ve actually never really loved them and hate the way 99% of jeans fit. That being said, it shouldn’t come as a shock to know I only own ONE pair. After having the same pair of jeans for over a year I can confidently say that they are my all-time favorite. I’ve always needed a high waist jean that hugs me in all the right places and doesn’t cut me in unflattering places (muffin tops are only good on muffins). I discovered Good American jeans after reading rave reviews and seeing them on actual real, curvy women and not just ones that are a size 2. This style fit that I love is the Good Legs in Black and even though the price tag is high ($149), they are one thousand percent worth the investment. If you sign up for their email list you can save 15% on your first order, shipping is free and they allow free returns.
I love layering and wearing jackets or blazers over just about anything. Fun prints like this animal print blazer easily dress up an outfit for a more polished look. It’s also very lightweight and can be worn year round here in the South. Under the blazer I wore my favorite black bodysuit from True & Co. Now let me tell you why this look can work for ANY body type. Dressing in the same stand-alone, one color-blocked garment creates a long column that draws the eye vertically, making you appear longer and leaner. Adding a blazer also brings out your waist and creates a flattering curve. Be sure to choose a blazer that doesn’t have a lot of excess fabric, which creates unnecessary bulk. Avoid blazers that are too boxy or too long; these fits will hide your shape.
Happy weekend, friends! xo
