Historically speaking, jeans shopping has been a particularly fraught event for plus-size girls. Luckily, as brands (slowly) catch on to the idea that women sizes 12 and up deserve to look good too, we now have nearly as diverse a range of style options as our straight-size sisters. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best on the market, from super skinnies to funky flares.
Basic Blue Skinny Jeans
Lucky Brand Plus Ginger Cropped Skinny Jeans
This well-reviewed pair goes with everything.
“Boyfriend” Jeans, No Dudes Required
Kut from the Kloth Distressed Boyfriend Jeans
Slouchy without being sloppy, and distressed without being shredded.
Some Just Slightly Fancy Slacks
High Rise Wide Leg Denim Pant
Wear these elegant belted trousers for casual Friday.
Dark, Destroyed Denim
City Chic Rock ‘n’ Roll Destroyed Skinny Jeans
Pairs nicely with a killer cropped biker jacket (they make those in plus-sizes now, too!)
A Bright White Pair
Melissa McCarthy Seven7 Pencil Ankle Jean

A Leg-Lengthening Pair
Rebel Wilson x Angels The Looker Jeans
Seams running down the front of each leg will make you look crazy tall. Your standard step hem could never.
