Finding a great pair of jeans can be extremely difficult – especially if you
have a big ass are a curvy lass like me.
I have lumps and bumps in all the wrong places.
Places that I would prefer not to have them, but hey-ho, they’re ALL mine 😉
Skinny snug jeans definitely work better for the junk-in-my-trunk.
If they are to lose, they add bulk – something I truly don’t need anymore of!
So lovelies, do you want to know one of the places I look when it comes to finding a great pair of jeans?
I always check out which jeans Sonia has on high-rotation.
Yes its a FACT.
For some spooky reason – when that girls chooses jeans for herself, without knowing, she is inadvertently choosing them for me too.
How good is that?
Yep, then denim she invests in always seems to work for me.
Plus we all know she has fabulous taste – so I’m a very happy gal.
Note: I’m by no means comparing my butt to hers, I can confirm, not only is she a total stunner IRL, she is also teeny tiny with a great little bod.
My first pair of Sonia copy-cat jeans were from Katies – I have literally worn them to death. Yep. they are still high on my go-to list over a year later.
Its happened again.
Hello Feather and Noise jeans – courtesy of Sonia Syling of course – I can take no credit for finding these babies 😉
I’m using these jeans as my outfit anchor and styling them three ways.
All classic. All me.

I wanted to keep the colour palette neutral and just mix up the accessories and styles.
Look One: Adding a blazer.
This combination is me to a T.
My true comfort zone.
Firstly let’s just discuss the anchor piece: The Jeans.
Fit wise they are true to size.
The size 12 are snug on me (just how I like them) but not uncomfortable. They relax off nicely too, not to the point of becoming baggy, just relaxed.
You probably feel the same as me when it comes to wearing lighter denim – it can be a complete no no for anyone with a curvy butt and thighs, but these seem to work fine on my ass 😉
Jeans, tee, jacket and heels sums up everything I love in an outfit.
Comfort and style – packaged with a big gorgeous bow of understated elegance.
I’m balancing out the toughness of the jeans with a classic DJ style black jacket.
This one nips in beautifully at the back, which is perfect for slimming down the torso in all the right places.
Adding a loser top underneath adds interest and flow under a shapely jacket…it also disguises any hint of middle age muffin top!
Look Two: Cold Shoulder
The minute I noticed this top arrive at Country Road, it just had to be mine.
I pictured it with denim and a tan heel (plus Beckie’s Mulberry of course – which I’m trying not to photograph with every single outfit I wear).
There is something quite sexy about the design.
It’s so much more than a tee, but less than a formal blouse.
The touch of bare shoulder is very elongating and slimming when paired-back with a skinny jean.
Adding the tan gladiators lent easily towards gold accessories too.
This outfit would could take you almost anywhere, but especially out for a lunch date or early evening drinks.
Look Three: Flutter Sleeve Top
This soft and floaty look sits right on the edge of my comfort zone.
Although I’m totally a girly girl when it comes to hair and beauty, I don’t very often stray too far towards floaty when it comes to my clothes.
I suppose my classic style personality is mostly conservative.
I love that it’s different to the norm for me though.
But pulling this look off, is all about balance.
You need to counteract the floaty-ness with a skinny leg (I’m talking about the jeans and not my thighs 😉 ).
It would be so easy to avoid this top just because you have a fuller bust, I say give it a try. Just make sure you counteract the volume with slim fitting pants/jeans.
Please excuse the different image sizes on the slideshow…the battery ran out on my SLR so I swapped to my Olympus (which was set on square and I didn’t know how to change it!
So tell me beauties, do you love your denim as much as I do? Got a favourite pair?
