Being both tall and curvy can make finding clothes that fit well a bit of a journey. Luckily, I’ve been dressing myself for years so I’ve figured out what works and what doesn’t. When my friend Lauren, of LMents of Style, texted me about this new series, I squinted at my phone. I believe the first thing I said was, “I’m not a fashion blogger, Lauren! But I guess I know how to dress myself.”
Style for Every Body is a new, monthly series were four local bloggers dish how we dress for our body types. Each of us rock different body shapes from petite and slim, to tall and curvy!
The first thing we’re covering are jeans. In my opinion, they’re one of the hardest things to shop for because everyone is so different. Once you find a good brand and fit, you probably stick with it, right? Well I’m going to introduce you to the ladies and let you see what their picks are, but first let’s start with my fav!
Look, it me!
Favorite Jeans – Madewell Taller Curvy High-rise Skinny Jeans
Favorite place to shop denim – Madewell
Size – Taller 34
Body Type – Tall, Curvy
Height – 5’11”
I chose these jeans for a few reasons. Because I have a big belly, I love a good high-waist. This one fits right up to the smallest part of my torso, emphasizing my hourglass figure. On top of that, they’re long enough for a tall girl like me. I love Madewell jeans because they have a variety of inseams. I wear the “Taller” option which is perfect for my height. They leave me looking lifted and blessed in the butt department because they fit tight, while still staying stretchy.
