9 Pairs of Plus-Size Jeans

If you're looking for an easy way to step up your style in the new year, start by shopping for a great pair of jeans. A wardrobe staple, jeans are a go-to item that can be dressed up or down and work for a variety of occasions. However, instead of opting for a classic pair of skinnies, try a pair of jeans with a bit more interest, like the plus-size options I've put together below.

Happy New Year

Plus Size Casual Outfit

Happy 2017! The horror that was 2016 is finally over and we're off to fresh start.  This year I actually decided to make a few resolutions - one of which is to shop less, but to choose well when I do shop.  Last year, I found myself getting far too excited by the newest arrivals at some of my favorite stores, particularly ASOS, and buying items without considering their usefulness in my wardrobe.  So, instead of online browsing every other day hoping to find something great, I've decided to shop my closet more and find uses for the items I already own. Today's look is a casual outfit comprised of many of my old favorites.

Holiday Spirit

Plus Size Holiday Outfit

The holiday season is finally in full swing.  So, to get into the spirit, I've been blasting my favorite Christmas songs and rocking some of my favorite holiday pieces, including this adorable red plaid skirt that I bought from ASOS. While plaid certainly isn't just for the holidays, I've always thought it looked particularly festive in red.

Plus-Size Alternatives for Holiday Dresses

While dresses tend to be the default for most holiday soirĂ©es, they are certainly not the only way to go.  Separates can be a great option. Opting for a great skirt, blouse, etc. gives you a bit more flexibility with your look and, depending on what you choose, you may be able to get a lot more wear out of a separate piece than a dress.
