Can I wear skinny, or straight jeans at my size?

I am 5'5 at 160lbs, I have big butt hips n thighs and I want to know if I can pull of the skinny or straight leg jeans tucked into boots? I really love the look, but Im not so sure it would look good on me.

  • The only suggestions I think I would have, is to get a pair of the dark blue denim and if you can wear them, or if your boots have them, go for higher heel boots, they add height to you.

    But when it really comes down to it...Where what makes YOU feel good.. Quit worrying about what others think.. Remember.. it's all about self confidence.. : )

  • Sure but the trick is to wear a longer loose fitting top so your butt/thighs/hips don't look like they're a sausage about to burst in the microwave! I'm about your size and they look awesome with a tunic or loose top that covers my butt. Tight tops and this look at our size, not so much!
