Dress Your Curves: Plus Size Denim TrendsMonique Frausto
I’m curvy and proud. Yes, I wear plus sizes, am in love with fashion, and I want to wear the latest trends my way. This week on “Dress Your Curves,” it’s all about plus size denim trends. Just for the record, I wear denim all the time and couldn’t imagine my life without it. Now, back to the post…
Denim has become a staple in our lives. Since Levi’s constructed the first pair of blue jeans in 1873, the fashion world has never looked back. I know it’s durability and versatility has made it a popular piece of clothing in my closet. I can practically pair them with anything—dressed up or down.
This summer there are some plus size denim trends that have really caught my eye —nine denim trends to be exact. I will tell you there is one trend I’m seeing alot, but not in the plus size fashion world, it’s high-waisted denim. I’m bummed no one is making it for us curvy ladies. It’s seriously their loss!
Instead enjoy the plus size denim trends they are making for us! Which one is your favorite?
THE BOYFRIEND JEAN 1 of 9
Ironically, men are wearing slimmer cut jeans and now the relaxed and distressed denim is on trend. Go figure! No worries. ASOS Curve knows that the "boyfriend jean" is a trend that can be worn by anyone. The New Look Inspire Ripped Boyfriend Jean is a perfect fit for those curves. Throw them on with a tank top or graphic tee!

Denim dresses are all over the place right now. You'll find them in a range of styles and washes—from light to dark. I personally love this MICHAEL Michael Kors Plus Light Weight Denim Dress. It would go perfect with a pair of fun wedges or tribal inspired jewelry and accessories.

Are you ready for printed denim? It's here whether you like it or not. And you'll find a wide range of prints and styles to choose from. From skinnies and shorts to skirts! These super chic Swiss Dot Denim Capris are from Ashley Stewart and would look great with a sheer flowing top.

EMBELLISHED DENIM SHORTS 8 of 9
Denim shorts will always and forever be on trend in the spring and summer, it's just the little touches that make them stand out. And I'm all for the embellishment trend that's here. Lucky Brand's (Plus) Ginger Aztec Cross Shorts are a perfect example without going overboard on the embellishment. Perfect with a ribbed tank and a pair of your favorite sandals.

Ahhhhh...don't you love the smell of the 90's? It looks like overalls, a.k.a. dungarees, are making their comeback. ASOS CURVE's Exclusive Denim Dungarees just made me have a flash back. I wonder if I still have a pair in my closet somewhere?
