Curvy women are probably familiar with the following problem: most skinny or low-rise jeans off the rack weren’t made with you in mind. Ankle-length pants might also be a no-go if your legs are particularly short in relation to your body, according to general styling consensus.
Fortunately, more and more brands seem to be making plus-size versions of nearly all the different styles/cuts, including skinny jeans! So, you have more choices to play with.
Another common approach is to accentuate the upper body, or wear a pair of high-waisted, relaxed pants.
If the above applies to you, then hey, guess what? LittlePinkTop curated several smart looks that will harmonize your silhouette. The objective was to create neat, clean, and sharp outfits that are office-appropriate and suitable for client meetings as well as happy hour drinks after work.

Straight, relaxed pants look flattering on stouter legs because they don’t squeeze too much. A straight cut hides the thighs and balances the proportions of the legs. This pair of black pants has a clean silhouette and comes in multiple plus sizes: from 0X to 3X.
To create a bold look, pick a black shirt; it will match the pants and the color tends to have a slimming effect.
One pleased reviewer posted that it’s “so stylish with a real New York flair.”
It’s also belted, so you can tie it at the waist and create an hourglass-like silhouette.
Jewelry is an excellent way to bring the upper body into focus. You can go for your favorite statement jewelry here or a sleeker option, like this pyramid-shaped pendant.
You don’t want to look boring, so your shoes should be fun. How do you achieve that? Add some color!
The reddish-brown leather of these semi-open shoes from Camper will introduce some color, while the black, mostly rubber sole will match the previous choices. This pair also has pronounced square toes, which are becoming trendy, and confident block heels.
A stylish and timeless black bag from Coach could complete this look.
It’s an elegant and classy bag that will serve you for years! The turn-lock closure is shaped in the company’s classic “C.” It also zips in the center, so you don’t need to constantly check if all your belongings are still yours.
So now we know that dark colors like black have a slimming effect. Flare pants typically flatter curves because they conceal thick calves.

With a classy pair of pants like that, go for a white top with an unusual design to stand out a bit.
This sleeveless white top has a soft wave around the neck which adds a creative touch. It will definitely draw attention to the upper body.
