Girl's Jeans Again - The Best Disguise!

I usually buy women's jeans at Wal-Mart - "LEI" brand, "Rider," "Signature," "Miss Tina," "Faded Glory," and others.  If I can get them in a 6T that works best.  But I need the length for most circumstances, so I get 8T if that is the smallest tall size.  I have some 4 & 6 Tall (Long) from other manufacturers that fit quite well.  In skinny jeans I can wear a regular because I either tuck them in boots or when the ankle is showing it is OK with heels & sandals.

Wal-Mart is usually my go-to place for jeans because they hit all the new trends early and immediately mark them down when sizes are depleted or a new fashion trend emerges.  They also do seasonal markdowns early.  Additionally, the reason they have few in my size (6T) is the same reason I often find them on the sale rack - fewer women in my area wear that size.   

I just bought 2 pair of low-rise, very tight, flared jeans with back pocket-flaps in size (junior) 7T.  They fit great and stretch so well.  They are absolutely skin-tight except for a slight flare at the hem.  They fit nicely over wedge or thong style sandals.  Some chunky heels even work occasionally.  Add a fashion belt, buckled on the side and I've got the twenty-something-girl look nailed.  The look is enhanced by one of my "Spanx" type shapewear singlets.  It brings in the actual waist nicely above the low-rise hip-huggers.  Top this with a stretch tee-shirt or tank and I can replicate a modified hourglass.  I wear them everywhere and do not worry about the fancy pocket designs.  If people are looking at my pockets, I'm not looking at them.

 

I've written this before, but when I dress androgynously, I often get more approving looks than disdainful.  I think that if you can get into these fashions and fill them, you look pretty fit.  Looking fit usually trumps the gender-mixing thing.  The high wedged shoes usually help with the filling out because of the lift. I can walk in them as easily as most girls & women.  They really don't have much more height than clogs.  I have little hope that we will win the dress-as-you-like battle soon, but I do think that androgyny can work well if we choose neat outfits that fit us, regardless of the gender disposition.

Faded Glory are my favorite jeans of all !! They fit and feel so much better than men's jeans ! Love your thigh boots ! Beautiful profile photo ! Stunning legs !!!! Would love to be in your circle of friends. Please add me. Thanks

You look wonderful. Wish I could get away with womans jeans - my legs are much too long for uk sizes...

I do the androgynous look most of the time. in the past year I have only one person say negative comments. And I must say you do look great! I wish walmart here sold extra long jeans.

Great look! I think your androgyny strategy is the right approach. I think it's easier for people to "swallow smaller bites" initially. Plus - you wear clothes that fit well and look good on you.
