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.
