The Wide Leg Pant

2011 trends are all over the map. from colors (white and blue and pink and … the list is long) to hair (grungy? elegant? those go together?) but one thing is for sure – the wide leg pant is definitely back. that’s GREAT for plus size and curvy women because a pant that bells out from the top will elongate your leg. so, where can you score amazing wide leg pants that you will wear for the rest of the year? check out my picks, below! i’ll definitely be picking up the ones in the center.

Anthropologie for the Big Girl


i love love loooove lurve a lot of things at anthropologie. but … i can’t wear most of the things that they sell. curves and chaos, who has some style that i also seriously love, has tipped me off to a line called ruche that offers some romantic looking pieces. some pieces that look similar to what you might find at anthropologie. the plus stuff in their line comes in up to 3X, and … it’s affordable. exciting!!

here are my picks:

i wish this wasn’t sold out. and i REALLY wish that they would sell this piece again. it’s $35.99, and it’s lovely. not only is the print great, but there are pockets! YEE! i love a pocket. please ruche, bring this one back for a second round.

definitely anthropologie-esque. and i love that it’s jersey – that means comfy and you can ball it up in a suitcase, if that’s your packing style. another deal at $42.99. it’s purple, empire-waisted, and sweet with the lace trim.

hello lace and ruffles! this dress is $32.99, and it would be adorable come spring. you could also get away with some tights and boots with this one. great for a date or the office, me thinks!

so, which pieces do they have in straight size that i wish were in plus? here’s a round-up:

humor us ruche. give us more.
