James Jeans Neo Beau Z (Plus)
These classic boyfriend jeans from the James Jeans brand deliver the weekend vibe of a vintage wash and distressed details, in a modern jeans construction. Comfortably relaxed through thighs to hems, the Neo Beau Z is crafted in a soft denim fabric that’s easy to wear. With a 29″ inseam, these jeans make an attractive cropped jean with clean hems. Or roll the cuffs for a trendy look. You’ll also appreciate the high rise in the back, which — along with perfectly placed back pockets — helps to lift the look of your rear end.

This jean features a slim leg opening that works with any heel height and a classic five-pocket, zip-fly design.
It also features a medium rise in the front that helps to hold in your middle, with a higher waistband in the back for full coverage and figure flattery. NYDJ suggests buying their jeans one size smaller than your usual, to get the perfect fit.

Levi’s 512 Perfectly Shaping Boot Cut Jeans (Plus Size)
Levi‘s Shaping series of jeans are designed to help streamline a larger figure while offering modern style. Smart features, including a secret tummy-shaping panel, a high amount of elastane for stretch, and careful back pocket placement work together to create an all-over smoothing effect on curves. The bootcut design works well to balance a wider behind and hips, while a high mid-rise in front contains a bigger tummy.
This jean is available in blue, but we like it best in slimming black.
Sizes: Up to 24
Try Wearing Them With: A long tailored blazer and a simple top.
Silver Jeans Suki Mid-Rise Bootcut Jean (Plus Size)
Silver Jeans is a denim designer that focuses particularly on the plus size market. We love how the touch of flare and contrast stitching of this jean make it right on-trend for this spring’s love affair with 70s denim. These comfortable, stretchy denim jeans feature a flattering overall fit and a mid-rise waistband to help you avoid muffin-top issues. The Suki is part of the Curvy Fit category, ideal for women with accentuated curves, or a well-defined waist to hip ratio and a naturally curvy feminine build.
Available both in dark indigo and a lighter, vintage-inspired wash.
Sizes: Up to 24
Try Wearing Them With: A flowered blouse and big sunglasses.
Lane Bryant Genius Fit Distressed Straight Leg Jean (Plus Size)
Many plus-sized women shop Lane Bryant for jeans, having discovered the brand’s commitment to denim fits that flatter real bodies. Their clever Genius Fit denim line features super-stretch denim technology that conforms to your shape, smooths curves and offers great flexibility. We love this particular plus-size straight leg jean for its cool, distressed details and the way it makes a boxy shape look feminine while offering more flattery than a skinnier leg shape.
Sizes: Up to 28
Try Wearing Them With: A lightweight sweater and platform sandals.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Denim Leggings (Plus Size)
These soft, stretchy denim leggings from the MICHAEL Michael Kors brand are designed to flatter a plus-size figure. A mid-rise waistband works to pull in your middle, while an ingenious high-rise in the back helps to minimize your behind. Meanwhile, the stylish dark wash with gold contrast top-stitching and slim (but not tight) fit through the legs is stylish and helps to slim a larger silhouette.
Sizes: Up to 24
Try Wearing Them With: A tunic top or billowy blouse, and gladiator sandals.
