Personal Shopper: Size 16 tall skinny jeans for Jennifer

Jennifer wrote, "Hi Outblush! I'm always so impressed with the things you find on your personal shopper requests, I thought I'd give mine a shot. I'm looking for a pair of 'skinny' jeans that I can wear inside my knee high boots. The boots are awesome and I really want to show them off. The problem is, I'm not exactly skinny. I wear a size 16 Tall and I can't find any that fit, most are so tight you end up looking like a street walker :-( Any suggestions you might have would be awesome! Thanks! -jennifer"

Hey, Jennifer, Janetor here... I'd recommend, when you buy skinny jeans (if you're buying online) buy both your size and the next size up & trying them both on. Why? Going just 1 size up can eliminate the whole sotightcan'tbreatheomfg issue with skinny jeans, while still giving you a narrow enough leg opening to wear with boots. Enjoy the five picks below, and let me know which ones you like!

1. Source of Wisdom Virtual Stretch Grey Skinny Jeans ($52)
2. Ann Taylor Tall Denim Modern Skinny Jean ($88)
3. Old Navy The Diva Skinny Jeans ($30, 3 rinses)
4. Avenue Tall Divine Denim Skinny Jean ($20 on sale, 4 rinses)
5. Avenue Tall Divine Denim Straight Leg Jean ($35, 2 rinses)

Oh, eff off. Anyone can wear anything they want, so long as it's fitted correctly and they feel good in it!

Dude, "skinny jeans" are a cut of jeans. What's your deal? It has nothing to do with the actual size of the wearer. Boot cut/flare jeans are nigh unto impossible to shove into a pair of boots.

I personally wear old navy's skinny jeans, the diva is the one one that goes high enough so that I don't flash everyone my butt when I bend over. The stretch is always a plus as well.
