We thought this would be the perfect week to treat you to some of our ideas for maximizing fall fun, while at the same time giving you some tricks for staying stylish during every activity.

VISIT A FALL FESTIVAL

Fall festivals are always a fun way to expose yourself to some down home, local flavor and an excellent excuse to indulge in those carbohydrate rich treats we do not allow ourselves anywhere else; can you say funnel cakes and deep fried oreo’s? When venturing into a haunted house, perusing a pumpkin patch, or opting for amusement park pandemonium one thing is for sure; comfort is key. You can’t go wrong in a chic pair of skinnies, a cozy sweater, and ankle boots to keep you warm, also this outfit makes it easy to outrun any ghosts or ghouls that may cross your path.

DENIM JEANS TO FIT YOUR FIGURE

denim jean fashion to fit your figure

The denim jean has always been Fall and Winter’s “go to” pant style. With this Season’s many different styles, lengths, and shapes, which jean fashion looks best on you? First, determine your body shape. Are you petite or tall? Curvy or athletic? Whilst there is no standard silhouette, you can choose a denim style that will fit and flatter your figure, accentuating your strengths and hiding your flaws to present the perfect you. We here at Posh at Play want you to start every day looking and feeling your best. So take a look at our top denim choices for each figure and start shopping your body shape’s style.

skinny jeans for petite figures

SKINNIES FOR PETITE FRAMES

Lengthen your legs and strut your style in a pair of skinnies for petite figures. Since shorter frames can sometimes appear stocky with too much embellishment, sleek skinny jeans will streamline your look. Go simple with Hudson’s Collin skinny jeans paired with your favorite button down blouse and sweater. Lengthen your line with Vince Camuto’s ankle strap pumps in “Sugar Plum” suede and a chic “blush” handbag from Kate Spade. Carry your skinnies into the evening hours with Hudson’s Nico skinny jeans topped with Hale Bob’s red silk button down and black leather sandals from Sam Edelman for perfect holiday style. Or go for a bit of Seasonal color in Hudson’s “Bordeaux” skinny jeans, a trending color this year. For petite figures, the full length skinny jean is your best “go to” denim look.

cropped wide leg jeans for boyish figures

CROPPED WIDE LEG FOR BOYISH FIGURES

Characterized by narrow waist and hips, boyish figures look great in this Season’s newest denim trend. The slouchy wide leg cropped jeans hang nicely on bodies that have straight hips and thighs, emphasizing your boyish shape. We like Citizen’s of Humanity’s relaxed Dylan cropped jeans paired with Liberty Garden’s cropped menswear sweater and Topshop’s bright red suede buckle booties. For a more streamlined look, we also like Rachel Comey’s high waisted light wash wide leg denim jeans paired with Hale Bob’s sleek Utilitarian turtleneck in jade or black and Michael Kors’ chic crossbody bag. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your jeans with Hale Bob’s sleek black lace bodysuit and bright red clutch from Hobo. However you choose to accessorize, boyish frames be sure to include this year’s trendy wide leg cropped style into your wardrobe collection.

bootcut jeans for tall figures

BOOTCUT JEANS FOR TALL FIGURES

For those lucky gals blessed with long limbs, a bootcut shape is your best bet. Snug through the hips and thighs, and opening into a bell shaped bottom, this jean style fits and flatters your lovely long silhouette. We love Hudson’s Signature bootcut jeans with a mid rise waistline perfect for any occasion. You will also love Hudson’s Beth Baby bootcut jeans as well with extra long cuffs. Pair your look with any of Hale Bob’s solid or printed sheer blouses, from the bright yellow floral print to the baby blue silk chiffon or the black satin lace to the ivory silk Charmeuse for dressier occasions.

rolled cropped jeans for tall women

Tall girls also have the option of rolling jean cuffs for a trendy modern look. The shorter cuffs extend the line and make legs look even longer. So don’t worry if you can’t find long enough jeans to fit your body. Simply roll the cuffs of your favorite pair of denim, throw on a classic trench from Ann Taylor, accessorize with a snug striped cashmere sweater from Burberry and step out in style this Winter.

flare jeans for curvy figures

FLARE JEANS FOR CURVY FIGURES

Curvy figures have no fear. We have the perfect jean cut to accentuate and flatter your feminine frame. Flare jeans with an open cuff below help balance out wider hips and thighs and are the perfect compliment to your physic. Go with this Season’s trendy “Boho” look in Hudson’s light wash Ferris flap pocket flare paired with Free People’s lace flyaway tunic or  Liberty Garden’s black lace babydoll shift dress. Complete your look with one of Hale Bob’s colorful rabbit fur vests, leather clogs from Steve Madden, Free People’s fringe Hobo bag, and rag & bone’s floppy brim fedora. If “Boho” isn’t quite your style, top your flares with Liberty Garden’s trendy blush pink long sleeve Tee and sneakers or go with the cozy fur trimmed cable knit sweater and Alfani’s fur lined ankle booties on chilly Winter nights.

wide leg jean style

WIDE LEG JEANS FOR ANY FIGURE

Lastly, our favorite denim trend this Season that fits and flatters any figure is the wide leg jean. Roomy enough to accommodate every waistline and versatile for any occasion, be sure to include this pant into your wardrobe collection for Winter. We love AC Collection’s variety of wide leg styles paired perfectly with one of Hale Bob’s silk chiffon blouses and UGG’s water resistant fur trimmed wedge booties for everyday style. Carry your look to the office and top with Hale Bob’s black Bolero jacket and black pumps from Charles David. For perfect holiday style, accessorize your wide leg jeans with Ralph Lauren’s Christmas red turtleneck sweater, Kate Spade’s pointy toe pump, and a vintage Christmas tree handbag from Boston Inventory.
