I confess: I'm not much of a jeans-and-tee kind of girl. Don't get me wrong — I covet the effortless sex appeal of Brooke Shields in her Calvins and the gamine charm of Audrey Hepburn's cigarette-cut denim. But for so long, curvy girls like me have been relegated to safe pairs of dark-washed boot-cuts. Bo-ring!

But lately I've been impressed to see the season's hottest denim trends — like floral and rockabilly — make their way to the plus-size labels. They pair with just about anything and will carry you through the weekend, from Friday happy hour to Sunday brunch with friends. Check out my top picks, and tweet me (@Nicolette Mason) your favorite looks!
