Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Plus-sized Denim

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Christy requested a few picks for colorful plus-sized denim, so here we go:

American Rag Pull-On Skinny Jeans – was $45, now $39.99

I’m so excited to be able to include these. I just purchased two pairs of pull-on skinnies from Macy’s myself and I don’t care if they sound odd. I ADORE them. Comfortable, close-fitting, and none of the fuss and protruding buttonage that comes with a traditional fly. This American Rag version looks even bolder and more saturated that my own, and would look fabulous with a cozy fall tunic. Available in sizes 0X – 3X.

Not Your Daughters Jeans Alisha Fitted Ankle Jeans – was $114, now $56.99

If you prefer the look of a cropped slim jean, these are a great choice. With a 28″ inseam and an 11″ front rise, these will be as comfy as they are chic. Available in sizes 14 – 24 in this turquoise, white, black, and pink. Size availability varies by color.

Denim 24/7 Straight Leg Jeans – was $89.99, now $31.99

Not a fan of skinnies? These straight legs offer a slightly looser fit, but still feel very modern. Ringspun and garment-dyed with classic five-pocket styling and a 30″ inseam. Available in sizes 12 – 32 in this yellow, purple, magenta, and turquoise. Size availability varies by color.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful plus-sized denim:

  1. Avenue – Plenty of options, though this Slim Leg Stretch Jean is my fave. Comes in a very on-trend burgundy. Woo!
  2. Nordstrom – Tons of fun colors, plus prints. Houndstooth, cheetah, and more.
  3. Macy’s – Emerald green, hot pink, rust red, and loads of other colors in the mix. Love this cobalt pair.

    Great post! You do such a fabulous job of sleuthing and discovering good deals!

    I would love to find colorful denim (or even colorful pants) in Long or Tall sizes that are not skinny jeans (I need at least 35″ inseam). I have been searching but haven’t had much luck. I do not want ankle pants (don’t find them flattering on me or on most women) or pants that are very tight on the calves. I have large calves and find skinny jeans/pants to be uncomfortable. My favorite style of pants/jeans are straight-legged (narrow but not quite skinny). I like wide legs, too.

    A tall order, I know (pun sort of intended!), but if anyone can find this, you can. You rock!

    Sally: I have the Alisha jeans in turquoise, but what kind of top would work with them for fall? I’d appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Joyce

      I love black with turquoise, so you could do a black top and boots or a B&W printed (striped?) top and black boots. Turquoise also looks amazing with purple, which is a hot color for fall. Also red and even dark brown. If you tuck the jeans into boots, you could do just about any kind of top from long-sleeved tee to cowlneck sweater. If you do flats or heels, definitely pick something with long sleeves so it looks seasonally appropriate, but maybe something lighter like a button-front or blouse. Hope that helps!

        Black it is! (Maybe I’ll try to work my way up to purple. . . .) Thank you.

    A nice selection! I just want to point out from experience that many, many of the NYDJ styles are quite high-waisted and have a long rise. This means if you’re an houryglassy shape with a short waist, the jeans will probably cut into the bottom of your ribs.

    What a coincidence, I just ordered some colorful and printed jeans from Macys last night. I can sometimes wear regular 16 and sometimes need the Plus size so I ordered a variety of sizes and prints. The shipping is free if you order at least $99, and what doesn’t work I will just return to my nearby Macys. I looked in the store first and the size selection was skimpy and there were more prints online too! Many were on sale which was another plus. Looking forward to making some fun outfits for fall with the leopard pirnt jeans!

    I’m wearing my new skinny red jeans from Talbots’s and I LOVE them. A gorgeous dark red and they come in other colors too. Right now all Talbot’s pants are $20 off.

    Thanks so much for posting this! I didn’t realize color skinny jeans would look good on hips like mine. Now I want to shop! Love that red dress you’re wearing too ~ it looks great :)
