Trendy Plus-Size Pants Report
[Shopping Resources Below]

It wasn't very long ago that trendy styles for young, full-figured women were impossible to find on or off-line.  A growing number of retailers are recognizing that young women of all shapes and sizes have the body confidence to pull off even the skinniest trends.

Price points in this style category fall mainly on the value to moderate end of the spectrum, with Fast Fashion retailers offering the most style diversity. Trendy pants are where quick fads in wild colors or prints and extreme silhouettes are most likely to turn up.  Some are appealing mainly to particular style tribes such as punk or BoHo, while others are appealing to more mainstream trend-conscious, curvy women.

Mixed with t-shirts, trendy tops and chic blazers, these pants are appealing to the most fashionable style setters.  Styles are mainly appropriate for casual wear, although options do exist for clubbing and working women in less formal office environments.  Along with staples such as jeans, trends such as jumpsuits and palazzo pants can come and go.  Active wear styles such as yoga pants and leggings have become particularly popular recently for more than just going to the gym and can come in patterns or with embellishments, in addition to sportier or solid color styles.


Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Trendy Pants

Teen mall hot spots often have better inventories on-line in larger sizes.  Styles change rapidly for the latest trendy looks and prices are low to moderate. Most also offer free shipping with minimum purchase orders.    Ultra cheap Rainbow is the spot to find throwaway styles that are only going to see a wearing or two for size S to 3X.  Rue 21 has a sweet or BoHo flavor to its offerings with palazzo pants, leggings, and soft pant styles in size XS to 3X.  Meanwhile, British retailer ASOS has been immensely popular with trend-setting plus-size fashion bloggers over the last year with hard-to-find styles for women with curves in size 14 to 24W.

Torrid has the most extensive size range with skinny jeans, soft pants, shorts, and leggings all available in size XL to 5X, or 12 to 28W.  Plus specialty retailer Ashley Stewart also has a more urban vibe with slim leg and body conscious styles, bright colors and prints, and the latest trends including palazzo pants and jumpsuits.  Styles here can often also be appropriate for work and occasions in size 12 to 26W.

Those looking for soft jersey wide leg yoga pants and palazzo pants will find solids and colorful prints at Sealed with a Kiss in size 1X to 6X at moderate price points. 

Those looking for more tailored style pants with a trendier edge in the latest leg styles in colors and prints will want to stop in at Eloquii for size 14 to 28W.  A little pricier than average, frequent sales, discounts, and coupons available directly from the website help to bring into the budget of more shoppers.  Another stop for stylish working women who enjoy a trendier look to their clothes is New York & Co, which offers suiting separates in the latest looks.  Most are available size 0 to 18.  More fashion forward looks are also regularly appearing at Lane Bryant and Dress Barn which are actively working to improve their style quotient.

The best department store for trendier looks is Macy's.  Quick to stock the latest colors, fabrics, legs, and styles they will often be a sure bet for harder to find trends in larger sizes, often with plentiful options.  This is where you will find jumpsuits, leggings, soft pants, skinny legs, palazzos and jeans all in one spot for size 14 to 24W.  Prices are moderate with plenty of limited time on-line offers and discounting available directly from the site. Weekends see the most deals and shipping offers.  Kohl's will often carry sportier trends, including items such as active wear and sports leggings.  A small junior plus department adds more options from Jennifer Lopez and Daisy Fuentes in size 1X to 3X.  Meanwhile, Target is stepping up its on-line plus offerings with a new, affordable trendy line that includes the latest fashion and sporty pant styles in size XL to 4X.
