On Monday, we talked about Charlotte Russe’s Plus Size Refuge Skinny Jeans that have a tummy control panel, and I promised I would show you more styles from the collection. So next up, we have these Plus Size Refuge Destroyed Hi-Rise Skinny Jeans, which are high waist and they include a tummy control panel, too. Just in case you didn’t get to read Monday’s post, I stumbled across these jeans and was really intrigued by the tummy control panel. I feel like I see this feature in leggings or workout attire, but I’ve never seen it in jeans. And lately, I have been wearing a lot more denim than I have been wearing leggings.

As I said in my last post, I have always had a love-hate relationship with my lower tummy. So, on days when I am feeling less confident about that area, these jeans come in handy!

I’m a destroyed denim kind of girl, so naturally, I gravitated toward these jeans. I paired the jeans with this Lace-Up Detail Pullover Sweater, which is also from Charlotte Russe. I love the tie details on this sweater, and the material is super soft and comfortable. I topped off the look with these Gored Wedge Booties. This outfit is playful and casual, just how I like to keep while running errands or hanging out with friends.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 16 in the Plus Size Refuge Skinny Jeans, which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly. Similarly, to the last pair of Refuge Skinny Jeans, this denim does not stretch very much, but it still fits pretty true to size. I am wearing a 2X in the SWEATER, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I am wearing a size 8 in the Gored Wedge Booties, which is one size smaller from my usual size. I sized down because these shoes have a true wide fit. However, the booties are a little tight at first and I would probably order my usual size if I had to do it all over again.
