I cannot put one leg into many of the jeans I own. I wear a lot of dresses with great belts. I also wear shirts or blouses tucked into a skirt with a great belt. I wear those with cool looking low heeled boots for casual or high heel boots or pumps for dressy. I would like to buy jeans or wear some that I already own. I do not get that upset over a few extra pounds here and there. I make the most of what I got! I believe it is a cross between cool artist and ladylike! When I do get back into jeans, I am going full on rocker chick for the night with a tank , great belt, boots and tight jeans!!
