No more boring casual outfits! In my last post, I mentioned that Gwynnie Bee, the plus size clothing subscription service, challenged me to make a Style Resolution this year, and mine was to seriously pump up my casual, off-duty looks, which had been taking second place to my workwear outfits. So, instead of throwing on whatever tshirt was on the floor of my bedroom, I decided to be much more intentional and focused on my casual style this year. My second Gwynnie Bee style post features this Drape Front Mixed Media Duster from Jones New York, and it’s a little out of this world!
Are you looking for a plus size faux fur jacket this season? You are not alone. There has literally been an explosion of faux furs from various plus size retailers. I’m not just talking about the old-school sleek furs, but totally outrageous faux fur jackets with exaggerated, shaggy shapes and cool colors. I was lucky enough to grab this crazy version from Lane Bryant earlier this year and it’s my new favorite accessory! I bought a size 20/22 for even more of an exaggerated shape and it goes easily over thicker tops and sweaters.
How cute is this Plus Size Sweater with the cutest Scottie Dog Print?! It’s Charter Club from Macy’s and it comes in both petite sizes and plus sizes! It’s oh-so-cozy and because it’s tunic length, it hits at about mid-thigh and works perfectly over leggings. I’ve been trying to up my lounge wear game lately, and this Charter Club Plus Size Scottie Dog Sweater from Macy’s is perfect for those days when you’re relaxing at home — or blogging from bed!
I’ve been completely obsessed with plaid and am wearing it everywhere this season — even to fancy parties! There is something so cheerful and bold and comforting about plaid. I usually pair my plaid tops with jeans or pop them under a sweater, but I feel like this plaid deserved a night out. So, I paired this red and black plaid top (from Torrid last year) with this fab sparkly Eliza J Textured Full Skirt that I found at Nordstrom*. Add some sequin booties and some statement jewelry, and this plaid is ready to party!
I’ve been dying for velvet lately and it has seriously taken over my holiday dressing plan! And OMG, you guys…I found the PERFECT black velvet dress at Torrid. With the tank style straps (to cover your bra), the surplice neckline (to make your girls look fab), the nipped in waist, and the full skirt (complete with a crinoline!)…this dress has it all! And it comes in a divine, deep black velvet!
