What’s more classic than a black pencil skirt and a white top? But add some neon pumps, some quirky jewelry and leather accents, and you have a modern, fun twist on a classic outfit. Perfect for injecting some creativity in the daily grind of my office wardrobe.
This great plussize Calvin Klein top from Macy’s has mesh inserts at the shoulder and some wrap ruching details that walk the line between sporty and classic. And I absolutely love this leather panel pencil skirt I scored at Eloquii before they transitioned to an online store. The funky beaded necklace I picked up at Forever21 for almost nothing…and the neon peep toe heels were a great find from DSW last season. Who says fashion has to always be new???
When you want to add a bit of fun to an outfit–with a statement necklace and statement heels, keep the rest of your outfit simple and classic. That’s the way to really make it pop!
A new plus-size powerhouse is on the scene! About 5 months ago, The Limited debuted a new plus-size line called Eloquii. Full of on-trend options, they have a great selection of business wear and weekend basics with sexy details. The line is available online, but they also carry the line as a shop-within-a-shop in select locations. I finally got the chance to visit the one in Water Tower place here in Chicago a few weeks ago!
Here’s a snapshot into the pop-up Eloquii shop inside The Limited.
Love this electric blue split peplum dress with leather details!
This one-shoulder pleated fancy dress was a gorgeous deep raspberry color that I just adored!
Rocker chick!!! I loved this “luxe leather” drop-waist short dress. I snapped it up super fast and wore it to a bachelorette party that weekend (with different shoes, of course!).
How fun are these bright yellow jeans? Paired with a super soft grey cardigan and a basic tee, you are set for a weekend fall outing.
My favorite look that we put together at the store! How hot are these red snakeskin print jeans? And the blazer with leather lapels and sleeves? I feel like I should be playing a sold out show in the Vic! Where’s my entourage???
I’m so thrilled that The Limited has invested the time and resources to really develop the Eloquii line. They are still working out the sizing on some items, so having the opportunity to try the clothes on in a store is extremely helpful. For instance, in the red snakeskin jeans, I wore my true size, but in the black version of the same jeans, I had to size up. The sleeves are also a little tight in some of their suit jackets. But overall, I was very pleased with their sizing and the cuts and colors of their fabrics.
The managers at The Water Tower store were also amazing and so friendly. Another thing that really impressed me about the store was the presentation of the clothes. Unlike some stores with plus-size sections, they were not shoved into a back corner and crammed full of racks that you have to paw through. The clothes were beautifully displayed, with complementary pieces tabled together and racks open to the room for easy viewing. It was a very nice shopping experience, and I left with 3 amazing additions to my wardrobe!
So…call your local Limited and ask if they are one of the lucky locations that carry Eloquii or check the store locator!
