Reah Norman is a plus-size blogger that I recently started to follow and she actually works in the fashion industry as a stylist’ As a plus-size stylist, she understands more than many how clothes should come together and how to accessorize for the best effect. She solves one of the more difficult issues for most of us…..what goes with what. If I’m to believe the statistics, almost 30% of us never venture outside the home. Another 15% only go to TG meetings and another 20% feel unsure of themselves while in public.
The well put-together stylish woman has no fears. She is comfortable with herself in part because she is knows who she is and how she looks. We’ve all heard the sayings that a person analyses who you are within 30 seconds of meeting you (or looking at you). So you can dramatically increase your chances as being read “as a woman” by understanding what looks good on you.
Reah makes our job easy. She takes a look at the fall fashions with their emerging trends in classic prints, textures, and patterns, and a few fresh, unexpected trends, to create five astonishing and exciting outfits that are good for girls of most sizes and age. Whether you like going bold or just prefer the more subtle look you can build your entire ensemble around these fall trends, or add a strategic splash of one or two trends, to take you “outside your fashion box” for a renewed wardrobe perspective! The question is not IF you can wear the trends, but HOW you can wear them!
Reah went to Sonsi to find all these looks so it makes your shopping easy by just following the links. These 5 wearable and versatile looks will maximize your fall for every occasion- casual daytime, updated workwear, and sophisticated nighttime, making it effortless to achieve a chic and polished fall plus size head to toe wardrobe. Here are Reah’s outfits. Enjoy.
Floral prints have transitioned from spring and summer, and straight into the forefront this fall, as a modern throwback to the prominent 90’s fashion trend, offering something unique for the season. Pair a feminine floral dress from Apollo, with an embellished structured blazer from City Chic and cozy riding boot from Lane Bryant for a perfect fall look. As the weather gets cooler, add a pair of tights, and even boot socks to add layers and warmth. Mixing your black and brown accessories adds interest to an ensemble… Matchy matchy is boring!
Look comfortably casual with a rocker or sporty twist this season. Update your basic jeans and t-shirt look with graphic prints, and trendy leggings, or create a sporty look with leather detailing in the varsity jacket from Alight, printed layers in the plaid shirt from Catherine’s, worn with a sassy wedge sneaker from Lane Bryant for some serious street cred! Chic, playful, and comfortable, while still being polished!
Classic meets trendy with the preppy cool trend! Intertwining classic, ladylike pieces like the tweed blazer by Ulla Popken, with a more trendy statement item like the distressed skinny jeans by Lane Bryant, makes for an unexpected wardrobe creation that is mixed to perfection and offers a fresh perspective. Polish off this look with the classic button down shirt from Ulla Popken, and the sassy animal print smoking slippers by Lane Bryant, and you are “preppy cool”!
Houndstooth, deep red, and faux fur- a few of the seasons most classic trends, all wrapped up and ready to go! Create a sleek ensemble, even with outerwear, by adding a belt on the outside of your layers. The houndstooth tunic by Ulla Popken, layered underneath the faux fur vest by Alight, and paired with a knit jean by Catherine’s in falls best pop of color, all tied together with the suede lock belt by City Chic, and you are “classically fall”! Belts are a curvy girl’s best friend!
Revitalize a monotonous workwear wardrobe by adding unexpected trendy pieces that are fashion forward, yet office appropriate. Trade in your basic black blazer for the structured denim blazer by Catherine’s that is still neutral, spice up a classic argyle pencil skirt by Lane Bryant, by mixing in a sassy leopard print accessory, and switch up your basic pump for a chic cut-out heel, also by Lane Bryant. Perfect workwear wardrobe update!
No matter what styles and trends speak to you this fall, there is definitely a lot to be excited about! Embrace the trends, don’t be afraid to try something new, and ask yourself how you can make those trends you love work for you!
