Plus Sized Favourites Pt.1

Monday, April 02, 2018


Today we'll be talking about plus-sized clothing. I think plus-size talking, is still a topic blogs kind of avoid. Even though we've been seeing people talking about it more and more, it's still a topic most blogs avoid. I don't want to avoid this topic as I feel like it deserves as much attention as any other topic there is to write about.

Plus size clothing is still quite a new concept. For years we've been seeing shops making half a dozen sizes of clothing and excluding what is considered to be ''bigger girls''- which in reality is extremely stupid to call them 'bigger girls' since these girls are normal-size, at least they are to me. I mean the average size in Portugal is a 10 or 12.

I've been thinking about doing one of these posts for a while but I never really found a website where plus-sized clothing was actually pretty. Fortunately, Rosegal contacted me regarding a collaboration and I thought this would be a great opportunity to write this post.

I'll be dividing this topic into 2 separate blogposts: this one will be concentrated in showing you my favourite casual wear so tops, bottoms and jackets and the second one will be all about dresses and how to style them for different occasions.


Tops

For tops today I chose 3 different types: a floral wrap top that is perfect to wear as a casual everyday piece or to wear in a more formal setting, a black lace-up jumper that will look great with an all-black look or paired with some blue jeans and a white t-shirt with a print of some lips that is perfect to wear this spring.

Bottoms

The first thing I choose bottom-wise were these boyfirend jeans. As we all know, baggier jeans are quickly conquering the fashion world yet again and I feel like these jeans are perfect for girls who are a bit on defence about replacing their skinny jeans. Alongside that, I also picked this black pencil skirt which I believe is a staple in anyone's wardrobe. Finally, I picked a more trendy piece: lace-up leggings.

Outwear 

For outwear, I first picked a grey oversized blazer, a piece that can be worn for work or just casually with some jeans and trainers. Next up, I chose a black duster coat with pearl details. I love the length, the little pearls on top and, of course, the flared sleeves. Lastly, I chose this military-style trenchcoat. I really liked this trench mainly because of its buttons but also because it cinches at the waist, giving you the illusion that you have a more hourglass shape than you actually do.
