It’s Fall again and of course that means boots, warm jackets, and pumpkin spice everything!!! The weather is cooler, the boots are taller, and staying warm and cozy is the best getaway this time of year. Staying warm, cozy, yet still adding that extra edginess is where I find my inner most happiness. But as women, working women at that, having pieces that transition from work to After 5 events is a necessity!
Trendy Jackets, Sparkle, and Flirty Skirts
Incorporating warm jackets with edgy, trendy pieces will make one feel beautiful even during the grey sky filled days. Jackets may require one to go up a size to give the extra room for bulkier sweaters or layers. Everyone needs at least 2 jackets in your closet; one that is large enough to go over your sweaters or layers and a fitted jacket for dress shirts or lightweight shirts. My favorite place to shop for jackets is Torrid Fashion. Torrid never fails with trendy, cutting edge pieces. The first look is all TORRID Fashion from head to toe! Links to purchase included after the pictures!
One of my favorite fall looks features a black suede like jacket with fringe. I went up a size on this jacket and can layer over numerous types of pieces. Pairing trendy a trendy T-shirt with a flirty skirt is an easy outfit that can go from work to dinner. The T-shirt is a V-neck style featuring I love Rock and Roll in sequins. This top features a trendy cutout on the backside. The skirt is a flirty flowing skirt with sparkles galore. A girl can never sparkle too much! The more sparkles the better!! Don’t be afraid to pair different textures together. Fashion stylist and Founder/Chief Executive Director of West Palm Beach Fashion Week Steven Smith says: “You don’t have to match to look trendy” Is he ever right!! Pairing different textures/patters/colors is definitely a must! Even if you wear all black, pair pleather pieces with cotton and so forth to create different looks that still complement each piece.
Did Someone say BOOTS???
The boots are a story in themselves!! These over the knee beauties fit my large calves and still have room to breathe!! I love these because they are sturdy enough to stand up over your knees and have absolutely no slouching and the thick heel provides ample support for those long 9-5 days. Everyone needs at least one pair of knee high boots in their wardrobe and you will not be disappointed with these Torrid over the knee boots!
Classic and Trendy
The next look features a duster and pant set from a local boutique in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The girls at Volume Plus are amazing to work with and friendly. They feature fashionable, fun, trendy articles of clothing that go up to a size 3x giving us curvy gals some options!
This jacket and pant ensemble is trendy, yet comfortable. I paired the same quarter sleeve T-shirt from Torrid to show how you can incorporate the same pieces into other areas of your wardrobe. When looking at an outfit, consider each piece individually and pair that with other pieces to increase your variety of clothing options. Dusters are staples in fashion that remain classic pieces through fashion fads.
Bodysuits : Feeling Sexy Again
Last but not least is my own design line of custom made bodysuits. Bella2couture which means “Beautiful You Custom Fashion” derived from Latin combinations. We are focused on bringing SEXY back to the curvy woman. Classy, Sexy, Curvaceous. These bodysuits have been on numerous runways here in Oklahoma City, OK and we only continue to grow! Featuring full front zipper and details such as spikes and chains you will always be ahead of the trends in these pieces. The custom order option gives room for the hips and keeps the waist snatched. Many tears and trial and errors were encountered when developing these perfect fitting bodysuits. The main reason I began to design was the lack of availability of these types of pieces in my size. I am tall and curvy which leads to many items being too short on my torso and too tight in the butt area. These bodysuits have slimming seams to help showcase a women’s curves. Bringing sexy back one bodysuit at a time!
