I have a real love for versatile clothes. The ones you can dress up and dress down, that you can create several styles with and mostly, fit all body types. And a tunic dress delivers! I got a new one and there are already some plans for it. Let me tell you.
Tunic dresses are so comfy and so versatile that I had to get a new one. It’s like, they are never too much. You can turn them into a casual look or a fierce night look. It all depends on how you are going to style with. Pairing is key.
This new plus size tunic dress from Zizzi is ideal for travelling because you can wear it in several ways, and the fabric is light and breathable. Pardon my travelling ideas – I don’t mean to get anybody jealous but I am soon going to spend a whole month in Brazil. Ahahahaha kidding, I’m going to work and take my baby to visit his grandparents.
In summer days, on the other hand, bare legs are key. The heels that show a lot of skin just makes the look to flow lighter and sexy. In my opinion, I needed a belt to keep the shapes a bit curvier. But I also love to let the loose style of the tunic make my look the most comfortable ever.
This dress is surely on the Top Five list of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn. It is a dream of a dress and I am super to have it included in my style edit for Marina Rinaldi. The first look you can see here.
What time is it? It’s Glam time! This is the most glamorous time of the year where parties are all over allowing us proper excuses to shine even more (not that we need excuses to shine, but, anyways…) and I am glad to share some party outfits I picked up in the Lindex collection currently in stores.
The idea is to encourage ladies like Moi, that dress larger sizes, to try some new ways of pairing pieces ad creating unique outfits. Even when most of the clothes in the stores are black, you can still try something new for you, that channels glamour and fierceness.
Sporty styles are a must have for an updated look in this season. Combined with romantic textures, the outfit gets a new modern twist, resulting in a cool and fresh look.
When I first saw this long bomber jacket was in a picture of an email from Zizzi. They were really excited to have a patched bomber in the store and asked me if I would wear it. I just laughed out loud in the hopes of getting the piece in my hands right away. I had to wait a month or so, though, but it was worth it. Now I find myself wearing the jacket all the time, with layers inside for colder days or just with a dress in milder weather.
The fit is the whole big deal when it comes to clothes. We want to have them embracing our curves when we buy a new piece, right? Fit is magic, is key. For this reason, it can be the biggest challenge for the plus size production.
In years of experience as an insider in fashion brands, I learned that if you want to produce plus size clothes, you got to cut for it. meaning that when designing a new piece, you must fit for the size you cutting. Seems obvious but there is a lot of brands out there working with what we call scaling – like fitting for 36 and increase the sizes using a table, a scale, and that just doesn’t do. You end up with shoulders by the elbows for instance.
It’s autumn and the party season is soon to come – or has it already started for you? Busy with all the parties prep or not, you got to check out my style edit for the pieces dropping at Zizzi’s stores and online retailers now and in the upcoming weeks.
Romantic & shiny curves
This top is all things romantic, the white plus lacey details added to the bell sleeves fit brings my thoughts to a romantic date in the seventies. In this context, a pair of discrete lurex pants and golden heels feels just right.
