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.
We’re heading to the second month! Mikkel is now six weeks old and we are increasingly connected. I already understand him better and sometimes I can even predict some reactions or some of his needs. Of course, it would be easier if he spoke or had an instruction manual of sorts. K.K.K.K (nervous laugh).
The days are long as I have been always so busy – and that may be why time goes so fast. I get up from bed around 8am, change his diapers – I have learned that it has to be done before he eats so the position of legs raised when putting on new diapers to not cause discomfort and even vomiting. After breastfeeding I try to make him to sleep again by finishing his meals laying down on bed again. If it works and he finally sleeps again, I take a nap with him. It’s such a great feeling to be spooning with him. He feels safe and I feel the happiest mother.
This autumn, with the “Fall Fashion Heroes” campaign, Lindex integrates larger sizes in all its fashion concepts. Now most of the pieces are offered in sizes up to 54. Their Generous concept, their former plus size line, is no longer available then.
It means Lindex is ahead in the curve of fashion and society development by taking the initiative of more inclusion and diversity. Among a few friends I raised the discussion in order to hear some opinions and it was said that to size up to 54 is not to go plus size at all, but I partly disagree.
