We all come in different shapes and sizes…right? So this week, I’m highlighting fashion on the curvy side. And here’s the good news….style has no size!
A great look for every size is a maxi skirt or dress. Looking for something to wear to a summer wedding? We are loving a pink floral wrap dress from Nordstrom’s. Another Nordstrom dress that’s perfect for a summer wedding is a floaty floral chiffon with an empire waist. We think both dresses are the perfect toast to the bride and groom!
Maxi skirts are perfect for daytime as well….no special occasion needed for this stylish look. A few Pinterest board looks I adore show a maxi skirt paired with a denim shirt, either tucked or tied at the waist. BTW…tying a shirt at the waist is my signature look and flattering on every body type!
A denim jacket worn with a skirt or dress is ideal for summer layering. A floral front-button maxi skirt worn with a gray t-shirt and topped with a light blue denim jacket will take you anywhere. And show me a ruffled maxi skirt, white t-shirt, and a denim jacket, and I’ll show you an adorable summer trio!
Not convinced you can wear the exact same outfit your skinny bestie wears? Then be sure to take a look at some side-by-side photos of blogger Katie Shurino’s celebrity copies. She started blogging in 2015 after she realized there was very little online fashion inspiration for curvier women.
My favorites are her Meagan Markle copies….she calls them “royal shake-ups”. She looks just as royal as Meagan in a navy shift dress topped with a white coat and beret. And a bright yellow dress looks ultra-classy on both of them. Katie’s motto is: “It’s not about who wore it better, but all about….anyone can wear anything”!
“Two Peas in Prada” bloggers, Ashley and Emily, have been best friends since high school. Even though they live in separate cities, wear different sizes, and have different styles….their passion for fashion is their bond. I love how they each style their jeans. Emily wears a gray t-shirt topped with an army green jacket. Ashley wears her distressed denim with a white blouse and black blazer…a dynamic duo for sure!
Isn’t it exciting when major retailers finally get the big picture….joining the curvy band wagon? March 2019, Anthropologie announced their plus-size launch! And Walmart recently introduced their Sofia Vergara line of denim. The “Stylish-Sassy-Classy” blogger gives them a test run and says they will definitely make you feel confident in your curves.

I don’t know about you, but looking stylish and fabulous in any size makes me so happy!
