Exciting news to share on this post! If you have been following my blog for a while, you have probably noticed that I am a big fan of Old Navy, particularly their jeans. The fit and quality are great for my curvy frame, mixing comfort and style to be the perfect base for many of my looks. Not to mention, they are very economically priced. In addition to the many different styles that Old Navy already carries, they have decided to launch a new brand of jeans that focuses on the Universal Fit of denim for ALL shapes and sizes. I’ve teamed up with Old Navy to be one of the first to “break in” these jeans (pun intended) and show just how universal the fit is. You may have already seen me in your email as part of a blast that went out this morning but if do not receive Old Navy’s newsletters, no need to fear, I will give you the run down here. The +Universal Fit provides styles from boot cut to skinny that can work with any look. As you can see here, I’ve styled each of these cuts to show just how versatile they can be. With the same quality that we know and love, this denim is truly something that any woman can wear and shows that style is indeed universal. For more information, visit here and check your local Old Navy store!

Transitioning

Even though we are in still in the depths of Summer, many retailers and designers have already begun to transition into Fall. Fall is my absolute favorite season when it comes to fashion but every year, I am surprised at how early Fall styles start popping up. It’s almost like Christmas time. I love the holiday season but when I start to see ornaments and lights on display in October, I panic. I always think to myself, “Can we at least get to Thanksgiving first?” But, like with all season’s transitions, I have to embrace change so with fashion, I am starting to select key pieces that will not only work for the remaining Summer months, but that can also easily transition into Fall.

This duster vest from Charlotte Russe is a perfect example of that. It is made of a lightweight material that allows for a lot of versatility. You can easily put on a turtleneck dress underneath and some booties for Fall or wear it like I have for Summer. Many of the styles at Charlotte Russe are following this same trend and now, you will be able to shop in store! Charlotte Russe is relaunching their plus size line and clothing will be available in 300 stores nationwide. Be sure to check your local store and snag your transition pieces for the upcoming season!

Who doesn’t love a little animal print every now and then? While leopard print is usually seen most in the Fall Season, there are ways to incorporate it into Spring and Summer by adding some color to the look. Now, you don’t have to go quite as bright as I did but I thought the neon was a great complement as well as contrast to the printed skirt. I love the halter criss cross detail at the top that added a cute flair. I also love that even though each of these garments are eye-catching on their own, somehow together they still work. I’m all for taking risks and this was definitely one worth taking!

Color blocking is still alive and well! This trend emerged a few seasons ago and has really never left. The reason being is because it is so versatile and there are so many different ways to interpret this trend. Using complementary but opposing color palettes is the perfect way to spice up any outfit. My favorite combinations in addition to the ones used this this post are yellow and turquoise,  purple and coral, fuscia and blue and many more. You can really get creative and come up with your own looks as well. The key is to let the colors shine on their own without adding in too many additional accessories. After all, you don’t want anything to compete with your color block look. Keep everything simple and you are good to go!

Staying Neutral

Although the term “neutrals” is often associated with something plain or basic, in fashion it can be anything but. Grey, beige, white and even black when paired correctly can be the perfect palette for a neutral, simplistic look. Mixing together different neutral hues and adding in some complementary accessories can fuse practical style with trendy fashion. Even though Summer is chalked with bright colors, it’s nice to bring a different approach to the season’s fashion. Not to mention, it is a comfortable and easy look to put together for every size and shape. I used to avoid white pants because I felt like they made me look wider on my bottom half but I have learned to embrace them, realizing that I just needed the right pair. Try something different this Summer and embrace the cool, fresh colors of a neutral aesthetic.

Plus Size Summer Fashion

It is evident that Summer is in full swing and with that brings a whole new wardrobe to match the Summer heat. If you are like my mother, you literally clear out your Fall wardrobe to make room for your Summer clothes. I get my shopping addiction from her by the way (hi mommy!). But if you are like me, you add in some new pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe that are great for Summer and can possibly transition to other seasons to wear all year long. I’ve teamed up with Pink Clubwear to bring you some of their Summer styles for any occasion.
