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!

    So beautiful!!! i haven’t bought their plus clothing yet. If you don’t mine me asking the size you choose or whether they run true to size?

    • Kristine July 29, 2015 at 11:18 pm

      Thank you! Most of their clothing is true to size. The vest is a 1x which is what I normally wear. I would just advise ordering a size up in the jeans. Hope that helps!
