Plus Size Spring 2014 Fashion

I am plus size AND proud! Even at my smallest by traditional sizing standards I would be considered “plus size”. Whatever, it’s a title I used to hate but now I embrace! I stand at just under 5’10 so I can wear a heavier weight fairly well. Could I stand to lose weight? Yes, I would love to drop 50 pounds and I have already begun the process of eating better and becoming a bit more active. In the mean time I still want to look stylish and put together! Here are a few outfits I put together for Spring even though it still feels like winter sometimes in Chicago… Weather forecasters are saying snow next week… BOO! Oh well if I were going back to LA I’d be wearing these outfits!

Boho For The Day

Boho is big this season and this is how I would wear it so that it is age appropriate but still young and fun.

Spring 2014 Outfit 1 Shopping/Girlfriends/Casual

Normally I am not a fan of shorts and boots but I saw an outfit similar in LA and I loved it! So much so that I thought it would make a great transition outfit from Spring to Summer. Or for cool Summer days.

Casual Outfit 2

Out of all the outfits I created, this one closely resembles my daily “uniform”. I really love the addition of the mint bag. Accessories are a great way to add in trendy colors that can become dated once a season is over.

Daytime Professional Look

This outfit is inspired by friend, mentor and sister from another mister: Ana Lydia Monaco! I don’t normally wear heals so I thought some stylish flats would be nice for us tall girls who are height conscious. The outfit is classic and professional. Great for a meeting, business lunch or business dinner. The statement necklace really stands out as the star of the outfit and takes what could be a boring outfit and making it chic.

B;ack & Rose Gold

The classic black wrap dress is a go to dress for every woman. They range in price from cheap and cheerful (ala Wendy Willaims… How you doin!) to high end DVF wraps. I like to invest in great, statement pieces like a wrap dress so I own a higher end version. BUT if you are a frugalista you can take a low end wrap dress and make it look like a million dollars with great accessories in hot, trendy colors. I chose rose gold/blush which is my color of the moment.

  1. The second and third outfits are my faves. Congrats to embracing your plus sized status.

    • Because of my body type I will ALWAYS be considered “plus size” even at my smallest and healthiest weight I was a 10-12 which to most is considered “plus”. To me it’s just a label but then again I am pretty tall so I have a very different view of what it means to be “plus” than a shorter to average height woman. =)
