While I have been waiting for Mother Nature to take her foot off South’s neck, I am not looking forward to putting away my Spring/Summer fashion. Although I am not here for the heat, I love Spring/Summer fashion; shorts, crop tops, strapless pieces, little flirty dresses and of course sandals. Now don’t get it twisted I slay despite the weather but being as cute as I want to be in the extreme cold is a challenge that I don’t always welcome. Lucky for me and many of you, the weather is currently at a point where we can still rock many of our faves by remixing the look a little.
As a single mother who is always on a budget, I can’t afford to totally ditch my entire wardrobe with the change of each season. Also, as a fashionista, there are pieces that I know can be styled in a manner that will allow them to transition into different seasons. All it takes is an open mind and a dash of creative juices to turn a Summer slay into some Fall fabulousness and I got the juice.
Most of you know that I live for a great red lippie but my love for the color red doesn’t end there. While I have heard thousands of times that red and other bright colors aren’t plus-size friendly, I love red articles of clothing. Whether it is a pop of color, a monochromatic or mix-n-match situation, red is the perfect color for a woman that wants to have an “all eyes on me” moment. Oh, and despite my size and what society thinks, I want and deserve that moment every time I enter a room and so do you.
Because I am that bold fat black woman who is okay with being seen and heard, I thought this red jumpsuit would be perfect for iOne Digital’s Creative Class event in Atlanta. However, since it was an evening rooftop event, I knew that it would have to be layered in a way that would be stylish and Fall friendly.
Pairing this red jumpsuit with a polka dot blouse was the proper set off especially with the addition of a whole lot of confidence and accessories that were both stylish and trendy. Because I know you want all the deets of this look, I have listed them below. so, get your stroll on sis!
