Style Your Curves

I offered up some inspirational help to a friend of mine who is in a shopping/clothing rut....more like I insisted she let me create some looks for her. I know first hand that when you are in size XL+ shopping isn't as fun but I also know that you can look amazing in any size you may be. Figure flattering outfits can literally make you look as if you lost 10+ pounds and the more polished you look, no one will see your size.
My friend can wear casual looks to work and comfort is on the top of her list. She wanted pieces that can be worn to work or weekend, I gave her plenty of options!

I have created 5 Boards for Work and Weekend, here are the stats:
* I have picked out 24 pieces head to toe
* These 24 pieces mix and match to create 26 completely different outfits for work and weekend. Plus 6 BONUS outfits!!!!!!
* If you bought everything you would be paying $625, which is $19.50 per outfit. No piece is over $50 and most are on sale on the store sites which will create extra savings. And the best thing is you can wear these over and over again!
* These pieces can be worn now and transitioned into fall
* If worn to work you could wear a completely different outfit everyday for a month with your new wardrobe
* Pieces are from Target, Forever 21, J.Jill, Lane Bryant and Payless

Board 1: 5 Looks
This board is cute and casual weekend wear, you can also layer this fun graphic tee under the button down for a warmer casual look. There is a scarf on another board that can be paired with ANY of these tops and instantly create 4 extra looks!

Plus Size 5

V neck pullover sweater

V neck t shirt

Long sleeve shirt

Forever 21 graphic tee

Trend Retro

Board 2: 5 Looks
These cute jeans can be worn with any of the 3 tops and yes jean on jean is very in style right now. The jean top can also be work over the dress for a more covered look. Once again the scarf on board 4 can be worn with the jean on jean look for a bonus outfit!!!
Plus Size 3

Summer dress

V neck sweater

Camisole top

Board 3: 3 Looks
This board is straight forward one tank top will go perfectly under either of these comfy cardigans and the tunic look is perfect for work or Friday night date night!!
Plus Size 4

Board 4: 7 Looks
I love these pants!!! TIP!! DO not wear "crop" ONLY "Ankle"....crop pants will cut you off at the calf making you look heavier where as ankle pants make you look long and slim! These pants are perfect and are ON SALE!!! These pants can be worn with any of these tops, the graphic tee under the jean shirt and then all these tops paired with the scarf! This board is unlimited!
The scarf is actually the most expensive piece I have picked out but it will go with 99% of everything I picked out and will pay for itself in 1 month!
Plus Size 1

Lace top

Forever 21 graphic tee

Linen pants


Board 5: 6 Looks
I LOVE a good maxi skirt not only are they beyond comfy but can be dressed up or down for any occasion!!! Every top goes with this scarf and can then be mixed and matched with the scarf or necklace! Bonus look.......Tuck in the AC/DC graphic tee for a fun easy weekend look!!!!

Plus Size 2

Print t shirt

Plus size shirt

Purple lace top


I hope everyone will get inspiration out of these looks and all of these items are currently in stores right now and most on sale....so click on the links to purchase!!!!!! Hope you love them friend, I know they would look stunning on you!
