Plus Size Fall Fashion is in FULL Swing! AND on Your TV!
Hey loves, guess what? I was on TV! Yes, me, (with some amazing friends). I was on “Great Day SA,” a morning show here in San Antonio, TX. The segment was all about the latest plus size fall fashion trends and getting the look. Luckily, I had some amazing bloggers, influencers and business owners with me to show the looks. I know I have been talking about fall fashion for a WHILE now, and I have even modeled some of the trends myself here on the blog. BUT, Fall is legit my favourite season in fashion; for some reason, retailers always bring out the HEAT every fall, IMHO. It’s also the time I revamp my closet (every spring and autumn) and keep what I wear, and donate the rest.
I know you’re probably dying to know where all of these fabulous clothes came from, right? We worked with a few companies that were generous enough to provide clothes for the shoot. So a huge shout-out to: Fashion to Figure, A+ by Anthropologie, JustFab and Ashley Stewart! If you want to get your on hands on some of these pieces, don’t worry, I’ve got you below!
Plus Size Fall Trend #1 Head to Toe Leather
In case you haven’t guessed by now, the leather trend is my FAVE fall trend. I absolutely love how retailers are pretty much creating every garment in real or faux leather. My lovely model, Mycheryl, a local business owner (definitely check out her all-natural bath and body line, Chak Therapy) worked this look. I am LOVE with the Samirah faux leather jumpsuit from Anthropologie that she wore, paired with a black velvet top from FTF. Now, I KNOW Anthro can be a little pricey, but the green colour is amazing on everyone and it truly is a unique piece. I have linked some more affordable plus size faux leather pieces in an earlier blog post here. This trend isn’t likely to go away anytime before Spring, so don’t hesitate to grab some items!
Plus Size Fall Trend #2: The Midi Skirt
The midi skirt is the little engine that could lol. This length and cut of skirt has been around for ages, but last year, Réalisation Par released their 90’s nostalgia skirt the Naomi, and it’s BACK. I personally think this cut of skirt looks good on just about anybody, and that’s why it’s been reigning supreme the skirt kingdom for almost TWO years. Once again, Anthropologie held me down with an updated CITRINE VELVET version of the skirt. Yes, babes, the Kelly Velvet Midi Skirt from Anthro is the TRUTH. I already ordered it in my size because it’s just that good, that amazing and the model, cutie blogger and influencer Candice from Smiles & Pearls, looked amazing in the skirt. We paired it with a black leather moto jacket from H&M and a print t-shirt from Anthropologie (are you starting to see a trend here folks? LOL). I’m gonna keep it 100% with you all, the shirt is kinda pricey for what you get, but it was really great quality and she looks amazing in it.
Plus Size Fall Trend #3: Puff Sleeves
We all know I am obsessed with puff sleeves…y’all, I am obsessed with puff sleeves lol. I don’t know if it’s because they instantly make every outfit look glam, or they can be worn with everything. Well, actually, that’s exactly why haha. Chris, a publicist and business owner here in San Antonio, modeled this look. We styled this Fashion to Figure top SUPER casual with some JustFab jeans and booties. Right before we walked out. Chris grabbed the hat and a few Chanel brooches from my jewelry box. The green plaid is super on-trend as well, but also very classic. The sweetheart neckline can be as sexy as you want it to be, the sleeves are nice and long. AND, it’s under $40, right now. Yes girl, under $40! So why isn’t it in your cart yet?
Plus Size Fall Trend #4: Tonal (*Bonus Trend: Rust*)
My model for this fall trend look, influencer April, was hesitant. When I showed it to her on the hanger, she said it was WAAAY outside her comfort zone. But she was a trooper and sis looked AMAZING. Tonal (or just a fancy way of saying monochromatic) dressing is always in for Fall. It’s such an easy way to make any look POP, especially if you get away from all black or all white, which is what we did. We were able to find the hottest colour of the season in a wide leg trouser and see-through top, from FTF. Rust is just so hot right now, I have been picking up tons of pieces in the shade. Now honey, this is what I call SEXY, OK? SEXYY. It’s not showing a ton of skin, or skin-tight; but the see-through top is just sexy enough. I would def rock this at brunch, or a happy hour.
The top is almost completely sold out, FYI
Plus Size Fall Trend #5: Leopard/Mixed Print
I know, I know – leopard in the fall, groundbreaking. But this Anthropologie skirt took it a step further and added a mixed print element. Mixed prints are another fall trend that is just really fun and can be dialed up and down, depending on your comfort level. I am a huge fan of mixed print because you can create this trend with items you already have in your closet. We all have a polka dot or a striped piece, so think out of the box and style those together. Unfortunately, the Anthropologie top influencer Krystle wore is out of stock 🙁 However, notice how it had puff sleeves? Listen, ya girl is OBSESSED.
#FatGirlFall is HERE, Honey, OK?
Listen, Lizzo said it, not me. Fat Girl Fall is here and I don’t know about you, but I came to slay. And you can slay too, sis! Disclaimer: Don’t ever feel the need to go out and buy a bunch of new clothes; shop your closet first and make sure your wardrobe works for YOU.
