My Style: How I’m Rocking My AVA + VIV- A Mini Look Book

Sharing is caring!

So, I know that a few of you have heard by know, that Target has launched a new plus size range, AVA + VIV and the response was soooo varied! You loved it, hated it, were on the fence, and just weren’t sure. Well, today, I wanted to show you, with the help of #TargetStyle, just HOW I am adding these pieces to my closet, what I am rocking them with, and which ones are my faves!

I mean, how many times do you see an item online, you tilt your head, squint, and think it mayyyybe can work?! The better you know your shape and personal style, and sometimes all you need is to take a risk, you get better at imagining how the pieces will look!

So to show you what I mean, I chose six pieces and am going to share with you how I rocked them and made them a part of my world… are you ready? Well first, let me tell you the six items I chose:

The Potential AVA + VIV Suitors:

The Denim Button Up

I have been wanting an updated lighter wash denim button up for the longest. I have a bluer one, but for spring and to accent the spring florals, brights, and to play along with other denim, I needed one in my life.

The Striped Wrap Skirt

I fell in love with this skirt the second I saw it. Because I have no hips- yes, I know, I knew that this cut would be great in creating some hip action for me- so I snatched it up!

The Skinny Denim Jeggings

I was curious about these; I love a great pair of jeans and am always in a pair, but this rinse? It was a leap of faith that paid off!

The Parka

Something other than my trusty leather? Perfect. Casual and playful, and cool? I am here for this.

The Bikini Top

Swim season is almost here and guess what? AVA and VIV have swim, but wait till you see how I made this work!!

See how you can take something and turn it into your own when you mix and match it up? There are so many possibilities here and I am excited to play in them a bit more! With this collection, it really is how you style it and make it your own!

With a bit of polish or a bit of sass, I love styling these basic essentials and look forward to seeing how Target Style grows this range! Can’t wait for a few more contemporary pieces to be added to the mix!
