Earth, Wind & Fire’s 21st of September has officially passed, and Autumn is here! One of the best seasons, in my opinion, because the chill allows for stylish layers with gorgeous accessories. Sometimes it’s hard to find the jacket or coat that speaks to you. Here are some jackets and coats that are gorgeous and may whisper to you just in time for fall and that fire ensemble you have waiting.
When it comes to plus fashion, people of all shapes, sizes, heights, and style choices should have options. No matter how much plus size fashion progresses, there is always room for growth! There are still those of us who have constant struggles. Shopping for clothes should be easy and exciting. It should never feel like a battlefield. You shouldn’t leave the store or online shopping feeling wounded and scarred.
The other day I was on my favorite app Twitter and doing what I love doing most, talking about fashion. Someone I followed was talking about her struggles about being tall and plus. As a petite plus size lady myself, we have our own struggles when shopping, and I had never really considered the hassles that tall plus size women go through. I knew I needed to come here and offer some help.
The complication that most tall plus size women (or anyone looking for plus size clothes for tall people) encounter are brands with tall options, but none for plus sizes, or the options are far in between, which is extremely unfair.
While doing some research, I see the issues and how this can be a total disaster. There are many pants and jeans options, but when it comes to maxi dresses and simply long dresses, this is where the dilemma shows its ugly head. Don’t worry, though… we got you!
Let us take some of the stress away and make shopping for you taller folks a little easier. You deserve stylish options that will have your wardrobe looking phenomenal. Let’s do a little shopping.
