Fashion Rule #32: Don’t be afraid of a bigger size run

It’s been a minute but I am back! Been having creators block + holiday working hours for the past two months. Let’s be honest to each other…we don’t have active seasons all the time. But here I am pushing through this small valley in my creativity and writing my last fall blog.

Did this shoot a long time ago…but I was indecisive as to what fashion rule to base it on. I had three possible rules in mind but this one rule is the main purpose of this whole outfit.

While shopping I spotted this awesome silk burnt orange kimono….in the clearance section! As I gracefully ran across the other side of the store to grab and hug the beautiful garment (totally exaggerating LOL), I noticed there was none in my size. The only sizes available were 3XL or XL. I said YOLO, grabbed the smallest final sale item and created this look. Never allow a bigger size run to discrourage your trendsetter self.

I made this XL kimono work as an oversized outerwear and it’s now one of my favorite fall styling pieces. Decided to pair this kimono with a black lace onesie. Really wanted the color to pop and be the focal point of this outfit so pairing it up with neutrals gave it the look.

If there is a certain sweater or shirt you spot while shopping but cannot find your size don’t be afraid to go a bigger size. There are so many ways to create a look using oversized sweaters or shirts. You can add any accessories that will make the oversized look complete. As always a purse ties in the look but you cannot forget your favorite sunnies and earrings.

In the great state of Texas the chilly weather is finally amongst us and with that comes more cozy and layered outfits you will see in the next couple of posts. The holiday season is amongst us and for sure I’m ready to post Christmas DIY’s and New Years sparkly outfits.
