Fashion Friday: The Hi or Low Trend | by @VintageBlondie

Hi or Low?

 

            Hello Ladies! It’s me again from NothingMinusaboutaplus.blogspot.com (Excuse the name change!) and welcome back to Fashion Fridays! So this summer, I have seen the hi-low trend everywhere. In shirts, dresses and skirts; any place that you choose to shop this summer, will definitely have hi-low items in stock. I love it so much and hopefully by the end of today’s segment you will be in love with it as well. So let’s get started!

Shirts

So, the first thing I ever fell in love with in this trend is the amazing hi-low tops. Some of them come short, some of them come long, but either way they are so fabulous. The perfect accessories and shoes can transform these tops from casual to dressy instantly. Pair them with a nice pair of shorts or leggings and it creates the absolute perfect summer outfit!

Skirts

So the next best thing about this trend is the skirts. Whether its sheer, printed, a solid color of polka dots, every woman this season should have a high-low skirt! Now even though the warm weather is leaving soon, it doesn’t hurt to break out this skirt with an awesome pair of wedges before the bright summer sun leaves us. Show those lovely legs some love.

Dresses

Alright ladies final and last item on our hi-low topic is the hi-low dress. Now ladies, this just may replace your regular LBD( Little Black Dress). It’s sophisticated, its elegant and its definitely something different. The flowy, long frabric drapes your curves and gives it a beautiful, dramatic feel. And im telling you ladies, heads will definitly turn when your wearing one of thease dresses. Trust me, heads def did when I wore mine!

 Alright ladies, well that’s enough of me rambling on for today. Please join me next Friday on ChunkyChickzWorld as we uncover and discuss more plus size fashion trends.

FASHION FRIDAY: PEPLUM ANYONE???

Hello to all of my fabulous ChunkyChickz out there in the ChunkyChickz Universe. It’s me again from Nominusplus.com and I’m here with yet another wonderful fashion trend for you to try! Today’s trend; The Peplum. I have seen this everywhere; from celebrities gracing the red carpet to me doing some personal shopping in plus size stores all around, The Peplum trend has me going crazy and I love it! Today I’m going to show you how you can create this look for yourself.

The Peplum Dress

Now I must admit ladies, I own a Peplum dress and I am SO IN LOVE! Its tiered look gives me a smooth finish and leaves my tummy in control. With its unique shape, it helps my curves get a distinguished look and let me just say I KILLED in this dress and so can you! That’s me up above in the black and besides me is a better look at the dress. You can find my black Peplum Dress at Fashion to Figure. Along with another great arrangement of Peplum tops and skirts. Not digging the black? No problem! The Peplum dress comes in various styles and colors and can be found online.

The Peplum Top

The main thing that I love about the peplum top is that is so versatile! In the picture in the left it’s paired with a pair of jeans to give a sophisticated classy look and on the right it’s paired with a bandage skirt to give it a bit more dressy look. Both styles are sleek, classy and the peplum top is to thank for that. I’m not sure where you can find the tops above, but various peplum tops can be found at Simplybe, Forever21 and Fashion to Figure.

The Peplum Skirt

And Last but not least, The Peplum Skirt. I love this skirt so much because it’s so different. I love the ruffled look and how you can take a simple tank top and dress it up. The Peplum Skirt is perfect for the times where you want to be just a tad bit dressy but still look the part. I have got to get my hands on one of these skirts this summer because I can just see myself pairing it with a bunch of tank tops this summer season.

So ladies I hope that This Peplum segment has you inspired to try the look out for yourself. Stay tuned to more things fabulous on ChunkyChickzWorld.com and be sure to come visit me over at www.nominusplus.com Until next time ladies, Xoxo and before I forget follow me on twitter at @vintageblondie See ya next Friday!

FASHION FRIDAY: SHEER EXCELLENCE

The one thing that I have fallen in love with this winter is the sheer blouse. And I know, I know winter equals cold weather and I have no business wearing sheer clothing, but I just can’t help but be drawn in by these beautiful blouses.

These beautiful sheer colored blouses from Asos Curve are a fun flirty way to add some spice to your dull work outfit. It also can be transformed from desk chic to party girl if you want to grab a bit to eat with your significant other or the girls. Wear it tucked in to your pants or skirt for a more fitted look and to show off your curves or wear it just out for a billowed, flowy look.

There’s nothing ever wrong with a basic black top. Add some sheer lace to it and it transforms from a simple blouse to a sexy must have edition of your closet. I got this lovely top from Forever21.com and it comes also sleeveless, so throw on your cardi and your favorite boots and don’t let the weather define your sheer excellence.

 

 

Sheer Excellence Tips

  • Add a camisole or a simple tank top under the sheer blouse to conceal your tummy if you’re uncomfortable for it to be showing. The material is thin, so with some tops your bra and tummy will show.
  • Wear it the top with different cardigans, skirts and leggings. Dress it up or dress it down, have fun with it.
  • The Thrift store is another great place to find sheer tops! I have seen soo many at my local thrift stores, so make sure you check it out there to get fabulous sheer finds for great prices.
