Look 1: Strapy jumpsuit + white sneakers
Look 2: Strapy Jumpsuit + White Sneakers

I talk a lot about versatility and cannot stop emphasizing on how white sneakers are one of the most versatile wardrobe pieces which you could ever think of. The sneakers being styled are Umbo ladies sneakers from Shop Zetu. They are very comfy & easy to clean. If you wanna shop them, the link is in the comments box.

I find this second style to be such a chilled out effortless look. Who ever imagined that one can actually wear sneakers with jumpsuits? Not this lady right here but the beauty about fashion is that it’s an art and you can explore! Wide legged jumpsuits work best on plus sized women. This particular jumpsuit has a lot of movement which makes it super comfy. The black and white stripes give it such an interesting look. Whether plain colored, floral or striped you can go for any wide legged Jumpsuits of your choice if you want to achieve this look. I threw in a belt to help define that waist area.

A while ago I shared Life Changing Tips to Consider When Buying Your Jumpsuits as a Plus Sized Woman. In case you missed the post, check it out right here. You can also add layers to your jumpsuit Incase it’s chilly. If going for a blazer, just be sure to pick one which is slightly above your hips for that chic look since the jumpsuit is a wide legged one.

Overally this is such a great look if you like your feet comfy and at the same time want to score high in terms fashion.

I have put links to all the stores where I got the outfits. You can check them out but Incase you miss you can always recreate your look with similar outfits of your choice.

Monochromatic outfits explained – Style and fashion

I believe we all love to look awesome but as much as the fashion world is flooded with so many trends, unfortunately most of them do fade!Today lets take a look at the Monochromatic Fashion. This is a trend which you most probably have rocked at some point.

But first things first;

What is a monochromatic outfit?

The word “monochrome” is actually a combination of two words. Mono means single. Chromatic on the other side means color. So simply said, a monochromatic outfit is one which consists of one color which dominates your overall look.

Lets take a look at some of the benefits which you can reap from wearing a Monochromatic Outfit:

1. It’s Timeless

This trend  has stood the test of time and will always remain ageless. You can never go wrong with this one. When you are not sure of what to wear, go monochrome. It’s here to stay not this year not next year or even the years afterwards.

2. It’s effortless

You don’t really have to overthink when putting together a monochromatic outfit. Since you are going for one dominating color, you save yourself the hussle of looking for complementing colors. It actually reduces decision fatigue! As long as you master afew basics, you are good to go!

3. Gives you a refined look

Going monochrome actually makes you look simple but not boring. It’s a distinctive way of dressing that makes you look smart, elegant, mature and sophisticated.

4. Works with any color

The joy of going monochromatic is that it works with practically any color. You can actually play with a color of your choice be it pink, purple, green, red…you name it.

The thing is going for colors which go well with your skin tone. You don’t want colors which wash out your face or make you look pasty.

Final Thoughts

I hope this post has helped you understand what a monochromatic outfit is…just incase you didn’t. Monochromatic outfits don’t have to be boring. In my next post i will be showing you HOW TO ELEVATE A MONOCHROMATIC OUTFIT FROM BASIC TO FUN.

On the flip side, fashion trends do come and go. It’s hence wise to invest in trends which are timeless. The Monochromatic Trend is one of a kind. You can consider experimenting and having fun with it. Find pieces which flatter your skin tone, figure and be sure to keep it elegant!

A pop of color: Style & Fashion

Playing around with bright colors is one of the great things you can do when it comes to dressing. Whether it’s color blocking or going for complementing colors you can brighten you overall look with the simplest of outfits without necessarily breaking the bank. One thing I enjoy doing, is pulling out an outfit effortlessly.

There are so many interesting combinations that can arise from playing around with colors to make you unique. You can also add a pop of color by going for bright accessories and let the colors do the magic. The choice is absolutely upon you.

Today I’m rocking this crop top in tropical colors combined with a double layered mastard skirt. The combination creates such an interesting color palette for that edgy look. Besides that the Comfort is so amazing.

What are your favorite color combinations? Do you prefer color blocking or going for complementing colors?

How to select an athleisure Outfit

Gone are the days when the only time to rock active wear was while going to the gym! Thanks to the athletic brands which are working tirelessly to incorporate fashion and style into their pieces.

Today’s article is going to give you a basic guide on how to select your athleisure outfit.

What is an athleisure outfit?

Just In case you aren’t aware, an athleisure outfit is a trend of wearing active wear outside the gym. This could probably be while traveling, catching up with friends, doing your day to day errands or just chillings at home. It is actually a fashion statement on its own.

If you love the the trend here is a basic guide on how to rock an athleisure outfit:

  1. Active bottoms

When building an athleisure outfit, the first thing to consider is bottoms. Go for your favorite active wear bottoms. This could be yoga pants, joggers or leggings.

I went for these black joggers. They are very comfy and the stretch is super amazing which is very key for plus size women. If you are looking for a pair of go-to joggers, then check out Nairobi Sports House. I actually got these pair from them.

Besides the gym, this outfit is very quickly becoming a favorite while traveling or going about errands.

It is always good to have shopping options. If you know of a store which has good quality joggers, feel free to share that in the comment box below this post.

2. T-Shirts or Tank Top

The next thing to consider while pulling an athleisure outfit is adding a chic tee or tank top. A long-sleeved tee will work well on those chilly days.

I like this sleeveless top on warmer days. I love the fact that it is lightweight, very soft and comfortable. The quality is also very amazing.

3. Footwear

Don’t forget your feet. You can go for the classic sneakers. You could still rock sandals for that chic athleisure look. I’ve seen some rock heels with their outfits and they still look amazing. The choice is all yours.

I rocked my pink sneakers. These shoes are also from Nairobi Sports House. They are a total win in terms of comfort. They have amazing details such as a breathable upper mesh. The inner cushioning is out of this world.

4. Layering piece

You can consider adding a third layer to cater for weather dynamics such as cold. A cute denim jackets or any other of your choice would beautifully complete your athleisure look.

I went for this cute zip up jacket which i got from Vivo Woman a while ago. The jacket undeniably adds some element of sass to the whole look.

If you love accessories you can definitely throw them in.

We are already in October. Can you believe it? I don’t lol!

I hope this post was of help if you are trying to build an athleisure outfit.

Alternatives to Jeans, casual

What can i wear instead of JEANS?

Most of you have requested for casual alternatives to the classic jeans. I’m excited to let you know that today i’m going to be sharing with you a stylish option that will work perfectly well as a casual outfit.

I adore my classic jeans and jeggings but truth be told, there are certain occasions when dresses will work well compared to these pieces. Today i’m rocking this black stripped knee length dress. Its one of the perfect alternatives to jeans when dressing casual.

The material stretches so well which is very essential for me as a size 16. I love the fact that the material is not too clingy. The height works well for me and the comfort is superb. Of course i paired it with white canvas, my favorite for weekends when I’m up and down running my errands for that extra comfort.

When you are done with errands and want to elevate that casual look, you can swap the canvas with sandals. Just remember to get sandals which are comfy and easy to move around with. Throwing in a slim belt will also give you that sassy look.

I hope you are inspired by this casual alternative look to jeans.

The weekend denim vibe

The weekend is here again and it’s undoubtedly a favorite time of the week for many!

Who doesn’t loove weekends!The me time, unwinding, catching up with family and friends is among the little precious things that rock weekends. This is always the time to let your hair loose, dress down and just take a breather from the hussle n bussle of the week.

My go to weekend piece is denim. It’s such a chilled out timeless fabric which can give you that relaxed vibe. This denim skirt is so perfect for weekends. The darker wash is versatile and you can blend it with almost any colors of your choice. If you know me, you will know canvas are my staples for the weekend. I find this particular ones very comfy especially if you are going about your errands. There is something special about them in white!

I find that brighter tops pair really well with darker washed denim. This cute white floral top did just that. It brightened the denim beautifully.

In whichever way you rock that denim skirt, have a pleasant weekend.
