COLD WEATHER OUTFITS, FASHION TIPS

3 ways of styling Jeggings during cold season

I don’t know if you also feel like its July and not September!

Evidently, the weather pattern has dramatically changed. I’ve heard so many people complaining that the cold wasn’t kind enough to warn them! Well to help you curb the cold, today i’m going to share with you three quick ways of rocking jeggings.

You might love your dresses, skirts or denim but heavy Jeggings are another great alternative of keeping you warm and stylish especially when the weather is alittle bit gloomy. The essence is to find good quality ones with a great fit.

I will basically be styling black turkish Jeggings which I got from Unisex Midland Boutique, along Monrovia Street. They have been my besties for over 3 years. Oh yes! and i’m still sold out on them like 100%. They are one of my wardrobe staples because they have a remarkably comfortable amount of stretch which is very key for me as a plus sized woman.

Look 1: Jeggings with an orange mini butterfly waterfall

My very first look pairs the Jeggings with this cute mini butterfly waterfall. The pieces blend so well with these black midi boots which have served me for quite a while from Qash Kali. I’m really hoping they have them in stock just incase you want them. If they don’t have you can always recreate with similar or even better ones.

Love this shade of orange. It tremendously brightens everything up.

This waterfall is one of my favorites from Vivo Woman. The black cowl tunk top I’m wearing inside is also from the same store.The last time I checked they had the waterfalls in turquoise, yellow, blue and pink amongst other colors.

I decided to go with these midi boots which introduced a whole new edgy touch to the entire look.

Look 2: Jeggings with an off white kimono

The same Jeggings and black cowl top, were paired with this off white long kimono for the second look. I love the way it beautifully drapes. Kimonos are always in my inner circle of essential wardrobe pieces. The texture is so lovely. Not only is it warm but the comfort is amazing too.

I wore these black and white sneakers. I think they add an element of casual interest to the look.

This look would definitely have looked more chic with cute sandals as well but since it was abit wet I opted for these sneakers.

Look 3: Jeggings with poncho

For my third look I rocked this warm grey poncho from Jade Collections. The material is so soft against the body. Love the interesting checked pattern going on.

I side tucked the poncho to add some sass. You definitely don’t have to tuck it in.

I finally crowned the look with these ankle boots from heel to toe for that polished look.

I probably should have gone abit bold with accessories but I opted for a chilled out look today. You can definitely elevate all these looks with accessories of your choice.

Welcome to my fashion blog!

When i enrolled in university for a Business Management Course, my sisters used to tell me that I’d chosen the wrong career path! They knew i had burning passion for style and fashion. True to that, i have a very keen interest on style and fashion. I enjoy experimenting pieces of garments together. Getting dressed is like having a ”happy hour” to me.

My body frame is what I’d call “plus size”. This has never stopped me from dressing it in a flattering way! My late brother played a great role in encouraging me to follow my dream and start this blog. Unfortunately, i kept on postponing this hence limiting myself with excuses which didn’t hold any water. I now echo the sentiments from this famous quote “the only limits are the ones which exist in our minds”!

My aha moment happened during the Covid 19 Pandemic. As we were locked-down, i had a lot of reflections about my life and got inspired to finally start my own fashion blog, ”Authentically Ritah” which i launched on 23rd June, 2020.

Styling plus size body frames can be challenging at times in so many different aspects and that’s where I come to your rescue! I’m not a fashion guru but I believe I can share with you one or two things which i’ve learnt about fashion in my own authentic way. The fashion world has endless possibilities to be explored.

I will be showcasing to the world that curvy ladies or as some would call them ‘plus sized’ have more stylish options. Stay tuned!
