I need major fashion advice!
I’m 25 and size 16-18. I usually wear a t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans anywhere I go. However, I’m heading to Coachella at the end of April and wanted to get cute and trendy music festival outfits to kind of fit in with the whole rock and roll vibe. I also need a great swimsuit since we are hitting the beach after Coachella for a few days.
Basically, I need your expertise in where to pick up a great swimsuit that is flattering, but also trendy as well as amazing festival outfits. I’m so out of my comfort zone its ridiculous! If you have any advice on where to shop, I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks so much for your time,
First of all, I’m giving away 2 dresses on twitter, check out the details here!
Second, I’m so jealous of your trip… Coachella is definitely on my list of things I’d love to do! Based on what you mentioned your style was, I thought I’d point you in the right direction with some of my most recent fashion finds that happen to be in my closet right now. If I had to pack for an outdoor music festival, here are the 6 brands I’d turn to right away!
Lysse Leggings: High waist leggings that act as a body shaper? Yes please! These leggings have changed my life… they’re so comfortable and they work for warm days when I don’t want to wear spanx AND pants because these leggings act as both!
Torrid: They have great swimwear for Plus Size Princesses. Flirty and fun with the shapes, cuts and colors to make a Plus Size Princess feel confident on the beach.
ApparelDynasty: I’m sure you’ll spend most of your days in converse sneakers and flip-flops but in the evenings its always nice to step it up. This brand offers funky shoes in extended sizes, check them out!
Fashion to Figure: I ordered my first pieces from FTF a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised! I have their blue floral dress (below) and will be rocking it through the spring and summer. Its light, airy and the fit is super flattering. If you don’t want to show your arms throw on a cardigan or denim jacket!
SimplyBe: They are becoming my new favorite place to shop. Somehow, the UK fashions always have an edge that I can’t find here in the states. Instead of T-shirts, switch things up with a white lace tunic like the one I chose below.
OneStopPlus/WomanWithin: These skinny jeans are super flattering (the wide pockets make my bum look great!). Best of all these jeans come in LOTS of colors… if you love skinny jeans, start mixing up the colors you buy. Blues, greys, pinks… all of those colors will make your t-shirts pop and freshen up your “go-to look”.
Hope this helps… I made sure to choose pieces that are available now, so click the links if you’re interested!
