Here comes the sun — and with it a dazzling array of spring trends to try. We all know that spring trends are similar for all women, but often the shopping experience is not. That’s why we make it easier for women of all shapes and sizes to look and feel great in flattering fashion in sizes 2-24. And we couldn’t be more excited to have our guest fashion blogger, Sara Sohail from The Prep Gal here to help guide the way. From vintage-inspired denim jackets over pretty dresses to of-the-moment bell sleeves paired with the most comfortable jeans EVER, Sara has created looks you’re sure to love this season and beyond.
Sara here! I hope you’re having a great week. For today’s post, I’ve pieced together two really great spring outfits. The first one is this plus fashion maxi dress with strappy neck details in plum rose.
This color is beautiful for the warmer months ahead and fits like a dream. As a tall girl, I get nervous about wearing maxi dresses because sometimes the length isn’t long enough, but that wasn’t the case with this dress. The stretch in the material hugs my curves perfectly and allows me to easily move around.
I love layering dresses with either sweaters or jackets, as it creates a more refined outfit, and I opted for a denim jacket for this look. The contrast stitching, copper/gold-toned buttons, and the soft stretchy material makes this an essential piece for every woman’s closet.
For the rest of the accessories, I went with gold tones to complement the buttons of the denim jacket. The gold colored disk earrings are fun and have a retro vibe to them. And the beaded gold sandals are stylish and very comfortable.
The second outfit features these fab DenimFlex™ plus size cropped jeans. After wearing these jeans once, they quickly became my favorite pair because of how incredible the fit was.
The cropped jeans are high-rise and have a slightly frayed hem, which is a huge trend right now. I also think the four button closure is very chic and can’t wait to wear these jeans with a tucked in top to show this fun detail off.
I also can’t stop obsessing over bell-sleeved tops, so I was so excited to see an off-shoulder bell sleeve (two of my signature looks). This top has vertical stripes, which elongate the body, and an elasticized top that makes it easy to wear off the shoulder.
To finish the look, I chose these adorable faux-suede mules, double drop gray bauble earrings, and a gray crossbody bag (pretty sure this will be my go-to all spring long). I love mules, and think they are one of the best shoes you can wear when you’re having a long day, or if you’re going to be doing a lot of walking. This pair is extremely comfortable, and high quality. They come in taupe and black too!
