There was once a time where I had one permanent look: Denim jeans and blazers. Celebs like Rihanna and Beyonce would always be photographed wearing this look. Whether they were on the go or lounging around the City, this look was a staple in their day to day activities! So guess what, I am bringing this look back with the help of Lane Bryant!
You would think Denim is generic and that most brands can make a jean that satisfies all the ebb and flows of a plus size body. While we know that’s not EVER THE FACT; we find solace in brands that do go above and beyond to perfect denim for hips and curves. A good pair of denim jeans can go a long way, and while Fall is usually the debut of most denim, we all know they are here to stick around throughout the year. Picking a good pair of denim jeans is hard, though. While fast fashion jeans might flatten your belly and flatten your butt (if that’s your thing), investing in high quality will give you a bigger bang for your buck!
So when I saw Kelly Augustine post about her participation in Lane Bryant’s #TheNewSkinny campaign, I already knew where I should start looking to replenish my denim collection. Lane Bryant has over ten pairs of skinny jeans that I can’t seem to stop staring at. The jeans I am wearing are called the SUPER STRETCH SKINNY JEAN WITH RELEASED HEM! It truly is a super stretch so that I would size down from your normal size.
Also, Lane Bryant recently put out a campaign for their latest Blazers! The fashion gawds must’ve picked up on my vibes because I needed a new blazer to wear for dates and work! The PEPLUM-BACK BLAZER is the PERFECT blazer that transitions day to night. Pairing my outfit with a pop of off-white and shades of brown, now I actually look like a celeb that is on the go!!
