Writer: Alysse Dalessandro | It’s officially August which kids are headed back to school and while I am glad my own school days are behind me, I know that means I have to get ready to trade my bikinis in for snow boots soon. My personal style and love of mesh, crop tops and swimwear lends itself to summer fashion but I love a good bomber jacket too. I decided to take some plus size basics from On The Plus Side and style them for summer and fall.
While you may need totally different pieces for summer and winter, you don’t have to make that transition quite yet. Fall presents a perfect time to keep your basics close and simply add layers and trade sandals for a cute bootie.
The Susanna Tunic is a new arrival for Fall from On the Plus Side but it’s totally something I will wear throughout the month of summer as well. It’s a soft breathable fabric and the 3/4 sleeves roll up easily.It comes in colors that are perfect for Fall: burgundy, olive and black and comes in sizes 1X-7X. I am wearing the 2X. For my Summer look, I paired with denim wooden platforms and Navy cropped leggings from On The Plus Side. They come in sizes 1X-8X. I am wearing the 3X. I have these leggings in black as well and they are one of my go-to summer pieces because they pair easily with summer sandals.
The Tunic is a totally flow-y and has an exaggerated hi-lo cut. I love how short it is in the front and the fact that it almost touches the ground in the back. It just makes me want to twirl!
For Fall, I paired the tunic and leggings with an olive bomber. I know that olive had a moment last Fall but I am not ready to give it up! Tan chunky booties finished off this look.
I may not be ready for Summer to end but I feel much better knowing that I don’t have to give up all of my plus size fashion faves in order to transition to Fall! Make sure you check out all of the new Fall arrivals from On The Plus Side. You may find something you need to add to your Summer wardrobe too while you’re at it!
