Leather, fur- these are some of my favorite things. Though faux leather and fur have come a long way, when I am able to find real leather pieces in my size, I am extremely happy. One of the latest brands I have been raving about- Ellos makes plus size leather items. Cue the Snoopy Happy Dance! I love having options, and no matter what size you wear, options to wear great items should always be accessible. Fullbeauty is definitely on my list of resources when I am looking for great items.
Currently the brand has a leather top and pants. Though the leather pants were calling my name, I decided to go with the leather top. I went with the top for several reasons. First, I have been adding more versatile tops into my wardrobe. With all of the pants and jeans I have been in love with and bought over the past several months, I needed a great top that can stand out, but play nice with others. A black leather top does that hands down. With leather items, I always suggest sizing up. I went with a size 20, so that I had enough room in the arms and across my chest. What I love about this- besides being leather, is that the length of this top is perfect. It's hits perfectly at my hip, so you can wear it like I did with a pair of jeans, or tuck it into your favorite skirt. The options are endless. Second reason to go with a leather top- warmth. It's getting cold in NYC, and items that make you look good but can keep you warm are a must have.
While we are on the topic of staying warm, I wanted to share this great coat. If you follow me on Snapchat (@styleoversize) I tried on this coat at the Ellos Fall Preview, and immediately fell in love. Coats in the winter time are how I make a statement. It's a great way to incorporate color, or a print. I love a good leopard print, and this coat would be a great addition to any woman's closet. If you all about a good coat, I suggest this one. If leopard is not your speed, the coat does come in black. There is also a belted version that comes in burgundy that is cute as well. There are plethora of coats out there for us. If you want color, rock color, if you want black, rock black. There are more options than ever that having you looking great without breaking the bank. Trust me there are out there, and once you find that one coat that makes you feel fancy, you will never want to take it off.
Are you all about leather, or are you a fur lady? Perhaps sequins? Let me know in the comments. Until next time lovers! Muah!
