I remember when I hated suits. I felt they were just a contraption made to have you look boring. Suits were something drab that I would wear when I need to go on an interview. Remember those days when suits in plus size were just ill fitting and only in black, beige or the occasional charcoal? I must say that plus size suits have come a loooooonnnnnngggggg way. Once something that I would just avoid in stores, now it is something that I not only want to wear, but I look amazing in.
I love plaid, it a definitely a mainstay in my wardrobe, so when I saw this plaid suit from Eloquii, I was immediately drawn to it. I have tons of blazers, but this double breasted version is super chic. For an added little surprise the pockets have ruffle details and on the sleeves. I am wearing a size 20 in the blazer, and it had plenty of room in the arms. My biggest concern with jackets is having enough room along the back to ensure that I don't feel restricted. This was a perfect fit for me. All that was needed was to push up the sleeves and I was ready to go.
The pants are Eloquii's Kady pants (which I love), and the length on these were perfect. When it comes to my dress pants, I favor ones that hit at my ankle or slightly below. I wear a 16 in the Kady, and these had plenty of room in the thigh without feeling tight. What I also love about the Kady is that I can wear these high up on my waist so that I can wear a cute crop top like the one here and not feel overly exposed.
With these being separates, I can easily wear the blazer alone with one of my favorite dresses, and pair the pants with a tee and sneakers. Not only are plaid suits big on the runway this season, but it's always a versatile piece that will never go out of style. Since I was running around attending events that day, I went with my slides from Aldo that I love so much. They pair well with the suit and just make the entire look effortlessly chic and comfortable. If you are in the market for a great statement flat mule, check out these from Aldo.
