Lovely Layers For My Lady Lumps

Lady Lumps In layers
This time of year can be tricky to dress for. Its too cold to wear just a cardigan but often donning a coat can turn you into a sweaty mess when the sun makes an appearance. I'm tackling this heads on with some clever layering.

Layering can be something that plus size hotties are unsure of, afraid that it will make then look bulky or lumpy but if done correctly it can be such a flattering look and a great way to play with fashion.

The key is to choose your fabrics and cut carefully. Here I've got a lightweight Kimono sleeve cropped  jumper  by Bon Prix which I've worn over a long vest by Primark.
Lightweight fabrics are key to getting layers right

 I love the wide neck offering a flash of shoulder and that it ends just below my tummy. To counter balance the square shape of the jumper I've teamed it with a fitted jersey skirt also by Bon prix  which with its fab floral pattern adds a nice flash of colour and hugs my curves without drawing too much attention to my Buddha belly.

Yet again playing with proportions I've put this with leggings and chunky boots, a great combination of girly and functional.

Finally because I always feel I look like a shelf of boob if I wear jumpers in one colour I've put on a snood by New look, its cowl neck effect also draws the eyes to the centre of my body and adds a bit more interest to what could be quite a plain outfit.

Autumn is such a great time to play around with clothing proportions, skater skirts over little vests with huge baggy cardigans, body con dresses with biker boots and hoodies,if you are stuck in "safe" mode with how you put things together have a riffle through your wardrobe and try a few different looks.Extra Large=Extra Stylish.
