Get Ready to Party with Lane Bryant

Lane Bryant is arguably one of the top go-to resources for plus size women. It has a contemporary signature style which appeals to sophisticated, trendy full figured fashionistas. LB has recently partnered with some top designers to bring high fashion items to it core shoppers who want to look and feel like they stepped off a runway or out a magazine, but at an affordable price.

I took inspiration from their marketing photo of this skirt and gave the look a casual spin by pairing a denim shirt from my closet with a white tank from the store. I'm actually loving this "funky formal" (my term) style I've seen on a couple of stores' sites. There's a lot of mixing & matching of casual and formal pieces, which really expands the options for women who want to shake up their typical styling choices.

This look is virtually all from LB with the exception of the denim shirt, which is one of many in my wardrobe. Other than that, tank top, skirt, and shoes are all from Lane.  I haven't been able to find it on the site, but I know it's still in stores as I saw it on a recent trip.

If you can't find it in your local store (or don't have one near and have to order online), check out these other festive skirts from LB. Any of them are ideal for a cute & chic 'fit for your upcoming soiree!

Switching gears now...

Here's another option for your upcoming holiday party. Some women prefer pants over dresses & skirts, and even I like to throw on some leggings and a long top every now & again when going out. The leggings caught my eye first...I love the liquid leather look. I bumped into the top (which I got three sizes bigger so it could fit me like a dress) while browsing the through racks. The associate said it was the last black one in the store...mine, mine, mine! (Come to find out two of the associates were wearing the top in red.)

The red pumps called out to me on the way to the fitting room and basically said "you need me to complete this look!"

This look is almost head to toe LB except for the red clutch from my closet and some of the jewelry (the necklace is from Lane). Sadly the top appears to be missing from the site (it should be available in stores as it comes in red & black), but thankfully the leggings (Shine Leggings) and shoes (Lace Up Strappy Heel) are there so grab them while you can. The shoes run big so you could probably go down a size, but the comfort rating is at the "I can walk in them and be OK for at least 20 minutes" level.

Let me know which look you fits your style!
