Meet my friend and client, DeLo!
DeLo is a graduate of Michigan State University, a lover of education and an up and coming comedian in the Detroit area. She is beautiful, funny, charming, witty, intellectual and an all around joy to be around. DeLo has ambition and drive and wants her wardrobe and personality to show just that.
I paid DeLo a visit last week to help her style some of the items in her closet. Above you will see her posing in a beautiful skirt that is a great match for her vibrant personality. Although this skirt is great to match DeLo for a summer day out with friends and family, if she were doing a show or an interview about her comedy we would dress her more witty/Casual sleek (post coming soon). When talking about this particular skirt, DeLo was unsure of how to wear this. Without much thinking I immediately asked, “Do you have a blue jean shirt?” Of course, she did because a blue jean shirt is an essential for men and women!! (Get one! Ladies click here, Plus size ladies click here, Men click here, Plus Size men click here)
We decided to take a regular blue jean shirt loosened the top 2 buttons, tied the bottom to give her waistline some love (always give yourself a waistline when wearing patterns if you are almost plus to plus size) and added tan/brown booties and she is runway ready. (She is not wearing shapewear, but we would add shapewear to make her more confident and slimmed out if she were wearing this out).
DeLo does not wear many accessories but for someone who does, I would pair this with a single large bangle that is any of the bright colors in this skirt (pink, purple, orange, yellow, blue) as well as a costume ring and dangle or hoop earrings. If you are in to purses, this would be excellent with a bright colored short handle bag or large flat clutch.
Thank DeLo! You look fabulous!!!
