FASHION | The Best Plus Size Leggings... EVER!

Plus size fashion street style blogger the best plus size leggings

The last couple of weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind.  I've been spending my time in London for events, meetings and catching up with friends.  Its been tiring, motivating and inspiring in equal measures, not to mention fun!

While in the capital, I was able to hang out with my friend Hanna from HannaWears blog.  I met her yonks ago at an event but didn't get to know her properly until I started working with Scarlett and Jo as a Brand Ambassador.  She works for them as well as writing her blog and personal styling.

Every so often you meet someone who really brings out the best in you and that's definitely Hanna.  She's become a friend who really helps me to feel confident and she pushes me to step outside of my comfort zone.  When she asked if I'd like to spend the day at hers taking some street style photos and changing up my style, I was all for it!

I'd actually put together a look specifically for taking down to London with me that was different to anything else I'd worn in my wardrobe before and that's the first look from the day that I want to share with you all.

It centres around the best leggings I've ever worn; the ASOS Curve Legging in PU and Ponte.

They're made of a ponte material thats soft to the touch and stretchy yet these leggings have this sucky in effect that really holds you in place.  They have a wide, stretchy waistband which makes them really comfortable and easy to wear.  I bought these in a size 24 and they fit perfectly, very true to size.  I love how great these make me feel when I'm wearing them, very put together and confident.  The PU, leather look panelling on the front is a totally different look for me.  I feel as though its really stylish and a bit more of a grown up to what I usually wear.

Girls, you need to try these!  They're such high quality and they feel like great fitting trousers (which I can NEVER find because to fit my tummy, they're usually HUGE on my legs).  I love them that much that I've literally just placed an order for my second pair as I've already worn them so much since I got them and want to have another pair in my size ready incase these ones wear out or are in the wash when I want to wear them.

I paired these leggings with a plus size black cami and this black swing t shirt from River Island.  You might have spotted it in my winter fashion haul on youtube as I've had it for a good couple of months now.  I love slogan tops that have statements on them that I really believe in.  This one reads 'Do What You Love' on the side and this is something that I really like to live by.  You only get one life and you really should live it doing what you love.

This top is from the standard section in River Island, I believe its a size 18 and I usually take a 22-24 so if you spot something that you like from their range but you're plus sized and worried it might not fit, give it a go anyway as it may well do.  I have heard on the grapevine that River Island have created a very good plus size line which is due to drop at the beginning of March on their website so keep a check here for more details.

My earrings are also from River Island, they're still available here and are really friendly on your purse!

To coincide with the rose gold lettering on the top, I wore one of my favourite necklaces in my collection, the Pandora rose gold anchor chain and feather necklace.  My shoes are my staple Michael Kors flats which are the most comfortable shoes that I own.  I've worn these none stop for over a year now and they're going to need replacing soon.  While I don't want to have to part with the cash, I certainly will do as they're THAT comfy!

Lastly, the jacket that I paired with this outfit is my Mat Leather Look Waterfall Jacket from Navabi which you may recall seeing in this post.  I've worn it none stop since I got it and can definitely say that it was my best fashion piece of 2015.  I love the leather look material and think that it compliments the PU of the ponte leggings so well.

I absolutely love this look.  Its definitely different for me but it felt great to pick out this outfit and style myself a little differently for my trip to London.  I've really noticed a change in my personal style since the summer and I'm feeling more confident with it by the day!
