2015 has definitely been the year where my style has evolved. It has grown up in a lot of ways and if you’d said to me a couple of years ago that I’d be wearing all black on the regular, I’d never have believed you. Now, its quite a usual occurrence for me and thanks to Navabi plus size fashion, I’ve been able to add another all black everything outfit to my wardrobe.
One of the most comfortable pieces in my wardrobe right now has to be the Gozzip A-Line Pocket Dress. I love the relaxed, wide a-line cut of the dress which enables it to fit a number of sizes. It is very much a throw on and go piece that you can dress up with some accessories equally as easily as you can dress it down for a casual but put together look for everyday wear. The shape is fabulous because it feels like a swing dress and falls beautifully.
It is made of a beautifully soft jersey fabric that has plenty of stretch in it and retains its super black colour, shape and elasticity through multiple washes, ensuring that it’ll always look brand new.
On the front of the dress, theres a little pocket detail which is made from a shiny woven fabric. I probably would never actually keep anything in the pocket but it provides a nice contrast to the rest of the dress and I always think that its great to play with textures when you’re wearing an all black outfit so that it isn’t just a blank colour canvas.
While this dress could be worn alone, I thought it best to pair it with some plus size black leggings to keep the outfit looking daytime appropriate and I added my gorgeous ankle boots from Office. These ones are in a black patent leather with quilting and a copper buckle and I’ve worn them so often since I bought them last winter. Office have so many gorgeous styles of boots in this year, in fact, they have the largest selection that I’ve seen. They’re very much the place to go to for great footwear.
To keep me warm in this cold weather we’re experiencing, I added what has to be my favourite clothing item of 2015 to my outfit; the MAT Leather Look Waterfall Jacket.
I have been looking for a leather/pleather jacket for so long and finally I have found one that literally fits like a glove. I always liked the look of leather jackets worn open rather than closed but found that they were just too bulky looking and always seemed to be ill fitting.
However when I saw this one online, I decided to take the risk and order it. When it arrived, I was literally overjoyed. It sounds ridiculous to be so pleased with an item of clothing but please appreciate that I’ve been looking for a piece like this for a good ten years.
What is great about this leather look jacket is that the material is lightweight yet it still keeps you feeling warm. It combines a smooth leather look fabric with a suede like fabric, mostly on the inside and on the long sleeves it has rib knit inserts that stretch to fit the size of your arms. This is fantastic as it means that it holds its shape when you’re wearing something this or sleeveless underneath but if you have a thicker jumper on then it’ll also stretch to fit your arms with that on too.
The mix of fabrics make this a really stylish piece, as does the waterfall shape which creates a lovely contrast between the often tough looking leather style fabric and the open, floaty cut of the jacket. Waterfall pieces are my absolute fave as they look great with so many different pieces in my wardrobe, instantly dress up an outfit and look super flattering.
I seriously cannot recommend the MAT Leather Look Waterfall Jacket enough. It is my favourite find this year!
For jewellery, I opted for gold chain pieces to toughen up the look but still keep the femininity with the diamantes and I added my Tiffany ring that I bought in Mexico years ago! My bag is, of course, my trusted Mulberry Lily in black with gold hardware.
For my first order from Navabi, I’m super impressed. I have one more piece to show you which I’ll share in another post but from the outset, I’ve got to say that I’m so happy with the service, fast delivery and premium packaging.
