My playlist of choice? A compilation of Donna Summer’s Greatest Hits to get me in the mood for the new season; sunshine and style is what I’m defining it as. We may not completely be there yet but I’ve started loading my #ootds while I wait for the days to get longer.
I teamed up with Donna, the plus-size retailer that’s got the goods when it comes to some of my Summer essentials. What am I talking about? 70’s inspired palazzo pants, off-the shoulder tops and wide brimmed hats. Here’s how I meshed some of the season’s trends in a easy and casual way. I like to always keep my silhouette in mind when opting for looser clothes because I want to avoid looking drab. Things to consider are: waist line and length. You also want to make sure that you accentuate your best features – high-waisted pants are great for creating that hourglass shape and wider leg styles creates the illusion of length. Gone are the days when “big” girls couldn’t be stylish. Now is the time to play with colours and prints, go get yourself that Hot Stuff at Donna and live your best life while the Summer sun keeps loading.
Join the revolution. #DonnaGirl
