Big Girl in a Skinny World: Trendy Plus-Size Tops

Hello Ladies,

I shop anywhere that I can find young, fresh looks that fit well. I'm the girl who pairs her Target dress with her Louboutin's. This week my latest obsession is Forever 21's plus-size line, Faith21. I went in to the store this week to pick up a few things for my upcoming trip to LA, and fell in love with just about everything they have in store at the moment.

While I really like a lot of the items, it was the plethora of options they had for trendy tops that caught my eye, all of which can be easily paired with a pair of jeans or a great skirt. One of my favorite tops was their Grommet Studded Pullover; it's such a perfect piece to transition into spring. Another trendy option is their selection of nautical-inspired tops. Although I debated between the Striped Pocket Top and Striped Raglan Top, I ultimately picked up the Bead Embellished Striped Top. For a dressier option consider the Studded Stretch Top or the Gathered Center Top.

If you spot something worth buying, be sure to get it in a formfitting size. Any top that is either oversized or too tight will make you look heavier than you are. Try layering a cute jacket or cardigan over sleeveless tops until the weather warms up.

If you spot me in LA, be sure to say hi, and check out my Faith21 gear!
