Big Girl in a Skinny World: The Perfect Blazer

Looking for that perfect blazer? Here are Ashley's tips for finding it.

Hello Ladies,

I am so glad the spring is here! It goes without saying that blazers are one of my favorite articles of clothing, and there isn't a season more appropriate for them than spring time. It's that perfect transition piece for weather that can't quite decide if it's hot or cold. Blazers also make for ideal layering pieces for curvy girls. A blazer provides crucial structures to an outfit and can really pull together just about any look. I pair mine with jeans and a tank or t-shirt, over a dress or skirt. This wear-with-everything item is well worth an investment. Go out and buy one today!

This season in particular there have been quite a few amazing grey blazers. The ASOS Curve Boyfriend Blazer is one of my favorites in this color block. It's a one-button blazer with a tailored but relaxed fit. Another great grey option: the Textured Boyfriend Blazer from Cream or ivory blazers are also good to add to your layering arsenal. A great ivory option is the Nassau Cropped Blazer.

While browsing the Web recently, I came upon the Black Lace Blazer from Evans—it's a wardrobe classic. I absolutely love this trendy item, especially because lace details are very in this season. It's always refreshing when us plus-size girls get a chance to participate in a trend!

So now you know my must have spring item: the blazer. Do you have any must-have spring items? Picked up any amazing blazers lately? Please share you fashionable finds with me!
