Fashion reporter Jess Torres of “I Heart My Body” is dedicated to debunking plus-size fashion myths. With an experimental style and a dare-to-wear attitude, Jess shows us how to take three wardrobe staples to the next level. Reboot your classics with a modern twist using her tips below.
Look 1: Basic Blacks Rebooted
“A pop of color adds flair to any basic black wardrobe staple. I paired this black Carmakoma jacket with a bright blue turtleneck to make it stand out. I also layered a couple of necklaces and did a top knot bun for added texture and interest.”
Look 2: Modern Denim
“One of my favorite ways to style jeans is to pair with a denim shirt. The ‘Canadian tuxedo’ is the perfect way to mix things up. Shoes and accessories in luxe fabrics like suede and fur take this from casual to chic.”
Look 3: Sweater Dress-ed Up
“Sweater dresses are very utilitarian, they just need to keep you warm! I elevated this striped one with a thigh-high suede boot to make it feel like a piece I can wear from desk to dinner.”
