As plus size women we have to be creative when it comes to shopping in order to broaden our personal style. Every now and again we have to venture into straight size stores to see what new styles they have. As I advocate on this blog, sometimes you have to focus on the cut and not the size when you’re not shopping in plus size stores in order to get some of the trends and looks that plus size brands don’t carry. You never know what goodies you may find.
Today I wanted to share with you a few spring pieces that I love from American Eagle. Aside from carrying jeans and super cute tees, surprisingly American Eagle has a pretty nice collection of dresses, blazers, and bags. While I can’t fit any of their jeans because they’re all low rise and do not accommodate my voluptuous hips and derriere, I do love buying their girlie tops and feminine blazers. In case you didn’t know, American Eagle goes up to a size 18 and XXL in their clothes. For this spring season I’m coveting quite a few of their pieces to update my wardrobe and the best part is that they’re all under $40.
