Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #35 TIMELESS

For this week's theme I thought of a few things. Timeless to me means classics like lace, pearls, the little black dress, classic black heels but I also thought of more casual pieces like jeans, shirts, leather jackets etc are really timeless and won't go out of fashion. Styles may slightly change but they are basically the same. 

I am a big believer of wearing what you like and what looks good on you and not whats in fashion. Let's be honest when you look around so many people wear the same things as they are in 'fashion' and it's boring and not very individual. Therefore I really like timeless classics. It's also a great investment as these kind of pieces will serve you for many years and you can change them up to suit the style you are going for.  My advice would be to go for basic classic items that you can accessorize and add other items to to change things up.

This is a timeless smart outfit. Watch out for later in the week when I'll show a timeless casual look.
Classic timeless pieces smart outfit for a special occasion  / Plus size & curvy /  featuring New Look pearl earrings & Dorothy Perkins black lace pencil dress and bow heels and black gold detail envelope clutch
1. Dress - Dorothy Perkins
The little black dress is a total timeless piece and the pencil style never goes out. With the lace detail it's so pretty and adds a little something extra, and let's be honest lace is a total timeless classic. The lace is so well placed it really shows off your figure.

2. Earrings - New Look
Pearls....need I say more? Vintage styles again are a classic. These are glitzy and will totally add some sparkle and class to your outfit.

3. Clutch - Dorothy Perkins
A simple black clutch is a staple for any wardrobe. It goes with everything. Great for smart casual, going out for drinks or for a romantic meal or with smart attire for weddings.

4. Heels - Dorothy Perkins
Oh my gosh I LOVE these! If my ankle wasn't a mess of torn ligaments then these would be on my tootsies! Black heel pumps go with everything to smarten up jeans and a top or to wear with a dress to a smart occassion or a night out with the girls but these will also be great for work. Simple, elegant and easy to go with anything but with just enough detail to make them pretty and not boring.
