Black And White Chic With A Pop Of Color

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Last week the weather was just perfect. We had two days where the weather was in the 80’s and then the remainder of the week, the weather was in the 70’s. The weather is one of the reasons I love the beginning of fall. For the beautiful weather I decided to wear a couple of simple yet bold transitional pieces.

I saw this cape top at JCPenney. It’s from Ashley Nell Tipton collection. I was skeptical about it but when I tried it on, I instantly fell in love with it. The cape detailing has more of a draped style. I could rock this top with just about anything.


I paired the top with this black and white trim knit skirt from New York & Company. NY&CO goes up to a size XXL. Their knits offer enough give to fit up to a size 22. The skirt has a slit in the front and a banded waist. Knits are great options to start buying before the weather gets cold. This skirt can be worn with tights and boots as the weather gets cooler.


I wanted to add a pop of color with accessories for this look. I carried a red snakeskin clutch from Neiman Marcus, earrings from SC Fashion Jewelry, a statement necklace from New York & Company, and a pair of strappy Nine West Sandals. I even slipped on a gold bracelet from F21, and my Michael Kors watch.
