We all know that great style is not limited to a certain clothing size. That’s where The 12ish Style comes in—a fashion blog by Katie Sturino dedicated to women sizes 12 to 18-ish. In her new column for Who What Wear, Katie will offer up her shopping tips, styling tricks, and outfit inspiration for women who aren’t a size 2.
Metallic silver (you might have seen it here) is one of fall’s most head-turning, statement trends, and yet it’s way more wearable than it looks. I’m not talking about silver as a finishing touch or as an under-the-radar accent. The 2017 way to wear the futuristic hue is to go bold. Make it the hero of your outfit, and whatever you do, don’t save it for nighttime use only.
Ready to make silver your new neutral? Keep reading for two outfit formulas that work for all sizes (I wear anywhere from a 12 to a 16), and get ready to take this season’s favorite metallic from day to night.
If you add one piece of outerwear to your fall shopping list, make it a shiny silver parka like this one by Tory Sport (available in sizes XS to XL). Pair it with athleisure separates like this Outdoor Voices crop and matching legging for a fresh spin on sporty basics. A bright woven tote finishes the look.
Wear it to work, wear it running errands, wear it to dinner… whatever you do, don’t underestimate the multitasking power of a silver pleated midi skirt, like this gunmetal version by Eloquii (available in sizes 14 to 28). A graphic tee like this one from my capsule collection with Eloquii, featuring my three rescue dogs (with a portion of proceeds going to the Humane Society) adds the perfect casual spin. Simple white sneaks and bold earrings always work in the daytime.
