In the past few weeks, I have gone through a wardrobe detox. Out with the old, I feel freshed and energised. There is something about a fresh new piece of fabric against your skin that makes you really appreciate what a style update can do. Key pieces can play an important role in how you feel when you dress, and right now I am embracing florals and updating jeans with slouchy tees in deep, rich colours. This beautiful floral bomber jacket caught my eye on The Iconic, an Australian online retailer that launched its Curvy (Plus Size) section last year. It, along with the gorgeous wine coloured tee, are part of the debut collection from Wonderlust, a plus size label found only on The Iconic.
The Oversized T-Shirt is stretchy and silky smooth, made of a mix of elastane and modal. It skims over any lumps of bumps and hangs perfectly on my body. The exposed seams and breast pocket give it a relaxed, almost masculine feel and I love how it drapes down against my decollage. The length is perfect and after an entire day of wear looks as comfortable and effortless as it feels. As the name says, the shirt has a relaxed and ’oversized feel’. I am wearing it is a size medium. The Oversized T-Shirt retails for $35.00 and comes in Wine and Grey Marle and can be purchased here.
The Floral Bomber Jacket was a surprise for me, but it doesn’t change how I feel about this gorgeous jacket. The feminine floral print stands out against the strong onyx background and makes this masculine style easy to wear for me. I love the fitted waistband and wrists; it gives it a sporty feel. The zipper is strong and the pockets are big enough to hold my keys. After wearing the Floral Bomber Jacket to work and out casually, I cannot wait to wear it during summer or spring over dresses or with shorts. The jacket itself is made of a strong cotton and is unlined, it lacks the warmth of a true bomber jacket. But what it lacks in warmth, it gives in style. It’s a head turner and you’ll certainly give off that effortless cool vibe while wearing it. I am wearing the Floral Bomber Jacket in a size 20 and I could have downsized to a size 18. The Floral Bomber Jacket retails for $139.00. You can purchase the Floral Bomber Jacket here.
