Fall Trends Part 1: Plaid And Cute/Ugly Sweaters

Plus Size Model

I'm so pleased to announce that I am a new staff writer at Bustle, the amazing online women's magazine dedicated to honest stories regarding news, entertainment, fashion, lifestyle and literature! My main topic of coverage: plus-size everything! Perfect, I know.

One of the pieces I did for the fashion page was 3 Fall Trends Plus-Size Women Should be Wearing -- but I wanted to share the extended version of each photo shoot here.

This is probably my favorite fall trend -- as you probably know from my tartan check post. But the combination with another of my autumnal must-have's was so spectacularly ideal that it catapulted me into a fashion high: the cute, ugly sweater. I tend to refer to these fairisle print sweater dresses as cute&ugly because there is that grandma feel to them with a metamorphosis of Zooey Deschanel cuteness that I fall for every time.

I first saw this ASOS Curve jacket thanks to Nicolette, who posted it in one of her weekly best round ups a few months ago, and thankfully, it's still available. I stand by what I wrote in Bustle: "It's got that boyfriend feel to it that adds just the right amount of androgyny without obscuring the overall femininity of the outfit."

Overall, there's a boyish girly girl-ness to this outfit that I'm in love with. The jacket gives the slackish-guy-shoulders while the sweater dress hugs the curves stunningly. And the Dr. Martens...I just didn't think this outfit could not have Dr. Martens.
