A Plus-Size Suit for All Occasions

Posted by on February 19, 2014

When you want to look your best and kick some butt in the board room, a perfectly fitted plus-size suit is a must. Luckily IGIGI has you covered with the IGIGI Lexa Plus-Size Jacket and the IGIGI Monroe Plus Size Pants.

I ordered the IGIGI Monroe Plus Size Pants and the IGIGI Lexa Plus-Size Jacket with the intention of wearing the two pieces together as a suit and they looked fabulous together. I chose to pair the two IGIGI pieces with a cropped, boucle wool sweater with a gold peter pan collar detail and simple, office-appropriate black pumps.

Finding the Perfect Fit: Look Chic with IGIGI Plus-Size Pants

Posted by on February 12, 2014

For a really long time I refused to wear pants. Honestly, I’ve always been more of a skirt or dress girl anyways, but since I live in Chicago – also known as the icy heart of the polar vortex – pants are something of a necessity these days.

Part of my challenging “pants-phobia” came from being unable to find pants that fit the way I wanted them to fit. I would see other women wearing really cool skinny jeans or a perfectly tailored pair of trousers and get really discouraged when I would go shopping for those same styles and find that absolutely nothing similar would fit me. I’m also a little self-conscious about my thighs, but apparently even Beyoncé is a little self-conscious and thinks her thighs are a “problem area,” so I’m in good company.

Transitioning from Winter to Spring in the IGIGI Chelsea Plus-Size Dress in Ombre Floral

Posted by on February 10, 2014

Since it seems like the dreaded “polar vortex” (which would be the best frappuccino name ever, by the way) will seemingly never end here in Chicago, I find myself looking for brighter prints to spruce up my wardrobe and cut through the cold, snowy weather. While browsing the IGIGI site, I came across the beautifully vibrant IGIGI Chelsea Plus-Size Dress in Ombre Floral and I knew that the awesome “sixties flower child” vibe that this dress gives off was just what I was looking for.

The ombre effect of the pattern on the IGIGI Chelsea Plus-Size Dress in Ombre Floral simply means that the color tones on the dress shade into each other and the color is graduated from light to dark. The placement of the ombre shading on the dress starts right under the bust and then goes down several inches, blending to the top of your hips to minimize the smallest part of your body.

The Chelsea Plus-Size Dress in Ombre Floral has an ultra flattering a-line skirt and it is fully lined, like most IGIGI garments, so you don’t have to worry about any panty-lines peeking through.

Colorblocking: A Plus-Size Dress Trend for All Seasons

Posted by on February 5, 2014

The colorblocking trend is still in full force and I am thrilled about it. Colorblocking is one of those trends that anyone can pull off easily and, if you pick colors that are subtle enough, you can wear colorblocked pieces well past their “prime” trendy season, because they can function as an alternate pattern style. Any trend or pattern that’s strong enough to wear from season to season is one that I can get behind.

I recently checked out the IGIGI Evey Plus-Size Colorblock Dress in Black/Royal (for more info, check out the blog post about plus-size colorblocking tips) and was really impressed with how IGIGI mastered the colorblocking trend with their garments, so when the IGIGI Carissima Plus-Size Dress in Malbec went on sale, I quickly snatched it up to capitalize off the similar look and the great price.

The asymmetrical cut of the dress is incredibly flattering and stretches across the body giving some instant slimming power to the waist and hips. The IGIGI Carissima Plus-Size Dress in Malbec has a pretty standard cut, which makes it perfect for the office since it has a higher neckline and a slightly longer hemline. However, the asymmetry and the colorblocking makes it trendy and flattering, giving it that special oomph factor while emphasizing your curves.

Making Your Work Wardrobe Fun Again with Colorful Separates

Posted by on January 31, 2014

It is really easy to get sick of your work wardrobe. Since I am known as being a generally fashion-conscious person, I usually feel a lot of pressure to dress up and look cute, even on days when I sleep through my alarm and don’t have a single clean pair of pants to wear. Luckily, whenever I’m really feeling that I’m in a rut, I can check out IGIGI for some instant outfit inspo.

I was browsing the separates, which are crazy good right now, when I stumbled across the IGIGI Condessa Plus-Size Top in Raspberry, and fell in love with this classic boatneck top that has a literal twist.
