The lovely Plus-Size Fashion Blogger, Sarah of Curvily Fashion took the time to review two of our favorite pieces from the Endless Summer Collection. The Andrea Pant which is a must-have summer item and the Becky Top in Black which is a basic essential.
Check out how she styled these two pieces!
OOTD & Review: IGIGI Joggers
IGIGI one of the pioneers in plus contemporary, has their core aesthetic down pat. They are known for their office-ready dresses and graphic prints, and I’ve worn many of their signature styles in the past. But they aren’t just resting on the tried and true – their latest arrivals include fresh styles and silhouettes, including caftans, asymmetrical hems, and a jumpsuit.
Unlike the jersey knit joggers and harem pants I’ve worn before, IGIGI’s version is a lightweight, silky stretch material. That means there is less give, but a more polished feel. They could easily be styled for work with a jewel tone top and a blazer. The length was great on me – it hit a couple of inches below my calf muscle, and highlighted my ankles.
IGIGI generally runs large, so I typically size down in their dresses. Since this was my first foray into pants from them, I decided I’d order true to my regular pant size, just to be safe. So I was a bit surprised to find that this style runs slightly small. These, a size 16, fit and feel good on, but I could have comfortably sized up if I wanted a baggier “jogger” fit. As it is, the fit is sleeker, while still nodding to the trend – it even has pockets.
Since IGIGI is trying something new with their styles, I figured I’d do the same and push myself with a jumpsuit style outfit. There is an actual jumpsuit in the Endless Summer collection, but I didn’t know if I liked the style enough to go for it (I’ve never actually worn a jumpsuit!). I figured I could get the look with the joggers and a black top, and then split the pieces up in the future. This was definitely the right decision for me: I am already styling this lightweight top and these pants a 100 ways in my head.
Accessories were key to keep the all-black look from falling flat. I went with a tone-on-tone statement necklace and red pumps, and added some waist definition with a chain closure skinny belt. I particularly love the gold detail on the belt – both functional and cool.
All in all, I am loving this new silhouette from IGIGI, and I’m happy they are continuing to expand their offerings – the more stylish plus options, the better! And you will definitely be seeing all of these pieces again – the top and pants are so versatile.
