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.
