Lela Rose is lending the southern charm she’s used to dress first ladies and screen sirens to her spring collection with Lane Bryant. While priced significantly lower than its four-figure counterpart the spring collection remains “reminiscent of her signature style” featuring lavish textiles and a playful color palette.

A favorite of Michelle Obama’s and Jessica Alba’s the Texan native seems excited to be allowing the everyday woman a chance to experience the glamour of her clothing. While some designers veer from of their usual aesthetics with retail collaborations for fear catering to full-figured women will bring logistical issues the Lela Rose Brand found it easy to stay true to their sense of style.  Of branching out into plus-size attire Rose said “all women want to look beautiful, the design philosophy does not change at all”.

On the Market: Charlotte Russe Plus Sizes

PicMonkey Collage 4

There was a time when I was in high school that it was all about Charlotte Russe. I would ride the number 70 bus with my friend Hannah no less than once a week to get a shirt that proclaimed “your boyfriend wants me” or that shopping was, and frankly still is, my therapy. But I always knew there were things my beloved Charlotte Russe just could not provide, like well fitting jeans and dresses that didn’t require me to remove a rib. This is why I am happy to announce that this retailer has just launched Charlotte Russe Plus Sizes.

This line is the stuff of young full figured women’s dreams containing the latest trends at a reasonable cost. Charlotte Russe Plus Sizes boasts comfortable denim, fringe kimonos, cute rompers, and more.

This black chiffon option would be a great whimsical choice for a music festival. The material and cut providing effortless style with the dark color keeping the look practical because let’s face it music festivals involve a lot of sitting in the dirt.
