Ashley Graham, an American, plus-sized model, is putting an end to the stereotypes surrounding body shape. The fabulously curvy supermodel has modeled clothing for Lane Bryant and has her own lingerie line available through Nordstrom. In addition, she has appeared on the cover of numerous fashion magazines including Vogue, Glamour and Elle. Graham was also the first plus-sized model to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. In 2012, she was named Full Figured Fashion Week’s Model of the Year, so she’s an outstanding source of inspiration if you’re looking for styles that flatter a voluptuous figure.

Ashley Graham is spotted in a strappy, black crop top with a below-the-knee, high-waisted black skirt at the “Patrick Demarchelier” special exhibition preview to celebrate NYFW: The Shows for Spring 2016 at Christie’s. She coupled it with black sandals and a black clutch. Ashely says the trick to wearing a crop top for plus-sized women is to wear pants or a skirt that covers the belly button.

Out and about in New York, Ashley is seen here in a sleeveless, knee-length dress with rounded neckline. The dark material is imprinted with an eye-catching, geometric design. She pairs it with cream-colored heels with dainty straps. Small prints and abstract lines are more becoming to a full figure than larger patterns, especially floral prints.

Ashley coordinates sleek, black, leather leggings with a thigh-length, sleeveless top with open back to show off fashionable attire worthy of the office or a casual gathering. The tapered leggings in combination with the pumps visually lengthen the legs.

At formal events, Ashley forgoes glitzy styles and opts for simple, yet chic. This floor-length, black gown encircles the neck while leaving the shoulders bare. A slit on the side reveals the leg, and the cinched waist has a slimming effect. She accentuates the bare shoulders with a pair of drop earrings, and completes the minimalist look with thin-strapped heels.

While enjoying the nightlife, Ashley is seen wearing an off-the-shoulder, knee-length black dress. Slits on both sides of the dress reveal the thighs, and a cinched waist with fuller skirt creates a slimmer appearance. She accessorizes with a gold necklace to draw attention to the neck and shoulders. Black, thin strapped heels complete the look.

In a sporty, carefree environment, Ashley is dressed in casual attire. She couples white slacks with tapered ankles and a red, scoop-neck t-shirt. The t-shirt is short to balance the outfit and create a natural waist. White sneakers coordinate nicely with the slacks.

Interview with fashion blogger – Teng

Today I decided to give you another style perspective. I interviewed this amazing girl. Her name is Teng and I really like her style. She interviewed me too and if you want, you could go and check it out on her blog itsjustteng.wordpress.com

1. How would you describe your blog?

It’s a place where I can share everything I’m passionate about with the world. Fashion and beauty – but also thoughts and opinions. A place where I just can be me.
2. How did you first get in to blogging? Why did you chose to blog about fashion/beauty?
I’ve always liked to share my thoughts and outfits with other people. But it got to a point when people where so tired of listening to all I had to say. So I decided to start blogging as a way to express my love for fashion and to share my opinions about pretty much anything.
3. Do you follow any rules when putting an outfit together?
Not really. The only ”rule” I follow (if it is a rule) is simply that I need to feel comfortable in the outfit I’m wearing. I need to feel like my self and don’t dress up like somebody else just because it’s ”in fashion”.
4. Where do you see your blog in five years?
This is a hard question, haha. I kind of see my blog as a place where I can be me. Express my style and inspire people to do that themselves. And I hope that never changes, I want to continue being me and produce even better content. No matter how many readers I get.
5. What are some of your fashion/beauty must haves & why?
Fashion wise it must be a pair of blue jeans and a white shirt with a collar. I love jeans since it goes with pretty much everything and the shirt can make a outfit go from nah to wow. Just by putting a sweater on top. Beauty wise I always need to have a good chapstick, I can’t stand dry lips. Right now I’m in love with burt bees beewax lipbalm. It has a fresh minty tone to it and I couldn’t recommend it enough.
6. Can you describe your personal style? Where do you get your inspiration from?
My personal style is pretty much clothes that I like. I don’t really follow the latest fashion I just do me. For fall I really like turtlenecks and sweaters with collars. Skirts with knee high socks is also something i love to wear. So I wear what I feel like, and I hope you do the same. Don’t let anyone else tell you what to wear. You do you.
7. Where do you buy most of your clothes from?
I like to buy my clothes from a lot of different places. I really enjoy finding small unknown stores with unique clothes.
8. What’s your go to outfit for work/school?
Right now it’s a pair of jeans with a turtle neck and my brown boots. Since it’s fall and starting to get cold here in Sweden. But in summer I love to wear dresses ans skirts.
9. What’s your go to outfit for a night out?
You could never go wrong with a little black dress. Style it with some heels and a necklace then you’re good to go.
10. What would you never wear?
I should never say never but I really don’t like bootcut jeans. I don’t know why but they are just not really my style.
