Black and White and Asos Curve

As you may have noticed my wardrobe is majority dresses. I don't own a lot of separates because I find them hard to wear. Dresses are simple and generally tend to fit my body better. It's not the tops I have the problem with but skirts and trousers I struggle to find. But over the last few months I have bought quite a few skirts that I am absolutely loving. I started going for midi skirts I can wear in my waist and I really am loving them. I don't know why it took me so long to realise that this was a good look for me (it generally is a great look on plus sized women) but now that I've cracked it I'm hooked - expect to see a lot more. My recent, fave skirt and top combo is this monochrome marvel from Asos Curve...

Black suede wedges with ankle strap (wide fit) - Primark

 The Bardot necklines that are popping up everywhere are an easy way to incorporate a little bit of vintage into your wardrobe every day. It's such a great neckline I just can't get enough of it. The Bardot offerings from Asos Curve are brilliant, but I started with this simple black top. I ordered it in my usual size 22, which fits comfortably on the arms and across the bust. The top is great for tucking into high waisted skirts, but it is not long enough for me to wear with jeans (I'm not comfortable tucking tops into jeans as I think it accentuates my tummy too much). 

You may have noticed that if it has spots on it I will wear it. The midi skirt is also and Asos Curve 22. Made from a heavy jersey fabric it hangs really well. The skirt is quite full (as you can see from the pictures) but isn't a complete circle and when worn in the waist it sits well over the knee on my 5'8" frame (shorter girls might find it a little on the long side). The waist band is nice and thick so it doesn't roll or dig in, and I don't feel the need to wear a belt with this outfit which keeps the silhouette streamlined. The spot print is quite 60s, and so matches perfectly with the Bardot top. Over all I am really loving this outfit and have worn it twice in the last two weeks. Head over to Lolly Likes Fatshion to see how Lolly styled the same skirt.

Do you rock separates, or are you wedded to your frocks like me? Do you shop at Asos Curve? If so, what do you think? Let me know below...


  1. I freaking love that skirt!!!! <3

    Such a fan of the strappy wedges as well. I wish I could wear midi skirts but I really hate wearing heels and I look all weirdly out of proportion if I wear them with flats. Sigh.

    You look ACE though! :) xx

  2. Aw thanks lady, loving the Love Bomibing going on ;)
    I am sure it is not that bad - with midis I think it is all about where they hit on the leg. I say take it up if it makes you feel dumpy without heels. To be honest this is the first pair of heels in my life I have ever worn consistently. Big deal for me. They are super comfortable, wide fit, and best part - they were £12 at Primark!

  3. You look fantastic! I have that bardot top and frequently pair it with my fifties inspired skirts - makes me feel like Grace Kelly!

    1. Thanks lady! I have never felt like Grace Kelly (just don't have the elegance, grace or class) but occasionally I have a Marilyn moment in that top :)

  4. I'm a big fan of the bardot style tops, there's loads of them in primark at the moment & they are totally giving me life! you look phenomenal btw, I live this style on you! Lovelustloves x0

    1. Thanks honey :) So kind! I need to go into Primark and have a little look at their Bardots. Could do with picking up a few other cololurs, and am deffo in the mark for a striped one!
