I am lucky enough to call Manhattan-based fashion blogger, curvy model and all-around hilarious cool-girl Katie Sturino, my friend. Her amazing body-positive website The 12ish Style, is the perfect destination for style tips and tricks for the curvier bod'. In her popular feature, “Supersize It”, Sturino pulls outfits from size zero models, celebrities and recreates them to fit her size 12 body. I'm honored to have been 'Super-sized' on today's site!
Check out the Supersize feature below:
I met Elle Strauss a couple years ago when she was at Shopbop and I brought my dog in for an interview (very normal, I know…). I was immediately struck by her amazing style plus her British-ness, which of course makes her even more chic!! I ended up following her blog and have been inspired by her outfits ever since.
Our body types and sizes are totally different — she’s petite in every sense of the word whereas I’m tall and curvy — but we all know great style transcends size. And Elle? She has GREAT style. So asking to “supersize” one of her looks was a no brainer!
This boho maxi + cropped biker ensemble is such a great transitional outfit. The black and white color palette keeps it chic while the floaty dress keeps it easy!
To build Elle’s look in my size, I started with Teresa for Eloquii’s maxi dress, which I’m in love with and plan to wear to death this spring and summer! For the jacket, any cropped moto will do but mine is Who What Wear for Target. I feel ready for errands, meetings, you name it in this outfit! Thanks Elle for the inspo and for letting me steal your style 😉
