What I Wore: Camo Queen

29 Aug 2016

UK plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel shares her camo queen look in an off the shoulder dress in this outfit post featuring items from Simply Be and more. 

If you had told me a year a go that I would feel incredible and confident wearing camouflage, I never would have believed you! And yet, here we are! I feel like a queen in this camo off the shoulder dream! 

Obviously the dress is the centrepiece of this look. This is my first off the shoulder piece, and I'm a big fan! It's a bit tricky keeping the elasticised sleeves in place, but I assume that's pretty standard with Bardot style tops. I generally wear a size 24, but I was able to size down to a 22 in this dress because of the generous cut and elasticised waist. The dress is lined to about mid thigh, and I prefer to wear chub-rub shorts underneath for added coverage, as well as to prevent chub-rub, duh!

At first I wanted to accessorise with black shoes and a black bag, but it made the outfit look too dark. I didn't want it to look like a uniform, you know? So I tried these brown pieces, and it brightened up the look a bit! These shoes are an old style, but they're now available in black, khaki, and snake skin. 

My clutch is vintage, and I've had it since high school! Wow, that makes me feel really old haha! I added the oxblood pom pom keyring to the bag to give it a wee update. Plus the oxblood shade matches my lip colour, so it's a win-win!
