I was saying to a friend the other day how incredibly proud it makes me seeing the standard and quality of the items being created and brought to market by the Australian plus-size fashion brands. Beautifully made, crafted pieces for the plus-size woman who wants to be stylish, modern and cool. Today’s feature Meri by Design is one of those brands, a luxe label boasting amazing pieces to add a little sophistication to your wardrobe.
I was feeling a little nervous about creating this post after seeing the amazing outfit created by Liv in the sequin cape. Then came the stellar Instagram photos by the Queen of Instagram herself Ashley Rose. It left me wondering how exactly I could incorporate my Meri by Design piece into an outfit that hadn’t been seen before. On more than one occasion I threw on the cape over a dress or jeans for dinner and once for a family lunch. It wasn’t until I noticed I could pull it all the way around that I worked out how I wanted to style it.
As a wrap top tucked into a high-waisted skirt. Let’s face it, not many items could stand up to the drama that this top creates, the print, the style, the luxe feel… Only one skirt would do the job. Mel’s faux leather wrap skirt from ASOS. Even if it was a million degrees and that thing is lined with fleece. A girl has to suffer for fashion sometimes. Especially if that girl wants to knock ’em dead. Don’t you think?
Now you’ve seen how I wear mine, you can check out some of the items that you could make yours. Meri by Design is an uniquely positioned brand that can be described as high-end, luxury with a classic, effortless feel. The pieces would be just as at home paired with dressy thongs as it is with strappy heeled sandals for a night out. Pieces like this will be a wardrobe staple for years to come. The team at Meri by Design says their mission is to design clothes to excite with charm and class. Mission accomplished, right? Goooorgeous.
