I Am a Gamine Plus-Sized Fashionista
And we have talked about some of the challenges I have experienced as a fashionista who is plus-sized, and about what it has meant to discover that I am gamine and what gamine signature style is, in general. The infographic I have created marries those topics.
I am sharing the gamine style elements that I have discovered help me the most with plus size style. There are any number of ways to dress gamine, but these are the elements I rely on in my own signature style.
Are you also creating a plus-size gamine capsule wardrobe and signature style? If so, tell me what your greatest challenge has been.
Hope the infographic gives you some ideas.
I'll see you next time!
My Gamine Daily Uniform
Doing the Spring 10x10 Challenge gave me a rather intense focus on each outfit I wore. And that was deliberate so that I could figure out what worked and what didn't work, practice creating gamine outfits & try to create ten outfit formulas I loved, that I could wear during the warm seasons.
Though I didn't create the perfect ten, I did create several workable gamine outfit formulas, and while doing so, discovered two ideal gamine daily uniforms.
Gamine Elements for Each Outfit Formula & Daily Uniform
During the challenge, I discovered that my plus-sized spring capsule wardrobe & each gamine outfit formula needs to have a fitted base, vibrant color, fabric that holds its shape, color contrast and pattern or print mixing. They seem to be the most important gamine elements I need to incorporate for my plus size signature style.
The outfit formulas, themselves, are...
(1) Asymmetrical cardigan + fitted tee + leggings + scarf.
(2) Fitted, striped tee + floral neck scarf + leggings.
Do you have a daily uniform or two?

Most Important Lesson from the Spring 10x10 Challenge
I think the most important thing I learned from the 10x10 challenge is that atypical color combinations can be almost magical in their power. They can transform a color that isn't exciting on its own just by pairing it with another vibrant color. The same is true with mixed patterns and prints.
They, too, can take an ordinary outfit and make it extraordinary.
Right now, I have a limited budget for re-making my wardrobe. I have to use the spring capsule wardrobe I have.
But my strength in overcoming my wardrobe's limitations is in splashy, vibrant, atypical color combinations and mixed patterns and prints.
See you next time!
I want to encourage you & help you uncover which colors make you shine the brightest.
And then, help you create the capsule wardrobe that will empower you to do just that.
