How often do you try something new? Add new pieces to your wardrobe? As many of you know, I grew up learning that there was a long list of items I shouldn’t wear because I am a plus size gal. Now, I wear what I love but I often find many of my clients are afraid of trying something new because of the list of items they think they shouldn’t wear.

Do you have pieces you would NEVER try on, think to buy or wear, assume they are not for you?  I get it, I do. There are quite a few women that struggle with trying something new because we think it’s not for us. Over the next few months I am going to focus on trying something new and I will choose pieces from various stores and brands. I am going to try on, share, and wear pieces that some may think would never work.

One of those pieces is a plaid blazer. For years I told myself it’s too busy, too much, and/or too overpowering. I decided to try this whole outfit from Evereve because they are all pieces I would never have thought to try.

What do you think?  Would you wear this outfit?  The pieces are the University Blazer, a color block tank by Sundry, and Kut from the Kloth Meg Wide Leg Jeans.

Trying something new is never easy but to my surprise I didn’t find the plaid University Blazer to be too busy or too overpowering. If anything it is actually very comfortable and super versatile. I was able to pair it with a button down shirt, a graphic tee, a camel sweater, and the color block tank. I also swapped out the ivory widely jeans for my dark wash jeans and a pair of navy slacks. I also found that I could pair the University Blazer with black or camel slacks.

The color block tank was comfortable and again, surprisingly versatile. I can wear it with jeans, slack, a skirt and I can also wear it alone in the summer or pair it with a navy, camel, plaid or linen blazer.  I was also surprised at how much I loved the Meg Wide Leg Jeans. I can wear them year round and plan on adding them to my closet.
