Mind the Curves in Queenspark

Plus size fashion feature: Floral bomber jacket from Queenspark

If it weren’t for our desperate need of rain here in Cape Town, I’d say I wish the weather could always be like this. The skies are sunny and it’s warm enough to be out in a t-shirt, but not so hot that you get all sticky and flustered.

I find dressing for this season a challenge though – my winter staples are all far too warm, but those flimsy summer dresses aren’t quite cutting it either. At the same time, I want to get my last few ‘frock days’ in before I have to reluctantly bid them goodbye until warmer days are back again – let’s just face it, this plus size fashionista is really not a pants person.

On one of my recent perusals of Queenspark (which has REALLY upped its plus size fashion game) I found this satin bomber jacket, and although a little out of my usual style scope, I quickly fell in love. Turns out it’s been the perfect thing for the season – just the thing to go over a t-shirt when the day starts chilling off, or even over a warmer jersey if it’s proper cold. I love that it can be dressed up or down – a really versatile piece.

I had a bit of fun styling it somewhere in between. Check out the images below, and let me know what you think 🙂

    I think it looks great on you. The colours are just what I like. What is the price? I have a few walking problems so don’t go too often to Queenspark in Midlands Mall.I need to go and peruse other styles as my wardrobe is looking very sad. I am 72 but still love happy fashionable clothes.

      Hi Jean,
      Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Style has no age, so very glad to hear that you love dressing up as much as I do 🙂
      If I recall correctly, the jacket is around R480.
      Hope this helps!

    So what are you going to do with my edges now that you’ve snatched them? huh? Meg?! You have slayed my entire life with this look! This bomber is insane. I have been looking for some cool satin bombers for this look i want to put together and this would be perfect.

    Wierd part is I wouldn’t even think to browse at Queens park coz i see it as more for the working serious woman insead of my silly self. Insane to see theres stuff i could wear there too. Felt the same about donna actually. I really need to stop being intimidated by stored and just walkin in. . . snapbacks and everything.

    You really did that with this look.
