Hey Curvy Chicks!
I never ever thought I would say this but I have been absolutely obsessed lately with none other than ex-Disney royalty Miley Cyrus. Ever since she chopped off her locks a few months back and worked the hell out of her blonde undercut play on a pixie I have had my eye on her and seem to have an extreme new found appreciation for everything Miley. Not only has her hair pulled on the strings of my fierce and edgy heart but also her street style has really been speaking to my rock n roll soul! Call it a crush if you will both in style and overall awesome.
I decided to compile some of my favorite easy going street style looks Miley has been working recently and have decided to break down what exactly it is that I am loving and finding some similar items in plus sizes made for your curvy curves! While translating straight sized celeb style to plus has been presented as a tricky thing (primarily by designers making excuses), in the grander scheme of fashion it is as simple as taking a note from the celeb style you love and putting a spin on it that not only recreates the look you’re after but also flatters while still representing your personal style.
Miley has become a bit of grunge girl lately but has done it in a way that not only appears to bring comfort and an edgy “I just rolled out of bed and look this fabulous” quality but also some serious style points for her use of prints and pieces with that extra little something that takes the look up a notch. Lets take a look!
So this first look is super casual, but also pretty damn cute in my opinion. Everything from the fantastic fit of this grey t-shirt (it has a lovely slit in the back that makes it extra special), to the great dark wash skinnies screams casual and a look anyone could recreate, but the way it has been accessorized is really what makes the look noteworthy. The loose laced and untied combat boots wrap around the skinnies make her legs look even tinier then they already are and shows that this bitch means business. Her use of gold dainty accessories also plays off the causal and a bit grungy look showcasing that there is still some femininity to her style.
This look has gotten some flack from the fashion community for its “Beetlejuice” nature but I absolutely love it. Miley has been all about the printed pants lately especially those with a high waist. This look is so 90′s for me which absolutely makes me giddy, and i love the balance of the extreme print in the pants with the cropped black top that shows a little femininity in the cut. The sleeve length and the low cut square neckline enhances the girls and also accentuates her waist. The length on the pants is also fabulous especially a paired with the oxford style shoes. Accessories complete this look with a great knit cap (the quick and easy ponytail solution of short hair), once again the layering of dainty necklaces, and the chunky earrings that give the look a little funk.
A lot of Miley’s looks have similar elements but done in different ways that keep her fresh and relevant. I absolutely love these cobalt skinnies which any woman can easily pull off for a pop of color to an everyday look. I love that she tucked them into her combat boots making both the skinnies and the boots big focal points in the outfit. Miley seems to love a comfy knit sweaters right now especially if it is a crop top, which I think any curvy girl could also rock if she chooses. However this look would also work with a longer length sweater if it is loose fitting and slouchy. Once again Miley is rocking the knit cap and these great circular sunnies.
This last look is my absolutely favorite! I have been drooling over floral printed pants lately especially when paired with dark pieces like Miley has done in this look. I love the way shes is playing off the femininity of the floral print with the platforms but is reminding us that she is one tough cookie with that fabulous leather jacket. Every girl deserves to have a leather, or faux leather jacket in her wardrobe for bringing out her badass but it is even better when that jacket has some special detail that makes it unique. I love the quilted affect in Miley’s jacket which seems so appropriate with this look. PERFECTION!
Okay, so now that we have broken down why I am loving Miley’s Grungy Street Style here are some plus size options for exploring similar looks. Remember its all about combining casual items with something special, going edgy and then adding a touch of feminine, and owning your look like the badass you are! Also as I always say throwing in some skulls, crosses, and animal prints never hurt.
