Now back to what is really important… the clothes! I know… there is a lot of black. But what I can I say, I love black! It’s so flattering, timeless and versatile. I tried to add a lot of metallic notes to lift the outfits. From the metallic dress, to rhinestones, sequin and jewelry, it all adds to the sparkle and glam that is Holiday dressing. As you can see, I also love layering with a cardigan or jacket. It adds a layer of warmth and helps to hide the problem areas, like your arms or your backside. If dresses aren’t your thing, you can opt to wear long and loose trouser. The flowy material gives off the illusion of a long dress and lifts the entire look.
I can’t believe it’s all over. Weeks, days and hours of prepping and pulling clothes, all for my 4 minutes of fame. And I loved every second of it! I had the opportunity to style for a CTV Morning Live segment on Fall Fashion trends with Addition Elle. You can watch it here.
My overall approach with styling for this fall is to choose clothing items that are versatile, warm and comfortable. Everything in your wardrobe should be appropriate for work or play. And when you’re shopping, make sure you chose lots of great pieces that you can mix and match.

Addition Elle really made my job easy. They have such an impressive selection of clothes that comes in size 12 to 24. Their looks are on trend, affordable and all of the pieces go really well together. I didn’t realize that Addition Elle also carries a ton of accessories and shoes (Bonus!!)! Everything is well thought out and designed for larger women. Shoes have more room, bracelets are larger… it’s the little things that make a huge difference.
Here are my five looks:
A big shout out to the girls at Addition Elle from the Train Yards location. They were super organized and got me set up for all of this. Thanks ladies!
