My mother was in her 20s in the 70s. Even though she forbid us from going through her photo albums without her permission, I always found a way to check her beautiful pictures. I was quite fascinated by her sunglasses, flared jeans and big afro. This Fall is all about the 70s. I am glad that as plus size women we now get to enjoy trends with everyone else. Remember when plus size retailers were always a year behind on popular trends ?
This faux suede fringe skirt is a recent purchase from Forever 21. To be honest with you the quality is just ok, but you can’t expect better for the price. This is probably one of those pieces you won’t be wearing 2 years from now, but if you are like me and want to try the 70s trend you can certainly get it. I would recommend sizing down because the fabric is stretchy.
For those of you who do not mind thrifting, I would strongly recommend checking your local thrift shop for beautiful suede jackets and skirts. I have added some plus size suede skirts options below.
