Who: Alissa W. of Stylish Curves
What: Vintage green and white polka dot jacket
Where: Plus-size resale boutique ReDress in New York City
How Much: $25
When I Use It: “Whenever I have a daytime event and I want something that makes me stand out, I reach for this jacket. I also wear it as a top by throwing a camisole under it. It’s such a versatile piece that I hardly have to do much styling to it.”
Shopping Tips: “I think it’s better to shop when stores first open. This way you have the pick of the litter before the afternoon rushes come in. I also believe that sometimes you have to ignore the size on the tag and focus on the cut of the clothes. You can be a size 14, but, that size 8 shirt may be cut really loose and may fit your body perfectly.”
