One thing about being an island girl is that you become a sucker for tropical leaves and floral print on clothing. With the perfect pattern, you’ll definitely ace that balance between island street casual, even edgy or dark.
This What Goes Around dress in black and green from the Fashion Nova plus collection does it for me! (If you’re a 2X or 3X, you’re in luck!) Although just a tad bit short, I was pleasantly surprised that I could fit it. It has good coverage options for the chest area, but it definitely allows you to show a lot of leg. It also has a beautiful wrap detail that makes it look ultra feminine. (If you’re into maxi or off-shoulder dresses, then here’s another option from Fashion Nova!)
A perfect coverup would be a tan/brown/black open-front suede jacket. For footwear, tan/brown/black strappy sandals or heels would do the job – and more! And personal would go for gold-toned accessories. And for face, I would opt for something more natural; not too dark. Bronzes, gold, peach and mauve would accent these tropical colors and patterns perfectly.
Sizing and fit
For sizing reference, I’m 5’9” and wearing size 3X, which feels a tad bit tight and short if you’re a 22/24. Size 3X would also be a good fit for those wearing size 18/20 if you prefer your clothes to not hug your body too tight.
