2 Ways to Rock the Kiyonna Riley Ruched Skirt

I LOVE Kiyonna and what it does for fabulous plussize, curvy women. Their clothes are almost magical--when you put on one of their dresses, you somehow transform into a curvy bombshell. The Riley Ruched skirt is no exception to this rule...and as a bonus...it works perfectly dressed up or down. Go classy or casual with this skirt, and you'll never run out of places to wear it!

This skirt is made out of the softest t-shirt-like material, and it is so comfortable, you might forget how good you look until you catch a glimpse of yourself in a passing window. Then, your mind will go blank and you'll think..."Well hello gorgeous!"

The ruching on the side definitely adds a bit of glamour to the skirt--hugging the hips while the draping adds an extra texture and dimension to your look and lays perfectly over your belly. I'm not even wearing support wear to smooth out the lines...this is all natural, baby!

For this first look, I paired the skirt with a neutral tank top and a bright orange/red airy cowl-neck  top with an elasticized waist from Forever 21. I added a braided gold belt, gold accessories, and snakeskin pumps to tie the whole look together. The bold colorful top really pops against the neutral tones! When choosing the right top to pair with your Riley Ruched skirt, peplum shapes work well and anything that will lay flat over or under the skirt. And don't be scared to pull the skirt up or down over your midsection to make sure the length and the drape hit exactly where you want it to!



Next, I dressed it down, choosing a simple white tank, a jean jacket and (gasp!) flats to create a cute casual look that's perfect for your Saturday afternoon errands.
