I’m always so excited to try out a new plus label, especially one with a great price point. A younger sister to longtime plus brand Avenue, Loralette is all about fun, on-trend options.
I anticipated junior plus sizing, but for the most part was pleasantly surprised to find Loralette’s sizes to run true to my typical range. I always go one size up for a relaxed fit in boyfriend jeans, and my usual size 18 fit just right in this rose gold sequined pair. These have enough stretch for comfort without losing their shape completely, but they do grow a bit looser throughout the day.
For me, the obvious choice for these distressed, sequin-patched boyfriend jeans was a dressed-down twist on a party look. The velvet cami is such a throwback to the early-Aughts era of the going out top, which is having a moment again. To keep it modern, I paired it with the shoe of the moment (pointy white sock boots) and layered on an over the top copper leather coat, making this combo perfect for drinking and dancing on the Lower East Side on a cold night.
I sized up to a 2x in the cami because I didn’t want it to be too tight, but I probably could have stuck with my usual 1x. The fact that I don’t have to size up like I so often do in trendier junior plus brands is also great because that means Loralette is more accurately serving their full size range.
Night to Day
For a daytime look with these jeans, I went with a monochrome color palette. The black and white striped cuffs and the lace body elevate this sweatshirt to something special. I sized up to a 2x in this and the fit is perfect, so this is the one piece that I did not find to run true to size.
Worn over a bralette and paired with suede boots, it was perfectly comfy for a casual Sunday of brunch and blogging with my husband.
To keep it cozy enough for these newly wintry temps, I wore it with my go-to All67 leather moto by Jeff Cafone. All together, the look was casual while still feeling considered. Now that I’ve tried Loralette and know how their clothes fit and wear, I will definitely be going back for more. Their denim is particularly fun, with lots of unique details I’m not seeing elsewhere, like these pearl-patched babies:
