Jen Lancaster is witty and relatable. The moments she shares with us in Pretty in Plaid are almost pulled from our own memory bank. She begins by delving into her days in the girl scouts, depicting her badges as a disappointment rather than an achievement, that so many of us feel after completing mediocre work on college papers, etc. She then shows us her dancing in France, with her high school friends, learning that some boys don’t always find you attractive, but with friends by your side, and a glass of wine in hand, nothing can do you wrong! Eventually Jen makes it to college and after opening a credit card just to buy a gucci bag, then living in debt, she becomes a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority and their very own Recruitment Chair!
Since a lot of girls that read these blogs are in sororities and have had experiences with groups of girls (like the girl scouts) or have worried about what to wear to their terrible jobs in the (pits of Chicago) Jen is the perfect author to suit our readers needs! Her style and effortless wit will amuse any college girl.
After Jen graduates from college, she is forced to join the work force. Finding outfits to fit her unique body type, while staying fashionably relevant creates a great challenge for her. Here are some tips on what to wear to the office for every body type!
This dress is great for curvy body types! With an accented waist (the blue POPS!) it will give whomever is wearing it a smaller looking figure. Perfect for girls with curves on the top, bottom, or both because the middle goes in, distracting from the top and bottom, making the center of the figure where the eye catches.
This dress is perfect for those who carry their weight on top! The higher neck line detracts from heaviness and the ruching toward the hip draws attention to a thinner part of the body.
This dress is perfect for girls who carry their weight on the bottom half of their body, or are “pear” shaped. Because of the bold pattern that covers the entire body, not as much attention is drawn to the bottom half. The v-neck makes the viewers eyes go to the top half of the body, instead of the bottom. The pleating going on in the skirt also slims the figure and distracts from extra weight!
All of these dresses can be found on the Rent the Runway website, and are searchable by body type!
