Allison Teng of Curvy Girl Chic is one of our favorite fashion bloggers. Trendy plus-size retailer Eloquii is one of our favorite online shopping sites. Needless to say we pretty much freaked out when we found out the two were collaborating to showcase the brand's summer collection.
Eloquii shared some behind-the-scenes photos and quotes from Teng's day as a stylist -- where she dished out some of her best style tips and tricks (all while rocking some seriously cute clothes.) Perhaps our favorite thing about the collab, however, is the real factor. Teng stays true to her advice and actually implements them into her everyday style (just check her outfit posts on Instagram.) She is not afraid to take risks, and at the same time knows exactly how to execute certain trends to make them work for her body.
Check out some of the behind the scenes photos and tips below, and to shop Allison's favorite picks from the collection, head over to Eloquii.com.
"Don't be afraid to venture out of your comfort zone -- try different shapes and silhouettes, and go for bright colors and prints! I'm all about embracing trends like crop tops and cutouts. Fashion-forward clothing is for everyone, regardless of size!"
"You can ease into wearing bold prints by anchoring them with a solid color to keep your look from being super busy!"
"I'm all about crop tops and mixing prints this season! If you're on the fence about trying these trends, opt for pairing crop tops with high-waisted skirts to ease into the trend.
"You can't go wrong with classic black and white! I love keeping it simple with menswear-inspired pieces like this vest, but glamming up a look with a big statement necklace."
