10 Perfect 10s (When You Ain’t No Size 2)

In honor of Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW), and for the inaugural Well Rounded Wednesday on the Zappos Blog, I hereby publicly admit that I have a massive girl crush on Meghan Trainor.

Only 20 years old at the time of this writing, Ms. Trainor has been writing songs since she was 11, produced her first tracks at 13, at 18 was signed a songwriting deal, writing for Rascall Flats and an assortment of Disney stars.  By now, most of us have heard her amazing body-love anthem “All About That Bass”- and celebrated that amazing line “Cause every inch of you is perfect, from the bottom to the top.” Body acceptance and love are amazing things that we all struggle with some days- especially when we face the dreaded dressing room mirror.  Trainor says, "I wrote this song because I myself struggle with this concept of self-acceptance. It was written from a real place so I’m glad that other people can relate to it.”

Some days it can be a challenge to find clothing that compliments your body while being on-trend and in-style when you have hips, curves- and maybe a few extra inches from your bottom to your top.  So, for the inaugural Well Rounded Wednesday, I bring you 10 items that are Perfect 10’s when it comes to being on-trend and in style this season- even when you’re not a size 2.  

I hope you love these as much as I do, and they help you show on the outside how fabulous you feel-and are on the inside!

Inspired By: Pastel Shell

When we think of fall transition, we typically shift to richer, deeper colors. While that’s true, we can’t help but be gravitated towards the refreshing trend of fall outerwear done in soft, dusty pastel hues. It just lightens up our standard fall palette so nicely and with minimal effort.

There’s just something a bit unexpected yet approachable about throwing on a pale coat over your fall outfits. Today’s street style inspiration does just that with a subdued blush-colored trench over her dark outfit.

Check out our version of this fresh take on early fall outerwear:

Inspired By: The New Hippie

Few eras in history have had the kind of enduring influence on fashion like the groovy ‘60s. One look around any music festival and it’s clear to see that the “flower power” vibes are alive and well.

Today’s iterations of the hippie lovechild look are definitely less about walking barefoot through fields of flowers and more about taking that carefree spirit and translating it in today’s diverse fashion landscape.

Check out our take on the ever-popular bohemian look below:

Fresh Picks: Sheer Thing

More often than not, we find the sexiest pieces in our wardrobes are those that leave a little something to the imagination. Take sheer panels for instance. Strategically placed sheer peekaboo panels or all-out sheer fabrication with a subtle baselayer worn underneath just makes for a more dynamic outfit choice.

Check out a few of our sheer favorites below:

If you didn’t quite make it to Indio these past couple of weekends, no worries, festival season is still in full effect. Not only is the season of music fests heating up, so is the weather! That’s right, time to put those cutoff shorts on heavy rotation!

Today’s street style inspiration is a lovely example of how to infuse some girly style while still looking (and staying) effortlessly cool well into the heat of summer.
