I partnered with Kiyonna on this wrap dress review! I feel like I am sharing black dresses on Curls and Contours all. the. time. BUT! This dress is different than my usual black dress. This one has beautiful details and added ruffles to bring a unique twist to a timeless shape.

The Details…

This Kiyonna dress, comes in four different colors(two of which are patterns) and in my experience this means a couple of things. That this is a style that is here to stay with Kiyonna, and that this dress is popular enough that they offer it in a variety of options. Which I really like. To me this means that Kiyonna, has heard from their customers and has done the work to make sure this is a style that is perfect for plus size women.

Barcelona Wrap Dress

The Barcelona Wrap Dress is a polyester/spandex blend, which translates to a weighted, giving fabric with a bit of stretch. The Barcelona wrap is an A-line true wrap dress, which is great for fitting purposes the ruffles along the neckline trail down the front of the garment and wrap under the bust. The dress is fitted with princess seems, and a cold shoulder detail. It falls well below the knee and can be worn with a cami underneath for a modest look.

Size Details

I am wearing my usual size 1, and it is a great fit! I have found that with Kiyonna the dresses run true to size.  Be aware of the ruffles when you are getting dressed, some of them have the tendency to fold under and not show especially around the shoulders.

How to Style 

I chose to style the Barcelona wrap with lace up black sandals, red earrings, and red lips! I love the way these classic colors combine to make a bold statement. Lately I have been in a bold earring mood, and I love the way these red tassle earrings pop. I feel like I am always carrying my leopard clutch, its a great neutral and with the Barcelona wrap it adds some additional texture.

I can see myself wearing this dress to date night, a wedding or even a cocktail party depending on how you style it with accessories!

As I sit here and write this post, there is currently 6 inches of snow on the ground. But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming of spring weather. As we move into warmer climate its time to shed the heavier layers and darker colors for lighter layers and some bright colors!

This spring the colors to wear are Rose Quartz, and SerenityPantone, Curls and Contours

I find the easiest way to mix in color trends is to accessorize with them. I can still use my foundation pieces to create classic looks and add in a twist of trend with some affordable accessories. I am linking some accessories that work with these trendy colors, but look for them when shopping at your regular places. These colors and slight variations of them should be popping everywhere! Dressing for transitional weather can be tough. I find myself walking out the door in a sweater, and by the afternoon I am wishing for a tank top. Every freaking time I do this, I am mad at myself so its my aim this spring to stick to the light layers routine. I plan on mixing in Rose Quartz and Serenity through scarves, and jewelry.
