Yona New York

In case you haven’t noticed, plus size fashion is taking a huge leap forward. It may still be a grossly underserved market compared to “regular” sizes, but designers are taking the plunge and having fun with it.

Meet Yona New York.

Yona Love believes that beauty is not about size, but about style and confidence.

She has created a line of plus size fashion for the full figured woman who wants color, pattern, style and sophistication. Who wants to be able to express who she is through her clothing. Maybe for the very first time. Sophisticated styling based on the latest trends, structured to fit a fuller figured woman, cuts that drape, fabrics that give and designs that cover but don’t hug the body are all part of Yona’s signature style.

This is the Kimono Dress in Floral. A unique criss-cross bosom that drapes into the skirt provides the perfect shaped silhouette without being clingy. And this is a staple in Yona’s designs – that they are office appropriate but still feminine.

It was a little loose (I am wearing the 1X, which I normally wear) so it is refreshing that their sizing isn’t on the small side like with so many plus size brands. I had to cinch the back so this is why it appears to be sweeping upward on the sides. The normal fit, as shown on the model below, won’t have this effect.

I liked the loose kimono sleeves and the romantic floral pattern. I am wearing my shapewear because I am more comfortable feeling supported but this is definitely a style that wouldn’t require it.

In keeping with my girly styling tendencies, I went with a laser cut wedge, coral earrings and an orange floral hair clip. To turn this into a smart work look, I would wear black heels and perhaps a black cardi or jacket, with simple gold earrings.
