Every now and then, there is a moment when great fashion and storytelling meet to form a perfect colab. We’ve seen it in Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, Girlfriends, heck even 101 Dalmatians. Cruella anyone? So when I saw the trailer for Oceans 8, namely the style of Debbie Ocean, I knew that not only would this be a kick ass girl-power movie, but the fashion would be fierce!
I was inspired and I wasn’t going to sit this one out; nope. Cue “I’m Coming Out”! Check out my plus size remix of Sandra Bullock’s character Debbie Ocean, courtesy of Astra Signature, Torrid and Roaman’s.
Let’s break down Debbie Oceans timeless boss babe style.
Whips our Bad Bitch Handbook
Lets see: Leather pants. Check.
Black body suit. Check
Fur coat. Check.
Fabulous heels to stomp the
First the leather. Nothing makes me feel more empowered than leather and these Paperbag leather pants from Astra Signature are the bomb. I admit I was worried about wearing them because I’m short and well, round, but I decided to take the risk and go for it. Turns out they were perfect and so comfortable, without being hot like some leather pieces can be. (Style note: thes pants run a little big, so be sure to size down). they have a highwaist rise and comes with it’s own belt, and ends right at the ankle with string details on each cuff. I paired it with the Essential Bodysuit also courtesy of Astra Signature. The fitted bodysuit was the perfect complement to the slacked leather pants, creating a great silhouette.
Next, every boss needs a fur and even better, a blush pink fur coat! On a breezy 65 degree NYC day this Faux Fur Jacket from Roaman’s is a real show stopper (the pink sold out, but black is still available). Aside from being, well beautiful, it’s super warm without being overly hot. It has a hook-n-eye closure and look great open or closed. Note, people with stare so be sure to strike a pose.
Finally, no outfit is complete without a great pair of shoes and these Black Caged Heeled Sandals from Torrid were made for walking. Because of their 3.5 stacked heel, it was very easy to run up and down NYC with crying in pain. These shoes are true Wide Width, so the level of comfort is amazing. They zip in the back, but you can undo the laces for an even more comfortable fit.
All in all the perfect outfit for planning heist or just a night out with the girls, your call.
