Lolly from City Chic is an important member of the Noarlunga community. She feels strongly about providing support for our ageing and trans community and enjoys utilising her passion for inclusivity at City Chic, Australia’s leading destination of trendy plus-size clothing.
We spoke to Lolly to learn some of her helpful, realistic fashion tips and to find out more about her.
First, we had to get Lolly’s thoughts on key fashion pieces she loves for the upcoming seasons. “In summer, I love a dramatic, flowing maxi dress for a cool, effortless chicness. In Autumn, a leather jacket is amazing for keeping my dresses trans-seasonal.” We especially love that last point!
As a stylist, Lolly’s favourite fashion tip is all about trying whatever you want. “Try it for fun! What’s the worst that can happen?” Her favourite accessory to bring an outfit to life is something that might surprise you! “I always say the perfect foundation will make every outfit amazing. The right bra or lingerie will make or break your look,” she said.
City Chic has an amazing range of clothing, in an array of styles and colours. So, what would Lolly choose if she could only wear one outfit from the store for the rest of her life? “A dress! Our Forbidden Love Maxi Dress, a black off shoulder gown. With the right foundation, it’s my favourite dress.”
Trends come and go, but Lolly is certain on what she does and doesn’t like in fashion.
“My least favourite trend is non-inclusive fashion brands. Let’s celebrate diversity. My favourite – I love the dark and dramatic in fashion and daring designers like McQueen.”
In case anyone is needing some inspiration, we asked Lolly to share what her ideal date night would like at the Centre, and what outfit she would rock. “I’d be rocking my cute pin-up look. We do one every spring, and it’s fun and flirty for a date at Adisi… let’s do a cute morning date!” Sounds good to us!
When it comes to her favourite occasion to get dressed up for, Lolly loves the Christmas and new year party season. “I love to wear fun, cocktail dresses, I just love getting dressed-up! Any excuse to dress-up, I’m there. I’m over-dressed for life!”
Lolly is a fun, colourful member of our Centre community and an ally to those who might find themselves placed on the outside by society. So, the next time you’re in need of a stunning outfit for a special occasion, or just want to level-up your everyday style, make sure you visit Lolly and the team at City Chic. You’ll be supporting a space that stands for inclusivity.
