Ruby Linker is a new line of limited edition wearable art products based out of California and today, I am taking on the Ruby Linker Style Challenge to show you how I style one of their plus size tops. 

All tops are available in sizes S-3X. The cut of the tops are flowy so they could likely fit beyond a 3X as well. The brand also makes really cute patterned leggings. Hopefully those will become available in plus sizes soon!

The challenge itself was simple: take a Ruby Linker top and create a look that aligns with your personal style. I am really a person who believes I can wear and style anything in a way that I like. I looked through all of the tops and expected myself to gravitate towards something super colorful but instead, I kept coming back to a black and white top named Power

I love that the top mixes different weight stripes and patterns with wavy lines and sharp edges at the same time. There's a lot going on in this top and that's exactly the way I want someone to feel when they look at my outfits. It felt like a fit. 

When I picked out the top, my original plan was to style sans pants. It's expected from me but that's not a bad thing. When I tried on the top, I realized that this was really a top and even on my short frame, this wasn't going to be wearable as a dress. 

Enter my new favorite pair of cuffed jean shorts and I achieved a pretty similar aesthetic as I had planned. I love to balance wearing something long sleeved in the summer by showing a whole lot of leg. And also, wearing shorts as a plus size woman is still something that makes me feel powerful. 

To finish the look, I added a Ready to Stare necklace and sunglasses. And of course, you know I had to add a little pop of color with the shoes. These are color-blocked purple Steve Madden wedges. 

I am wearing a 3XL in the top for a more oversized look and could've probably sized down to a 2XL for a tight fit. 

So grab a top from Ruby Linker and take the challenge for yourself! Make sure you tag @Ruby-Linker, and use #RubyLinker when you do!
