This Swedish Plus Size Brand Will Help You Live Your Best Life
Ellos is bringing #NationalLagomDay to the US and we are here for it!
Finding a signature style can be quite a challenge. If you're like me then your closet is a mix of everything, which doesn’t really help when you're trying to get ready (fast) and out the door every morning. This is why I decided to embrace the Swedish philosophy of ‘Lagom’, which means “just the right amount”, to find the perfect balance in my wardrobe and try to make my life easier by only having core pieces that I know will work for any occasion.
Ellos, a Scandinavian plus-friendly company, embodies the principles of lagom in their designs; balancing flirty feminine pieces with cozy essentials. Their collections have a great combination of styles that help their consumer identify themselves – from timeless classics with a modern twist to edgier looks – as well as adapt to their lifestyle.
The best part? The entire line looks very high-end and it is still very affordable – almost everything on the website is under $150! – so you won’t feel guilty when treating yourself to new clothes.
Check out our favorite Fall pieces from the brand below and celebrate as Ellos brings National Lagom Day to the U.S. (October 3).
