Plus Size Fall Basics From SKIMS: A Review


While people might have their qualms about Kim Kardashian, she certainly knew what she was doing when she launched SKIMS a few years ago. The brand makes amazing quality shapewear, loungewear, robes, and athleisure-style clothing. It’s one of few brands that launched with inclusive sizing ranging from XS to 4X.

I have been an avid fan of SKIMS since it initially launched in 2019 and have especially loved its expansion into everyday basics and loungewear. 

SKIMS Long-Sleeve Tops: Super-Soft Base Layers

In my latest YouTube video, I try on several different long-sleeve pieces to add to my fall and winter wardrobe. These long sleeves are great for layering and could even suffice as base layers for wintery hot girl walks and a little aprés ski moment. Of the three options that I featured, my favorite for everyday wear is the Vintage Scoop Long Sleeve made out of 92% cotton and has that perfect lived-in feel. And if you are looking for the long sleeve that will keep you the warmest, then you need to give the Soft Smoothing Turtleneck a try. It’s ultra-lightweight, yet insulated at the same time.

If you are looking for a long sleeve that will keep you warm on a chilly hike, then this turtleneck is for you! The material feels similar to the performance line from Nike, and it also makes you look and feel snatched!

SKIMS New Vintage Scoop Long Sleeve T-Shirt

This long sleeve was my personal favorite of all the different tops I tried from SKIMS. It has that perfect lived-in feel, and the deep scoop neckline is subtly sexy.

SKIMS Fits Everybody Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

The Fits Everybody collection is perfect for those of you who may fluctuate in size and is designed to fit you comfortably across a wide range of sizes.

Stay warm y’all!
