Astra Signature Style: Harley Sweater
When your bestie creates her own fashion label with styles you would expect to see step straight off the runway you know dreams do come true. ASTRA, Latin for “to the stars”, is a plus size fashion collection created by my friend and social influencer Crystal Coons, AKA Sometimes Glam.
From line drawings to concepts, I have seen the evolution of this amazing brand over the past few years and I couldn't be prouder of Crystal and all the magic she has made. Her heart and soul has gone into each garment which is created in sizes 12-26 for every woman who believes they are more. The women who get up in the morning and have the courage to pursue their dreams and face their fears head-on. The women who reach for the stars.
During her recent trip to Australia, Crystal spoilt me with some pieces from the new ASTRA collection including this gorgeous Harley Sweater. While I will be wearing a lot more ASTRA styles this Autumn/Winter but this versatile piece was one that I could instantly incorporate into my Spring/Summer wardrobe and layer on those cool Summer nights.
The Harley Sweater is a black and white striped cropped jumper which sits perfectly at my waist. It is a super cosy knit which features a rose gold zipper at the neckline which can be worn done up or unzipped to expose a little skin and streamline your profile.
I am wearing the Harley Sweater in size 2XL which fits me comfortably through the arms, back and chest. It does have some stretch to it which I like in a jumper, especially as a layering piece which is generally worn over another garment.
