Plus size fashions are a force to be reckoned with in modern society. Models are now being selected with plus size proportions and are in great demand. Runways, once the haven of the pencil thin waifs are now making way for the mature, stylish plus size women.
Here are some up-to-date fashion styles which are on the menu this year for plus size fashions:
1. Wide Leg Pants
Wide-legged trousers are the next best thing to harem styles we have been seeing on the runway. Try a pair with a looser fit that flares out from the hips, and then pair them with sumptuous footwear. Aim for wider trousers in a substantial fabric that hides lumps and bumps, from dark denim to heavy wool weights.
Heavy heels are the best way to start adding trendy height. Choose the correct width to your shoes and your feet will more comfortably adjust to a higher heel. Most stable are knee-high boots in a thick, solid leather, which support the ankle best, and least supportive are wedges and stilettos. Try a peep-toe pump with a stacked heel for comfort. They can also help to balance out thicker ankles and calves.
3. Nude Colors
Nude is a great choice, and a friendly one when you choose to wear it underneath a couple of other layers. Push the envelope and try it with a lovely lace bustier in cream or white under a sweet cami.
By choosing a color instead of a silhouette, you give yourself a lot of leeway to find something that fits. While many of us who are of larger proportions might not choose a solid beige-colored dress, we might like a cami or a lace-trimmed tank. A touch of on-trend color goes a long way.
4. Be Creative
Dashikis, block prints, and colorful tribal prints are something we can easily mix into our wardrobes. Try a tunic top to pair with jeans, a fun skirt and heels, or a cute tote bag as an early nod to fall and winter trends. Wild prints might be intimidating, but they can really work if you simply select the right proportion. Try a sequined shrug, for example, or a waist-tie African-inspired tunic. Geometrics and graphic prints are welcome additions to our wardrobes, and easily worn as a decorative top.
