Has summer hit your part of the world yet? The shops and online stores are already stocking their plus size trendy fashions, so let’s take a look at the plus size trendy fashions for this year’s warm season.
Colours: Bright is in. Plain or striped orange, yellow, peach, lilac and cerise are bringing on the summery feel but don’t go crazy; an all yellow outfit may make you look like an oversize canary. A bright top with white or denim trousers or skirt gives just the right touch of cheerfulness to an outfit.
Prints: Both floral and animal prints are in vogue this summer as well as geometric designs. Floral prints come in all different colours and interestingly, so do the animal prints. Leopard prints are generally in shades of brown but zebra can be black and blue as well as black and white and snakeskin prints can come in purple. Beware though; all over prints can accentuate your size so choose separates, a plain top or bottom or a wide belt to break up the pattern.
If you don’t like animal print clothing or you think floral prints are a bit passé then jazz up a plain outfit with a colourful printed bag or scarf.
Tops: Wide stripes are back but use with care or they can make you look wider. Lace detail around necklines and along sleeves also features in this year’s plus size trendy fashions as well as the aforementioned prints.
Dresses and Skirts: Plus size trendy fashions can be straight or floaty. Straight dresses and skirts are usually in plain dark colours whereas the floaty ones are floral patterned in more pastel shades. Elasticated waist bands make for comfortable wearing.
Trousers: Wide trousers are still fashionable and are great for disguising bulgy hips. They also look great as evening wear with a lacy top.
Cardigans and sweaters: Open front draped cardigans and vests are great at disguising the fuller figure and look really elegant. Go for longline sweaters rather than anything that ends at the waist; these are still the height of fashion, so don’t be afraid to go for them.
Shoes: Flat shoes are still in vogue; gladiator sandals, Birkenstocks and their lookalikes and ballet pumps in all colours, with or without decorative detail.
Bags: A large bag makes you look slimmer and there are plenty to choose from in floral print drawstrings as well as more traditional shapes and colours.
If you’re looking for plus size trendy fashions there are plenty out there to choose from both in the malls and on the internet.
