This Spring, you will love, love love the array of colors! We are looking at bright colors that pop!  This Spring is the perfect time to incorporate color into your wardrobe!

Royal blue, Violet, Yellow, Green and Coral are the go-to colors this season.

Take a look at this Crossroads Blazer in  Turquoise and Coral from Neon Buddha. With the wonderful color and jeweled buttons, this is the perfect blazer to take you from daytime to after-hour festivities.  A great example of the colorful brights we are seeing this season!

So, don’t be self-conscious to wear color! For the next few seasons, colorful separates and dresses are all you will see!  I compare wearing colorful clothing to getting used to wearing a RED lipstick shade. Most of us who wear make up, started off by wearing more subtle lipstick shades and as we got used to having some color on our lips we were able to deepen the color and perhaps back off the intensity of color on our eyes and cheeks so that we can play up one feature!

The same principle applies to your wardrobe! Start off with perhaps with an accessory or two and move to a colorful tunic and then, perhaps bottoms, like the ever popular colored denim we are seeing out now.

Remember, plus size women do not have to be banished to wearing dark colors anymore. It is a myth and it is outdated thinking and we need to stop it. If you have worn basic, neutral colors start with my suggestion to focus on accessories and then move to clothing pieces.

Spring is the perfect time to start!

Happy Shopping!

The New Black: Shades of Gray
icon1 BlackCatPlus | icon2 BlackCatPlus News | icon4 November 26, 2011| icon32 Comments »

This season, for a change from basic black, add a little bit of pizazz to your look by combining black and brown or try shades of gray.

A universally flattering color, these shades are versatile and can stand alone or can easily be paired with basic black for a rich look.  I just love the new shades of gray this season such as this Art of Cloth Anya Vest in Gravel which also combines a hint of texture as well.

As a topper, pair your jacket such as this Neon Buddha Mya Jacket with a basic black pair of dress pants or a similar shade pant which will lengthen and slim your torso.

Festive, fun and flattering shades of gray can be a perfect addition to your wardrobe this holiday season.

We’ve got you covered! Take advantage of the season’s best in tights and leggings.  Some things to keep in mind when selecting the right pair of tights:

1. Make sure they are not too tight (no pun intended).  Go up a size if you need to.

2. Make sure also, that the tights are flattering to your legs.  Use a solid color to balance.

3. Extra long length tunics can be great if you want to wear wild patterns and colors.

Be sure to check out the tights selection at We Love Colors! We thank our friends at We Love Colors for supplying us with the tights for use in our video. Check out their March We Love Colors Music Contest!

We have had a few inquiries about the trend of printed leggings and how they translate to plus size.  With help from our friends at we have a few great suggestions on how to wear plus size printed leggings.

Actually, graphic eye-catching printed tights can hide problem areas.  Think of the concept of to “distract” rather than to “attract” which is what printed leggings can do when paired with the right ensemble.  Make sure you wear your printed leggings with oversized t-shirts, long belted shirts, or plain-colored simple tunic-style tops such as our Comfy USA Black Tunic.  Choose high heeled shoes to make your legs look  slender or wear leggings with simple flats and take note: this is not the time to wear your statement shoes, let your tights do the talkin’.

Leggings will be everywhere this Fall and why not take a chance with this exciting fashion statement?  You can order your tights online at or by phone at 1-800-770-3177 and soon from Black Cat Plus!
