It is natural to feel resentful of fashionable clothes that are only meant for Size 2 teenagers. But thankfully, designers have now come to understand the plight of plus size women and have come up with many fashionable options for the plus size silhouette.
Stores, such as Black Cat Plus, have devoted their entire existence and primarily caters to plus size figures and their fashion demands. So, don’t settle for anything less than the best because there are many fashion tricks you can use when you shop for your shapely plus size silhouette –
1. Prints – Prints help in camouflaging your figure flaws by drawing the eye away from them. Although animal prints, such as this Animals in Color Beaded Tunic by Sienna Rose, seem to be making a comeback, you need not restrict yourself to animal prints only.
You can try many bold prints such as this plus size Sienna Rose Flying Rose Ruffled Tunic, that makes a statement. The golden rule is to have the size of the print in equal proportion to your body.
2. Colors – Darker colors are oxygen to plus size figures. This doesn’t mean that you will have to lead a black and white life. Know where your figure flaws lie and focus on them. If you are bottom heavy, combine a fun colored top with straight black denims.
3. Stripes – Vertical stripes, such as this Diamond Side Tunic from Comfy USA make one look slimmer and taller while horizontal stripes can have the opposite effect if the stripes are not in proportion. Play on the mystic quality of the vertical stripes and contrast the color to create a winning combination. Wear pants or a skirt that has horizontal stripes and combine them with a solid color shirt and jacket, and you will turn many heads.
4. Skinny Jeans – Although boot cuts still remain a classic, Cigarette Denims and straight cuts are a plus size figure’s paradise. Slim fits and leggings like our Comfy USA plus size Zipper leggings, when combined with a longer top can do an excellent job in making you look slimmer. But the wash should be dark. If you are okay with your lower body, you can even combine it with a shirt; but a longer shirt would be preferred if you don’t want to draw attention to your lower torso.
With plenty of options to choose from, you will be right in style as Winter fades into the Sunset and we Spring into Action, this season!
