The industry of plus size clothing for women has changed greatly over the years. You are no longer forced to wear unstylish clothing because the trendy clothes of the season are not made for plus size women. Today, plus size women have as much of a variety and choice as the rest of women in the fashion world today. This spring, take a look at your wardrobe and make the decision to spruce it up a bit for the new season. There are many different fashion pieces that you can add to your wardrobe in order to make what used to be a tired closet into a bright and exciting closet.
Because dresses for women this year are by far the most popular fashion trend, we will start our article here. As you probably already know halter dresses and strapless dresses are the timeless classics and today the maxi dress has been added to this list. Although you may be thinking the maxi dress is too slim fitting to be suitable for a plus size woman, you would be wrong. The maxi dress is floor length and can be racer back, halter or regular tank straps. Although the maxi dress is most popular in bright and bold patterns this is not recommended for plus size women.
Bold patterns can only enhance your size, not create the illusion of a smaller body type and this is what strategic fashion planning is all about. By choosing the maxi dress you are creating the illusion of height and there before the illusion of a slimmer you. With a pair of great wedges or heels you can easily pull this look off no matter how tall you are. Maxi dresses look fantastic when they are paired with cropped jackets and sweaters to be worn in the workplace or on those cool spring evenings.
Pants for women this year have been created to be light and airy. With this in mind they are the perfect spring accessory and plus size women can easily take advantage of this trend as well. Linen and gauze pants are incredibly comfortable and because they generally come in neutral colors, they are perfect to create that slimmer appearance we are all searching for. Also, because they are solid in neutral colors you can easily pair these casual wear pants with a bold colored fashion top or even a patterned top for contrast.
You can forget the old rules that plus size women can only look good in black or can not experiment with bold colors and patterns. You can definitely experiment with unique styles as long as you make sure you do not wear too much pattern. Keep a pattern on the top or bottom only, not both. Try to find patterns that have large patterns, the smaller the pattern the less you will be complimenting your body type.
This spring introduces an incredible line of clothing from Elan International and plus size women can enjoy it just as much as any one else.
