Great Things Worth Knowing About Plus Size Styling

Buying the right clothes for your curvy figure can be tricky. After all, most of the regular brands don’t have enough sizes and there are very few that specialize in plus size clothing. In this post, we will talk about styling and fashion with regards to plus sizes. These are the things you need to know, regardless of the size you wear!

The Basics:

1. First things first, don’t wear black because it makes you look thinner. While the concept itself isn’t bad, it’s passé and doesn’t make much sense anymore. Instead, look for colors that really flatter you and are trending everywhere, including pastels, pinks and even stripes.

2. Don’t wear loose or ill-fitting undergarments. Look for a size that fits you, and if required, go to a good store and ask their sales staff to help you. There are so many different kinds of bras and panties that are meant for plus size women.

Fashion Tips & Ideas On How To Get The Right Outfit To Suit You With Unique Fashionable Accessories

Is false fashion for you? What you have to bear in mind when keeping up with all the newest trends is, that never once were you in the designer’s thoughts when putting his or her creations together.

How many times have you cringed at styles of dresses, trousers, blouses or whatever knowing at the back of your mind how hideous you would look dressed in what was designed for the catwalk and yet you feel the need to have them because it’s in fashion.

Top designer labels do not come cheap and can be quite expensive leaving you broke when you could have bought a garment for half the price and still look just as stunning. Keeping up with fashion is all well and good but if you look stupid wearing something that wasn’t specifically designed for you don’t wear it. There is nothing worse than walking into a room thinking you are god’s gift because you paid a fortune for what you are wearing, only to be made a mockery of.

When out shopping next; find a shop selling quality gear for half the price of what it would cost to dress in designer gear. You will find similar or duplicated designs to the latest craze in most stores and even in second-hand or charity shops. This is your best option for picking up a bargain if you don’t have a lot of money. The good thing with charity shops their proceeds go to good causes, so as well as looking a million dollars in an outfit bought from such a shop you help the starving people of the world.

Fashion Tips:

Boob Tube: Not comfortable with the new boob tube you bought because your bare fleshed stomach is in full view but they are in fashion and you want one. This is easily sorted just narrow the gap down. Under, the breast where the hem of the garment is, stitch or glue tassels, beads or pearls. This makes a great cover up and also adds your own uniqueness to it. Another thing with this idea is you get to choose the colour of accessories you want to decorate the boob tube with –not having to make do with what the designer who has never met or seen you thinks is best for you.

Belts do not go down well with pleasantly plump girls. Well, they do but the big girl should exclude belts from her wardrobe as they are not complimentary for the woman with the big waistline. If belts are a must then let us find an alternative idea. Make your own belly piece. Get leather strips (off cuts) these can be any colour or assorted shades, braid/plait them together then hang the twisted menagerie loosely (not tight) around the middle securing it so it doesn’t slip down to the ankles. (You could also make a leather braided ankle strap to match) Add glitter or glue sequins to the strips to spice the belt up. This will not only look effective but complement your size. Off-cuts are cheap and you could if wanting to hang beads coins or whatever from the belt you made, this will let everyone know you are in the room or get you noticed on the dance floor because of the jingle and jangle.

Boots are in fashion but you cannot afford to buy them. Let’s be sneaky and clever to get you the nearest thing to boots. Buy closed in shoes then get a matching pair of the same colour as the shoe knee or ankle length socks and hey presto from a distance a pair of boots, how good is that?

Above are two ideas of what you can do if you put your mind to it, rather than end up in debt due to buying designer gear that no one gets to see because you emptied the bank account, and now can’t afford to go out and show your new outfit off.

In the fashion industry style and design changes every day, so you could be left with a very expensive dress left hanging in the wardrobe because it’s gone out of fashion

Forget about buying fashionable designer gear in the shops as those styles and design were not created for you personally. This is disastrous for some girls wanting to wear clothes trending at the time. If you can get away with wearing the latest trends then you are one of the lucky ones, sadly not all girls are that fortunate.

False fashion is what it is. Your height, weight, skin type was never taken into account by designers, unlike the rich and famous stars who always look good, that’s because these designers focus solely on what would suit or not suit each individual. How are the girls of today expected to look as fabulous unless they get the same treatment? The only one that can know what will suit you is you and not some stranger who has never set eyes on you.

It makes sense to put your own fashion ideas to use and into the bargain cost-effective. Design your own label? Who knows maybe your friends will want a piece of the action and a great way of making money too. Top designers started this way.

Tip: check out your jewellery box for odd broken pieces or visit a charity shop to pick up bits like gold or silver chains pendants rings pearls beads brooches etc. These can be used to decorate some of your already wardrobe content that is still in great condition but not as fashionable as they once were.

Look for scarves they make fabulous fashion accessories and colourful too for that drab outfit that needs that little something to set it off.

Make your own sparkly neck choker with glitter. Add studs in your own pattern. It’s your choice as to what and what you can do to put your own mark on it.

Hats will have heads turning so consider one or two for the wardrobe to stand out and be noticed. You can add jewellery bits and colourful feathers to headwear and make them your own

How many greeting cards come with tiny bows and more, save these and work with them. Add them to hair bands or stick them to shoes or boots. Gifts tend to come with some real eye-catching bits and bobs, so make these work for you. A lot can be done with silk flowers as well. It’s a cheap way to look good and fashionable… who needs fashion designers when you have you. To anyone wanting to save money and be fashionable all you need is imagination.

Hide Those Extra Pounds – The Ultimate List Of Plus Size Dressing Tips

Fashion is not about trends, glamour and all those flashy things. It is all about how you interpret your own style statement. Fashion can mean different things to different people, but if you are on the heavy side, you might have fewer choices. Let’s agree on one thing – the fashion industry has been partial to petite women. They undeniably have the best brands, options, and trends to their benefit.

Thankfully, things have changed considerably in the last few years. These days, we have brands that focus on plus size fashion clothing for women. However, if you are looking to style better, we have a few tips below to help you, and yes, these are just suggestions. Ultimately, you are your best stylist on a budget.

Do Not Wear Tight Clothes:

Yes, most plus size women end up buying sizes that are either too large or small for them. Wearing a clingy top won’t add to your shape, and a loose fitting dress will not do any good either. Make sure that you wear the right size. Check online to find a few brands that focus on this segment and have a good range of options. Since the returns are easy with online sellers, you can always order two sizes to find the best fit.

Invest in Shapewear:

Shapewear is not meant to bring down your waist size. Instead, the right shapewear will help in toning your body, so that you can wear skirts and dresses without a second thought. Shapewear comes in different sizes and styles, and you can choose a full-body design, which will tone your belly, waist, back and thighs at the same time. Also, if required, spend on a better brand that uses breathable fabrics.

Shrugs and More Shrugs:

If you are unsure of how to pull off a tight top, a shrug or summer jacket is your best friend. Shrugs help in getting the layered look, which transfers the attention to the clothes, instead of your body. Instead of the boring black and blue, go for bright colors that can add some pop element to the entire look. Also, it’s a good idea to choose summer blazers, which can be taken to work, as well.

Avoid Styling around the Problem Area:

If you are obese, you certainly have a problem area. This can be your midsection or the arms. Depending on your body, avoid wearing clothes that can emphasize those areas. For examples, for a protruding belly, you cannot wear a peplum top. Try to appreciate your highlights. Go for vertical designs, V-necklines, and stripes that will add more style to your regular looks.

Finally, don’t forget to experiment. There are no hard and fast rules in fashion anymore. It is all about being comfortable, and for that, you need to try new things. Move out of your regular zone and try things you haven’t tried. You will either win with a chic look or learn from simple fashion mistakes – In both cases, you win!
