woman in white blouse (400x400)It’s never been easier to reinvigorate your wardrobe. Designers have finally made clothes that look great on real women. I consider the following five items to be awesome additions to any chic casual wear collection. These pieces will amp up your style factor, and they won’t break the bank.

Read on to find out more about these must-haves for today’s plus size woman.

1. Light weight maxi skirt

Long knit skirts look good on almost any woman, especially when paired with a cute tank top and blue jean jacket.  Add gladiator sandals to complete this trendy outfit. Another bonus is that maxi skirts keep one cool on hot days.

2.  White blouse

White blouses can be used in many different ways. For instance, one thrown on as a swim suit cover up looks effortlessly chic, while one buttoned up and paired with black capris is suitable for a casual dinner out.  Add a colorful belt, such as red or yellow, for a dash of pizazz.

3.  Stretchy jump suit

Jump suits have come roaring back on the fashion scene.  And why not?  This garment takes the guess work out of trying to match a blouse with slacks!  In essence, a woman can comb her hair into a sleek ponytail, add a dash of make-up, pull on an up to the minute jumpsuit, and be out the door in minutes. Easy and elegant.

4.  Sleeveless Tunic

Warm weather calls for a sleeveless tunic dress in a bright color. Imagine a coral tunic cinched at the waist with a gold belt.  Add white leggings and gold sandals, and you are ready to hit the boardwalk.  While comfortable, this outfit still sends a strong message that you care about your appearance.

5.  V Neck T

One clothing item to purchase in several colors is the v neck T.  This handy top works with anything from black leggings, to a blue jean skirt, to white capris.  Check out this T that sells for only $8.00 on fashiontofigure.com. It comes in delicious colors such as red, orange, green, navy, and pink. Don’t forget black and white as well! You’ll be amazed at how good you look.


The clothing pieces described above will infuse some serious fun into your casual wardrobe.  You can’t go wrong with a maxi skirt, a white blouse, a jump suit, a sleeveless tunic dress, and several v neck T’s.  For just a little bit of money, you’ll look every bit the fashionista.
