Style Tips For Plus-Sized Fashionistas

Summer is the season when everyone’s fashion choices get a little sexier and a lot more colorful. It’s the season when less is more, and most of us start stocking our closets with sundresses, camisoles, and shorts. For a plus-sized fashionista, making the trends work and finding summer clothes that flatter can be a challenge. To get you started on your summer wardrobe, here are a few ideas plus-sized fashionistas can use.

Embellished Garments

It’s the small details (ruffles, pleats,  beading, or embroidery) that take the blouse or dress from chic to extraordinary. Stock up on chic tanks or tops with cool ruffles, cascading tiers, or intricate beaded details. You can wear these tops with jeans, pencil skirts, or crisp capri pants.

Denim Shorts

Show off a little leg this season with a great pair of denim shorts. The best styles hit mid-thigh or right at the knee. Make sure you try on a pair before you buy, because fit is everything. You want a pair that’s not baggy or tight; you need a pair that is slightly fitted though. Once you find a pair that looks great, stock up on 2 to 3, because you will wear them all summer long with simple tees and tanks!

Printed Dresses

A printed dress looks playful and feminine. It’s also a summer must-have for women of all sizes. Here are a few rules to keep in mind when shopping for the perfect summer dress for a plus-sized woman. Look for a style with wider straps and a surplice or v-neck. The wider straps will cover bra straps and a surplice neckline looks more figure flattering than a scooped neckline or halter.

A Pair of Sexy Sandals

Never underestimate the power of shoes. A terrific pair of sandals, whether it’s a pair of strappy heels or cozy wedges, will elevate your height and confidence. Most pairs are so versatile, you can wear sandals with everything from dresses to rompers to tees and jeans.
