Spring Fashion Tips for Plus Size Women: You'll Love Your Options This Season!Shopping for a fuller figure can sometimes be challenging. Dressing for warmer weather can also present its own set difficulties – so what’s a girl to do? Fear not, full-figured ladies: following these tips and guidelines will have you stepping out in style this spring.
Pick Flattering Florals – Bright patterns and colors are a no-brainer for spring but it’s important to keep your body type in mind when picking a flowered frock. If you’re going to be wearing an all-over print on a dress or long skirt stick to medium and small prints. If you want to opt for a larger floral print stick to just a top of silk scarf to keep it from looking like you’re wearing a blossoming bush.
Make it a Maxi – The maxi dress has been a big hit in warmer weather for the past few seasons for women of all sizes and luckily, it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere. These floor length dresses come in cooling fabrics like cotton and terry-cloth and are a far cry from your grandma’s muumuu. New cuts for the maxi highlight the waist and give the legs a streamlined appearance. Pair it with flip-flops for a poolside affair or throw on a pair of heeled sandals for a night on the town.
Stay Neutral – Earth tones like taupe, nude, soft grays, olive, browns and khaki don’t have to be boring! These colors are working their way into everything from shorts, to swimsuits and accessories and are especially flattering for the fuller-figured. Add a pop of color with a bejeweled broach, neon scarf or bright straw beach hat. Another plus? Neutral pieces can carry over to other seasons giving you more bang for your buck.
Remember that nothing is off-limits in plus-size fashion, it’s all about finding things that make you look and feel good. Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun when getting dressed this spring.
