Tips and tricks for the plus size fashionista
Flaunt what you got
Instead of worrying about concealing problem areas, draw attention away from those spots by highlighting features that you love. For example, if your tummy is a trouble area, but you have a great neckline, use colorful and interesting pieces such as necklaces and silk scarves to accentuate your decolletage. This will serve to draw the eye upwards and away from your belly.
Mix and match
We love loose, flowy tops and dresses for summer. But as with anything, you can have too much of a good thing. Wearing clothes that are too baggy can hide your figure and create a shapeless look. Don’t hide those beautiful curves under a tent! Mix and match flowy and form- fitting outfits. For example, you can pair a flowy top with leggings or skinny jeans. You can also use belts to add some definition to your natural waistline when wearing flowy dresses.
Embrace the big comfy tee
Listen, no matter what your body type, we all have days where we feel bloated. Maybe you ate too many salty snacks the night before- whatever the case may be, there are times where you just want to feel comfy and effortless. Don’t worry, we got you covered. Brands we carry include Neon Body, which offer comfy fabrics in chic, minimalist designs. Or for a pop of color, Jess and Jane offers flowy shirts in unique patterns in all sizes.
Simply pair your oversized tee with a pair of leggings and some cute accessories for a put together, yet casual look.
Even the most slender body can benefit from shapewear, especially underneath a bodycon dress or other items of tight fitting clothing. Shapewear smoothes out any lumps or bumps and conceals lines for a flawless look no matter what you’re wearing.
