Full-figured women should often look to elongating and flattering the form. Longer lines and well-fitted clothes are important to a positive look in a plus size. Following these guidelines will aid to lengthen and accentuate ones assets, while leaving one feeling light along with the trends of the season.
A Soft and flowing styles is a simple, versatile, and fresh component set that are all part of a great wardrobe. Utilizing the proper lines and flow of an article of clothing (or set of clothing) is important. It can be doubly so for plus size clothing as without proper flow an outfit may exacerbate unflattering lines.
Longer hemlines can do wonders for a shorter frame if one wishes to add height. You can also add height with a pair of fabulous slender boots or shoes.
Prints can also be utilized in plus size clothing with some caution. It is not necessarily the best option for petite, full-figures. But with some caution, a plus size clothing wearer can make print work for them. Certainly, if print is simply your style, then there is no reason to avoid it. However, in many cases texture is still a better option than print. If one decides to go for prints, choose a low/little contrast or even monochromatic options. For plus size clothing, the smaller the print the better. Be sure to only have one patterned piece per outfit.
White and bright colors often should be avoided. It is important to remember that white is not especially flattering for a full figure. It is often more fitting to utilize a cobalt blue or darker versions of the bright colors that are in this season. Putting bold colors on top paired with darker bottoms is a great way to draw the eye up and accentuate the face.
Statement accessories are another pitfall of the plus size clothing wearer. One must stay away from big jewelry because the contrast will only serve to make one look shorter and will add bulk to ones frame. Stick with medium-size to small jewelry instead. Long, layered necklaces and pendants are the best option.
Accessorizing with color is often a great idea, but it is important that one only has one statement color piece per outfit; too much color will often add bulk to ones frame, and of course, no plus size woman is looking for such accentuation. Belts and waistbands can be another great way to accessorize. When it comes to plus size clothing, stick to mid thickness belts that accentuate, but do not cinch the waist as it simply draws attention to the natural frame. Avoiding wider legs can also be a helpful tip. Bell-bottoms and flares will almost never do the trick that some believe they will. This season stick to straight legs that create longer lines and length. Avoid skinny jeans and tight fits in your plus size-clothing search.
