Ahhhh! The crispness of the days, the heady aroma of pumpkin everything and the sudden uptick in one’s social calendar can mean only one thing; it’s that time of the year. After the languorous days of summer, fall is a welcome change and keeps us happy until winter starts nipping at our toes.
Fall ushers in new wardrobe change, so let’s look at a few fall trends for the plus-size fashionistas.
1. Rich Hues.
Amazing autumn-hued accent pieces draw attention in all the right places for curvy women. Opt for radiant reds and browns with matching shoes. Bright colors like blues and greens can also shake up your look.
2. Distressed Denim jackets.
Fall weather is unpredictable and hence, layering is the way to go. Look to distressed and detailed denim jackets for an instant pick me up.
3. Set your sights on a cape.
Capes are the new statement pieces. Invest in a good-quality flowy Cape for the office go to look. The look can be dressed down a bit for even the most casual night out with friends. Capes can also be paired with jumpsuits in a solid color. Bonus, you will be all warm and snug while making a statement.
4. Wraparound fun.
Wraparounds are a curvy woman’s best friend. Dresses and tops hug curves and makes the wearer feel confident. You can accessorize your dress with jewel toned jackets and even the ubiquitous Cape.
5. Skinny Belts.
Skinny belts help to cinch in the waist and give structure to shapeless blouses and tunics. These belts are versatile so pair them with tea frocks for an elegant party or cinch in tunics with a shrug and jeans for a more casual look. If you feel up to it, you can tie a belt over your coat for that additional oomph factor.
6. Metallic Bling.
The easiest way to glam up is to add a bit of solid bling to the mix. Pair gold clutches and bags with light flowy dresses to add an edge to your look. Gold chains and pretty anklets will make you feel more feminine. Although the mantra is not to mix metals and keep a single tone. Always remember to stick to a few basic pieces and not go overboard. The metallic hued accents also complement the festive season.
7. Colour Blocking.
Colour blocking makes an eye-catching statement. Wear a complimentary solid shade as your top and your bottom. You can round it up with statement bags and high heels, and you will end up feeling confident. Avoid neons and opt for feminine tones like purple and pink.
8. Fancy Boots.
Fall is the season for boots, and thigh highs give a sophisticated slant to the outfit. Boots fit snugly and emphasize curves. They are great at drawing attention to well-shaped calves. Pair boots with seasonal corduroy and suede for a glammed-up look. Add in statement bags and jewel-toned leather jacket to round off the look.
9. High-Low Dresses.
These dresses are equally great for formal events and casual events. Cinch them in with a skinny belt and accessorize with lofty heels to draw attention to toned legs. An instant confidence booster, high-low dresses add a layer of femininity and elegance.
10. Plaid choices.
Canada is always plaid friendly. These prints are an easy way to up the fashion stakes. Choose one piece of print in the entire look to make sure that it doesn’t look too busy. Plaid skirts and even coats add a fun colorful touch to the fall look.
All these looks are great for plus-sized women. Remember to accessorize with statement pieces like patterned scarfs, studded jackets or metallic bling. Never mix too many things-only one item is needed to add an edge and keep it classy.
So, what are you waiting for? Let the compliments roll in, while you are out slaying the world in your sassy plus-size fashion.
