Trendy Plus-Size Clothing

There was a time in fashion when trendy plus-size clothing was a myth.
Plus-size clothing, if at all available in a store, was relegated to a far corner along the back wall. Many designers simply increased the amount of material rather than take into account that the style and shape needed to be changed in order to be flattering. Thankfully, times have changed and the world of plus-size fashion has exploded onto the red carpet, the runway and most stores.
This fall you can expect dazzling prints, fantastic colors and luxurious fabrics for every style.
The biggest seller for the fall will definitely be dresses. Gone are the shapeless bags of the past and today’s modern and trendy plus-size woman has a vast selection of dresses to fit any situation. The Maxi dress was a huge hit in the summer months for the casual get together with friends and family but this fall it’s being showcased in a new light. Paired with a lightweight blazer or sweater and some chunky jewelry and earrings it has become the “go to” outfit for the office or lunch with friends.
Another fashion trend that has endured for several seasons is color blocking. On dresses it can make an incredibly bold statement. The best bet is to choose color blocked dresses with simple lines across the bust and darted lines near the waist to create an alluring hourglass figure devastatingly gorgeous for a date.
Fall means parties and this is a fabulous time for party dresses. Forget the little black dress and take a daring chance on something short, sparkly and designed to wow any crowd. The current trend for dresses is a daring hemline. Many plus-size fashionistas have been a bit hesitant. Forget that mentality and pick out a bold color with one of the shortened hemlines. Add in a daring high heel and it’s an instant dazzling outfit.
For those holiday parties where you want to be a bit more subtle and laid back, try one of the new fall dresses with a bit of a lace and and old-fashioned “Peter Pan” collar. The debuting colors are soft and flatter virtually every skin tone.
This truly is the season for the dress and it is going to be an astounding season for trendy plus-size clothing.
