Ever notice how glossy magazines always talk about the latest trends like skinny jeans, bodycon dresses, and itty bitty playsuits? Very rarely do the mainstream media talk about what plus size fashion’s going to look like despite women like Tess Holliday saying that it’s ‘vital that women know you don’t need to be a size ten to look good.’ Sadly there’s still a lot stigma around being plus size, so with all this negativity you could be forgiven for thinking that no larger lady ever looks good which is obviously not true! All you have to do is look at Hollywood’s first curvy girl the ever glamorous, impossibly beautiful Marilyn Monroe!
A Cute Skater Dress
No matter what size you are a lovely, patterned skater dress, black leggings or tights paired with over-the-knee or ankle boots looks gorgeous. Don’t try to hide in shapeless tunics; many women would kill to have your waist, hips or bum so add a sparkly belt and show off what mother nature gave you! If you’re worried about looking bigger than you are then try to avoid horizontal stripes or clothes that have no give such as shift dresses. Ezibuy’s plus size range have a lovely array of dresses in a multitude of beautiful styles, colors, and shapes that’ll suit everyone as well as fun maxi, fit and flare, and crossover dresses perfect for work, drinks with the girls and Saturday shopping sprees.
Shaped T- Shirt
Lots of larger ladies are afraid to wear T-Shirts in case the fabric accentuates their stomach’s. In fact, by attempting to cover it up you’re actually drawing people’s attention. Look for T-shirts in quality cotton that aren’t see through and if you feel self-conscious either pop a cami top underneath or wear it with a light jacket which will help slim down your silhouette. Try to avoid T-shirts that aren’t tailored as it’s important the material fits properly at the waist and shoulders otherwise fabric can bunch together and look cheap.
Cardigans, jumpers and jackets with full sleeves help give the illusion that your arms are longer than they are. Look for cardigans in soft cashmere, or polyester which have a fluid shape and drape nicely across your upper body instead of denim, or leather cropped jackets that give you a boxy appearance. Waterfall cardigans are also good as they tend to break up an outfit as well as giving you something to pull over yourself if you’re feeling chilly or a little insecure. Why not team bootcut jeans with a boat neck T and a soft waterfall cardigan? Add some chunky, statement earrings and a chain necklace and you’ve got a great Saturday night outfit.
Well Fitting Jeans
Every woman needs a good pair of jeans but if your body’s more Kim K, J Lo or Christina Hendricks than Jennifer Lawrence, Keira Knightley and Anne Hathaway then that goes double. A decent pair of jeans that doesn’t sag or worse pull, will make you look and feel like a million dollars. While you may think you can’t pull off a pair of skinny jeans you’ll be surprised what the right material, size or even brand can do for you.
