Latest Plus Size Fashion Trends
Summer is here, and that means longer days, lots of sunshine, and a packed social calendar. Every summer we find ourselves attending weddings, BBQs, holiday parties -- events where we’re sure you can show off the latest plus size fashion trends! This year, the summer trends for plus size women are all about dressing boldy and commanding attention. Take a look at a few of our favorites:
Fashion-week runways this year were so colorful, and this look is great on women of all sizes. With the right fit, a brightly-colored outfit can draw the eye to your assets and make you look amazing. This is one of the trends we love most, as it encourages curvy girls to embrace their bodies and express their beautiful, colorful personalities!
Floral patterns are typically a popular choice for spring fashion. But take a look around you: those blossoms didn’t go away when the seasons changed! Florals are another summer trend for plus size women that we can’t get enough of. If you use a proportional print (tiny rosebuds will disappear on a curvy body, for example), this look can be flirty and feminine in all the right ways.
Former Catholic school girls, be warned: plaid and checkerboard patterns are coming back this summer. This is one of the latest plus size fashion trends we think you can do the most with, as the pattern itself can be dressed up or down in many ways. A tartan a-line skirt with a simple white tank top? Preppy-chic. A plaid button down (sleeves rolled up, of course) with denim shorts and sneakers? Grunge edginess at it’s finest. Just use your imagination!
Our favorite thing about the latest plus size fashion trends is how versatile they are. For example, whether your look is more “flirty flapper”or “cute cowgirl,” fringed clothing and accessories are one trend you’ll want to add to your wardrobe. There are many different ways you can style this trend, from fringe-covered, vintage-style dresses to simple accent pieces.
A Tropical Touch
Tropical prints have been a summer staple for years, but, this summer, they’ve really taken center stage for many designers. This trend combines two others we’ve already talked about -- bright colors and floral prints (specifically palm leaves and tropical blossoms) -- into one bold look you’ll want to sport all summer long for every single occasion.
Whatever you decide to wear this summer, remember: wearing the latest plus size fashion trends isn’t just about looking fabulous. It’s about expressing yourself and feeling your best! So get out there, find your favorite curvy fashion, and work it all season long!
