2013 Plus Size Summer Fashion Tips and Trends

plus sizeSummer is right around the corner, and if you started looking for plus size fashion tips and trends for the upcoming season – you came to the right place.

Fashion has been incorrectly tagged as something that only slim women can have. Over the years, fashion has been portrayed by women who are slim on the runway, on magazines, and on television. This has placed the incorrect notion in the minds of many people.

There are many women today who are becoming unhappy with their weight and they are having a difficult time choosing the right set of clothes that would make them look fashionable.

They have believed that if they actually wear plus size clothing they can never truly become attractive and fashionable. Plus size women simply need to choose the right type of clothes to wear to make them feel comfortable, fashionable, and attractive. 

Plus Size Fashion Tips #1. Identifying Body Shape

The first thing that needs to be done is to identify your body shape. I believe that you need to consider wearing the right style of clothes that fits your body shape. You can either have an hourglass figure, inverted triangle figure, pear shape figure, or boy figure. Once you have identified your figure shape, this would make it easier for you to choose the right type of trendy clothing to wear.

Plus Size Fashion Tips #2. Highlight Your Best Feature

It is also a good option to highlight your best body features. This way, you can feel more confident with the way you carry yourself wearing trendy clothes since you have something attractive to show to the people.

Plus Size Fashion Tips #3. Choosing the Right Color and Material

You may have specific considerations when it comes to color and material of the clothing. It is ideal to choose those lightweight materials since heavier clothing will tend to look bulkier when worn.

Darker colors are also common for plus size fashion since these have slimming effects.

Black and white is a popular color this season. In addition to this, bright red and colors of neon and pink daises are also popular.

You may also see more of orange, lemon, azure, emerald green, and blue colors this summer. Playing it up with contrast is also quite trendy this season. Prints are popular as well. These can come in animal, floral, stripes, graphic, and ethnic designs.

Plus Size Fashion Tips #4. Fashion Trends for Plus Size Women

For this summer, fashion for plus size women would range from classic silhouettes that come with a modern twist and geometrical styles, retro styles, as well as romantic styles.

Those cardigans and blouses with asymmetrical bottom are still trendy. In addition to this, unusual necklines, pleats and drapes, Basque and flounces as well as V and semicircular necklines are also hitting the trendy list for this summer.

Skirts are also in style. The most fashionable plus size skirts now are pencil skirts, flared, tulip skirts, pleated, as well as draped skirts. Most skirt styles would also include asymmetrical details.

Leggings, banana pants, and wide pants are also in fashion. Dresses of x-silhouette style in variable lengths are in. Moreover, plus size dresses with ¾ sleeves are also in.

For the evening dresses, the little black dress tops the list. Moreover, trendy evening dresses that come with a beautiful neckline and accent around the waist are popular. For wedding dresses this summer, classic silhouettes as well as lace are in fashion.

Designs like V neck line, cap sleeves, and asymmetry are popular over summer wedding dresses for plus size women.

Plus Size Fashion Tips #5. Making a Fashion Statement!

I believe being trendy does not necessarily mean that you go for those clothes typically worn by slimmer women on the runway.

Plus size women can still become fashionable without having to dwell on wearing uncomfortable clothes made for slim women. You can make your own fashion statement and choose those styles that are in fashion but are rather comfortable to wear.

    All women are beautiful, especially if they don’t have just meat and bones. I personally like shapely women – they look more feminine.
