Brands worldwide are realizing the importance of making bigger (16 and over) as it is a huge and highly ignored market and easily worth millions. The few brands that do cater to the plus size fashion are usually over- priced and not always trendy. It may take some time for the market to catch up but there’s no reason for the beautiful curvy ladies to sit around waiting for that to happen.
For all the voluptuous ladies out there, here are a few things you can add to your everyday wardrobe and look uber-stylish!
A vibrant colourful scarf can do wonders to your look! Wear it with a plain white shirt and denims, a chic haircut, and a dash of gloss. It’s a fun, easy ensemble and looks super-fun.
TOPS/ SHIRTS WITH INTERESTING SLEEVES
Don’t stick with the boring sleeves. Bell sleeves, cut-out sleeves, draped sleeves – there are many types that cover the arm and yet look very fashionable and on-trend! Even sheer sleeves are a great idea for covering the arm, yet showing a hint of skin!
STRAIGHT-CUT PANTS/ DENIMS
A straight cut denim works better than a tapered or skinny fit. Pants and denims look even better in a solid colour, say dark blue or black. Stay away from the acid wash designs that tend to highlight all the wrong places!
MAXI DRESSES THAT OFFER STRETCH
A good solid colour in Olive green, Black, Oxford Blue, Marsala can look delicious paired with a scarf for a casual day look or some interesting jewellery for an evening look. The dress will fit better if it has a bit of stretch in it. Wear a good set of heels for the required height to carry this look. THE MARILYN MONROE
Marilyn Monroe had a voluptuous body shape, and would be considered overweight by today’s Hollywood standards! And yet, she pulled off the super-sexy, glamorous, curvy, Hollywood diva look thanks to the plunging neckline, fitted at the waist, knee-length dresses and swimwear, that she often wore. Instead of hiding her curves, she celebrated them, which is what the Marilyn Monroe Fit does!INTERESTING JEWELLERY/ ACCESSORIES
One of the things people notice first about you is not what you are wearing but how you’ve put together an outfit. Which is where an interesting piece of jewellery/ accessory comes in. Thoughtful purchases like a vintage brooch or watch, a tasteful neckpiece or a trendy bag with your dress or kurta canmake a simple look transform into something interesting!COLOR BLOCKING
Colors can play tricks, and help you highlight or hide areas of your body. Electric blue leggings worn with a white kurta can look smashing, if you want to take attention away from your midriff and towards your legs. Or a marsala top with dark blue denims can look great as well. Experiment with colour blocking, we say!And here’s the most important thing. Don’t forget to carry the attitude that size matters and you’re proud of it! And no matter what, shoes always fit, click here to shop now!
