Looking adorable and fashionable is every girl’s dream. Even plus size women are not an exception. According to a common observation, curvy women do not bother to follow the basic dressing up rules to balance their proportions, and they finally end up on a frumpy look. You are in luck as I am going to share the latest plus size fashion trends 2018 to smooth out your curves.
Plus Size Fashion Looks
If you really want to get all your curves at the right place, stick to these trendy outfit ideas for plus size.
Part1: Plus Size Outfit Ideas for Summer
Summer is all about wearing light weight fabrics like chiffon, cotton, linen, silk and organza. Let’s see what outfit ideas this season has to offer.
1.One-Color Blouse for Summer
Being a plus size girl, you have a heavier torso. Balance the look by flaunting your curves in some plain and preferably asymmetrical tops. As we are talking about summer, opt for lighter fabrics like chiffon, silk, thin cotton or organza.
A top with off the shoulder neckline or cut out detailing not just smooths out the heavy look; it also adds more to your overall style. To complete the look, pair it up with a plain and straight denim.
Outfits too fit or too lose, both ate not recommended for plus size women—find something that fits in comfortably.
- Printed Romper
There was a time when plus size women were told not to wear prints, especially the bigger ones. But the latest trends suggest prints good for your overall look. Prints tend to hide a number of physical flaws like saggy boobs and bulges. I would recommend you to stick to medium-sized prints. When it comes to spring/summer, floral prints are the best.
Try a romper with a delicate print and soothing color scheme. Long sleeves, V-neckline and belted waistline, all tend to give you a slimming and flattering look.
- Plus Size Palazzo Pant
Over-weight girls have comparatively heavier hipline. Wearing a fashion staple like a wide-legged pant or a palazzo helps in smoothing that full-hipped look. Talking of trends, printed palazzos are the best option to add a flair of Hollywood glamor—especially with plain crop tops and strappy shoes with high heels.
- A-Line Dresses/ Maxi Dresses
Get your hands on some perfectly stitched flowy and flouncy dresses with A-line silhouette. A-line silhouette is perfect for trimming the waistline. Prefer summer-specific fabrics like chiffon to get a show-stopping look.
This trend is perfect for the gals with a pear-shaped body. The loose fabric that falls around the curvy lower body part, helps in camouflaging the heavy hipline. If you don’t want too much of leg-show, opting for A-line maxi dresses is the second-best option to go with.
- Summer Shorts
Shorts are not just a trend, it is a necessity in summer. Plus size girls can incorporate them freely in their everyday look. There is a diversity of lengths to choose from—too short, knee-length or long in Capri-style. The most recommended short trends this season include—denim overalls, printed shorts or simple denim shorts. To add more to your comfort level, just put on a kimono. Just like in the image below.
- Statement Print Sheath Dress for Plus Size
Because sheath dresses are body hugging and fitted, it does not mean that you can’t wear them. Sheath style accentuates a curvy body. The slim-fit style not just adds structure, but it also promises a more tailored look by nipping your lumps and bumps. So, next time when you feel confused about what to wear on a weekend party—just opt for the one with classy print. Lastly, don’t forget stiletto in footwear, it would stretch out your silhouette.
- Cropped Stripe Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits are one of the comfiest and trendiest summer staples for plus size girls. Since you are a little more in weight, we recommend pulling off an outfit with vertical stripes. Besides looking fab, the striped print adds a slimming effect. If it is a windy day outside, pair it up with a blazer or a denim jacket.
- Party Wear Trends for Plus Size
Curvy girls who are looking for the trendiest clothes for a night out on the town or a black-tie party, just doll up with an adorable fit and flared prom dress. The fitted waistline smooths bulgy tummy and the flared lower part camouflages hipline and thighs. Go for knee-length if your legs are your assets; if you think your torso is the best part of your body, accentuate your curvy top with some floor length gown with detailing on the top. Wear stiletto heels and avoid over-accessorizing—you are all set to dazzle the party.
- Denim Dress
Denim flounce dress is one of the coolest and trendiest things to pull off in the scorching heat of summer. Settling on an off the shoulder style would divert the focus from heavy torso towards the top.
- Flowy Summer Wrap Dress
Wanna spend a day on the beach? Just pick out a flowy and flouncy wrap dress to feel the cool breeze.
