Do you kind of keep up with the trends that come out of New York and Paris each time they have a fashion week? If not, it’s OK, because those clothes really don’t hit the mainstream for another year or two, unless you have a lot of money to spend on a wardrobe from the designers. For us regular people who need plus sizes, we have to wait until the latest styles hit the racks of the stores. What to do in the meantime?
Shop For Your Season
While a person has to shop for the season changes in the north, a person in the south doesn’t have to worry about it as much. They don’t have to worry about getting the right outer wear color since the temperature never drops below 70 degrees. For people in the north, it’s all about the color black, blue and getting a heavy coat that will keep you warm in a blizzard. So, when you live in the north, all of those fun, summer dresses might look like a great buy, but in reality, they might not be the smartest unless there is a move in your near future.
Buy the Right Size
No matter if you are getting the blinged out jeans or the folded cuff shirt, get it in the right size. It could be the trendiest thing in the world, but if the size isn’t right, it won’t look good on you. A trendsetter is aware of their size and buys clothing that fits and feels good. They in turn feel confident and that trendsetter image sticks well.
The right sized clothing doesn’t mean just a big and baggy garment, either. Trendy plus sized clothing is tapered in the waist, fitted in the sides and meant to flatter any sized figure. Go to the stores that cater to plus sized individuals and you won’t ever have to worry about feeling less than confident in the clothes you wear – as long as they are the right size.
Also, the latest styles for petite people might look great on them, but make sure it is right for you. Do the capri pants in yellow with the pattern look cute or does it emphasize your thighs? Don’t buy a latest style because it looks good on a certain body type. Make sure it is your body type before you spend the money.
