Hi beauties, this is Chakayla! Have you ever felt like the lone curvy girl in a skinny world? Well, welcome to my world! To help shake off those crazy thoughts, I have created ten plus size fashion tips that help reboot my personal style and psyche! This is not a strict guide by any means, please feel free to mix match these plus size tips to fit your personal style.
1. Fabric Matters
Fabrics like cotton and jersey are curve-loving fabrics while materials like spandex will show every lump/bump you do not want to show (thank goodness for shapers).
2. Know Your Measurements
Whether you go to a seamstress or follow a brand’s size guide, it is important that you know how clothing precisely accentuates your figure.
3. Accentuate Your Waist
Polish your look by tucking in your tee or wearing a high waist skirt.
4. Embrace Colors & Prints ( & Textures too!)
Being plus size does not have to be boring! Play up your wardrobe with fun details that already exist in your wardrobe.
5. Play Up Your Favorite Feature
Whether it’s your legs or your waist, wear clothing that highlight those features.
6. Balancing Proportions
Polish your look by balancing not only the lengths of your hems but also how tight/loose your bottoms or tops are. Just a rule of thumb: if it’s short (tight) up top, make it long (loose) at the bottom and vice versa.
7. High Waist It!
Simply, when in doubt rock a high waist bottom to make your torso appear slimmer.
8. Mix Your Prints
Have fun and mix and match your prints! To make your look more cohesive, find one common color in both prints to complete the look.
9. Rock Your Skirts
Let your legs go bare! Not only is it a confidence booster, but it’s absolutely sexy!
10. Do YOU!
The whole purpose of these tips and tricks are to help enhance what you already have going on! Do you and be happy while doing so.
