The festive season is here – Halloween has been and gone and the first intimations of Yuletide are making themselves felt. Soon the office party season will be in full swing – so, the plus size lady is going to need something to wear. Whether you’re looking for party frocks or just some warm coats and dresses for the winter, it’s nice to know where to go – and of course, what is on offer.
This season’s trends are kind to every fashion palette. Unlike previous years, where everyone from plus size to Minnie Mouse has been shoehorned into the same set of dresses and wraps, 2012 AW season is all about expressing yourself properly. Individual tastes get individual styles – and that means the plus size lady can really complement her natural beauty at this year’s parties!
Wrap dresses are in this year, with a variety of styles and colors adding the finishing touches. Animal prints and floral prints make lovely additions to a winter wardrobe – while if you’re looking for something truly festive, there’s nothing better than a bright red wrap accessorized with a festive necklace.
It’s important to choose cuts and styles that make you feel comfortable. A larger lady in the chest area might wish to include a jacket with her outfits, to avoid feeling self-conscious in a crowd and to balance the silhouette. If you have a healthier figure, consider opting for trousers, a blouse and a jacket – or a long dress. Dresses with shorter hemlines can make such women look unbalanced.
There’s plenty of smart trendy plus size clothing on offer for the fashion conscious this year – and of course, not all of it is party wear. While party season is mainly about having fun and letting off some steam, there is still work to be done – and that means normal office clothes too. Ladies looking for executive clothing in this year’s cuts and colors will find plenty of trouser suits and smart jackets to finish of an office ensemble.
Don’t forget the outer layer as the autumnal chill starts to take hold and the real cool of winter is just over the horizon. Country cool is in this year, with padded jackets and body warmers making a welcome reappearance in a selection of colors. Choose sand or green for the real rural look – or smarten up with city black if you want to cross-pollinate your fashion choices, making an urban statement with that country chic look.
Herringbone is back too – wear is short with a skirt or trousers for a stunning effect. Grey herringbone with black trousers or blue jeans and a pale top will make a look suited to smart casual offices, laid back parties and evening drinks alike – a perfect mix and matching for the careful wallet!
There are plenty of trendy plus size clothing options to consider this season – from out and out party outfits to clothes suitable for a business day. Colors are demure and cuts range from long coats to fitted jackets.
