For those women who wear plus sized clothing, it can often be frustrating when it comes to shopping. First and foremost, there are not a lot of websites which cater to bigger sizes but are still fashionable. And secondly, fashion articles are revolved around women who are the size of models – an unrealistic figure for many. Nobody takes the time to advise real women about what trends are best suited to them. Keeping that in mind, this article will reveal the top trends in plus size dresses for autumn-winter 2014.
The most fashionable colour to wear in the coming season is blue. Blue is a great colour, in particular, because it is versatile; there is a shade to suit all skin tones, hair colours and body types. When it comes to plus size clothing, it is best to opt for a dark shade of blue such as midnight blue, zaffre or navy blue. A striking blue dress is a great way to make an impression yet look classy and sophisticated at the same time.
The next trend, which is perfect for formal occasions, is lace dresses. When used correctly, lace can add an element of glamour to any outfit. Lace was used in dresses throughout the autumn-winter 2014 fashion weeks. It was spotted on designer collections including Moschino, Christopher Kane, Mulberry and Temperley London. When using lace in a dress for an all over coverage, it is best to stick to dark colours such as black and navy. However, when only used in sections of the dress, it provides the perfect opportunity to add splashes of bright colours such as orange or fuchsia.
When it comes to dress shape, most people might have seen celebrities and socialites sporting the peplum trend at present. Celebrities who are fans of this trend include Jordin Sparks, Blake Lively, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian. Many people make the mistake of thinking peplum is best suited for those, who have little shape to their body. However, this is certainly not the case. Peplum is extremely flattering and is suited to all body shapes.
One trend capable of being interpreted and played around with in a number of ways is the military trend, which is raising its head again for the coming season. This trend is one, which is featured in autumn-winter 2014 collections including Moschino Cheap & Chic and McQ by Alexander McQueen. There is only one rule when it comes to looking for trends in this dress and that is regarding the colour used – go for khaki!
And finally, when looking for something exceptiona
l, go for embellished dresses with intricate designs. The following season marks the time to wear pretty quaint dresses rather than bold and loud ones.
The trends mentioned in this article should help all plus sized women find the perfect dresses to update their wardrobe with for the coming season. And don’t forget the final yet most important tip- remember to go for the look that feels most comfortable!
