Plus Sized Women Fashion Tips August 15, 2016 06:25

Full figured women shouldn’t feel like they have to hide behind big and baggy clothes that are boring. There are some great fashion pieces out there that complement and look great on plus sized women.

Here are fashion tips for plus sized women.

Make Sure It’s Not Too Tight

Clothing that is tight will make you look bigger then what you are and the attention is put on your weight.

Rather buy clothing pieces that fit correctly and don’t worry about what the size label says.

Have a look in the plus sized section for well fitting clothes for your body.

Make Sure It’s Not Too Baggy

Larger women have the tendency to choose oversized clothing in the attempt to hide their body. The truth is that oversized clothing doesn’t hide your body and actually draws attention to it. Find clothes that skim over your body, giving you a clean silhouette. 

Go Darker On The Heavier Bits

Weight can be camouflaged easily with the right use of colour. If you want to show off a part of your body then lighter colours will highlight the area. If you want to make heavier parts look smaller then go for a darker colour.

Keep Details To A Minimum

Details attract attention and if they are placed wrong they make areas look larger. Jeans with details on the back pockets will accentuate your back for instance. The cut is also important and can accentuate or downplay certain parts. Sleeves that end on the thickest part of your arm, for instance, can make them look larger.

Scale Accessories

As a plus sized woman, you will need to go for heavier accessories so that your overall look is in proportion. Statement necklaces have the ability to draw the eye up to your face and away from other parts for instance.

The Right Fabric

It is best to avoid fussy fabrics and prints. Go for clean and classic cuts and designs. This gives you a chic and elegant appearance.

If You Love It, Buy It

If you find a piece that looks great on you then buy it. If it comes in different colours then you can get more than one. This applies to shirts, dresses, skirts and blouses.

Longer Is Better

If you want to hide your belly then go for longer tops as these have the ability to elongate your body and give the illusion of being slimmer.

Which Waist?

As a plus sized woman, you are able to go for high and low waists. Accentuate your curves with a high waist dress that has a slimmer waistline and add a belt for a fun look. A pair of pants on the other hand that sit low on your hips can help you to hide your belly.


V-neck tops look great on plus sized women, which make them a great choice.



Handbags Every Stylish Woman Should Own July 29, 2016 16:53

The handbags of today are now more than just functional pieces where one can keep their money, keys, mobile phones, and other belongings while being out and about. They are now essential parts of an individual's wardrobe, showcasing someone's fashion style and personality. There are so many types and designs to choose from today that it would be so tempting to splurge on these pretty creations. But if you really want to have the essentials, make sure you have these types of bags.       

A chic tote

A tote is classified by having an open top, two shoulder straps, and a square or rectangular shape with a large wide bottom. This is the perfect bag for doing some shopping, going to work, or running errands because you can fit a lot of stuff in it. If you'll be using it for work, it's best to buy a large one so your laptop, tablet, files and papers can fit. A medium one will be good enough to put your makeup, smartphone, and other essentials when you'll be out to shop. Get these in classic colours so you can easily match them with any outfit you'll be wearing for the day. 

A stylish shoulder bag

This is your go-to everyday bag when you won't be needing to bring a lot of stuff. They usually have sleek and sophisticated designs, making them appropriate for office and casual wear. Those in leather or suede are ideal for work days, while those in fabric or canvass are great for summer season or weekends out in the park. 

A classy clutch

For dressier occasions, a clutch should be the bag to tote. Go for pieces that are versatile and timeless so you can easily mix and match with your dresses. You can opt for more casual designs for your midday brunches or your quick trips to the store or coffee shop when you just want something that is easy to grab on the go.

A trusty crossbody bag

This is your alternative to a day clutch bag or shoulder bag for those days when you won't be needing to carry so much stuff but want your hands free. Avoid buying those that are too big so you won't be tempted to stuff too many things in it since you'll be carrying all that weight on your shoulders and back. Besides, the point is you want to have more movement instead of being limited and burdened.  

A versatile overnight bag

A duffel bag may fit all the things you need for a weekend trip, a gym session, or a day out with the kids, but it certainly won't complement your eye-catching outfits. That's why you need a roomy but chic bag that suits your lifestyle and fashion needs.

A quirky/statement/just-because-I-like-it bag

Consider this as your guilty pleasure handbag. You can splurge on a designer brand, buy an eye-catching piece that adds a pop of colour to your LBDs, or a funky-shaped clutch for clubbing.

With these handbags in your wardrobe, you are set to have pieces that are functional, practical, and stylish at the same time.
