March is here, which means for the most part the freezing temperatures are behind us and the weather will (hopefully) start to heat up soon. I don’t know about you, but I could definitely use a break from the cold – so why not focus on some Spring plus size fashion Trends to help us get over these winter blues. It’s time to get out your organizers ladies, start taking notes, and plan accordingly.
Black & White
Black and White has always been a classic combination, but these two power colors are having a major fashion moment this spring. It was the hottest trend on the runway, and will be hitting store shelves with a fury. The best part? Everyone – and I mean everyone, looks more glamorous and put together in black and white. This houndstooth tunic from Ulla Popken and Pebble Print blouse from Lane Bryant are great way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe.
Stripes & Polka Dots
For years curvy girls have been told that stripes and polka dots make them appear larger, but I’m here to tell you it’s simply not true! Choosing the right silhouette for your body type is what makes a difference, and makes any pattern look great – regardless of the shape or size. Stripes and Polka Dots are fun whimsical patterns that will brighten up your wardrobe this spring. The Embellished Chevron top by Lane Bryant, and the Heidi Structured top by SWAK Designs are great choices for this trend.
There really is no surprise floral prints are big for spring. Nothing says fresh spring breezes quite like pretty flowers, and honestly after a long harsh winter of heavy knits and wools – I welcome this flower frenzy with open arms! Not only will it lighten our mood, but also add a splash of color to our wardrobes. The Melrose Mesh top by Kiyonna, and the Floral Sateen Pencil Skirt by Lane Bryant have a healthy dose of this flower power trend.
Sick of hearing that plus size women should stick to dark colors? Me too. I say we ignore the staid advice and think bright thoughts this spring – as in neon bright! This trend might seem intimidating to some, so if you’re unsure if this super-bright trend is for you, start off small with accessories like the LB Kicks Canvas Sneakers, or the patent skinny belts from Lane Bryant.
Whatever trend you decide to play with this spring, remember to keep an open mind and try new things. Fashion is all about experimenting and seeing what works for you.
