00-Monif-C-Spring-2012-Look

While at Girls Night Out, I was talking with a young lady who was wondering  how to shop plus size and still be current and hip.  So here are some Tips for the Plus Sized Ladies Out there! Enjoy!

Its important to learn how to dress YOUR body.If there’s a trend going that you like, find a way to incorporate the trend tailored to you and figure… it will help along way!

I am of the mindset that anyone can wear anything if they have the confidence to pull it off, I understand that some things are basics that you should have in your closet.

WRAP DRESS

So, first I would suggest a good wrap dress. This bad boy has traveling pants magical powers. Whoever slips one on is instantly, curvy, pulled together and ready for any occasion. This will be for the times that you aren’t sure what to wear. So I’d make friends with them and fast. You can grab a few below:

FLATTERING SKIRT

Next, a just as flattering piece would be an a-line skirt. This skirt will just lightly graze over your hips and thighs and give a some leg. Ooow! Now, again, I may be a bit on the girly side (well, a lot hehe) but a-line skirts will work for just about every occasion. With a blazer for work, a jean jacket for brunch and a t-shirt for running errands on the weekend. Below are a few I thought were really cute and if your feeling ultra sexy go for a shorter length… but not too short!:

SEXY JEANS

Now, because every girl should have a pair of jeans in her closet that make her feel like the hautest thing since sliced bread, I’m going to recommend a pair of jeans. Bootcut jeans, again, universally flattering shape. They sit at a comfortable place on your waist, are straight through the thigh with a bit of a flare at the bottom of the jean that works wonders.

So a few more things:

-When it comes to prints, the smaller the better.

-And if there is an area that you want to draw the eye away from, wear dark colors but pair them with something bright or fun.

-Oh, and last thing. You need to get into Gabi Gregg’s blog, Gabi Fresh. She will seriously inspire you to not limit yourself to what people think a plus size girls should wear which isn’t to negate what I shared in this post, because these are basics, but she’ll show you how to work things you thought you couldn’t.
