Take a stroll along the high-street and you’ll see a whole host of exciting trends available right now – will you embrace these new trends or stick to your comfort zone? We believe life is too short for playing it ‘safe’. Maybe it’s time to experiment with different styles for spring time?
Don’t let society dictate to you what you should and shouldn’t wear, be proud of your curves and flaunt them in different ways. Perhaps you associate floral print with your grandma’s curtains? Or think stripes are only for skinny models? Well think again!
Take a look at these styles… how can you resist?
Plus Size Stripe Trend
Top from Debenhams
Stripes never go out of fashion because to put it simply… they’re fabulous. Nautical stripes look great teamed with navy and red and candy stripes can add a playful element to your look too. Don’t worry about the vertical stripe versus horizontal stripe rule either… just experiment and see what suits your body shape – simple!
This modern striped tunic is on-trend and flattering and would look great worn with a pair of skinny jeans or black leggings. Team with heels for added oomph!
Plus Size Floral Trend
Trousers from Evans
The floral trend doesn’t have to be frumpy or old fashioned. On the contrary, floral prints are totally in this season and should be embraced. You don’t have to go traditional either with a classic floral dress; floral prints this season have been seen on everything from handbags, tops, accessories and trousers.
These pansy print trousers encompass the look perfectly in a fun and flirty kind of way. Wear with a waist-cinching belt and a pair of ballet pumps.
Plus Size Faux Leather Trend
Skirt from New Look
Such a sexy trend and one that we will certainly be wearing! The faux leather trend has bags of attitude and provides the perfect antidote for those who dislike anything too ‘girly’. In fact we’re going to go so far as saying that you’d be able to get lots of wear out of a pair of faux-leather trousers or a faux-leather skirt.
This skater skirt is incredibly versatile and would look equally great with a colour-pop jumper or sheer floaty blouse – wear with winter boots or a pair of platform heels for an up-to-date look. Also, to keep things classy, wear with an opaque pair of simple or patterned black tights.
Plus Size White and Cream Trend
Top from ASOS
Ignore articles that tell you to avoid light colours if you’re no size zero – it’s rubbish! That’s what we say. White and beige is big this season and when worn the right way, it will add elegance to your style. This simple top hugs your curves in all the right places and would look very sexy worn with faux-leather trousers or skinny jeans.
Plus Size Ruffle Trend
Dress from New Look
Offering a little nod to the new romantic era, it’s time to experiment with the new trend for ruffles, yes you heard us right… ruffles! Don’t worry about them adding more bulk to your shape, the volume that they add will actually create a flattering shape. This rouched and ruffled dress has a classic style that is guaranteed to turn heads – wear with high heels and a tousled up-do for maximum impact.
