With each new season comes a slew of trends to try and if you’re anything like us, it can be pretty overwhelming trying to figure out which will work for a fabulous full-size figure. Everything from Citrusy brights, pure whites, abstract florals, tribal patterns, and geometrics walked the runways during Full Figured Fashion Week, so we thought we would take a few cues straight from the catwalk and break down what we consider to be, the best of spring fashion with a few tips on which trends translate best to a curvy figure and advice on how to wear them. So, without further ado we give you 3 of Spring’s most wearable trends to try:
Photo prints, fabric collages, stripes, animal prints and florals (specifically small and extra-large floral prints) are going to be everywhere this season, from jeans and jackets to accessories and dresses. Speaking of which, dresses are back in a big way and are ideal for ALL plus-size frames. When looking for spring dresses it’s important to focus on finding a fit that hugs you at the smallest part of your body, for most of us that is right below our bust or about a sideways hand length above your navel, we call that fit an empire waist and it truly is the most universally feminine and flattering cut. The key to conquering this trend: Be aware of scale — meaning, don’t go too small or too large for your frame and remember, neutral accessories such as shoes, belts and handbags are your friend!
This season has brought a new, more modern spin to the cult-classic bohemian trend. Less gimmicky, but equally as eye-catching, this season’s boho is more about subtly and effortless styling. In lieu of peasant skirts and piles of jewelry opt for opulent fabrics and textures, sumptuous prints, and easy silhouettes. One of the best things about this trend is that it will carry you all the way through to the cooler months, come fall you can transition your spring/summer bohemian pieces by paring them with lots of layers in deep rich hues.
Forget pastels, an absence of color is the big story for spring, as crisp black and white take center stage! Translate this look into your own wardrobe with bold graphic prints, stripes, and color-blocking in these contrasting shades. It’s clean and simple; add it to your wardrobe in anything from clothing to totes, shoes, and jewelry. One great tip to keep in mind when you’re tackling this chic look is: If you’re wearing bold stripes or a large scale print in one part of your outfit, keep the rest of your look simple. I.E. if you’re rocking a black and white top pair it with a neutral bottom and accessories!
