There is a dilemma that every plus-sized woman might relate to while shopping for clothes. While the “regular” section has a plethora of options, the plus size women’s clothing section most probably has three plus size tops, two pants and two dresses (that resemble curtains anyway).
This may have made you want to scream in frustration, but the winds of change are blowing your way. Fashion brands these days have started adding more options and styles to plus size women’s clothing. Here is a list of trendy plus size clothing that are must-haves:
Go Ethnic With Kurtas
The advantage of Indian ethnic wear is that it suits everyone, no matter your size! With its high comfort factor, it is no wonder that many rely on the kurta-leggings/palazzos combo to get them through everyday life. With vibrant colours and quirky designs, these plus size women’s suits will ensure you have something new to wear every time you head out.
Wearing a cotton kurta with a pair of leggings or flared palazzos might be functional, but why dress it down when you can create a fabulous ensemble? One way you can switch up kurtas are by mixing and matching.
With embroidered Benarasi dupattas becoming all the rage, all you have to do is pair a plain kurta with matching cigarette pants and team them up with a jewel-coloured, ornately embroidered dupatta to switch up your look. This dupatta could be all you need to make your ordinary workwear into a party-ready outfit!
These plus size women’s suits are also super affordable when it comes to workwear options (though the price can go up for more heavily embroidered ones). So, pick one for each special occasion.
Take Something Good And Make It Better
Sarees are like a hot cup of coffee. We want one no matter what the season is, and everyone has their favourite type. With their ability to hide problem areas of the body, it has long been on top of plus size women’s clothing lists. And at Shoppers Stop, you can shop from a wide range of sarees, from ethnic to casual options.
However, did you know about jumpsuit sarees? Or dhoti sarees? If you thought they weren’t suitable for plus size women, then think again! They’re already part of the plus size women’s clothing, retaining the graceful drape of a regular saree, with added comfort and a contemporary twist.
They also come in an affordable price range. So, you can wear it for the next office party without feeling the pinch.
Skirt The Issue
It’s a myth that plus size skirts look unflattering. You can wear anything from a miniskirt to a long ethnic skirt and still look stylish. Since skirts are so comfortable and can be worn all-round the year, it is recommended that you stock up on them.
You can pick from edgy denim skirts and pair them up with a plain T-shirt and a denim jacket for a day out with friends or choose a long skirt with gold foil embellishments for a more ethnic look. Pair an ethnic plus size skirt with an embellished crop top to complete the look and be prepared to turn heads at social occasions.
For everyday wear, you can choose a casual skirt and team it up with a plain top and a belt to bring attention to the skirt. Get all this and more with plus size skirts at super affordable prices, so that you can keep updating your wardrobe with the latest trends.
Stay At The Top
Plus-size women often find buying tops a challenging issue. Most of them don’t fit well in the right places, or the prints on them look unflattering. If you’re a plus-size woman looking for tops that match your size and style, there are a few things to keep in mind.
The popular mantra for choosing plus size tops is the most obvious one-avoid choosing horizontal stripes as it could make you look wider. It is also better to choose smaller prints over larger ones in case you’re trying to look slimmer.
Don’t be afraid to try new trends. While it is essential to dress for comfort, you’ll never know which trends suit you if you don’t try them. Plus size top options now include sleeveless, cold shoulder, tulip back and more styles, so give them a try.
With the range of plus size women’s clothing becoming wider every day, you can now find something to suit every occasion. If you’re shopping for a tropical vacation, chose a long flowing dress with floral prints.
Pair it up with a thin belt to accentuate your waist and make you look slimmer. If you want to wear dresses to work, you can choose a light pastel-coloured dress or a classic black dress and pair it with a contrasting belt.
Another type of plus size apparel that has been all the rage now is ethnic dresses, complete with all the fun and quirky prints. You can wear these dresses to work or on a day out with friends.
Walking, running, or sports events–nothing but a great pair of jeans or trousers would do for this.
For workwear, choose a shirt with stripes (vertical, of course) and pair them with solid, straight trousers for that professional look. Party later in the night? No problem. Just replace the formal shirt with a shimmery top to see the difference it makes.
With casual wear also accepted in workplaces these days, you can wear a structured shirt with a pair of jeans for comfort with just the right touch of formal. For a casual meet up with friends during the weekend, choose a pair of slightly ripped jeans for those Insta-worthy shots.
Another trendy plus size clothing option are crop tops- but many women hesitate to wear them. If you’re conscious about your midsection, all you have to do is get a great pair of high-waisted jeans and put your worries to rest.
At Shoppers Stop, the brands on display truly understand plus size apparel needs, so go ahead and build your wardrobe full of stylish options with inexpensive, yet trendy plus size clothing options.
