Fashion Tips – Plus Size Style Tips

animal print trench coatA trench is a must-have item and looks great over skinny jeans, wide leg trousers or a slim skirt.

To reduce emphasizing wide hips, choose pants with flapless pockets, and flat fronts with just enough stretch for added comfort.

The latest way to wear tall boots is with your jeans tucked into them.

Wide belts are back...a new way to wear them: cinched over a jacket or long cardigan for textural interest.

Balance a long denim skirt by wearing a cropped jacket in a neutral shade.

Instantly dress up denim with the contrast of an elegant blouse.

The darker a print's background, the slimmer the look.

Don't mix animal prints! Choose one and mix with other neutrals.

A slim v-neck makes the neck appear longer and is usually very flattering.

Bright colors bring attention to an area - make sure you wear them wisely and only on your most flattering body parts.

If you are petite, 5 foot 3 inches or under, make sure you scale everything down -- smaller prints, pockets, etc. so they don't overpower your figure.

Let ornate mixed-material pieces stand out by wearing them with something unadorned.

A well-cut suit is one of the most flattering outfits you can own. Remember: dark tones create a long line.

Try on all of your favorite clothes. Take notes on how they fit and flatter you. Then shop for similar colors, fabrics, shapes and lengths.

body briefA one-piece body slimmer will create a sleek look under your figure-hugging dresses.

Graphic prints stand out and get a chic edge when paired with leather pants.

Any color worn head to toe in a clean, unbroken line will produce a dynamically slimming effect. Remember, monochromatic doesn't have to mean boring -- mix textures to keep the look interesting, i.e. knits with leather.

If your legs are fuller inside, try a side slit. If your legs are fuller outside, a mid-front or back slit is a better choice.

Fuller figures should select flat knit, fine rib and jersey tops. Choose pants with flapless pockets, flat fronts with just enough stretch for added comfort.

Balance proportions by pairing a floor-sweeping skirt with a cropped cardigan.

For fuller figures, pants should be straight leg or boot cut and the hem should be worn slightly long.

There is never an excuse for panty lines. A thong is a girl's best friend and they even come with tummy control.

Don't worry if separates don't match exactly. Tonal variations are a creative alternative.

Proportion is very important. An oversized handbag makes a great accessory, and a small handbag will make your figure appear larger.

A velvety top in a rich color adds instant elegance to tweed separates.

A shoulder bag tucked quietly under the arm is most flattering.

A monochromatic look adds height and creates a lean silhouette, plus neutral pieces can mix and match.

Stilettos are back and in spite of the discomfort at times, they make your legs look like a million dollars. Just do not, ever, ever wear white stilettos. The fashion police are there for a reason and this is it.

A skinny mesh scarf is great worn as a belt...wear two or three together for added interest.

A silver sweater plays up elegant metallic lace or trim on jeans.

A tall boot is a key buy and works well paired with long flowy dresses and skirts or jeans.

Make sure that each time you buy a new bra, you are properly fitted with the help of a trained sales associate. Wearing a properly fitted bra makes you look great and you will feel much more comfortable.

lacy camisoleShow off the lavish embroidery on your lingerie: let it peek out under a t-shirt or sweater.

Balance a volumized top with a fitted bottom, such as slim leggings and sleek boots.

Go for the contrast of white and black; then add pretty accessories to soften the look.
