Sure, it seems as though winter might never end. But with an eye towards warmer days, we’re rounding up this spring’s fashion trends straight from the runway. Time to shed off those extra layers and welcome a little sun! Here’s what designers are offering for upcoming spring plus size fashion:
Get ready for a wide selection of tops, dresses, and accessories in a rich range of pastel colors. From pink to green, designers across the board are toning down jeweled tones and releasing clothing items in pastel hues. While some pastel shades might toe the Easter egg line too closely, others are beautifully reminiscent of spring flowers we’re desperately missing right now. Our advice is to wear pastels hues sparingly so you don’t overwhelm your outfit with too much color.
We’re not talking about your grandmother’s lace tablecloth, we’re seeing hints of sophisticated lace highlighting outfits and adding a subtle flair of feminine charm perfect for warmer weather. These cotton lace pants strike the perfect balance between mature style and sweet details. Worn with a colored button down or perfectly draped top, these pants are both office appropriate and weekend friendly. Test the quality of the lace before making your purchase—check to see if the lace is unraveling, fraying, or is in generally worn shape. Spice up your lingerie wardrobe with a Leading Lady lace bra that fits great and is on-trend this spring.
We’re not talking about the trapeze-style swing dress or even the high-low hemline that was popular in years past. This year, we’re seeing a lot of front-view asymmetrical hemlines on dresses and skirts that put a fun, fearless edge into your wardrobe. Paired with heels, these hemlines are perfect for a night out. Try to stick to neutral solids so the design doesn’t get lost in a sea of color or patterns.
Flared dresses and skirts are making a splash this spring and summer. Skater-style skirts and dresses suit curves of all sizes beautifully because they move with your body without pushing the puffy limits of poodle skirts in the past. Midi length dresses (which fall typically somewhere below the knees to the mid-calf) are cropping up in different stores. Suited for both the office and a night out, this soft knit gray option is perfect for both day and nighttime wear. Pair with a sophisticated blazer (in a pastel shade) and ankle sandals and you’ve found your favorite casual spring look.
Happy shopping, curvy fashionistas!
