Many of you may still be freezing from the cold weather that is still outside. You may not even want to talk about spring right now, but believe it or not, it is only a short time away. This is the time to begin thinking about what you will wear in the spring; especially if you are full-figured woman. As with anything in the fashion world, nothing is ever new. Most trends are just reinvented, repeated or reprocessed from the past. It is time to get excited about the upcoming season and the current trends; some of which you may already have in your closet.
Many people are already in the planning stage when it comes to their wardrobe. Spring is the time when you will take off the layers of clothing you wore in the winter months to show off your body that has been concealed underneath for so long. So I encourage you to start shopping right away. You can incorporate some of these suggestions below to acquire your spring outfits.
1. The Crop top
Yes, that's what you heard. Crop Tops, honey! Many people think that crop tops are only for women with thin waists. Plus-sized women with a little thickness in their midsections are not exempt. You can rock the crop top as well and even surprise yourself. You better believe that and do not let anyone tell you differently. You just have to know how to wear it. You do not have to show your whole midriff, but you can reveal a little belly skin at the upper part of your waistline and be still relaxed and confident. How? You can wear a high-waist bottom such as a shorts, pair of pants or skirt. You seriously will not go wrong with this. If you do not feel comfortable this way, then you can add a tank top below the crop top and call it a day.
2. All White Colors
Yes, from your head to your toe in white. The all-white look is taking its correct place in the fashion world and designers like Vera Wang and Roberto Cavalli are adding this to their spring collection. In the recent past, we have seen an overload of bright neon and blocked colored styles; so much so that I think we have forgotten how nice and crisp we can look in a white ensemble. Do not think about what the fashion trend critiques think. You can look absolutely amazing in white too even if you are a plus-size.
3. Appealing Peplum
Directly from the 1980s comes the peplum look. It has been around for several months, but fits in nicely with the spring season. From peplum tops to peplum skirts, you can look fabulous. It brings out the chicness in you and for a plus-sized woman; it hides those curves that you do not want seen. You can wear the peplum dress in a solid color or in a colorful animal print. You have varied choices because this piece will always be appealing no matter what.
4. Floral, Ruffles and Stripes
Floral designs are always going to be associated with spring. It gives you a girly feeling and a feminine look. For the plus-size woman, you can wear floral in a pant suit or a blazer. Floral is a definite must-have for spring. Stripes are going to be the in-thing for the year year of 2013. You can wear stripes in dresses, rompers, tops, skirts and blazers. They help to give the impression of a trimmer you and will give your body its balanced appearance. During the 1980s, it was somewhat fashionable to dress in blocks of color. Well, you can bet that it is back in the fashion rotation. Dressing in blocks of color will preclude anyone from concentrating on just one section of your body. However, your color block outfit should depend on the kind of weather you are dealing with.
Last, but not least, you should expect that plus size retailers will overwork ruffles this spring. I personally love ruffled tops and a playful ruffled hemmed dress, so I will be enthusiastic about sewing some new pieces at good prices. These are the trends to expect this spring 2013. With these, you will remain stylish and current.
