Be aware of what trends translate well to plus-sizes and which ones do not. There is nothing worse than trying to keep up with the latest trends as a plus-size woman and then ending up with an unflattering style, feeling downright uncomfortable. Here are some things to keep in mind when translating trends:
* Dresses with a straight style are a don't for plus-sizes. Wrap, empire or A-line is best.
* Skinny jeans and pants only work on plus-sizes when they don't taper at the bottom, maintain a straight line from waist to ankle and are worn with long, tunic-style tops.
* Stay away from belly-baring tops. You can love your curves and flaunt them, but you still need to be classy and realistic about the most flattering way to show off your full-figured body. Layer belly-baring tops with longer tanks underneath instead.
