All too often, plus-sized women are stuck in the trap of wearing dark colored clothing. It's true, darker clothing does has a slimming effect on a fuller figure, which is the origin of this fashion principle. However, it is important that your clothing reflect your personality, as well as flatter your shape. Plus-sized women can look good in all colors, so let loose and have fun with your wardrobe.
Mix and match bright colors with solid separates for a vivacious, fun-loving look. Try tops in bright, bold reds or cool turquoise colors and capri pants in hot pink or coral. Get bold and wear a dress in a tropical hue of lemon or orange.
The key to wearing color is to wear it on your best body part. For example, if you have great legs, show them off in a flirty, colorful skirt and wear a darker color on top. Make sure the skirt is the focal point of the outfit.
Keep in mind that bright colors are often in style according to season so your outfits should fluctuate accordingly. For fall and winter months, choose rich, deep colors, like dark red, navy, orange, deep purple, chocolate and, of course, black. When spring and summer hits, lighten up your wardrobe with pinks, yellows, light blues, white, lilac, coral and light browns and tans.
Whatever you choose, jazz up your style with color and show the world your great personality through fashion!
