Fashion Tips for Plus Girls for Fall/Winter 2014

The following is from guest author Chiara Solloa.

Fall/Winter is here! I am so excited about all the trends for this season.  I chose 3 trends to focus on that are all different

The Great Outdoors

This trend is all about cozying up to a fire and enjoying the outdoors. Cable knit & Argyle sweaters make a statement paired with skinny jeans and riding boots. A great DIY for this look is dress up a simple plaid by embellishing it up with some stones or beadwork. I also love all native prints for this look, think south western printed cardigans and finish your look off with the it bag for fall the suede fringe bag. Denim jackets and beanies give this look a cool girl attitude, but stick with a clean dark slimming denim for your bottoms. Don’t be afraid to layer, mix up solids, patterns and texture. You can elongate your shape by showing off your neckline with a cowl, scoop or v-neck.

Retro 

Many designers paid homage to the mod style of the 60’s with Mini-skirts, trapeze dresses, optical patterns, Leather coats, Mary-Janes, and patent knee high boots. If you tend to be heavier on the top than your bottom a Trapeze style dress is a great way to draw attention to your legs. The mod trend also offers up some great patterns in trippy styles that can actually create and optical illusion, look for patterns that start larger from the outside of your waist and get smaller towards your center hence creating the look of a smaller waist. This style is all about vintage colors and chunky heels.

Luxurious Textures

This trend is all about textile. Get glammed up in velvets, lace, silk blouses, emerald colors, and animal prints. Caplets are a very chic way to cover up larger arms in style pair this look with a silk tie front blouse and a pencil skirt for a femme fatale look A sexy way to create and elongated torso is to opt for v-neck or drape front blouses. Full long ball gown skirts worn high waisted at the narrowest part of your waist and paired with a turtleneck creates an elegant holiday look. Define your waist with belts, cinchers, & empire silhouettes.
