How to Accessorize This Season’s Biggest Trends
When you’re a curvy girl, accessories are your best friend! This is the one area of plus size fashion that every plus size woman can buy directly from the high street and know that their range of on-trend handbags, baubles and shoes will not only fit her, they’ll also look fabulous!
Here’s a quick plus size guide to choosing and wearing accessories:
Choose Statement Jewellery
Oversized statement jewellery looks fantastic on plus sized women, as you provide a bigger and better canvas to really show it off! Avoid smaller and more delicate pieces that could get lost on you, and instead choose pieces that nod to this season’s hottest trends and make them as big and bold as possible. Chokers are big news for 2017, as are oversized chandelier earrings. If you’re petite then you could also look for long line pendants that will draw attention down your body, creating the illusion of length. Pineapples are a huge motif this season, so look for a pineapple pendant to really show off your style credentials. There’s no need to over-accessorise though. Pick just one key high-impact statement piece, and wear it with style.
Bring it in With a Belt
Want to create the illusion of an hour glass figure or really show off your curves? You need to cinch in your waist with a belt! Skinny belts in bright rainbow shades are popular this season, but you may find that wider waist belts will be more flattering, and suit your style and shape better. Struggling to find a belt to fit? Don’t be disheartened! There are endless options for buying plus size fashion online and many of these specialise in making accessories for the fuller figured gal, so just widen your search and you’ll soon find exactly what you’re looking for! Don’t discard fabric belts or obi belts either: these can look very stylish, often come up bigger than their leather counterparts, and can service double-duty as hair bands or neck scarves, meaning you’re getting three accessories for the price of one!
Pick the Perfect Handbag
Clutch bags and shoulder bags are having a resurgence this season, and thanks to the athleisure trends the backpack is back as a must-have fashion accessory. Choosing the right handbag really is the easiest way you can inject new season style into your outfit. Plus size girls should be weary of carrying a bag that is too small though, as these can get lost in your outfit and don’t always flatter your frame. Instead opt for a slightly oversized design that will stand out and make a statement. Again, choosing your plus size fashion online could be the perfect answer here, if you feel that high street designs simply aren’t big enough to make a style statement when worn against your body: the key is to try hundreds of styles until you find the one that feels right for you.
