The Hottest Autumn Trends in Plus-Sized Fashion
Goodbye spring florals and summer dresses, Autumn is here! Autumn fashion is layers, layers, and more layers, but you don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth. This year’s runway saw several trends - from bright and bold prints to Western nostalgia - that flatter every body type. Plus-sized ladies will especially appreciate how they can flaunt their curves while rocking this season’s most eye-catching styles.
The weather is getting colder, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sizzle in these Autumn 2018 fashion essentials:
The rugged military look is all the rage this autumn. An army green coat or olive bomber jacket is the perfect accent piece to a casual outfit. Pair this with a flowy top and dark skinny jeans for an easy ensemble, or keep it feminine with a figure-flattering little black dress. Don’t forget - no military-inspired look is complete without the right pair of ankle boots! You’ll look and feel ready to take on the world.
Tough as Leather
Still not ready to let go of your florals and pastels? No problem. A moto jacket adds the right amount of edge to any outfit. Balance out a tight leather skirt with some lighter fabrics like chiffon for a vibe that’s equal parts rock and chic. Leather doesn’t have to be all dark and gothic either, they can come in all sorts of colors! Experiment with bolder hues that will make the rest of your outfit pop.
The mid-length hemline (which falls between your knees and your ankle) is a must-have for any fashion-forward lady. It’s a universally-flattering versatile style you can wear at the office, a sophisticated dinner, or even a romantic date night. Pair a patterned midi skirt with an off-the-shoulder top and smart heels, and you’re ready to go from day to night in a flash. Worried about your waist? There are wrap midi dresses with great silhouettes that you’re sure to love.
Welcome to the Jungle
Unleash your inner sexy beast with eye-catching animal prints. Leopard print coats are back in style, ladies, but now the entire animal kingdom is up for the ride. Snakeskin, zebra and tiger stripes, and of course, the classic leopard spots (on everything from coats to bags to skirts to stockings) will make you go wild. It’s one of the more daring trends, but don’t let its boldness scare you off. Build off your current wardrobe, but throw in a cheeky snakeskin clutch for some texture. Ready to go bigger? A leopard print dress will show off your gorgeous curves and is sexy no matter the season.
Prints, Patterns, Perfection
A monochromatic look is timeless and easy, but 2018 is the year should mix it up and experiment. A print is sure to make any outfit more interesting and can spell the difference between an unremarkable outfit and a fresh, modern one. A patterned jumpsuit and a stylish pair of heels takes less than five minutes to throw together but looks elegant and trendy. Stay away from small prints and opt for large, busy ones to compliment your shape. A geometric pattern is gorgeous on literally everybody; balance it out with simple, solid-color accessories for a fun yet tasteful look.
The fashion industry is finally starting to realize that plus-sized fashions don’t have to be drab, outdated, and shapeless. If you’re looking to update your wardrobe with some fun pieces and crazy new styles, you won’t want to miss out on this year’s hottest autumn fashion trends.
