Fall is here and there’s no better time to add to your existing wardrobe or play with your style. Most stores have gotten rid of their summer inventory and filled their shelves with this fall’s hottest trends. This season’s trends are varied and appeal to a wide range of tastes. Best of all, they aren’t size restrictive. There’s no wondering if you’re too curvy to pull off a certain style.
Here’s a list of five of the hottest trends for fall and how plus size women can wear them.
Bright & Bold Colors
Besides the traditional fall browns, dark greens, grays and purples, you’ll being seeing a lot of bright colors.From bright yellow to burnt orange to red, the fall color palette has something for everyone.
If you’re more conservative when it comes to wearing colors, you can incorporate pops of color into your wardrobe through accessories, shoes and outerwear. If your style is a little more daring, try some colored bottoms on for size.
Animal prints are still going strong this. You’ll find leopard, zebra and snakeskin prints on everything from dresses to handbags. Stores like Lane Bryant, Neiman Marcus and Torrid all have a selection of figure flattering animal prints for curvy women.
It’s easy to go overboard with animal prints, so a good rule of thumb is to limit prints to one piece of clothing or accessory. If you’re going to wear a leopard print dress, keep your accessories and shoes simple.If you want to add some drama to a monochromatic outfit use animal print accessories.
The use of lace is another to carry-over from spring/summer. The colors are darker and richer, with lots of purples, blues and blacks, but the result is still ultra feminine.
There’s really no way to go wrong with lace. It goes from day to night with ease. A lace camisole worn under a suit adds a feminine touch to your work attire and a lace cardigan or shrug quickly dresses up a casual outfit. A blazer can be paired with a lace dress for work then removed for a night out.
The Color Red
Red is one the hottest colors this fall. It’s timeless and best of all seasonless. It’s also a color that evokes strong emotions and draws attention to the wearer, so it’s definitely not for everyone.
If you love bold colors or just want to incorporate a little color into your wardrobe, there’s no better choice than red. You can put your best foot forward in a pair of red pumps, keep it casual in red denim, or command attention at work in a red power suit.
Capes & Ponchos
Capes and ponchos are another big trend this fall. Not only are they attractive, they’re also perfect for chilly fall weather. Nordstrom and Macys have a wonderful and varied selection of capes and ponchos currently in stock and on sale.
The great thing about capes and ponchos are that they can be worn with almost everything. You have lightweight ponchos that can be worn inside and out and heavyweight capes that can easily replace a jacket or coat. They can be paired with jeans or skirts and they can be worn to work or out to dinner. Your options are truly limitless.
