Plus sized style tips a la me....

Okay, so here’s what this month’s Vogue India says about the latest trends.

Red, Green, Orange, Yellow, Pink, Blue just pick a color you like, forget blacks and nudes, it’s time to bring out the colors! But just to make it a lil’ fun, add some black and play it up with accessories in neutral shades.

Longer skirts are back. Knee-length and below, good news if you don’t have those lean looking perfect legs.Trousers, tapered; flat fronted or pleated, more importantly peg trousers, which I think look very hot on plus sized women.

Trend India : Wear a kurta and add a belt; therefore creating the belted kurta, gives your regular kurta a new edge.

I love prints so it doesn’t really matter to me what the gurus of fashion have to say about it, I’m gonna keep wearing them as often as I like. Also, what’s in is the masculine look, I’m not a big fan of this but anyways.

So I did a lil’ style sheet for us plus sized girls keeping in mind the words from the fashion bible.

Printed Pants Printed Bag Printed Scarf

Printed peg trousers, pleated at the waistline creates a gentle curve around the hips and camouflages any unnecessary bulges. Simply tuck in the top and add a long necklace to visually reduce the broadness around the bust.

Nude Accessories

Cropped pants with flowy top belted at the waist helps create a slimmer silhouette. Add those neutral accessories to stay in trend and be ever stylish.

Skirts, worn mid-waist or a little higher with a tucked in top hides those bulges and makes you look slimmer and feminine. Add that long necklace and see the difference yourself.

Kurta with straight pants and just when you start to think what's so stylish about this, add that belt around the waist and adore the look!
