Some of the autumn color trends are being carried into 2013. Many designers are featuring prints in light bright and dark edgier colors, floral patterns and bright colors that are always popular for tops.
We often hear that clothes should fit perfectly. This is thought to be one of the most important fashion rules. But for the 2013 season some designers are telling us to forget about any rules and start experimenting in a big way. And they really mean it. Big and oversize looks are going to be cool this year! Everything from caftans to wide trousers to big skirts will be filling our wardrobes and all you will need is a couple of ideas on how to make this look work for you.
Your wallet is probably as weary and tired as you are after the Holidays, so here are some great plus size fashion ensembles all for under $100.
Pair up the Fluttery Handkerchief Hem Skirt and the Scoop neck top with Butterfly sleeves and waist band. A really dressed up look and all in comfy, cozy, easy care jersey.
The classic Black Tunic Jersey Dress is a plus size clothes closet staple. It is elegant on its own or put some excitement in your look with The Dramatic Shawl and you are ready for a night out. Save on dry cleaning – both of these items can be hand-washed.
Who can resist a black skirt? Especially when it is called a Forgiving Stretchy Skirt – it is doubly irresistible. Naturally, everything co-ordinates beautifully with black, especially the lace tunic we are showing. It is not like other caftan tops – it has 10% stretch fabric and brocade in the front and back for a classic yet comfortable look.
OK – This one ensemble is .95 cents over $100. but it is so worth it. An elegant zippered tunic with a sequined neckline paired up with the ultimate slimming plus size fashion pants. You will love the hidden side zipper for a tailored look and better fit. These cotton pants and the beautiful light fabric of the tunic will easily take you from winter to spring/summer.
Here is a perky outfit that is equally as stylish as it is practical. The Kimono sleeve tunic is a retro-inspired choice, covered in a print that you’ll love with light or dark pants. This is a cute look that carries you from winter right through the year. The pants are in a fabulous blend of cotton, linen and rami (with 5% lycra) – a combination that makes it a popular choice for plus size clothes as it allows stretch in the hips, thighs and seat. As if these pants were not comfortable enough, the fabric is washed and softened before it is cut and sewn! Visit Generous Fashions to see what is new for 2013!
Stephen, Your Designer
“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
