Plus Size Clothing For Your Spring Getaway
After some chilly weather, spring has finally arrived. For many folks, that means you will be making travel plans to get out and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of the season. Of course, you will want to bring along some lovely plus size clothing – both dressy and casual – to wear as you enjoy your spring getaway. But is it really possible to pack light while still bringing everything you need to create several lovely outfits?
More and more airlines are imposing strict weight limits on luggage, so you will have to keep your casual plus size clothing to a minimum in order to get in under the limit. Use the following tips to pack the perfect suitcase for your trip.
Mix and Match
The most important rule for packing light is bringing mix and match plus size separates with you. If you pack several items that only work with one specific outfit, you will quickly run out of space in your luggage. Tunic tops that can be both dressy and casual, comfortable shoes that are great for walking but also dressy enough for a night out, and versatile accessories that can go with any outfit are a few essentials.
Lightweight Fabrics Are Best
When traveling during the spring and summer, you are not very likely to need sweaters or coats. They will take up too much space in your luggage and you probably won’t ever wear them. So bring spring garments made from lightweight fabrics. They are easier to wash and iron, take up less space, weigh less in your bag, and look great for the season.
Even if you aren’t flying and don’t have a specific weight limit imposed on your luggage, it is still smart to pack light. If you take some time to plan your packing techniques, you can make the perfect suitcase with a variety of plus size clothing outfits without having to bring an entire fleet of luggage.
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
