Looking Great in Summer Plus Size Dresses
It seems that a lot of plus size women have a hard time feeling comfortable in plus size dresses. They may fear that, without layering or using multiple pieces, they will look too big or the dress will be unflattering. But it is time to get rid of those nasty thoughts and embrace the beauty of dresses. No matter what your body shape, you can look great in dresses during the upcoming season.
The fear that so many women have – that dresses will be unflattering – may be caused by old clothing designers that did not create dresses in flattering cuts for plus size ladies. Those days are gone, thankfully, and modern designers know how to dress up your curves and give you the confidence you deserve.
Case in point: the Black Tunic Jersey Dress. The dress is 100% jersey, so you know it will be comfortable to wear. It is also quite simple; another excellent feature of plus size dresses. If you want to be able to take your dress from casual to formal, choose a simple garment that can be accessorized to fit the occasion.
Heading out for dinner and drinks with friends? A simple summer dress with some colorful chunky jewelry is cute, flattering, and easy plus size clothing.
Going out for a formal evening? Put on a set of heels, wear fine jewelry, and grab a matching clutch. The same dress can become the center of a formal ensemble by changes the details of your outfit just a bit.
Of course, these suggestions work with a simple, solid colored dress. You can also create a gorgeous look with a boldly printed dress that grabs attention and gives you a fantastic look. Instead of being constrained by so-called plus size clothing rules and fashion do’s and don’t’s, create your own personal style. You will look and feel better, your style will be authentically your own, and you can take confidence in your appearance every time you leave the house.
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
