Seems like it was just last week when we were welcoming in the summer.
Now we are welcoming in the new school year.
What’s hot in Plus Size Fashion this Back to School Season?
#PlusSize Back To School Fashion Trends #backtoschool
Here are our top 5 trends this year, suitable for about any age.
1. The sneaker
It’s not just your usual run of the mill big label sneaker.
This fall the sneaker is a fashion statement in itself.
These sneakers have designs, decorations and embellishments. Some of these sneakers have a heel, wedge or platform.
Plus size tip- wear your sneaker with balance to the entire body. If you opt for a flat heeled sneaker, balance the look out with a capri length or ankle length pant. Check the mirror to see what we mean.
2. Boyfriend style/distressed denim
Denim jeans may never go out of style. They just seem to get updated.
This year we are entering back in the distressed and relaxed looks. The distressed look comes in about all of the major jean styles.
Tip- The more relaxed the jean, the better a plus size will usually look with some kind of a heel.
3. A Really Cool Backpack
Backpacks are back as handbags for mom as well. Backpacks for kids are more fun with designs than they have been in the past. This is for all ages going back to school
Tip: Opt for a large backpack rather than a small one. A small backpack can make you look larger.
4. Plaids are back
We are assuming that’s a good thing.
Tip: Work with a slenderizing print that draws the eye up and down rather than side to side. A bolder or darker vertical line can actually slim us.
5. The cardigan
Some years are good for the cardigan and some years you just don’t see anyone wearing them.
The cardigan is back this year. The cardigans are no longer the frumpy heavy knit ones (hooray!). The cardigans of the 2014 back to school season are made from interesting fabrics such as lace. They also have more flattering and flowing cuts on the hem.
Tip: Avoid wearing a cardigan over a clingy bottom or thick top as this will create bulk.
