Color Themes For Plus Size Clothing For Travel

If you have trouble figuring out what clothes to bring with you when you travel, trust me, you are not alone. Packing can be frustrating, especially if you arrive at your destination just to realize you wish you had brought a different blouse or dress with you. But if you take some time to plan out your outfits before you start filling up the suitcase, you’ll find that packing doesn’t have to be all that difficult.

I like to choose a color theme for my plus size travel clothing. That doesn’t mean that I’ll be wearing the same outfit day in and out. But it does mean that I can bring a few easy to match bottoms, like some black or khaki pants, and them combine them with several different tops. I love blue and green, so I usually stick to them when I travel. With a couple of colorful tank tops, blouses, and jackets, I’m all set for a great vacation!

Before you start packing for your next trip, take a look through your closet and see what color themes you could go with. It’s always best to choose separates that will combine with lots of different plus size clothing. And if you want to get some nice new pants or tops for your next trip, check out plus size women’s clothing stores online; they have lots of great options and will deliver your new clothes right to your home.

Finding Plus Size Pants That Work For You

I like to wear skirts to work sometimes, but in general, I show up in pants. For me, they just feel much more comfortable. In the past I had trouble finding pants that would compliment my pear shaped body, but I haven’t given up and I’ve been able to find some great fits. But, that’s not to say that it will be a breeze to choose a nice pair of pants. It all depends on your body shape and what style you prefer.

For my body, I needed something with plenty of room in the back, but that wouldn’t look like it had lots of excess fabric. Most days you can find me in a pair of black pants; I feel that they give me a slimmer, more elongated look. But that’s not to say that other colors are wrong for curvy women, you just have to know how to coordinate your outfit. White pants with a nice tank top and cover up look great.

Plus size clothing coordinates well with pants; they are an easy bottom to use as a basis for a gorgeous outfit. I’m always on the lookout for a new jacket or blouse that I can put with my black or white pants to make a fun new look. I love that plus size women’s clothing is so versatile. You never have to be limited to just one style.

Plus Size Women’s Clothing Fabrics and Prints

I recently went shopping with some friends and was thrilled to find lots of clothing in my size. It wasn’t hard at all to put together a cute new outfit. But shopping got me thinking about all the different fabrics and prints designers use. Which are best for plus size clothing? Here are some basic tips.

The huge no-no for fabrics is anything obviously clingy. I want to show off my curves, but clingy clothes grab onto my problem places all too easily. Heavier fabrics like cotton and canvas are definitely a good option. As far as prints go, they need to be proportional; big prints are OK, but there is such a thing as too big too. Stripes can be work great, horizontal or vertical. But you need to know your body and choose styles that match; horizontal stripes are best on pear shaped women who want to draw attention to their top half.

I like having lots of options, and I don’t believe in limited my wardrobe to just a couple fabrics or prints. You should try out lots of different styles and find what looks and feels good for you. Thanks to the Internet, it’s really easy to shop for plus size clothing. Designers that work exclusively with plus size women’s clothing have done a great job creating comfortable and flattering outfits.
