The Stigma of Plus Size Clothing

There is no doubt that the fashion industry has embraced plus size clothing during the last several years. It was once taboo to produce a plus size line, but now designers are racing to create their own. More and more women are also developing their own personal styles and enjoying the new world of fashion that has been opened to them. Sadly, there is still a bit of stigma around the term “plus size” that can affect some women.

Separating women into the “normal” and “plus” sized categories seems unnecessary to some folks. After all, can’t all of the sizes just be considered normal? Although this is one argument, more women are concerned about the advent of plus sizes for younger children. It could be difficult for a 10, 11, or 12 year old girl to shop in the plus size section and then be teased or singled out by her friends.

Obviously, debates of this nature are complex and multi-faceted. What is truly important is that, regardless of what they are called, designers continue to create stylish, flattering clothing for women of all sizes. For now, that means plus size clothing. If that title changes at some point, hopefully it will be in response to the greater acceptance by society of women of all shapes and sizes.

Adding Spring Color to Your Office Plus Size Clothing

Spring is officially here, with its bright, beautiful colors and warm, breezy weather.  There’s so much to love about this delightful season!  And part of it is the lighter, cooler, more colorful fashion options.  Even when you are working indoors during the sunny spring days, you can still bring a splash of spring color to your office plus size clothing.

Colorful Tops. You might want to keep to more conservative colors at the office, depending on the dress code and general setting of the workplace.  But even in a very professional setting, you can use colorful, yet dress, blouses and jackets to update your outfits for spring.  Try plus size tunics in light greens, subtle pinks, and calm blues.  Depending on the season you certainly can add some edgy colors.  For example some tasteful shades of reds and pinks during the Valentines Day’s celebration.  When July 4th arrives spark up your clothing colleciton with some red, white and blue.  You can add a chain three strand necklace with r-w-b or a sash or scarf.  Even more simple is a handbag.  You can twist red, white and blue ribbons for liberty.

Spring Accessories. Colorful accessories help you add the feel of Spring to your outfit in an understated, but still gorgeous, way.  Beaded necklaces and bracelets in bright colors look fantastic.  Or use a bright belt to break up darker colors in your office plus size clothing.  Usually, muted or understated colors are the best.  Some choices for color accents might be turquoise, paisley, coral, honey bee yellow and pastel pink.  Of course adding any gold jewelry to these color combinations will look amazing.

Do you have any great ideas for adding Spring color to your office wardrobe?  Any interesting online stores that offer a wonderful selection of inexpensive jewelry?  We love to here from our readers so like us know!

Casual Plus Size Clothing for Holiday Travel

Happy Holidays from Generous Fashions!

All around the world, thousands of people are getting ready for their holiday travel plans.  By train, plane, and car, relatives travel hundreds of miles to be together with their family during this special season.  The holidays are an exciting and memorable time for you to relax with your friends and relatives.  But before you can get to that relaxing time, you may run into a stressful task: packing for your trip.  What casual plus size clothing is best to bring along for holiday travel?

Keep It Simple

Over-packing is not a good thing; it will leave you stressed before, during, and after your trip.  Keeping your travel attire simple and stylish is ideal.  Plus size separates will help you do that.  Bring a few basic bottoms – your most comfortable pants and skirts – and mix and match them with some simple separates.  With just a few tops and bottoms, you can create several great outfits for your trip.   Pack some solid color pants (or 1-skirt).  Mostly likely you will have a pair of black pants, if not,  you should go ahead and purchase a pair.  Black pants as you know will go with everything and if you get a stain its easy to wash.  If you also have a navy pair of pants that is good too.  Try to say away from white color tops and pants while on vacation, unless you know you can get them cleaned.

Keep It Low-Maintenance

You don’t want to spend your whole holiday laundering and ironing finicky garments.  If you pack wrinkle resistant and wrinkle free items, you will be much more relaxed during your time with family.  Less time ironing means more time with the people you love, which is always a good thing.

Don’t let your clothing become an obstacle to a great holiday trip.  Pack simple, low-maintenance casual plus size clothing.  You’re sure to have a lovely holiday!

Accessorizing Your Office Plus Size Clothing

Professional attire does not have to be boring, bland, and plain.  With some simple touches, you can really dress up your office plus size clothing.  Of course, good taste is important when you are dressing for a professional environment.  But with some simple, classic accessories, you can always look fantastic around the office.

Simple chain bracelets are fabulous accessories.  They have it all: classic, simple, and stylish.  Another great choice is bangles.  Depending on your office dress code, you might be able to add some more colorful bracelets too.

Chain watches look fabulous with office plus size clothing.  A watch is the perfect classy touch to give you a professional look.  Coordinating a gold or silver watch with a chain necklace or bracelet looks both stylish and workplace appropriate.

Plus Size Clothing in Neutral Colors

I was recently reading an interesting blog post about how neutral colors were “in” for this winter. I can’t claim to be a fashion expert, but it seems like a good trend to me. After all, neutral colors are perfect for layering, which is a must when it comes to winter fashion.

Black has become the stereotypical plus size clothing color, but that’s because it is a great neutral. It’s easy to match lots of nice colors with a black tank top, dress, skirt, or pant. I love that a pair of black slacks can work great with both a casual and formal outfit. I can run errands in a tunic blouse with black pants, then change into a dressy jacket and leave the pants. They’re so versatile!

If you are looking for new designs in middle age plus size clothing for women, I definitely recommend picking up some styles of neutral colors. They are perfect for layering and will look good year round. But don’t be afraid to go with colorful outfits too. Instead of limiting yourself to just one color or style, try out some new casual plus size clothing. You’ll be happy you did!
