Casual Plus Size Clothing for Summer Travel

Summer is almost here, and many folks are already busy making their plans for this season’s vacation. While taking some time off is always enjoyable, planning and packing can be stressful. Here are some tips for preparing a suitcase full of casual plus size clothing for summer travel.

Lightweight: Summer style should be light, cool, and relaxed – especially when you are on vacation! So bring light cotton, linen, and jersey tops that won’t weigh you down. This will also help you with the second tip…

Pack Light: Traveling is much easier when you make an effort to pack light. This is easy if you bring a few plus size separates that can be mixed and matched to create several outfits. For example, bring a skirt to wear with some of your casual tops. Pack a dressy cover-up that matches one of your tops and now you’ve created a formal outfit – and you only had to pack one extra piece!

Pack Easy: Pack items that are easy to launder and don’t require ironing. That way you won’t be stuck searching for an iron in your hotel room. Casual plus size clothing that is easy to care for also tends to be lightweight, so you can check off the second tip, too.

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!

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.
