As a plus-size woman, dressing well can be quite a challenge. However, with the proper tools and knowledge, you too can learn to elevate your look. Here are some tips to help you elevate your look as a plus-size woman!
1. Find Your Style
The first step is finding what works for you. As a plus-size woman, it’s important to dress in ways that flatter your shape without hiding it or making yourself uncomfortable. If wearing pencil skirts all the time makes you feel stuffed into clothing then stick to skater skirts or A-line skirts instead. There are plenty of options out there that will make you feel good about how you look while still being comfortable along the way!
To elevate the look, you’ll need a few key pieces that will allow you to dress up or down. A simple black sheath is an ideal foundation for every plus-size woman’s wardrobe because the clean lines and beautiful tailoring make it instantly dressy. An open cardigan can be worn on top of a sleeveless dress for a more office-friendly look, but also looks great over a tank with a pair of jeans. To elevate an otherwise casual outfit, throw on a blazer and some pumps and your look goes from Cute Casual to Chic Business in seconds flat!
1. Fit is Everything!
Many plus-size women find that buying clothes can be a complete nightmare. As a plus-size woman, you know the frustration of trying on what you think is your size only to discover it’s too small or too big. To elevate your look and elevate your style, it’s important to make sure everything fits you right when you try it on in the store. If one part of an outfit doesn’t fit right and makes you look weird then chances are another piece won’t either and together they’ll just add up to a dowdy overall effect!
It can be tempting to buy something that fits okay because we have struggles finding anything we like and that fits but keep in mind that making a compromise on the fit and style will not make you happy and the pieces will stay unworn in your wardrobe forever.
3. Invest in Alterations
If you’ve got a good fit on your clothes but still feel they could elevate their look more, take them to the tailor! Whether it’s shortening shirt sleeves or letting out a hemline, alterations are worth every penny. A simple seamstress can elevate your look for between 30–100 EUR depending on how major your alterations are. You’ll find that the right alterations will elevate any piece of clothing to new heights.
4. Accessories are Key!
No matter what kind of outfit you’re wearing, accessories are key to elevate any simple outfit into something unique and eye-catching! A pair of statement earrings or an oversized handbag is all you need to create some extra interest.
5. Brands work wonder.
As a plus-size woman, it can feel hard to elevate your look because fashion is often made for smaller women and is not produced in our sizes. However, many designers now create lines specifically for plus-size women that elevate your look and elevate your fashion sense at the same time! There are plenty of great companies out there that elevate your style with pieces that flatter you and make you feel good about yourself. Don’t hesitate to try different looks out — you will be amazed!
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on your clothes.
It’s no secret that the fashion industry is notorious for being wasteful. Every year, over 700 million garments are sent to landfills. This not only hurts our environment but also contributes to a growing mountain of clothes in people’s closets. We live in an era where recycling has become popular and sustainable living is key- which makes second-hand clothing all the more important, as it provides both style inspiration and saves tons of energy by reusing materials that would have otherwise been thrown away or recycled into other items like paper or plastic containers. So whether you want to be environmentally conscious or just look good on Instagram (or both!), there’s never been a better time than now to buy used!s.
You need to be aware of what fits your silhouette.
We all know that we should dress for our body type and not to accommodate the trends. However, it is also important to be aware of what fits your silhouette because you don’t want a style that doesn’t look flattering on your figure. There are plenty of ways to find out which styles will work best with your shape by consulting an image expert or taking measurements at home. Which types of dresses do you like? Do they make you feel more confident? Which hairstyle suits your face shape? You should ask yourself these questions and find out which styles elevate your look the most.
The most important advice: Invest in yourself.
Styling should not be a guessing game for you, this crucial mistake is costing you a lot of money, time but also your confidence. Working with an image consultant or stylist is making an impact for your entire life. They elevate your look and elevate your self-confidence. You will feel beautiful outside and inside. We all have to take care of ourselves, this is the right moment for you to invest once into a professional service but have a lifetime experience.
