Spring Fatshion Trends
Spring is just around the corner and I’ve been looking at plus-size catalogs and online retailers trying to find some new items to spruce up my closet as the weather starts to turn milder. During my window shopping, several reoccurring themes have popped up which are targeted to be trends for the upcoming season.
1. Floral everywhere
I know, I know, florals have been a staple of plus-sizes since forever, but it’s really exploded this year and moved beyond blouses, going to floral print sneakers and jeans.
Proof that the 1980s rock star inspiration has not gotten stale yet, fringe has returned, from the subtle —
— to the bold.
3. Bright colors
Loud pops of color were around last year, but now the trend has grown to more shades and styles which are work-friendly for business-casual offices.
When I think of peplum, I picture the power suits from the 80s. But now it’s crossed over into more casual fashion.
It looks like 2013 is shaping up to be a little bolder, brighter and more rebellious when it comes to big fashion. These styles aren’t going to fit everyone’s taste or budget, and that’s OK. Trends come and go and, ultimately, we know what we like and what works for us. Mainstream plus-size fashion still has a long way to go in embracing extended sizing and letting go of the bling and the bedazzle. What do you wish to see this spring and summer when it comes to clothing?
