Fashion Tips for the Plus Size Woman and Where to Find Affordable Womens Clothing Online in Melbourne

Whether you want your clothes to showcase your curves or slim you down, there are some things you can do as a plus size woman to make sure that everything you wear flatters your body and makes you feel as great as you look. Here are a few tips for putting together outfits that will have you looking your best all week long.

Dress Monochromatically

The term “monochromatic” refers to wearing the same colour in different shades or colours that have the same value (light, medium, or dark). For example, you could wear black pants with a dark blue top, or a few different shades of brown. It’s hard to go wrong with this look, and it’s easy to put together office-friendly outfits that flatter every body type. Colour blocking is a good strategy for taller women – just make sure that you include details that draw the eye up and down, such as a long pendant necklace. If you go for the monochromatic look, be sure to finish it off with a brightly coloured accessory, such as a chunky bracelet or scarf, to add interest.

Embrace Vertical Details

Vertical details are details that draw the eye up and down. This includes zippers, sweaters with vertical cable knits, and pleats, for instance. Look for jewellery such as long, vertical pendants and long beaded necklaces.

Choose V-Necks

V-necks are the perfect neckline style for elongating your shape because they pull the eye up and down, rather than side to side. If you have a fuller bust, opt for a V-neck that stops just above your cleavage. Women with narrow shoulders can wear a neckline that is slightly rounded but still add a long necklace for maximum slimming.

Accessorise Strategically

Continue the vertical theme with your other accessories, as well. If you wear scarves, for instance, wear them long and loose or let one end dangle freely rather than bundling the scarf up. The exception to this rule is if you are pear-shaped; in this case, keeping most of the scarf up higher will add balance to your figure.

Wear Clothes That Fit Correctly

When you choose clothes, make sure they aren’t too tight or too lose – neither is flattering on any body type. It may be tempting to hide behind baggy clothes, but this isn’t a solution that works. Clothes that are too big will only make you look bigger. On the other hand. Too-tight clothes become wrinkles when you move around and create unflattering bulges and bumps that widen your frame.
