Hi Chicsters! Today’s post is about Tips for Building Plus Size Wardrobe: Spring Edition. Building a capsule wardrobe can be a challenge, especially if you're plus-sized. With so many options and trends available, it can be difficult to know where to start. But with a little bit of planning and some key pieces, you can create a versatile and stylish spring wardrobe that flatters your figure and fits your lifestyle.
Here are some tips to help you build a plus-size capsule wardrobe for spring:
Start with a color palette
Choose a few colors that complement your skin tone and mix and match them for a cohesive look. For example, you could go for a palette of pastel shades like light pink, lavender, and mint green, or you could choose a monochromatic look with shades of navy or olive.
Invest in quality basics
A well-fitting white t-shirt, light wash jeans, and a versatile cardigan are essential pieces for a plus-size capsule wardrobe. Look for pieces made from comfortable and breathable fabrics, like cotton or linen. These items will form the foundation of your wardrobe and can be dressed up or down as needed.
Add statement pieces
A bright blazer, a printed dress, or a bold accessory can add personality and interest to your outfits. These pieces can make a statement on their own or can be paired with more neutral items for a balanced look. Bag, hats, and jewelry can add the finishing touch to your outfits. Look for pieces that complement your color palette and personal style. A statement necklace or a colorful bag can add some fun and personality to your look, while a classic watch or a structured handbag can add some sophistication.
Don’t forget outerwear
A light spring jacket or a trench coat is a must-have for transitional weather. Look for styles that flatter your shape and can be dressed up or down. Consider investing in a waterproof jacket for those April showers, and a lightweight cardigan or kimono for milder days.
Consider vertical stripes
Vertical stripes can create the illusion of height and elongate your silhouette. Look for stripes in dresses, tops, or pants to add some interest to your outfits.
Invest in comfortable shoes
Shoes can make or break an outfit, so make sure you have a few pairs that are both stylish and comfortable. Look for styles with cushioned insoles, sturdy soles, and enough room for your toes. Consider adding a pair of flats, sneakers, and sandals to your collection for versatile footwear options.
Embrace your curves
Don't hide behind baggy clothes. Opt for fitted pieces that show off your shape and make you feel confident. Look for styles that hug your curves in all the right places, like a wrap dress or a bodycon skirt. Remember, clothes that fit well are always more flattering than clothes that are too big or too small. Regardless of your size, finding clothes that fit well is key. Try on pieces before you buy, and consider getting alterations if needed. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different cuts and styles to see what works best for your body type.
Building a plus-size capsule wardrobe should be enjoyable, so don't take it too seriously. Experiment with different styles and find what works best for you. Remember that fashion is about self-expression, not just about following trends. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try new things, you never know what you might discover. It doesn't have to be difficult or overwhelming building your wardrobe. So have fun with it, embrace your curves. With these tips, you'll be able to create a wardrobe that you love and feel confident in, no matter the occasion.
