It looks like minimalism is going strong with the longline trend. Yes, the name pretty much describes it all—long pieces and clean lines. As you’ll see below. You may have noticed this trend started in 2014 with menswear and only a few pieces for women. But, it really has caught my attention this spring and into summer. My friend Rachel is rocking it here. Of course, I found some amazing plus size longline pieces below. From vests to tops, which one is your favorite?
As spring and summer rolls around, it’s all about light weight materials. And as much as I love denim, sometimes it can be a little too heavy for the warmer weather. That’s why the chambray trend is always an awesome alternative. And like any basic, it’s a blank slate. It’s really easy to accessorize and style.
Trends come and go. We know that. But, I can tell you I appreciate the trends that cater to the simplistic side of my personal style. You know I’m not one to overdo it in that department. That’s I why I totally love the plus size minimalist trend that seems to be gaining some speed. I mean, it’s always been around, but the minute spring and summer comes a long, it seems to jump out at me.
Tropical prints are always popular this time of the season. Actually, wrote this post around this time last year. I’ve been wanting to write about it, but I’m barely getting to it now. And the last few couple of days, I’ve been in a planning mode for a special weekend I’m helping to put together in Miami. Which means, I definitely have tropical thoughts in my heart and on my mind. So, I had to put this style trend post together.
I was just sent a sneak peek of the Lane Bryant Fall 2015 collection and I had to share it with you guys! You’ll find not only your staple pieces below (including 6th & Lane), but there is also outerwear, denim, intimates, bras, accessories, shoes, activewear, and even jewelry. I really think there’s something for everyone in this collection. From casual to even a few edgier styles, it’s all covered.
You may have noticed that I have a thing for accessories. This is especially true when it comes to necklaces. They can make or break an entire outfit for me. When I accessorize, I tend to choose a piece that will standout—since my outfits aren’t very complicated. This spring and summer (AKA festival season), one of my favorites are on trend—silver statement necklaces. And I found 15 of them to share with you!
How many of you are tired of people assuming that just because we wear plus sizes, that we aren’t active? I’m sick of it. You and I both know that’s a myth that needs to be squashed right now. Not only do we workout, but we also do yoga, lift weights, go hiking, swim, do pilates, attend dance classes and more. We not only want a healthy body, but we also want stylish and funtioning plus size activewear.
I know half of the country is covered in ice and snow right now. Don’t worry my loves. Spring is coming and soon you’ll be running around in your favorite spring trends. Right now I’m all about dresses. Normally, I’m not a dress kind of girl, but today it’s all I can think about. Here are my 10 favorite spring dress trends.
Pendant necklaces have always been a personal favorite of mine. It seems like everyone else is feeling them too. They are one of the latest jewelry trends and I’m loving it! You’ll find them layered, in gold or silver, different stones, and various shapes. And don’t worry about how to wear them, this is a necklace that’s pretty easy to style.
The arrow can symbolize a whole list of things. One of my favorites is it’s meaning of “direction.” I think that’s something some of us can use in our daily lives. Or maybe that’s just me. How about we just jump in and enjoy the arrow trend as it makes it way into our shopping lives.
The minute my brain even thinks of spring, I just want to wear nothing but pointed pumps. Even though half the time they aren’t the most comfortable style of shoe for my feet. I still love them besides the fact. They go with practically everything. And they come in a range of styles, colors, and prices.
Whenever the holidays roll around, the obsession with sequins begins. Don’t you just love it? I do! Can you please just drape me in sequins? I couldn’t think of a better thing to wear during my favorite time of the year. I’m supposed to be doing something else right now, but I just had to roundup some of my favorite plus size sequin skirts.
