Shopping online is no longer a fad. It is a fact of life and it is here to stay. Clicking on a beautiful dress or accessory is now the norm, and fashion retailers such as Dress Barn have gone completely online. If you are searching for the perfect outfit for any occasion, look no further. Read on to learn about the latest trends for curvy women.
1. Wrap Dresses
In 1974, the iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg created the first wrap dress. It has remained a fashion staple ever since for an excellent reason. The wrap dress flatters every body type, and none more so than women with curves. The v-neck accentuates the cleavage without showing too much skin. It also hugs your hips without being too clingy. The perfect wrap dress can give almost any woman a luscious hour-glass figure. It works well in any color, though this year the trend is on colorful prints.
2. Bold Prints
Prints and patterns are powerful. They can take a ho-hum dress and create drama and life. A colorful print makes a statement about the wearer, indicating a colorful person with loads of personality. Bright pops of color are trending this winter, so pick a print that brings out your best features. If you have golden-brown eyes, choose a bright pink print, or choose a bold purple to bring out your green peepers. Designers in the past made plus size dresses for women in somber dark tones that made us yawn. This year embrace prints and stripes in bold colors, particularly blues, reds, and greens. And if it has glitter, buy it. You can actually find some of these dresses on Dressbarn. They are now fully open again but online only. It may be worth checking them out to see if there are any selections that suit your needs.
3. Floral Prints
Speaking of bold prints, floral prints are making a huge comeback, Dresses, tops, and slacks are embracing luscious roses, camellias, and lilies. One thing to keep in mind when buying floral prints is placement. If you are trying to maximize a specific area, a bold floral print will draw attention to it. A solid dark color will minimize it.
If all-over floral isn’t your cup of tea, accessorize with a floral print scarf or handbag. For example, a stunning floral shawl draped over your shoulders will draw attention to your shoulders, neck, and bust. Accessories are the perfect way to adopt current trends without having to overhaul your entire wardrobe.
4. The Peasant Dress
Another welcome comeback this year is the soft and feminine peasant dress. The peasant dress became an official thing back in the 70s, and it has become a perennial favorite. One reason they are so beloved is their versatility. You can wear an off-the-shoulder peasant dress or a more reserved look and still remain on-trend. The wonderful thing about peasant dresses is they come in lovely floral prints, which are also in style. Like the floral look, you can also adopt the trend with the judicious use of accessories. A soft floral handbag will do the trick, and so will scarves and wraps. Embrace all the flowers and colors this season and you will be totally hip.
