20 Mar Autumn Fashion for Plus Size Women
Twenty-nineteen is shaping up to be a great year for plus size fashion. Like never before, we don’t feel like our clothing style has to be in a completely separate category to less curvy women as fashion designers are finally starting to understand the value of curves.
In that vein, we have five fashion tips for autumn – they work for any woman, but are especially flattering options on our curves as the weather cools.
Dresses with Boots
One of our favourite parts of autumn is getting to buy a new pair of boots! We love a good boot and dress combo, and think it is a great look for plus size women. Extend the life of those summer midi dresses and look incredibly stylish by pairing them with a pair of brown ankle boots.
All About Layers
Autumn is a tricky time of year with cold mornings and nights but warm days. The answer is layering. Pair a plus size t-shirt with an easy to remove cardigan; throw a cute denim jacket on over your dress; or wear a singlet you’re comfortable to be seen in underneath your plus size long sleeve shirts in case you get caught out on a surprisingly warm day.
If you’re not sure what colours suit this season, get your inspiration from nature. Like the falling leaves, mustard yellows, dark oranges, natural greens and burgundy-reds make for excellent autumn fashion. Gorgeous on many women, these slimming, deep, earthy colours tend to work especially well as plus size women’s clothing. The Sama + Kiki fashion label has some gorgeous new items that fit the bill like the Eb & Ive Bodega Knit or Korbel Top.
Capes and Vests
Let the fun begin this autumn with capes and vests. Be an early style adopter and don a moss vest – it’s a striking look for any body shape and size, adding fuzzy warmth to your outfit and able to be dressed up or down. Or forgo the cardi and wrap a cape like Eb & Ive’s Bruny Cape around you – it’s stunning, stylish and versatile – plus size fashion wear has never looked this cutting edge!
Think pairing stripes and florals is a bit much? Think again! Curvy girls sometimes shy away from patterns, but we encourage you to go bold and mix patterns for a stylish and flattering look. The trick is to combine patterns on one half while keeping the other half of your outfit subdued.
Try a striped shirt and floral cardigan over denim pants or choose a plain top with a striped skirt and bold patterned shoes. For the confident curvy gal, mix and match yourself, otherwise choose one of our new items that does it for you, like Libertine’s Gatsy Bomber or Casablanca Sweater Top.
Most importantly, Sama + Kiki believe that plus size women’s fashion wear is all about having fun, tossing the rule book out the window finding what suits you and makes you feel fabulous!
