Party dresses for full-figured girls are full of color and variety
For the full-figured woman who groans at the prospect of a social occasion, here is some good news! The fashion market is currently booming with a host of exciting, figure-flattering party dress styles, which not only flatter larger bodies, and are also in sync with current fashion trends. This means that the full-figured girl will not only wear dress styles which accentuate her generous figure, but will also wear hues, cuts and shapes which are trending on the runway. Gone are the days of having to hide behind frumpy, fashion-backward outfits which do nothing for the figure, the era of the fashion-forward full-figured diva has begun!
One of the top fashion trends this season is the sheath dress. Worn by curvy women such as First Lady Michelle Obama and actress Monica Bellucci, the sheath dress is a single, body-hugging dress, which is available in a variety of necklines. For the plus size woman, selecting a sheath dress with a flattering neckline is important; it is usually recommended to go with a v style neck as it lengthens the neck and flatters the bust. Cinching the waist with a thick, stylish belt will complete the hourglass look, and a pair of stilettos will add the illusion of height. A tip for plus size women when it comes to accessorizing any party dress, is to stick to slimmer silhouettes and to avoid platform heels and too much chunky Jewellery.
Party dresses this season are high on the color and embellishment factor. From ostentatious baroque style designs to bright neon’s, from flower appliqués to detailed oriental prints, there is no limit to the various colors and designs that are present on the runway. For plus-sized women, these styles are equally accessible and wearable, with a few rules to keep in mind. It is best to stick with smaller prints while choosing party dresses with prints and digital designs. It is also important to select one’s dress size wisely; many women fall into the trap of thinking that squeezing into a size 10 when one is a size 14 will create the illusion of a smaller frame, but that is incorrect. Choose the size, which fits comfortably and work out ways in which to create a slimmer effect.
There are ways in which to make brighter hues work for plus-size women, thereby dispelling the rather boring rule of wearing dark, slimming colors. Highlighting your arms, waist, or legs and focusing on those areas will draw attention away from the areas, which you would rather not focus on. Party dresses with vertical stripes are in fashion this season and are recommended for plus-size women; they would be most flattering in an A line or V-neck style dress which ends at knee-length.
Party dress styles for full-figured women, therefore, are not only flattering for larger body types, but are also in line with the latest fashion trends. It is easier for larger women to be in sync with fashion without compromise, and, with a little attention to necklines and other details, will ensure that the gap between fashion and plus size customers is bridged effectively.
