Spring is Coming…Plus Size Style Tips to Get you Ready!

Friday, January 23, 2009

Although it’s hard to believe at the moment as we look out of the window onto a miserable, cold, rainy scene but spring really is on its way! This always comes as a welcome arrival and as the sun begins to reappear our attention turns to the most enjoyable part of a change in season: A wardrobe update! I’m very pleased to tell you that this spring there are some gorgeous fashions emerging and, for the plus size clothesmarket, close attention to pattern and shape means that we can all feel feminine, confident and ready to fully embrace the season. Here at Yours Clothingwe are particularly excited about our coming collections, the most fashion inspired and best value to date!

While we’re eagerly anticipating the new collections to arrive, there are some great ways for us all to prepare our wardrobe for a top-up. Here are my top 3 ways to get yourself and your wardrobe ready for spring:

1. Have a good clear out – There are certain items we all own that we simply can’t bring ourselves to throw away. This spring, many garments from last year will still be wearable with a new twist so there’s no need to be brutal. However it is important to keep your look fresh so if there are any wardrobe horrors lurking about then now’s the time to chuck them out! A good clear out can instantly make you feel ready for a little modernisation.

2. Stock up on great value staples– At the moment, while there aren’t too many gorgeous spring prints and styles about to distract you, have a quick check to see if you need to stock up on or replace some key wardrobe items. For example, us curvy ladies always need a good pair of black bootleg trousers and a pair of flattering jeans. Investing in these must-have pieces now will mean that you can treat yourself to ‘fashion’ items throughout the year with confidence that you will have something to wear them with! Check out the great range of plus-size trousers and jeans at today.

3. Choose your style – There are some key trends which we will all be wearing this spring/summer and over the next few weeks I will be introducing you to them with some great tips on how to get the most out of the look. For the time being however, try and think about the look/style you would like to try out in the coming months. What is your wardrobe most lacking? Are you keen to progress at work and need to dress accordingly? Or, are you keen to try a completely new trend?! It’s important to have an idea of the look you are you looking for before the spring styles tempt you to buy anything too rashly.

With these simple rules, you should be ready when the time comes for a spring spree. Stay tuned for some spring trend exclusives over the next few weeks. Meanwhile I’m off to have a good clear out and a flick through some magazines for my very own new season wardrobe overhaul!
