Who says the plus size cannot wear Skirts?

How many times you have heard don’t wear this (especially  western wear like skirts, shorts, dresses), it doesn’t suit you? Wear something that gives you thinner and taller look.

Come on girls, guys, ladies and everyone. It is your one and only life. Stop listening to this crap and do what your heart and brain wants you to do. Wear what you want to, eat what you feel like, do what you are good at, live as you want to, love as it is the last moment of your life.

Anyways for clothes it’s just breaking the stigma. One needs to choose right and wear it with confidence. First love your body and curves, than style it with the clothes you want to wear it. Clothes just act as an icing over the cake. With this philosophy, you will feel much more confident, happy and vibrant.

In this summer I will be talking about my forever love! for skirts. It is a must dress for the wardrobe and who doesn’t want to wear it. Plus size women can also wear it with a style, comfort to look modern and adorable.

Here are certain points to keep in mind while choosing skirts:

  1. Skirt Shape

    There are various types of skirts. A shape, Straight, Pleated, Tulip, Balloon, Pencil, Wraps, Full circle, Gored etc are few names. Different body shapes can carry different types.

  1. Colors

    Not only black, all dark and pastel colors can be the good choice. Dark especially black do give slimming effect, but one or two colors can be combined in balance. Monotone attires when clubbed with colorful accessories, can give you a great standout in the crowd.

  1. Prints and patterns

    All women should welcome and experiment with horizontal stripes, vertical stripes, bold prints, subtle prints, animal prints etc all to create a fashion statement. Horizontal stripe draws eyes sideways, therefore giving illusion of wide body whereas vertical strips gives you elongated illusion. According to me, we can mix horizontal and vertical stripes in attire. Take horizontal stripes across shoulder and bust; vertical across waist and hips for an hourglass effect.

Bold prints and big patterns give striking distinctive and bigger appearance whereas subtle prints and small patterns will give you simple and smaller look. Therefore you can choose between bold and subtle prints, to highlight the beautiful assets you want to flaunt and camouflage the parts you want to hide.

4. Fabric

Choose fabric which is fluid, flows through your body and doesn’t add volume to your curves. Avoid satin, heavy fabrics, shiny materials as they will add extra pounds to your body shape and weight.
