what's the top

Plus size tunics and tops are a great cross between shapely and comfortable. Pair a plus size white shirt or pintuck-front tunic with a pair of wide leg trousers, accessorize lightly, slip on a boyfriend jacket, grab a hobo bag, and you're set for a casual day. Layer a snuggly plus size Aran knit cardigan over a silky tank in a dark neutral for an eye-catching contrast.

Are your plus size tops ready for the new season?

Summer may not be officially over but we pass Labor Day on our way to plus size fashions geared to Fall Season. Lightweight plus size tops are still in vogue, perhaps layered with plus size sweaters for late evening. Keep your eyes open for cashmere ponchos and large shawls that flatter as well as warm.

Selecting fashionable plus size tops for fall

Look for plus size shirts and blouses that work over camisoles and under plus size sweaters and jackets. Light layers work best as the seasons turn - take advantage of this to bring on a swirl of Fall's fashion colors - gold, camel, burnt orange and burgundy.

Plus Size Tops

Keep your torso profile and body in mind while selecting plus size blouses and tops. If you are larger in the bust and shoulders than in the waist and hips, your body type is Inverted Triangle. Choose darker color plus size blouses designed to draw the eye toward the waist instead of the shoulders. Avoid ruffles at the neck and shoulders.

Plus Size Shirts

Plus size shirts should be cut and tailored with your plus size shape in mind. Look for armholes and sleeves cut with more room to move and stretch. Select a plus size shirt with soft darts at the waist to create shape and form fit. If your torso profile is larger in the waist and hips, choose collars that draw the eye up to the shoulders and neck.

To floral or not to floral? That is the question! Ladies... forget what you've heard about plus-size women not being able to wear pretty floral prints. We most certainly can wear fun and feminine florals! Floral tops and blouses are a fabulous choice year-round for plus-size women. The key to floral prints is all about the size of the bloom and the spacing of the flowers within the print. Wide spaced florals (also larger blooms) with lots of background color showing through look best.

The same applies to floral dresses. Don't shy away from those pretty florals, but do keep an eye on the background and the size of the bloom. That's the trick in wearing florals. If you have always kept away from floral prints completely, give it a whirl!

Did You Know This About Plus Size?

Sizing in Australia is not synchronous with the US; plus size garments are considered to be size 14 and upward, which is the equivalent of a US size 12.
