Black and White Clothing:  Season’s Trend

After watching the Academy Awards I was puzzled as to what color may be in this season.  Did you feel the same way?  I do not know about you but I saw a lot of Red Carpet red.  (Diva’s love red.  It’s so HOT)  I think Jennifer wore it the best.  Of course there was a lot of white evening gowns and bit of royal blue.  And then there was the basic black and white dress!  Lovely.  When I read the blogs in Fashion Trends on Google groups I see that Black and White is back.  Where did it go anyway?  Black and white has always been a statement, right?  Isn’t New York City the Black and White apple in fashion?

Well, this season its going to be a fashion clothing print commitment.  Out with the neon and in with the white tops and black pants.  So the good news you probably own have a plus size clothing collection stored faithfully in you garment closet.  You are ready to go and hit the catwalk!

What I like about White and Black is that it is classic.  You can add a bit of white to black and it makes the clothing outfit pop out.  For plus size women it is slimming.  So this is the second good news, we can be in fashion working our basic clothing foundation and look trim.  Do you think the person who was this year’s trend setter might have been a women and more importantly a women with a big size?

Here are some suggestions to be in the Black and White seasonal trend:

1. choose a white tank with a black cover and black pants

2. choose a black bead necklace when wearing a white top

3.  add accessories in black and white (a bit of fake gold helps too or silver)

4.  purchase a black shoe with white tips

Long Sleeve Knit Twist in Black/White

5. add a white silk sash or scarf to your outfit if it is mostly black

What is most important is not to look like you are going to a funeral.  Have fun with it.

I love to hear back from my readers.  Do you have any good tips for wearing black and white?

Plus Size Clothing: Simple Details are Beautiful

There is a lot of plus size clothing and fashion now online.  Prior to 2009, the internet just had a few women’s clothing stores that featured big sizes.  These clothing stores were small operations but with quality fashions. However many offered very loud colors and big prints.  The design of the fabric seemed to be in command.  Even today there are stores that offer big bold prints at reduced prices.   There is not much special about them except the price.  Are you willing to compromise good design and fabric over costs?  Is it better to save a bit more and get something you really like?  I think so.

The key to selecting a plus size garment is in the details.  When you have the funds look for this.   I certainly believe that “Simple details are beautiful”.  Do you agree?  When you observe nature it is not complicated.  For example this rose:

It is simple.  It has just two colors.  Beautiful.  The rose does not need anymore details to express itself.  Now let’s take a look at another rose, similar and compare it to a blouse by Generous Fashions.

Both images are similar.  They use the white background to enhance the other color.  The trim at the neckline is so simple and basic.  The clothing designer brings life to the neckline but not in a loud way.  It is a quiet addition.  The sleeves also add to the harmony of the total blouse.  You do not have to purchase BIG floral prints to make a fashion statement.  It is all in the details.

What kind of details to look for when shopping for clothes:

1. Trim at the neckline

2. Gentle pattern

3. Details at the sleeve

4. Trim at the cuff

5. Contrasting threads

6. Double fabric

7.  Interesting buttons

So go out there and let me know what  you find!  I challenge you to comment on my blog and tell me what you found!
