I know many plus sized women worry about wearing prints and the fact that they could possibly give the impression of being larger than they would like to appear. However, that could not be further from the truth. Prints on plus sized women can add add the much needed oomph to an otherwise drab outfit.
Whether it’s stripes or leopard a print can be worn by plus sized women if done right. Wearing a print can change your outlook on your little outfit whether running errands or going out to dinner.
Here are a few hints:
1. For an all over print do it in a lighter fabric that won’t cling to your body. A dolman sleeve top is a perfect way, because of the looser nature of the top the print won’t look like it’s clinging to your body.
2. Don’t make the print too big and bold. Bright huge roses will only make you look out proportioned by the big print.
3. Use animal prints thoughtfully. Use them as a metallic but pair with some awesome trouser jeans to show your chic style. Another way to use animal print is as an accent to a top, like just the sleeves.
4. Go retro mod prints in a tunic top or sheath dress. Pair with leggings or tights to complete the look this fall.
The most important thing to remember if you’re plus size is that prints are not out of the question. If you use them right they can really flatter your figure. If all else fails and you want to dip your toes into the pool of prints start out with a scarf and shoes. You’ll soon find yourself in love with wearing prints.
Do you have any great plus size print advice to share? I’d love to hear it.
