While a few years ago clothes in larger sizes – if they existed at all – often eked out a sad existence in the farthest corners as camouflage and baggy fabrics, today the attitude of the fashion industry has changed.

Not only since the body positivity movement began, there have been successful curvy models in the world. They have shown the true style icon for all women over size 36. With the following styling ideas, you can be an eye-catcher as a plus-size woman too.

Below are some of the perfect plus size looks

OUTFIT #1: HIGH-WAIST PANTS, SHIRT, AND BLAZER

With high-waist trousers, which are characterized by the high waistband and reach over the hips , the waist and thus the narrowest point is perfectly staged. The combination with a shirt – cleverly tucked into the waistband – which sits out of competition with the high waistband and rounded off with a short blazer, makes the trio perfect. With high-waist trousers, the legs also appear longer and high shoes also visually stretch.

OUTFIT #2: DRESS OR SKIRT AND SNEAKERS

A tight-fitting dress or a skirt and sneakers may not seem right at first glance. Oh yes – if a few rules are followed: Do a fashion experiment and wear sneakers that match the color of the dress or skirt. Or you combine bright colors and eye-catching shoe prints into a simple dress. So every woman becomes an eye-catcher!

OUTFIT #3: TONE-ON-TONE LOOK

With this simple but at the same time extremely successful fashion idea, everyone hits the right note. Although you can never go wrong with the classic black and gray, it can also quickly appear monotonous and bland. And let’s be honest: Who can resist fiery red?! That’s right, nobody! An eye-catcher par excellence. Many plus size models know that too, and they hit the spot with breathtaking plus size outfit – from head to toe!

OUTFIT NO. 4: CULOTTE, STRIPED BLOUSE AND PUMPS

The culotte is not only a stylish it-piece, but also an ideal compromise if you can’t decide between trousers and a skirt. Plain culottes are best combined with a striped or patterned blouse or a shirt in a different color. Plus-size women are advised to always wear culottes with heels – this stretches the silhouette and the flowing, wide fabric of the culotte caresses the legs.
