With plus size offerings being limited, your choices need to be smart in order to stay ahead of the fashion curve. So, here’s a list of thoughtfully chosen essentials that’ll make your everyday dressing more fashionable, easy and stress-free. If you find it hard to keep your wardrobe current and embrace your curves at the same time then read on:

  • A quality sweater

    Investing in a few cashmere sweaters, in your favorite colors goes a long way. These are easy to tuck in and look clean when left un-tucked. The best part is that you get warmth without the bulk. 

  • A classic blouse

    This one may not be one of the most exciting pieces, but it certainly is one of the most versatile. It is simple and can easily partner with nearly everything from jeans to tailored trousers. So, whether you’re rocking skirts, printed trousers or ripped jeans, you can never go wrong with this classy staple in neutral hues such as black, navy, beige and crème. 

  • The Perfectly fitted jeans

    Invest in a pair of jeans that make your butt look fab. These bottoms make brilliant alternatives to super-serious work trousers and leggings. Try these on with a T-shirt, a knotted crop top or a crisp white shirt to instantly look a few notches more chic.  

  • A Casual Dress

    It is worth paying for a dress that fits and flatters. A black dress tailored in a spandex blend material that cinches your waist will be your best bet. This kind of fabric follows your curves while keeping the silhouettes intact.

    Get your hands on a neutral shade that goes with everything and a style that ends around your pelvic area that flatters most of the body types.  

  • A T-shirt

  • A Denim Jacket

    Denim jackets are perfect for mornings and evenings. This throw-on with everything outer wear is a practical and versatile piece that keeps you feeling warm and looking fab, all year long.

  • A Longline shirt

    From oversized and slightly sheer to completely opaque, longline shirts come in a variety of colors, fabrics and prints to cater to individual wearer’s needs. You can wear these as tie-ups, dresses or pair these with ankle-cropped jeans for a simple yet chic coffee date look.  

  • A go-to Party dress

    Something that looks good on you and makes feel amazing must be your party wear pick.

  • Well-fitting undergarments

    Inner wear that are specifically cut out for plus sizes, which are well-made and offer some level of contouring, can make a world of difference. Shopping for these is going to feel like a treat for yourself, so spare a day for it, try on different sizes, colors, prints and bag the ones that look pretty and make you feel confident at the same time.
