Accessorize to Transform Your Spring Outfit

Plus Size Accessories – Bright Flashy Heels

It’s easy to think about fashion in the broad terms of tops and bottoms. But style is really defined by the subtleties that go into any given outfit. The details don’t just matter — they can unify an outfit and make it greater than the sum of its parts. The best way to accomplish this effect is through accessory choices.

If it sounds overdramatic, think again. Look up any guide on how to dress for spring and you’ll discover a strong focus on accessorizing. That’s because the spring weather is made for accessorizing. Whether it’s scarves and tights to address changing temperatures or the flowing, charismatic accessories that can get lost underneath winter coats, you have plenty of options to express yourself through style. Here are some tips to help make the most of your accessories.

Go big with earrings

Large earrings are perfect for the spring. Whether you choose dangling earrings or gold loops, choose something big and bold to achieve the look. Take advantage and test your own fashion limits.

Slip on eye-catching necklaces

Jewelry of any kind is a big hit in the spring and in 2013, chainmail will be a very popular style. Whether it’s gold, silver or bronze, you can match a chainmail necklace to a bracelet and even shoes of the same material. More traditional necklaces and bubble necklaces are also in style, but the chainmail style will be all the rage this season.

Cute but comfortable shoes

Chainmail and gold are expected to be prominent fixtures among spring shoes, but several different shoe types can be employed in your fashion arsenal. Cork wedges will be at their peak this year — seek out pairs trimmed in wood or jute. If you don’t need the height of a cork wedge, invest in sandals. As temperatures warm, sandals will be your best friend, and you can hold on to these well into the summer heat.

A large range of scarves

Temperatures can fluctuate in the spring and the seasonal breeze can deliver a chill. An assortment of scarves will serve multiple purposes for any fashionista. A bright scarf can be a great accent to any spring dress. Plus, on a cool summer night, a scarf can double as a defense against unexpected cold. Invest not only in scarves of different colors and designs, but those of different thicknesses that will provide a great option.

A wide belt

As skinny belts fall out of style, wide belts are finding a welcoming audience. Strap a wide belt around your waist to bring in any flowy dress. This trick will also create a slimmer profile. Consider the colors and buckle of the belt when accenting your outfit gold is hot this year, so choose some belt options that feature a beautiful gold buckle.

When it comes down to specific fashion choices, you need to evaluate how well the pieces go together and how the overall package fits your style. Don’t be afraid to stretch your own limits. Personal style is a great way to express and reinvent yourself, and by making mindful fashion choices, you can better embody who you truly are.

Brighten Your Wardrobe with Colored Denim

Michael Kors Plus In Red- Macy’s

Colored pants might be startling to some, but they’re only going to get more prominent. For that, you can thank colored denim. Red, green, purple, yellow and crazy multi-colored patterns may historically belong to cotton, knit and synthetic pants, but denim’s adoption of the color spectrum is opening the doors for pant wear that is both brilliant in appearance and durable in use. Here’s a quick guide when incorporating this new look.

Matching your pants to your top

The colors of your new denim can throw some people off when they go to match outfits. If you’re intimidated by trying to find a good top to match with green pants, try this trick: forget your pants are colored. Blue jeans seem to go with anything, and colored denim can be just about as flexible. Of course, there are exceptions — you don’t want tops that too closely match the bottoms, and you’ll want the color contrasts to be complimentary instead of clashing. Struggles to properly match these articles may just be in your head.

If you’re wearing your pants in a more proper setting, a brighter top that contrasts dark colored denim should be no problem. If you’re headed outdoors or out on the town, you can go bold from head-to-toe. Casual wear for daily errands is more a matter of personal preference. Whether you pair colored denim with accessories that transform your outfit or choose to keep the look simple, this new approach to pants opens plenty of options when crafting your own personal style.

General color choices

When you’re shopping for colored denim, you’ll want to consider your body type, your personal style and where you plan on wearing these pants. Additionally, the colors that may garner attention while out on a Saturday night may attract negative reactions in the office. Generally speaking, darker colors will be more flattering on the body, and they won’t serve as such a distraction–this could be a good route if you’re looking for pants that will have a slimming effect. Also, when considering patterns, bear in mind the natural slimming effect of vertical stripes.

Use layering for more dynamic outfits

Layering is important to maintaining good balance in your outfit. You need to stay away from colors that are too similar, including pastel pairings and overly dark tones. An added layer over the top can change everything. A blue denim jacket can subdue the brightness overload of a pink-and-yellow combination. In the same way, a white or light-colored blazer can ease up the darkness of a forest green-and-burgundy pairing. Leather jackets, vests and low-cut cardigans can also mix things up, giving you additional outfit options and greater overall control.

Care tip: Washing your denim

The quality of your denim’s color is key to its longevity. You can help preserve the quality of these colors with proper washing practices. Always wash denim inside-out and run it through a cold water cycle. Don’t dry in a machine — the heat can make the colors fade faster. Hang them out to dry on a line.

Colored denim might seem like a bold choice but it’s a fast-growing trend that will continue to gain steam in coming years. Don’t wait for everyone else to pick up the habit. Invest in some colored pants now and mix them in with your wardrobe to present yourself as a trend-setter.

American Model Star Plus Size  Tara Lynn

Color is hot for spring and summer, so consider getting out of the darks and into some brighter looks.  Fashion runways and plus size fashions are seeing more pops of bold colors.  Today’s plus clothing designed around a real woman’s body in mind, so wearing color has never been easier.  Many lines are designed with lycra, which enables women to move and be comfort, while at the same time being able to wear the form fitting fashions that are fashionable.

One way of getting the brighter looks of the spring and summer is to wear colored jeans.  Colored jeans come in all kinds of widths, ranging from wide-leg, skinny, straight or boot cut.

The jeans should fit snugly without being too tight, Overly tight jeans often detract from a womans body than easy fitting jeans.  If you are looking to buy the strech jeans, buy one size up.  Don’t wear them like pantyhose, but rather a bit loose.  Pantylines shouldn’t show.

Every gal needs one pair of dark wash jeans in her closet.  Dark wash jeans can look professional, and also have a slimming effect to the body. Bootcut will always balance out a heavier top.  While the skinny leg jeans are really hot, they also need the right pair of shoes to pull them off.  Consider heels, or strippy shoes with tapered leg jeggings, or jeans.
