Six ways
to ruin your outfit

Plus size women want plus size clothing that looks good. So, we go to great lengths to find clothes that work for our fuller figures. Once you’ve found those clothes, how you put them together makes all the difference. It’s the details that make or break an outfit and sometimes we can overlook the most pertinent ones.
Here are six common ways to ruin your outfit.

1.Lack of confidence:
You can always tell when a woman doesn’t feel comfortable in her clothes. She’s the woman in the corner tugging at her skirt, pulling down her sweater, and constantly looking around her to see if anyone else has noticed. This is one of the most common ways to ruin your outfit, when actually it more than likely looks prefectly good.
Trendsetters wear what they like, and everyone else takes notice. For plus size women, it’s not necessary to be a trendsetter, but it is really important to feel confident in your clothes.
Wear clothes that fit you well and that you feel comfortable in. Pick your outfit to suit your shape and colouring.
Use common sense, your own personal style and our tips, and you won't ruin your outfitYou look your best when you feel at your best.

2.Accessory overload:
Too many accessories can make your outfit look busy or cluttered. When in doubt, remove a piece or two to be safe. If you have a fuller figure it is often best to use a couple of well chosen chunkier pieces, than lots of smaller pieces. The lack of adornment can get boring. Always aim for a nice balance.

3.Shabby or ill-chosen outerwear:
The onset of winter we like to snuggle up into our favourite snuggliest coat to stay warm, but this shouldn't force us to neglect how we look.
If you cover a great outfit with an scruffy, or unflattering coat, then that’s the first impression that you give.
Have your coat dry cleaned at the end of every winter. Make sure that it flatters you. And if it really has seen better days bin it, and buy a new one
The same applies to your jackets, handbags and shoes
Make sure that your plus size outerwear doesn’t ruin your outfit.

4.The wrong fit:
Finding the right plus size clothing can be a challenge, but the benefits are well worth the effort. Never settle for clothes that are too tight or oversized. Tight clothing will only emphasize your lumps and bumps Baggy clothing will make you look larger
Well fitting garments show your body in its best light.

5.The wrong shoes:...Or boots, or sandles
Have you ever seen a woman dressed in a cotton sundress and a clunky pair of black shoes? Nuff said!
Shoes are like the punctuation at the end of a sentence. Make sure the shoes you wear are relevant to the rest of your outfit.

6.The wrong underwear:
What you wear under your clothes is just as important as the clothes you wear. There’s nothing less attractive than the infamous VPL, the notorious thong riding up above the waistline of your jeans, or a bra that just isn’t doing its job.
Choose underwear and shapewear that fits properly and complements the outfit that you are wearing.
