This Winter 2012, the plus size fashion line, ‘Elegance’ (a fashion line that started in October 1999 in Portugal), created a more provincial look. Don’t let it fool you though. This type of plus size fashion is sure to stir a little bit of your curiosity! Elegance described their Winter 2012 plus size fashion collection as more of a ‘folk proposal, without sacrificing the elegance’. Over all the plus size fashion collection revolves around ‘fringe, embroidery, lace and leather’ creating a sophisticated look that is current yet down to earth! Here is a review of the Elegance’s plus size fashion collection for Winter 2012.
Elegance showed some fabulous plus size fashion jeans for their Winter 2012 collection. In the image below, the plus size jeans were paired with old-country inspired, button down tops, complete with lace layers and knitted over top. Among all of these looks though, the farthest one to the right is the most ‘folk’ like of them all, channeling some old ‘deputy Jane’ with the denim on denim plus size ensemble! MORE IMAGES →
StylishDressing.com was initially envisioned as a fashion imagery hub from where women of all shapes and sizes could derive inspiration. However, our team noticed that plus sized women were a hugely under represented group in the fashion industry. StylishDressing.com then repositioned itself as a ‘Curated Plus Size Fashion Inspiration’ blog. We believe that beauty does not come in any particular size or shape and believe that all designers should start to feature more plus size models. No, we are NOT against women of any size-we are only advocating a larger representation for plus size women in the fashion world.
We do not claim to be industry experts – those are the plus size magazines and plus fashion bloggers. We thank each one of them for the excellent job they are doing to bring plus size into mainstream fashion. We also thank all those gorgeous plus size models, hair and make-up artistes, photographers and stylists who were kind enough to grant us publishing rights.
But yes, we are experts at scouring the web and delivering the best images and insights on the latest trends in plus size fashion. StylishDressing.com has tie-ups with leading plus size designers, stylists, fashion photographers, models, bloggers and industry experts. This allows us to excel at what we do – inspiring you!
