PLUS SIZE TREND SPOTTING: FLORAL SPRING SUMMER 2013

Ah, spring! It’s the season of full bloom, a time of colors, and the ever beautiful rebirth of everything that’s beautiful in nature. So, how do you celebrate this season? The fashion-forward people at Eloquii, City Chic, Bryant, and ASOS Curve will show you how with their floral collections. Trend spotting this year will never be as colorful. As you transcend from spring to summer, take note of these favorites.

Perhaps the most popular way of celebrating the colors of spring is by wearing a flirty, floral dress with an A-line skirt. Necklines should not necessarily be low, but the pattern and the cut compensates for the conservative way of showing some skin.

Alternatively, a short A-line or full skirt is the best bet for those of you who aren’t feeling flirty. Pair it with anything else but cotton- leather, suede, velvet- for an interesting take on the trend.

Another way of wearing a dress this season is to choose a body-hugging fit. Remember that the best length for this silhouette is from a hemline that falls a few inches above the knee to one that lightly touches mid-knee.

A peplum top is also as interesting as a short, full miniskirt. In fact, it creates an hourglass silhouette because it cinches you at the waist. Remember that for this look to work, the waist has to fit snug against your skin.

One quirky way of wearing pants this season is by wearing printed trousers. Since florals are the most popular pattern, get yours in rich, vibrant colors that you can pair with a plain top.

Trends are not just for casual wear. In fact, you can also wear them in the office. Blazers and pencil skirts are usually the preferred outfit for women, but there are other options for you. You can try a loose button-down top in a light fabric or a satin cowl neck. Button-down dresses that have straight cuts can be transformed into office clothes if you pair them with heels and a wide belt.

What’s spring without maxi dresses, right? Of course, these also come in spring colors and patterns. To stand out from the crowd, you can grab one that you can wear during formal events such as afternoon weddings. Plunging necklines or strapless tops look dramatic if you pair them with heels. Besides, the full length and tasteful exposure of skin makes you look taller and leaner.

What people love most about spring is that the air is a little warmer- not too hot for you to perspire while walking down the street, but just right to feel the sun kissing your skin. This weather is ideal for wearing free-flowing and sheer fabric. Whether you’re out for a brunch date with your friends or doing errands, a casual number using light fabric will allow you to move and groove as you please.
