7 Rules of plus size dressing you must break in 2019
In a world that constantly dictates how a plus size individual should dress up, 2019 is the year to make your own rules and break stereotypes. If you are someone who loves the idea of freedom of expression through clothes, it is time to defy these seven ‘plus-size fashion rules’ so that you not only look but feel fabulous.
- Vertical over horizontal stripes
A common rule for plus size women is to stay away from horizontal stripes. Why? Curvy women need to toss this rule out in 2019 and embrace horizontal stripes because they look great, regardless of size. Pair this Coral striped top from aLL’s online store with dark jeggings for a chic, casual look. Add a pair of hoop earrings, pump shoes and a clutch to bring an unapologetically sassy look into the new year.
- No bodycon
Want that party look, but the rule book says no bodycon for plus-sized folk? Well, chuck the rulebook out the window because this bodycon dress from the house of aLL is perfect for flaunting those curves. It’s black, bold and stylish, and is an excellent choice for an evening of dancing with the girls.
