Happy Hump Day all!

Today I have the pleasure of featuring my first guest post! Nisha ( contacted me a few days ago and asked if she could do a  guest post.   Here it is!

Big and Bold Trends

With the right attire, you make a strong and vivid impression. Clothes can flatter any shape and size, if you choose with care, and dressing for work need not be a nightmare or a matter to lose sleep over. Fortunately, fashionable choices have expanded over the past few years to cater to those that need plus-size clothing. With the options now available, it is simply a matter of putting together a wardrobe that works for you as you head to work each day.

  Beginning with basic mix and match styles is always a great idea. Many designers now have a vast array of tops and bottoms that can be combined to show off your curvaceous figure at its best. Pants that flatter your shape are an essential item for your closet. Plus Size Wear to Work pants come in several styles, textures and colours to make them versatile. The same applies to skirts that have dispelled the old notion that large women cannot carry them as well as any other. In colours ranging from the traditional black and grey to the current trends of bolder, brighter shades, these can be mixed with generously, yet stylishly designed blouses, revealing only what you want to reveal. Add a couple of neutral cardigans, or a selection to match your favourite colour schemes.

On the Blazer Trail

Blazers to top the look come a large variety of lengths, shapes, collars and fabrics to suit your outfit. Jacket and blazer trends now include draped, notched, ruched, long and cropped styles. Classic or cute, you need not limit yourself. If your workplace calls for the more traditional suit sets, choices abound in those classic pieces.

Curvy Elegance
Curvy figures are greatly enhanced by dresses, so having at least a few of these is a wise investment. Besides being naturally slimming, alluring designs have been created for the fuller woman. Great new styles can be found at several department store chains. Elegant Elegant and classy sheath dresses, wrap dresses, shift dresses, pleated or plain, are a simple, graceful solution for work wear.

The Art of Minimalism
Minimalism in the world of fashion refers to combining styles cleverly by incorporating simple, neutral and cleanly cut clothes into your collection and has nothing to do with being flat, monotonous, or boring. For the voluptuous woman, choosing the right textures and fabrics goes a long way in determining the total appearance and the impression her outfit makes. That does not imply dressing in shapeless, loose garments; rather, wearing colours that complement your skin tone in well-cut outlines is the key. Mullioned colours can work just as well as solid ones. Colours like black, beige, taupe, soft white, navy, brown should be part of every woman’s wardrobe, while all other shades and colours depend upon your personality and mood. You can be as bold as you wish, or as subtle as you desire.

The Finishing Touches
Last, but not the least, paying attention to accessories – from the jewellery you adorn yourself with to the purse or handbag you carry and shoes you wear – make it all come together to create the elegant woman, sophisticated yet comfortable in her own skin.  I really enjoy writing about fashion, design .

    I second this article and give it my blessing! I love being fashion forward but I work in an office so I have to make sure my wardrobe is practical for work yet fun. It’s so true that color and accessories are a great way to show your personality when you have to dress conservatively for work. Good job Nisha!
