Bold floral prints and geometric and ethnic prints are hot. Black and white prints remain popular, especially when they include a splash of one of the trendy colors.

Plus Size Flamingo Print Tank Top

Plus Size Pink Flamingo Tank TOpI saw two recent fashion posts talking about the popularity of Flamingo prints for this spring and summer (from Glitter Guide here and Nothing to Wear here).

I happen to LOVE Flamingos on anything and decided to see if I could find anything online in plus sizes.

Unfortunately, my results were a little sparse.  I did find five different styles of Flaminog Tees/Tanks from Deb’s Shops.

This sassy pink tank is my favorite!  I love the style, the print and in the summer I would wear it with white shorts, white capris, even white jeans.

The best part?  It’s on sale for $15!

This tank is made from cotton and it has a racer back.  There is another style that looks almost just like this one that has a double twist back, if you prefer that.  It is 25″ long and comes in sizes 1X, 2X and 3X.  You can see it here.

With its bright pink color and whimsical print, this top is right on trend for this season!  Meanwhile, I’ll continue my quest for more flamingos!!

Upcoming Fashion Trends for Winter 2011 – Plus Faux Fur Coats

Plus Size Faux Fur Hooded JacketThe Upcoming Fashion Trends for Winter 2011 include more faux fur, leather and sweaters.    There is a huge selection of beautiful plus size coats and outerwear for this winter, as well as longer and chunkier sweaters than we have seen in a long time.

This year’s faux fur designs are really interesting. We are seeing more and more of it, especially in more casual designs. It wasn’t so long ago that ago that all of them were just faux copies of mink coats. The current designs are trendy and really nice.

I love this Faux Fur Hooded Jacket – it is such a new and fresh look – combining the beauty of faux fur and the casual-ness of a hoodie.  It is a wonderful way to add a toch of fur to your casual wardrobe.  If you live in your blue jeans and think you can’t have a fur coast – well, here you go…

Latest Female Fashion Trends for Fall 2011 includes Bright Colors

xxOne of the Latest Female Fashion Trends for Fall 2011 & Winter is lots of bright and bold colors. We’re not seeing many neutral colors this season and I have yet to read anything about “fall’s neutrals”. I am, however, seeing a lot of black and gray – but they are mostly mixed with brighter colors.

The two big colors this season are Red and Teal Blue – a big yeah! from me, they are two of my favorites. Some of the other colors being touted this season are Rust, Orange and Mustard, but honestly, very few people can pull these color off. While you can find a red to go with any skin tone and teal blue looks good on just about everyone, rust & mustard (or gold) are warmer colors that just aren’t flattering to most complexions. Another popular color that is also flattering to most and will be abundant this season is Jade Green.

Fashion Trends Today – Bohemian Chic for Fall 2011

Fashion Trends Today - Bohemian Chic for Fall 2011One of the hottest Fashion Trends Today is being called “Bohemian Chic”.  It is an updated, eclectic look that borrows from the past’s gypsy, hippie and peasant styles.

This style is also called Boho Chic and it is all about expressing your individuality. The true look is achieved with layers of clothing that have different elements – different colors, patterns or textures and layered accessories.  This look is inspired by the current 1970s influence.

This can be a hard look to pull off – especially for those of us who are plus sized. It is much easier to embrace your Bohemian side and still be trendy with one or two carefully chosen items – such as a flowing, retro style tunic, a peasant top with your jeans or a prairie or broomstick skirt. Also Maxi Dresses are very popular again this season, look for one with your Boho style and add sandals and layered bracelets.

Menswear inspired and Boyfriend styles continue and an all over lace t-shirt will bring instant femininity.  The big fashion for the spring and summer was lace with a vintage vibe – we will still be seeing that.  But we will also be seeing new edgier uses of lace.  As we move forward to the holidays and winter, lace and velvet will be a hot trend.

Plus Size Maxi Dresses for Spring & Summer

Plus Size Maxi DressesPlus Size Maxi Dresses are a very big trend for this spring & summer.  I am seeing them everywhere – from the grocery store to out and about.  I absolutely love Maxi Dresses and feel like a million when I am wearing them.  They are so comfortable and, if you pick the right style, flattering.
