Look Good Staying Warm Until Spring

By Sarah On December 19, 2007 1 Comment

At the height of winter, the only way to stay warm is to layer up. The key is to use thin layers, like long sleeved t-shirts, pointelle sweaters, and even tank tops with details. Top it all off with a belted jacket to create a slimming and warm look. But don’t forget about accessories! The right tote makes all the difference. Match your coat and bag to create a more cohesive outfit.

“I need to layer through the end of winter, its just too cold!” says Christine Alt, Woman Within Style Consultant. “I try to keep my layers smooth and neat for a streamlined tailored look. I always make sure that everything works together, even my bag!”

Woman Within’s selection of key layering pieces and great accessories:

Knit pullover sweater

The Mainstreet Blues™ Pointelle knit pullover sweater is thin yet warm. It is perfect over a button down shirt. Featured item $19.99 – $24.99

Leather trench coat

Tie it all together with the Veranesi™ Leather trench coat. Its soft leather will keep you warm and the belt will keep the look slim. Featured item $119.99 – $139.99

Curvy Trends for 2007/2008 – Winter Fashion Forecast

By Sarah On December 17, 2007 No Comments

The following is a guest post by Sara Johnson.

Plus Size Winter Fashion Trends The fashion stars of winter 2007/2008 are a welcome beacon of shimmer, shine and pop of color in an often drab winter palette. 80’s glamour color palette, with updated flattering shapes, combined with the refined luxury of the 40’s have re-emerged throughout the fashion world to an applauding plus size audience.

Jewel tones hues for 2007/2008 are taking center stage, often times replacing the ever-present Little Black Dress as chic choices. Amethyst, cobalt, ruby and emerald are the universally flattering favorites, for all shapes and sizes. The standard myth that black slims, colors expand is being proven incorrect time and again with this gorgeous palette. Rich, saturated colors slim and flatter as well as their somber sister black and alternately, flatter the wearer’s coloring beautifully.

Choose quality fabric, in a rich tone designed to enhance your favorite feature. A beautiful plus size woman, wearing a pop of color in a sea of black is sure to add a little life to even the dullest of holiday hoop-lahs. Still choosing to stick with basic black dress? Add burst of color with bold amethyst satin Maryjane’s and a choice Kenneth Lane Cocktail ring and jeweled bangle set. Mix your accessory colors freely when wearing a solid black clothing palette for dramatic effect.

Shimmer and shine is no longer evening exclusive apparel, glittering choices for the season easily carry the wearer from day to night. Satin shimmering blouses are easily paired with sexy blazers for day and a sexy pair of metallic heels and bold cocktail jewelry for night. Jeweled detailing at the hem, neckline and sleeves add standout detailing to basic shapes we love. When wearing shimmer apply the same rules used with animal print; chose one garment to shine.

Modern opulence combined with the refinement of the 40’s creates an easy assumed elegance for the winter 2007/2008 season. Structured jackets, paired with high waisted trousers in tweeds and wool create the perfect foil when worn with a silk blouse in one of the afore mentioned jewel tones. Feminine curves have made a reappearance in winter design; the tailored styling, supple quality fabrics and flattering design have women with true feminine curves rejoicing.

Winter fashion this season personifies the confidence and empowerment of the modern plus size woman. Curves haven’t been targeted and celebrated in such an effective manner in decades and the shift is receiving a gracious welcome. Flattering choices for the curvy woman are aplenty this season, discriminating, bold fashion lovers, enjoy!

This month’s Store of the Month spot is a tiny little bit different than usual, because we do not have just one store featured but four!

December is holiday season month, and that makes it one of the busiest times of the year. With many different places to be and things to do, December calls for a lot of different outfit changes. This is the reason for our choosing more than one store to highlight during December. I feel that one store for this month is definitely not enough; different stores, all of which specialize in their particular areas, are needed to help make December a more stylish month. So here are my featured stores:

1. Torrid: Specializing in trendy and fashion forward clothing in sizes 12 and over, Torrid have been offering plus size women numerous promotions this month to help us all save some money. With a great select of both casual wear and formal wear, as well as an accessories section great for gift grabbing, Torrid is a great place to go to in December.

2. Kiyonna: Definitely a store not to miss if you are looking for more formal attire this month. If you are looking for something to wear at the office Christmas party, or New Year’s Eve, this is the store to go to.

3. SWAK Designs: A one stop shop for curvy ladies, SWAK Designs had quickly become a favorite among plus size shoppers, and definitely for good reason. Offering a wide variety of stylish items, in large sizes and at affordable prices, SWAK Designs is a place not to miss if you are looking for casual wear, and party dresses.

4. Hips and Curves: I could not forget pointing out the perfect place to go to for some festive curvy lingerie. Without any doubt, Hips and Curves remains again this season the top choice for large ladies to go to for their saucy and sexy intimate apparel needs. With a great selection available, to fill all your holiday nights, Hips and Curves is a clear winner in the curvy lingerie department.

So there you have it ladies, these are the stores you need this month for curvy style survival.
