Spring 2010 Styles from Missphit

The Spring styles from plus size designer Missphit are here! As always Missphit have introduced a number of unique designs to suit the curvy girl’s figure. A lot of soft styles and designs can be seen in this new collection, as well as a number of bold pieces.

Below are some of the styles which caught my eye…

Missphit Spring 2010

Starting from the left, we have the Dip-dye Dress in a very striking blue. This is a fun and yet chic two-fer dress which features a dip-dye treatment on a sequined bust. I am so loving all the sequin designs this season! Don’t you? This dress includes an elastic banded empire waist for maximum comfort, with a tiered mesh skit. Match this up with a pair of leggings and some high heeled pumps and you’re good to go! If this blue is a bit too bold for you, this dress is also available in black, and retails at $57.00.

Now let’s have a look at the very different Silky Sweet top, a silky sating blouse with a delicate crochet neck trim on a charming geomtric ditsy print. This top features a satin riboon tie-back to give you added shape and fit. A perfect choice for Spring. This top is also available in black, and costs $34.00.

And so is the gorgeous plum colored Crochet Kurti top. This tunic length cotton blouse, features 3/4 sleeves and great detail. The crochet lace bust trim covers an already shirred and pin tucked bust, a very slimming effect. Floral cut outs are included both on the cuffs and the bottom he,, match with subtle embroidery patterns on top, completing this casual and yet very detailed blouse. One of my favorites from Missphit’s new offerings I must say. This top is available also in white, and costs $44.00.

The second top from the right is the cool and white Crochet Charm top. Again this top features great detail in its design. This is in fact a two piece tank with a charming crochet floral lcae bust and detailed pin-tucked bottom bodice. A separate tone on tone chiffon tank lining underneath completes this super chic look. This style also come in cream, and retails at $36.00.

Finally on the extreme right of the picture, you can see the bold Buckle Body Dress in black. This is a knitted sweater body dress with faux belt and stylish tone on tone leather buckle. This is what I call fabulous comfort. This dress is also available in ivory and currently retails at $46.00.

All these items are available in sizes 1X to 3X, and you can check out Missphit’s size chart to see where you fit in these sizes. Missphit’s sizing is quite generous, so do not get discouraged when you see that these are available only until size 3X.

The Best Brands of Plus Size Jackets for Women

Quilted Jacket by Alain WeizIn the world of fashion, style is not a size but a statement. The winter season is an excellent time to explore new styles and trends to find something unique to add to your wardrobe. A winter coat or jacket is a must have as the weather begins to cool down leaving a crisp chill in the autumn air.

For plus size women there are an array of choices when it comes to choosing a coat or jacket. While there are numerous brands to choose from there are several brands that stand out from the crowd and clearly understand what a plus size woman is looking for when it comes to lasting style and fabulous trends.

Alain Weiz
A fun and funky style that will appeal to women looking for fashion with an edge. The Quilted Jacket by Alain Weiz boasts a removable faux fur collar, chic cuffs and a cinched belt at the waist.

Marina Rinaldi
The Delinda Angora coat by Marina Rinaldi is a classic coat with a twist. This angora, wool and cashmere coat comes in a beautiful fuchsia pink color and cinches at the waist with stunning bow type belt. This jacket is not only cozy and warm but visually stunning as well.

Roaman’s is one of the most fashionable brands catering to a wide variety of plus sizes and shapes. Their line of winter coats and jackets is not to be missed. From classic long wool blend coats to cropped faux fur jackets and multi pleat swing coats this brand has a coat that will suite any woman’s style and budget.

Lane Bryant
The Icon Collection Long Riding Coat is a chic coat the emphasized the beauty of curves. Made of twill material the fresh lines of this coat are dramatic and flattering. The Velvet Peacoat is a sweet yet classic princess style cut which compliments many different shapes and sizes. The coat comes in two distinct colors including bright purple or dark blue and is made of a lush velvety material with cuffed sleeves and a center back pleat.

The key to shopping for plus size coats and jackets is to avoid baggy or shapeless clothing. Take the time to find an item of clothing that will accentuate your positive features. Try a classic line that hugs the body or a coat that cinches at the waist.

For style and flair choose a jacket that comes in a bold color to make it pop. If color is not your thing and you prefer black, cream or taupe try to find a coat that has a textured element. Other unique accents include fancy cuffs, wide lapels, faux fur or fancy belt.

Style is an expression of your inner self – don’t settle for anything less than a coat that makes you feel as fabulous on the outside as you are on the inside.
