Let’s make some way for the plus-size high fashion that is because this year is all about wearing what you love and throwing size standards out of the window. We have seen gorgeous outfits for curvy women in the past, and more is to come for the upcoming year. As 2022 approaches, we figured that all those beautiful plus-size ladies out there would want to step into the next year with some style. While 2021 was all about comfort wear and casual chic due to lockdowns, the upcoming year will be about getting back to normal. Therefore, expect a comeback from many high fashion trends, while we’ll also see some unique fusions of comfort wear and ultra-modern looks. What are you waiting for? Let’s get to it!
Long Dresses for the Win
What did we learn from the past year? That it’s about rocking simple looks instead of going for ill-fitted short dresses. Many curvy ladies make the mistake of wearing tight clothes just to follow the trend. However, the right approach is to go with well-fitted garments such as long maxi and midi dresses. For instance, colorful pastel long dresses are fantastic for tackling a hot summer day. When we talk about the plus size dresses for 2022, we aren’t going for the same old black maxis and dark colors. The following year is all about embracing the bright colors with clashing prints combined with the tulle and extensive patterns. We have maxi dresses, off-the-shoulder, floral dresses, and the stripe maxis trending for 2022.
Skirts, Whether High or Low
Even though pants are every woman’s go-to choice, but skirts are becoming an attractive option, especially for curvy ladies. Whether it’s high-waisted or knee short, skirts are a versatile piece of clothing that can work with almost every type of blouse and top. We recommend trying out high-waisted skirts with crop tops, full-sleeve blouses, and tucked-in button-down shirts for the coming season. High-waisted skirts are an excellent choice for toning the waist area. A belt or ribbon at the waist can complete the look. Your wardrobe should have skirts of various lengths, such as midi skirts, A-line, knee-length, and asymmetrical skirts.
Say Yes to Pantsuits
Why do curvy celebrities love to wear pantsuits on the red carpets? That’s because it looks luxurious, rich, high fashion, and elegant on plus-size ladies. Pantsuits offer a great blend of fancy looks that you can wear at a formal event. You can opt for many styles, such as a double-breasted blazer with a sultry deep V-neck plunge with a bralette. You can also try vibrant colors like neon, orange, and yellow, especially if you match the blazer with a matching wide belt. Don’t forget to pair the right accessories with your pantsuits like statement earrings, stylish purses, sneakers, and strappy heels.
Rock Bold Prints
Let’s leave the outdated trend of “heavy women should wear darker prints” behind, and step into the upcoming year with a bang. You can go for polka dots, shimmery shades, floral prints, stripes, animal prints, and more. You can also choose a striking mustard yellow floral print maxi over your old little black dress. In addition, check and plaid are also making their way into 2022 with the modern twists. We are also seeing many graphic tees, trousers, and even jackets that are trending these days. Therefore, having one of these will make up an edgy street fashion look. Suppose you are trying to go for a mix and match patterned look. In that case, you can try pairing up your favorite polka dot or floral off-the-shoulder top with snake-print trousers or a skirt along with a striped coat and slouchy boots.
Knitwear is Still in
Whether it’s sweaters, cardigans, or dresses, knitwear is here to stay, and it looks as chic as ever. Since we are enjoying the chilly weather at the moment, why not start your winter season with knitwear, long dresses, turtlenecks, and sweaters? Knitted suits, blouses, jumpsuits, coats, and cardigans look gorgeous, especially on plus-size ladies. They are curve-hugging and look incredibly cozy as well. We recommend rocking your turtleneck with high-waisted pencil skirts or baggy pants paired with a statement overcoat and combat boots. Cropped cardigans are also in, and there is no reason why only Kendell Jenner should rock that look.
Casual Trench and Oversized Jackets
When we see the likes of Hailey Bieber rocking casual faux leather trench, we think, why not curvy ladies give this trend a try? That’s why we believe that you should keep not only one or two stylish trench coats in your wardrobes but also oversized jackets as well. Oversized clothing is the new trend, so join the bandwagon and rock a hipster look with oversized denim jackets, leggings, and ankle boots. You can also go for a hoodie under the jacket look that various high-profile celebrities adopt as their go-to street look. Pair your coats and jackets with suitable tops, straight pants, or flowy skirts, and you are good to go.
Puff Sleeves Are Trending
Let’s face it; we were never going to say goodbye to puffy sleeves or ruffles ever. Puffed sleeves are back with a bang, and they look more gorgeous than ever on curvy women. Whether it’s full puffy sleeves on a crop top or off-the-shoulder ruffles on a maxi dress, they make every outfit look classy and sexy. Puffy sleeves look beyond amazing, especially with a modern twist, such as billowing sleeves on pleated shirtdresses or balloon sleeves on a sweater. Therefore, put on your larger-than-life sleeve dress and step into 2022 with style.
We enjoyed comfortable and lazy looks in 2021, and now it’s time to bring some street and runway fashion style back into our lives. Since we are all focused on body positivity and high fashion clothes for all sizes, we thought, why not compile a list that helps curvy ladies keep up with fashion trends for 2022? Therefore, stop wearing your same old oversized clothes and dress up to flaunt your curves. Take inspiration from our latest trends and get styling.
