It is always a critical situation when women have to decide what to wear? Whether she is going on a date, dining out with her fiance, have to attend a formal party or even going out for coffee or drinks with friends. We all feel unsure of what to wear but when we are plus size it is even more difficult to make up our mind. The thought of being plus-size takes away our excitement of dressing up.

Before I help you to create your capsule wardrobe, It is important for you to understand, what fashion really is? Or who makes the fashion trends?
What is Fashion
“Fashion is a form of self-expression and autonomy at a particular period and place and in a specific context, of clothing, footwear, lifestyle, accessories, makeup, hairstyle, and body posture.”
By the above definition, your personality, aura and how you look will be your fashion. If I simplify it even further, fashion is what you wear by following the trends established by the industry that looks good on your body type and is comfortable at the same time.
Find your Fashion
How one can find the right fashion for themselves, is a very valid and important question? We are living in a world that is so diverse and unique. And that makes the world so colourful, different and exciting to look at. What if I ask you to put the same formula on yourself. You and your fashion should be determined, first by analysing your physicality, height/size, skin tone and your personal choice of colours, patterns, fabrics, forms and styles.
Secondly, fashion should be adapted to make yourself feel happy, comfortable and pleasant looking. So any fashion trends which make you uncomfortable to follow should be dropped off immediately.
