30 May Fashion Trends for All Body Types

If there was one thing that you could change about your body, what would it be?  There are actually a large number of people who would like to change more than just one thing.

There are many who say that they are too skinny, others who claim that they are too large, some claim that their cleavage is too big or too small, and others who would change the size of their butts. Unfortunately, not everyone has the money needed to get cosmetic surgery and not everyone has the time needed to devote to an exercise plan.  This is what results in many people feeling hopeless, as if things will never change.  However, there is good news, while you may not necessarily be able to change the way that your body is, you may be able to “change,” the way that it looks. You can do this with fashion.

Unfortunately, when it comes to fashion and fashion trends, many people believe that fashion trends are only for those who have “perfect bodies,” notably models.  The truth is that nobody is perfect and that’s why fashion trends are more than just for those who are considered perfect.  What you may not realize is that fashion comes in all different sizes, shapes, and styles.  There are fashion trends that exist for individuals of all different sizes and shapes.


The “Petite” Body Type –
If you are small in size, height wise, you may be considered petite.  When it comes to petite clothing, there is a whole line of clothing that is designed for those with petite body frames.  The clothes are often designed so that pants to do not drag on the floor and so forth.  Petite clothing come in all different formats from swimwear to work wear. The following are a few tips for you frame:

1. Compact Handbags:

For a petite women, an oversized handbag can overwhelm your figure. Luckily for you, compact handbags are having a trending moment right now. A small handbag looks much better proportioned than an oversized ‘it’ bag, and looks simply chic!

2.Peplum Waists

You can easily work the peplum trend, no matter what height you are. When looking at this fall fashion trend, especially for short women, just focus on where the peplum detail sits. If you’re on the shorter side of things, keep the peplum detail around the waist. Anything lower, like a dropped-waist peplum dress, can swamp down your figure.

3.Cropped Jackets

When it comes to outerwear one of the big runway trends is oversized coats. Instead of overwhelming your figure in an oversized coat, try an equally on-trend cropped jacket instead. This fall look for cropped jackets in tweed or light leather. Wear them with cute printed dresses and high waisted skirts or trousers for a stylish look.


The “Athletic” Body Type –
If you are athletic or active, you may have an athletic body frame or appearance.  This is often one that is muscular in nature or toned and fit.  Unfortunately, not all women’s clothing is designed for individuals like you. That is why there are clothing lines that are designed especially for active women and women built like you.  In addition to traditional exercise clothing and casual clothing, it is more than possible to find elegant eveningwear that is designed to complement your fit and athletic body frame.

1. Stripes

Add stripes to your wardrobe with some horizontal lines and patterns. A-line dresses or skirts help create the illusion of a waist and hips.

2. Halter-neck Tops

Emphasise your bust with halter-neck tops.

3. Detailing

Tops and shirts with breast pockets or detailing add volume to your top half. Pleats, ruffles and pattern will work wonders.


The “Plus Size” Body Type

If you are considered a plus sized individual, you will also find a line of clothing designed just for you. What is nice about plus sized fashions is that they have changed for the better over the years.  It once seemed as if plus sized clothing was designed more for comfort than appearance. While many plus size clothing pieces still have comfort in mind, you may be surprised with the beautiful clothing pieces and accessories that are now available for plus sized women, as well as men.

1. Fit-and-Flare Dress

Many plus-size women have an hourglass shape. Hourglass-shaped women “tend to go for a retro look,” which makes perfect sense. As with a fit-and-flare dress, the silhouette exactly mimics yours. There is full coverage for your curves, and a subtle accent at the waist for definition.

2. The V-neck

Just like the straight-size version, a plus-size busty woman’s largest measurement is across her chest. Her hips and midsection may be curvy, but on a smaller scale. The V-neck top can be daring or demure, depending on how low you dip. Either way, it’s a busty girl’s staple. At its most extreme it can be a cleavage-boosting cut, but a small V can also help elongate your neckline and actually minimize your top.

3. The Tunic

The tunic top is an easy choice for anyone who wants something that won’t cling to her middle. For the apple-shaped who prefer to minimize, it’s an essential.


The above mentioned fashions for petite, athletic, and plus sized women are just a few of the many that exist.  No matter what your size or your body build, you should be able to find beautiful and attractive clothing to fit you and your needs.  If you are looking for more than just beautiful and attractive clothing, but clothing that is considered trendy at the moment, you may want to think about shopping at one of your local shopping malls.  One approach that you may want to take is buying fashion magazines or using the internet to help you researh new, popular fashion trends for those with your body frame or body size.

In short, no matter how big or small you are, you should still be able to dress, look, and feel like a model.  Fashion isn’t just for skinny models anymore; it is for men and women of all different sizes and shapes.
