Plus Size Fashion at Target: Fall 2008

Finding plus size fashion that’s actually, well, fashionable, is always a challenge—but fortunately for us, a handful of budget-friendly retailers are starting to get the picture. Target, of course, is one, and this fall they’ve got plenty of trendy/stylish pieces to pick from, in sizes 16W-30W.

Some tips for wearing the pieces to their best advantage, couresty of Target:

~ Printed, voluminous tops are updated for fall and elongate the torso when paired with simple bootcut black trousers.

~ A deep scoopneck tank draws attention upward and looks flattering when layered with a cozy cardigan and slimming dark denim.

~ Empire waistlines create a slim silhouette, and sequin embellishments add just the right amount of glitz and glamour for a look that is feminine and chic.

~ Pleated button-down blouses in pretty jewel tones minimize the midsection and are universally flattering on a curvy figure.
