Plus Size Fashions: Fashion isn’t Just for Skinny People


Try stopping by your local outlet mall—Off 5th, the Saks Fifth Ave Outlet, has an amazing selection of designer plus-size fashions from Donna Karan, Oscar De La Renta and Anne Klein. And check out stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom,Bloomingdales, and Macy’s; they all have very hip plus-size departments. The plus-size departments at Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s usually have the best sales, while Saks Fifth Avenue has more cutting-edge fashions and higher-end designers.

Remember that you can be a fashionista regardless of your size. Don’t let pop culture’s ridiculous fashion caste system dictate what you can and can’t wear. Armed with a heaping dose of self-confidence, a purse full of common sense and the rules above, you’re well on your way to becoming a true fashionista.

    I love Fashion Just isn’t for skinny people.  I myself have always been a plus size and always will be.  I now have a daughter who is 6 and is also going to be a plus size.  You article is great and very inspiring to me.  Thanks so much for the low rise pants sections as well.  I see so many people who should not be wearing them, but have them on.  I will pass on your website and the article to my other plus size friends.  Once again Thank you.

    Great article. I am a plus-size momma who has style. I get so frustrated sometimes when I am shopping, because I have no problem finding the clothing with no shape, no style and designed to be worn by my grandmother. I love it when I can find the items that are similar to those that I find in fashion mags. P.S. when will they stop making tops with horizontal stripes??
