Hey there curvy girls,

I’m not sure how the weather is where you are but fall is refusing to show its face in NYC. I shall not complain. During the colder weather, we tend to wear darker hues and we forget about being bold and colorful.

This year plaid is one of the hottest trends. For those of you who were fans of the punk era you can now relive and get your fix with the plaid/tartan trend. Plaid is a great print to show off your spunky fashion sense and can easily be incorporated to fit your personal style.

Plaids aren’t just for the lumber jack anymore. It is definitely for that fashionable lady that desires to add some pop to her leather skater skirt. If you’re more of a laid back jeans loving girl, you can also wear a plaid top with skinny jeans and a pair of sexy pumps in an eye catching color like emerald green or a pair of sassy ankle boots.

I’ve come up with two looks on how to pull off the trend in plus sizes:

    Hi Alissa, I really like your blog and this post is also very good. Styling 101 says to never wear patterns on the bottom if you are curvier, but I think it should say…never wear patterns on the bottom if you don’t like adding volume and bringing positive attention to your curves. Hips and curves are not evil and I really like the fact that your blog tackles this issue so stylishly! I’m also in the blogher community, I’m a lefthanded disability fashion journalist (I made the name up myself to reflect my work, I look at all things fashion through the lens of disability. I’m bookmarking your blog and I will be referring my readers to check it out!
