Black is a magical colour
Just because black may not be the in colour doesn’t mean sway from the idea of wearing it. Let’s say the new trendy colour that’s in fashion is orange then you work with that colour to get the latest stylish look. Adding accessories to compliment an outfit in this shade then voila, you’re in fashion. Shoes, costume jewellery, scarves, shawls, chokers, gloves, hat or other hair accessories like combs, hair slides, bobbles and scrunches are all fabulous ideas for a fat woman to wear in the shade of orange to bring her black outfit (Trousers, blouse, dress, suit, evening gown) more up to date.
Every fat woman is curvy. Curves become more noticeable wearing the wrong clothes. Work with your curves, and not against them as this will make it difficult to get your desired look.
The vast majority of overweight women assume they can never be fashionable due fatness. How far from the truth this is. Any fat, plump, stout, portly, podgy or tubby woman/young girl can be fashionable-it’s a matter of knowing what chic clothes to wear to slim your appearance, instead of garments that does nothing for your shape and shows every ripple of belly flab around your waist and bum. .
Sadly, not many fat women understand this concept and tend to wear skimpy clothes which make them look hideous. If I’m to be honest dressing this way can make a fat woman look ugly, and I mean this in the nicest possible way. Fat women are beautiful; some obese women have real pretty faces, better than a lot of skinny girls out there. Nevertheless to be body beautiful you have to dress right to achieve this.

The way to avoid being ridiculed for poor fashion sense is by dressing in clothes that suit your shape and size. For instance: Wear a dress/frock that sits below the knee or just above the ankle. Don’t wear garments that cut off at the widest part of the calf. It will make you look stumpy.
High-waist tops are always in style as with the same with leggings. If you’re wearing a dress/ skirt and think it too short and showing too much leg, then wear leggings underneath. Mid-calf leggings are attractive for summer wear; nonetheless big women may want to try this if they are not comfortable with the length of their dress. A black and white print dress, some black leggings with a pair of strappy sandals is a good dressy look. A chunky red or silver bangle will add the finishing touches to the outfit. A big mistake fat women make is trying to look smaller, which is right and expected from them who worry over their shape and size, however it’s best to work with your already size because, it’s less time consuming, less expensive and will still have you looking trendy and fabulous.
Undergarments are important for giving good shape, a well-fitted bra will help you feel and look your best. When you have the feel good factor you will always carry off whatever garment it is you’re wearing.
If possible don’t wear flowing capricious fabrics. Various colors, materials, layers and patterns can make you look heavier and stocky. Colors most fitting are dark grey, deep silver, wine, plum, jade, russet, midnight blue, cocoa and cranberry.
Lengthy straight skirts/dresses elongate the body which in return will have you appear slimmer
Tight is not right. Tight garments shows every bulge even the ones you didn’t know were there. Material sort to wear should be one that skims the contour of your body and not clingy.
Horizontal stripes are out and vertical in for short stout stumpy women.
Dresses or tops with empire waist for the longer look.
Keep shoe color the same as your stylish trendy outfit
Stilettos lengthen the look of legs.
Low necked dresses and long jewelry chains/necklaces help lengthen the look of the neck
Avoid chokers or pole polo neck sweaters this will give you the hunched up look
