A fashion forward woman comes in every shape, size, and color. Theary Sim, a fashion stylist turned fashion designer of plus-size clothing line, Youtheary Khmer, offers valuable advice on how a curvaceous woman should sport this season’s trends.
What are your favorite spring trends?
When it comes to spring, I love color and movement. I am excited about printed maxis, lots of sheer, and a crop top never hurt nobody (laughs).
How would you suggest a plus size woman apply these said trends?
When it comes to trends on a plus-size woman, it’s all about fit. Understanding your body helps you know what trends may or may not work. Everyone can wear a maxi but it’s about placement. Be sure to look at wear the waistband falls; it shouldn’t be too low or too high. Right above the naval is perfect placement. This helps shape your body instead of covering your body. When wearing sheer, just know that it is still transparent, so wearing the appropriate undergarments is essential so that it doesn’t look like you are wearing intimates. And of course, the crop top. The best way to wear a crop is making sure that it fits like a top and not a bra. It should still be loose enough to keep everything secure and in place and also compliment your body. If it doesn’t fit correctly, don’t wear it.
