Trendy Plus Size Blazers

Jessica London Plus Size Houndstooth Blazer

Plus size figures look good in blazers that are open near the throat. The open top of a blazer can be filled in with a scarf if you get cold, or if you want a little contrasting color around your face. This openness near your top gives the visual illusion of making your head and chest area look larger, so if you have a full bottom and combine it will colors and openness near your face, the end result is that you look more proportional, and your middle looks thinner.

Belts are great for plus size women, but they should be worn loosely. You do not need to make your shirt/blouse a corset because there is no reason to hide a full figure. Full figured women have been icons of beauty for hundreds, if not thousands of years, before we started this little blip of thin-obsession in modern history.

The trend will probably roll back in favor of fleshy women, so do not ever feel you have to cover up. Use the belt, but use it to adorn yourself, not to apologize for your body. Belts with buckles and other "hardwear" look great because they emphasize the waist. Contrasting color in a belt is fine if you like it, but using the same color as your blazers works is OK too, especially with a large buckle.
