Shop: Plus Size Colors and Prints

I think it was plus size rocker and "fat-tivist" Beth Ditto who bemoaned that stylists always wanted to swamp her gorgeous curves in loose layers of drab, dark colors. It's a common "rule" of plus size dressing that black = slimming, but you can also replace 'slimming' with 'boring' or worse, 'depressing'!  

Rules, schmules. Get some vibrant colors and gorgeous prints in your wardrobe (click for some fab inspiration!) -- there's never been a better time to experiment with these than now, with all the photo prints, tribal trends and sumptuous colors rocking the runways. Why not try:

These groovy printed pants are so stylish right now. You can go baby steps by pairing it with a sheer white top or a fitted dark blouse, and as you grow more comfortable you can try contrasting colors or even - gasp! - print-on-print.

This dress' tangerine-and-turquoise hues bring the beach anywhere you go, and that subtle ikat / tie-dye print is so painfully on-trend. All you gotta do is add some chunky jewelry and a messy top knot for major rocking!

Perfect for a date -- this paisley dress accentuates all your curves! Some tottering platform pumps and smokey eyes will amp the sex appeal times ten!

A vibrant hue - like this electric blue - takes a lounge-y kaftan a notch up. Belt it with a pencil skirt and heels for work, or pair with shorts on the weekend - no one will accuse you of schlubbing in this!

Oh, and Plus Size Fasyon Mudra readers can get 5% off all goods when they key in the voucher KatAtienza0 upon check-out. Go go go! Buy buy buy!
