2010 plus size spring fashion is a breath of fresh air. More than ever, dark and bulky clothing for big girls are a faux pas. This year, designers created items that remind us of the sun and femininity.
Floral designs are back in a big way. Before you gasp, understand that their interpretation onto clothing is different this year. Raised rosettes are lining the front of shirts and jackets. The look is very girlish without all of the hassle.
The passion many fashionistas had for winter metallic sweaters is carrying over into 2010 plus size spring fashion. The only difference is that this time around the shimmer was put mainly on accessories. Metallic purses, shoes and jewelry are the new way to make a boring outfit shine and pop.
Animal prints have always been a mainstay in fashion for women. Yet, for 2010 plus size spring fashion, the prints are more exotic. Instead of the usual zebra patterns, the going one is snake. For this reason, the colors are more varied offering a woman a choice to standout without being gaudy.
Finding black this spring won’t be so easy. The notion that women with curves look better in dark tints has gone away. What’s come in its place? Bright, bright, bright colors. Shoppers can find every shade from lilac to orange this season. Those women who are worried about a few bumps here and there can wear their Spanx.
The country was put back into fashion for larger than life gals through denim capris with cuffed (rolled up) bottoms. These pants can be dressed up or down with flats, tees or high heels. As a result, the cuffed look is one of the more versatile ones of the season.

The tankini (tank top and bottom) is all the rage in 2010 plus size spring (swim) fashion. This year, the straps are thinner and bosom layered with ruffles. The look is definitely more feminine – a win-win for any female trying to impress onlookers at the beach. These tankinis also come in brighter colors like lime green. So, anyone who wants to make a big splash at the pool can with an unavoidable color.
