Shopping for plus size fashion can sometimes pose to be difficult. Add to that, the fact that you’re 40 plus, and you’ve brought in an additional shopping dilemma. With the strides that we have made with many clothing brands making plus size fashion inclusive, it can still be a struggle to find trendy age appropriate plus size fashion.
Some of my favorite trendy stores have a great selection of clothing that reveal a little more skin than I would like to show. Nothing wrong with a cute cropped sweater, but you may not want every sweater in your wardrobe to be cropped or off the shoulder.
I want to look trendy and rock the latest fashions, but at the same time, I want to keep it age appropriate. Sure at 45, I could wear the same outfit as a 25 year old, but some of the items that we may have worn without question at age 25, may not necessarily fit our lifestyle once we’re over 40.
There is definitely a way to take today’s trends and style them for any age. While many plus size retailers and online boutiques target a demographic for women under 30, I have put together my top 5 places to shop for plus size fashion for women over 40.
Here are the top 5 places to shop plus size fashion for women over 40
City Chic– City Chic will outfit you with everything from work wear to after five dinner parties. From sleek leathers to distressed denims, City Chic offers a wide range of items to spruce up your Fall wardrobe. They also have a sophisticated lingerie line for those “special”, special occasions.
Macy’s– This oldie but goodie is a great place to shop for your attire if you are seeking designer fashions. Their plus size line includes items from popular designers such as Seven7, DKNY, and Calvin Klein.
LOFT– I don’t know anyone who wasn’t excited when Loft announced their new plus size line. Loft is a classic staple that has been around for a while, but until recently, their greatness stopped at size 18. The new plus size line offers the same classic everyday attire that you are used to from Loft. While the plus selection originally launched exclusively online, it is now also available in select stores.
Asos– For that chic editorial look, turn to Asos. They have everything from casual fashion to formal wear. If you are searching for a fierce girls night out outfit that will turn heads, look to Asos first.
Eloquii– This retailer definitely understand how to effortlessly combine classy, trendy and chic with plus size. From their Premier work wear line to their stunning outerwear, Eloquii has changed the game when it comes to plus size fashion. They have styles ranging from classic to unique. I love that you won’t see their fashions on every other plus size website that you click on. They also offer a great selection of wide width shoes.
