As always, the fashion industry is way ahead of the rest of us which means we can already take a look at the 2019 fashion trend forecast. As 2018 comes to a close, some styles will be retired, others will stick around, and some new trends will be popping up.

Could your current wardrobe use an upgrade? The new year is an excellent time to take inventory of what you already have and get rid of things you don’t wear so that you have room for new pieces.

For many women, the constant evolution of fashion can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Don’t feel like you need to hop on board with every single new fashion trend out there. Instead, try out a few new things and see what you like. Not sure where to start? No worries! Get to know the ten 2019 fashion trends for plus-size women we’re loving, and think about adding a few items to your shopping list.

10 Fashion Trends for Plus-Size Women in 2019

2019’s spring and summer seasons are still a few months away, but that doesn’t mean it’s too soon to start planning for a shift in your wardrobe. But as a curvy woman, what pieces and styles should you be incorporating into your look in the coming year? Consider these ten 2019 fashion trends for plus-size women as a cheat sheet for what’s to come.

1. Monochrome Outfits

New York Fashion Week hinted that monochrome outfits might be trending in the coming year. This means matching the color of your pants or skirt to your top and jacket –– maybe even your clutch or handbag too. You can play it safe with this 2019 fashion trend by sporting an all-gray, all-tan, or all-black ensemble, or you can make a statement with a bolder hue like purple, blue, or red. Some call this trend “matchy-matchy” which has been criticized in past years, but it looks like 2019 is the year that’s reclaiming it. A monochrome outfit should be a relatively simple trend to experiment with because planning out your ensemble won’t take a lot of thought! It’s super easy to create a plus-size monochrome outfit with items from Perfectly Priscilla. We carry endless solid clothing items including dresses, shirts, pants, leggings, sweaters, and outerwear.

2. Neon

Brightly charged colors are going to light up 2019. But don’t panic, because neon tones, especially the classic highlighter yellow, are actually more versatile than you may think. If you’re ready to dive in with this fashion trend, you can wear jeans, skirts, dresses, and tops in neon colors or play around with vibrant accessories. Neons are expected to be seen in the coming months in not just yellow, but a variety of tones including orange, green, fuschia, and electric blue. This 2019 fashion trend looks great on curvy gals and can be incorporated into just about any look, include daytime or evening wear. If you’re looking to experiment with this upcoming trend, check out our plus-size clothing boutique. PPB offers plus-size items in neon hues and other bright shades that can add a little something extra to your wardrobe.

3. Beige

The color beige is quite the opposite of neon, but it looks like it will be a shade to look out for in 2019. This subtle hue will make its comeback in a number of variations including tan, camel, taupe, nude, and khaki. For plus-size women, we love the upcoming beige trend worn in a monochrome outfit or with various clothing items or accessories on their own. If you tend to dress modestly and are comfortable in neutral colors, this will be an effortless trend to pull off. If you’re used to wearing more bold attire, keep an open mind because this latte-colored look is anything but bland. You can find lots of beige fashion items made specifically for full-figured women at Perfectly Priscilla. Some of our favorite pieces to wear in the trendy buff tone include ponchos, basic knit tops, leggings, ankle booties, and pumps.

4. Fringe

Fringe has been trending in the fashion world since the fall, and we’re happy to tell you that it’s here to stay, at least through the spring and summer of 2019. From ponchos, cardigans, and jackets to purses, scarves, and jewelry, this western trend can be worn on statement pieces or with more subtle details. Fringe is a throwback trend that’s far from new, but it looks like 2019 is the year to remix it with a modern take. It’s all about adding movement and dimension to your look. Whether you go straight for a fringe maxi dress or try out some earrings first, you really can’t go wrong with this upcoming fashion trend. At Perfectly Priscilla, we are big fans of fringe, especially when it comes to plus-size fashion. You can always find clothing, accessories, and jewelry with fringe detailing at our online boutique.

5. Puffed Shoulders

Puffed shoulders are back for 2019 attire, and at Perfectly Priscilla, we love this look on plus-size women. With a nod to ‘80s fashion, puffed shoulders and sleeves can be worn on shirts, dresses, and jackets. This style can balance out a pear-shaped frame or accentuate the curves of an hourglass figure. If you think this retro look is goofy, think again. Puffed shoulder detailing adds just the right amount of drama to an outfit while still giving off a confident, girly vibe that can be worn day or night. PPB offers lots of on-trend plus-size clothing with puffed shoulders. Some of our favorite styles include cropped jackets, cocktail dresses, and open-shoulder tunics.

6. Tie-Dye

One of our favorite 2019 fashion trends is tie-dye because it’s nostalgic, cheerful, and can be worn by anyone. The world of fashion can be a bit stuffy, so this sunny, feel-good trend is really a breath of fresh air. This vintage trend takes us back even further than the ‘80s to the groovy vibes of the 1960s hippie era. When you think of tie-dye, you might think of old faded t-shirts that need to be thrown out, but believe it or not, this print can be totally chic. Also, tie-dye doesn’t need to be worn in rainbow shades. If you want to start out slow with this trend, try a scarf or shirt in a monochrome tie-dye print.

7. Leopard Print

At Perfectly Priscilla, we absolutely love leopard print and are thrilled with the news that it’ll be trending in 2019. This print looks amazing on plus-size women. It can be worn day or night to both casual and fancy events. Also, you can find endless leopard print pieces for your wardrobe not only in plus-size clothing, but shoes, outerwear, and accessories too. Leopard is sassy, flattering, and sophisticated. This pattern is much more versatile than you may think. Leopard conveniently matches with both black and brown and can be worn with brighter hues, but we especially adore it when it’s combined with pieces from this year’s beige trend. Wear it to the office, on a date, to a party, or just around the house. As one of our all-time most loved prints for plus-size women, Perfectly Priscilla offers an impressive collection of leopard print attire and accessories. We adore the look of leopard print bodycon dresses and pumps for evening wear as well as cozy sweaters, leggings, and flats for more casual outfits.

8. Sequins

The holidays might be over, but that doesn’t mean the fashion world is ready to retire sequins yet. This trend is here to stay well beyond sparkly New Year’s Eve cocktail dresses, so don’t push your sequin items to the back of your closet just yet. At Perfectly Priscilla, we think there’s always a place for sequins in fashion, no matter what time of year it is, so we’re excited to see where this trend goes in 2019. For the spring and summer, you’ll be seeing sequins and sparkly pieces on lighter materials for a seasonally appropriate look. To find trendy sequin items at affordable prices, check out Perfectly Priscilla’s online boutique. We carry dresses, tops, shoes, and accessories with just the right amount of shimmer.

9. Printed Scarves & Headwear

When it comes to accessorizing in 2019, printed scarves and headwear are a trend you won’t want to miss. Retro-inspired silky printed scarves can be worn around your neck, wrapped into your hair, tied around your wrist or handbag for a cute, effortless detail. You can buy new printed scarves this year or find some at a vintage shop. The best part about this forecasted 2019 fashion trend is that it’s completely budget-friendly and can be worn by any woman, no matter your size. PPB offers soft, printed scarves that can be tied around your neck or hair for added warmth and textures for an effortless fashion statement.

10. Statement Hats

2019 is the year to experiment with statement hats. The fashion trend forecast predicts that some bold styles will be making their debut while several others will be making a comeback. Veiled hats and beekeeper hats were flaunted at New York Fashion Week which may be tougher to wear off the runway. However, some more practical hat styles were seen as well including baseball hats, visors, knit hats, bucket hats, wide-brim hats, and oversized sun hats. Try on a few styles and see what looks best on you.
