Plus-Size Designer Dresses Trends
August 9, 2014

 

The first hints of Fall 2014 are coming into stores right now.  Designer day dresses for career wear are the best represented, but more casual and formal offerings can be found here and there.  The black and white trend that has been popular is extending into the season, with clean black silhouettes moving to the fore.  Spicy red is warming up the color options with hints of cool cobalt blue, magenta purple, and teal green rounding out the palette.

The punk influenced trend from 2013 is becoming more subtle and coming through in hardware and leather trims, and the occasional plaid print.  Pattern is still making a strong showing with some designers choosing to subtly mix prints in a variety of styles ranging from bohemian to contemporary day dresses.

Necklines are remaining high with some illusion sleeve and bodice styles adding vintage appeal. Wrap styles are trending with ruffled, dip hems. Fitted fit and flare styles and body con dresses are still available here and there with easy-to-wear shift silhouettes making a strong showing.

A majority of designer plus-size dresses are available no larger than 24W, although a few independent designers offer larger sizes to 34W.  Click here for shopping resources.   The most recent Elegant Plus Style Editor's Picks are listed below.

are what you are looking forward.  More and more high profile designers are willing to design for plus-sizes, but there are also wonderful smaller boutique plus-size dress designers
that you will want to  try.  Designer plus-size dresses are often classic to contemporary in style with clean modern lines, but a growing number of collections are branching out into
