Elegant Plus Editor's Picks:  Romantic Plus-Size Fashion, Size 12 +

Full Retail Prices Listed: Check Links for Current Sales & Mark Downs

All Editor's Picks clothing featured is hand- selected by the Elegant Plus Fashion Editor from our extensive network of fashion business partnerships and available at date of posting.  Please be advised that popular selections can sell out quickly, especially at trendier Fast Fashion outlets. Options are available in all size ranges, although we specialize in hard-to-find sizes 12 and over. 

Elegant Plus Sizing Report  Luxury level plus-size designer clothing is increasingly available, but still difficult to find outside the major department stores.  More moderately priced contemporary designers, diffusion lines, and capsule collections are getting much easier to find and shop.

Gardens in the moonlight offer a magical color palette of delicious purples, deep reds, and teal greens wrapped in velvety black and midnight blues.  Designers are using traditionally rich fall and winter fabrics such as velvet, leather, fur, and suede and mixing them with filmy chiffons and delicate lace to create a romantic, dream-like mood for Fall 2015.

Vintage details run the gamut from 1930's glam to hard hitting Joan Jett 1970's rock-and-roll chic, with a little Stevie Nicks ruffling to soften the edge.  The fantasy of film and television influences are adding to gothic undertones in some pieces, while other vintage cultural fantasy role play trends such as Steampunk can be subtly felt.  The wildly popular and influential Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition that just showed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London is adding resonance on both sides of the Atlantic.

This look is textured and layered, mixing patterns and cuts in inspired combinations.  While some pieces are exclusively for evening wear and special occasions, most work well for day time looks that are both casual and appropriate for less traditional office environments.

Trend conscious looks this year have become long and flowing, playing with layers as the bohemian style has gone mainstream.  Kimono toppers and long cardigans, flowing skirts, and maxi dresses all easily lend themselves to romantic designs.  Filmy chiffon and lace versions, and other light fabrics are particularly effective.

Leather, suede and fur has been a rising trend in recent years.  While classic black leather jackets, leggings, skirts and dresses work well for edgier, smoky translations of the style, colored versions in purples, burgundies, and midnight blues can be a rich and unexpectedly romantic option.

As the weather gets colder and the calendar moves closer to the holiday party season velvets in classic jewel tones will become more readily available and an important part of this trend as it reaches maturity, and full fashion expression.
