I just read the article for Vogue's June 2011 issue celebrating curvy models.  A trio of plus size beauties posed for the cover and they looked hot!  Plus size models, Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley looked great on the cover and in the spread.  Robin Lawley has actually modeled for our very own Roamans catalogue!  How Vogue of us?! The June cover issue was portrayed by photographer Steven Meisel and the models looked flawless in Givenchy.

Trend Tuesday!!! Tiered Stripes

This season stays inside the lines with vertical, horizontal, black & white, or bold stripes.  The 'it' pattern of the season is STRIPES.  Designers showed across the board from electric to bold to neutral to skinny stripes on the runways.

Roamans has all the 'it' stripes in their plus size assortment this season for all of your fashion needs.

SEASIDE STRIPES... will get you ready for a day at sea inspired by nautical flags and designs. Roamans has a striped seersucker bigshirt which can be paired with the anchor capris shown below, a seersucker striped dress can be worn with some great accessories or the our classic kate bighirt which comes in a multitude of stripes!


EASY TEES....for the fans of the striped tee. Shown below are Roamans' sequin heart stripe tee and the corsage neckline tee.

THE SKINNY....the all-over skinny pattern is a little bit of mod.  Shown below are Roamans' oversized striped top and striped hankie hem cardigan that both have the skinny stripe.

As you can see Roamans gave stripes a modern makeover as spring/summer embraces stripes on plus size dresses, sweaters, tees, and shirts.

Stripes can suit anybody and everybody.

  • Horizontal stripes- can flatter a boyish figure as they can add curves
  • Vertical or diagonal stripes- can elongate the body
  • Narrow stripes- flatter a petite figure
  • Full figure bodies can wear any combination stripes paired with a solid color block hitting the part of your body that you want to diguise 

If you are not sure what stripe to wear, you can always layer it with a plus size cardigan or jacket over the top from Roamans.   These stripes can also make a bold enough statement on their own if you want to channel understated glamour.

Trend Tuesday! Embellished Denim

Last season it seemed as though embellished everything was the trend.  This spring runways were filled embellished denim.  Ralph Lauren and Blue Notch had a combination of sequins and shiny fabric added to denim for a dressier look.  While other designers embellished their denim with studs.

Embellished denim is a hot spring and summer fashion trend that will carry over into the fall makeup fashion season. Roamans has so many  different plus size styles, trends and fits to choose from. Pick the style that fits you best and indulge in a pair of embellished denim jeans. At Roamans you can choose from studded capris, embroidered capris, embellished capris to embroidered jeans, studded jeans ...and many many more plus size embellished denim fashions!

Look for denim with sparkle, metal or dark studded embellishments at cuffs, belt loops or pocket for added appeal. Embellished denim is a great way to dress up a pair of jeans and give them a more decorative and stylish look.  Get yours today @Roamans!

Trend Tuesday! Spring Jackets

Following winter's statement coats are a plethora of signature spring jackets. Some designers like Stella McCartney and Chanel showed the clever boyfriend tailoring or the classic bouclĂ© jacket.  While others like Burberry showed leather jackets or Phillip Lim who showed cape-like over shoulder jackets.

When it comes to outerwear this spring and summer you'll be seeing a bit of everything.  As the sun begins to shine, the weather grows too warm for your winter coat, it's time to bring out your spring and summer essentials.  Roamans has top trends covered in outerwear and jackets for you in plus size!

Roamans has plus size trench coats, parkas, military jackets, denim jackets and much more.  The leather jacket can add a chic look if thrown over your sexy party dress.  I personally love to wear my boyfriend jacket over dresses and button down shirts for dinner and work.  Roamans  gives you a choice of a fall boyfriend jacket and a spring boyfriend jacket, which I love to throw over any outfit! Check out our entire assortment of spring jackets and blazers @Roamans today!

Denim Washes

From denim-on-denim outfits to the ultimate jean jacket, the spring runways were awash with modern updates to the all-American classic. Denim was all over the runways this year from designers like Stella McCartney to D&G to Ralph Lauren.

Roamans has a fabulous plus size denim assortment to get your denim fix in!  Light washes are great for a bohemian look and compliment almost every color. If you've got long legs and you choose a skinny cut, pair your jeans with some great flats. If you're on the shorter side, have no fear...platforms and heels work perfectly.  Dark washes are slimming and can add an evening look to your outfit. 

One of the easiest ways to wear denim is to wear 2 different colors like a chambray shirt and white denim which screams spring and looks so fresh.  You can wear the same color denim on top and bottom just as long as the washes are different.  For example, a light denim shirt with darker jeans or a darker jean jacket.  You can also break up your denim pieces with accessories.  Putting a tee and adding a belt to your outfit will help to avoid look like you're wearing the same color from head to toe.  Roamans also has a plus size denim vest which is a fresh take on the denim jacket for spring.  It can be worn with a tank, a tee or a long sleeve top.

Roamans has over 20 different denim washes all in plus size!  Roamans has everything you need to put your plus size denim pieces together for a great runway denim inspired outfit.  This is the denim year and you don't want to be left behind!

OSP TV - CBS News Segment on Plus Size Industry

CBS news aired a segment on the shift of the plus size clothing market. In the last few months several major retailers have stopped carrying or reduced plus size clothing lines in their stores. This has left the plus size consumer with fewer for plus size clothing options in their local areas.

This segment discusses how now more than ever before, on-line plus size clothing retailers have become important to the plus size consumer. The benefit to the customer is that the plus size clothes offered are specifically designed for the plus size woman's figure, not as an after thought!

What are your thoughts on current plus size clothing market?

OSP TV - Today Show - Fashions that Flatter your figure

This mornings on NBC's Today Show there was a great segment about dressing to flatter your figure! This is one of my personal favorite subjects because so many plus size women hide the parts they should accentuate, often creating the illusion of being larger than they are.

The plus size model was wearing an Avenue by Jessica London smocked blouse and a Jessica London plus size pencil skirt! It is always exciting for us when plus size clothing is featured as part of a fashion segment as we are a significant percentage of the American consumer.

What did you think of the segment?
