Spring is still a month or so away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t slowly start breaking into some lighter and brighter clothes. A lot of my plus size readers have been asking me for suggestions for tops that can wear now as they head out on vacation, and to transition into spring. So, here’s what I’ve come up with.
Take a look at these cute finds that are cheery, casual and classy.
1. Palm Perfection
Once spring arrives, I am ready to shed the dark shades of black, brown, and gray for happier colors. The gorgeous mix of shades of green in this cute Vince Camuto blouse are so pleasing. This blouse with drawstring sleeves is great to wear for lunch outdoors on a beautiful spring day.
2. Keep It Under Wraps!
Wrap tops are a favorite among gals over 40. They are flattering, for one. For another thing, they are usually made of a soft cotton fabric making them incredibly comfortable. This printed three quarter sleeve wrap top from Anne Klein features a v-neck and a soft knit to make it a great choice for any occasion.
3. All In Knots
I love this knot front short sleeve tee for occasions when you want to look nice with minimal effort. It’s super soft and comfy. Pair it with jeans or a pair of joggers to run weekend errands. Snap it up now to look fab later.
If you’re going for a head-turning look, this floral off-the-shoulder top is for you. The ruffled sleeves add drama and the shoulder-baring neckline adds allure. This top would be perfect for a girls’ night out on the town.
5. Modern Boho
When you want to wear boho, but don’t want to look like a leftover from the 60s or 70s, go for this embroidered peasant top. It’s a modern update on a favorite classic peasant top.
6. Bold Blue
Blue is poised to be one of spring’s top colors. Pantone’s color selection for 2020 is Classic Blue. This striped handkerchief top is simple but elegant, incredibly comfortable, and delivers a bold shot of blue. This spring wardrobe must-have pairs nicely with dark denim, as shown, but would really go well with white denim also.
7. Give Them The Cold Shoulder!
Flirty and feminine perfectly describes this Karen Kane studded cold shoulder top. You can’t go wrong this spring in this bold blacktop with eye-catching stud detail.
8. The Layered Look
I absolutely love the look of layers but I don’t like the bulk. This pretty v-neck sweater combines delicate lace shirttail and a v-neck inset to create a smooth, layered look without all the unflattering heaviness.
9. “Reddy” For Spring
This red pintuck tunic is relaxed and comfy with its flattering V-neck and billowy sleeves. Pair it with jeans now, and a pair of cool, white pants as temperatures start to rise.
10. Modern Colorblock
Strategically placed colored panels make you look slim and trim. This half-zip, roll-sleeve top with a center color panel creates a slim center line to elongate your torso and make it appear leaner and more narrow. This top is ideal for gals who are wider on top than on the bottom.
