Designers like Liz Claiborne, Jones New York, Ellen Tracy, Adrienne Vittandini, Givenchy, and other top names are now making great clothes for plus sizes, giving women the best options ever for looking wonderful. But the real secret to looking attractive, well dressed, and confident - no matter what your size - is choosing the right styles and silhouettes for your body type, coloring, and personality. In Plus Style, Suzan Nanfeldt, a leading consultant in plus-size fashion, provides you with the know-how to look well dressed and self-assured. She takes you step-by-step through the essential process of analyzing your unique proportions, body type, and wardrobe needs. She gives you frank, unerring advice on every item in your wardrobe: bras, slips, dresses, suits, coats, jewelry, shoes, slacks, bathing suits - and more. You will learn the basics of image and body type; your best colors - and the trick to wearing any color well; how to choose the right accessories for that finishing touch; how to mistake-proof your shopping so that you get both quality and fit; to use face shape and makeup to enhance or dramatize your look; and where to find hundreds of plus-size designers, catalogs, outlets, and other shopping resources.
