      The plus-size fashion industry is in an awakening period, as more designers and clothes manufacturers realize the appeal of (and market for) gorgeous plus-sized clothing. It’s an exciting time to be a plus-sized woman, and it’s the perfect time to make that great outfit just right with great accessories. Below, you will learn exactly how you can accessorize your clothes to best accentuate your beautiful body.


      Start with your ears. Finding the perfect earrings to match your outfit is essential. In general, gold tends to go best with dark colors, and silver is perfect for pastels. You can wear offbeat colored jewelry when you are dressed down. Pick the outfit and then find the earrings that will accentuate the beauty of you and your clothes. You want people to notice your face first, so bigger earrings are best for the plus-sized figure.  


      Choose a necklace for the day or night. Keep in mind that some clothes are best worn without necklaces. Avoid wearing necklaces if your shirt is “busy,” that is, if it has too much of a pattern or design going on. Lace tops and turtlenecks generally need no necklace.  


      Decide if your outfit could be enhanced by a pin or brooch. If simplicity is key in your outfit, it probably could use some spicing up. For plain outfits with solid colors, match up a necklace and pin. This can add elegance and glamor to an otherwise very simple ensemble.  


      Walk in front of the mirror. Watch yourself and how the outfit looks on you when you move. Figure out what looks good and point out what is unflattering to yourself. Even beloved outfits can have unflattering points. Fix those bad points with accessories. For instance, if your shirt has a bit too much material and, in the movements you tried out, often gives the illusion that your stomach is protruding, you can use a scarf or makeshift belt to create a flattening effect. You have just made your outfit all that much more flattering.  


      Pick a bracelet when wearing short sleeves. A bracelet is very flattering to the arm, and attention that is brought upon the arm will focus on the end of the sleeve and the pretty bracelet that decorates your wrist.
