The spring summer Style Study tour has been amazing. I have had the awesome pleasure of meeting so many wonderful customers. There has been lots of laughter, smiles, questions, comments and occasionally tears of joy. I love when you come in for the consultation with an open mind and decide that today I am going to try on something new and exciting, or something that I have not worn in a really long time. During this tour I found that a lot of ladies stopped wearing dresses and skirts for many reasons. Some of you have told me that dresses and skirts are too difficult to wear, they are uncomfortable, there’s too much preparation, and they just don’t work for you. The best moment is that once I talk you into trying on just one skirt or dress, you suddenly feel the ease and you realize how much a dress really accentuates the best of your curves. By the second try, you are ready to “Say yes to the dress!”
This is a great season for plus-size dresses and skirts at Penningtons, there is a dress and a skirt to flatter every figure. The printed ponte shift dress, the belted maxi dress and my favorite the DVF inspired wrap dress. I love the wrap dress because the v-neck is a perfect neckline for your favorite pendant necklace or a jeweled statement bib. The adjustable wrap is easy, waist defining and so flattering. The pop of fuschia is a vibrant accent to the classic black and white trend. The length skims the knee and totally reveals the perfect amount of those gorgeous legs. What I know for sure is that this dress works on every figure. If you think that you need back smoothing or support in your mid section I suggest wearing the seamless slip dress underneath to give you a smooth appearance.
Skirts are great for summer. This season we have a variety of styles that you can pair with your favorite t-shirt, billowing blouse, summer knits or a light weight perforated hoody. The savvy stretch pencil skirt is a fitted silhouette and totally flatters your curves. The peasant skirt and the maxi skirt are great alternatives for those that prefer a longer length. Some of you have shared with me that you are hesitant about wearing skirts because you think that they require a lot of preparation regarding footwear and hosiery. That is a very minor styling issue that should not keep you from wearing skirts. The weather is warm so you can opt to keep those legs bare. If you are dressing your skirt down, you can wear your favorite sandals, a pair of flip flops, wedges or an on trend pair of athletic shoes. If you want to dress your skirt up, a peep toe pump, an open toe booty or a high heeled sandal will always work. And if your concerns regarding inner thigh chafing I highly suggest wearing the long leg seamless leg cincher under your skirt.
Lastly if you feel that your legs are a bit pale because you have not had a moment for your legs to get a little sun glow, there are some great liquid bronzers that will give your legs sun kissed hue that you love.
This seasons dresses and skirts are modern, feminine and figure flattering. At Penningtons we want you to continue to say yes to the dress!
