Fall Fashion Trends

Temperatures have dropped, leaves have changed, Canadian Remembrance Day and U.S. Thanksgiving are coming up; and that means it's time to show off new fall trends while we celebrate with friends and family. Here are four fashionable ideas to inspire some of your holiday outfits

1. Mad for Plaid
Plaid is a quintessential fall wardrobe staple, but most of us want to keep plaid more fashion than lumberjack. To avoid looking like your ready to chop down some trees, pair a cute plaid button down with your favorite pair of jeans, jeggings, or leggings. For a little more flair add a cute vest and pair of boots, maybe even a scarf or amazing pair of earrings, and you're ready to take on fall in style.
2. Cute Coats
Dropping temperatures means a need for cute outerwear. Coats have come a long way from just being a necessity to stay warm to a multipurpose fashion statement. Leather, fur, cashmere, felt, and denim are all amazing options for beautiful coats, as well as both faux fur and faux leather. My personal favorite trend this fall is the teddy bear coat; plush, cozy, and oh so warm. A teddy bear coat in an eye-catching color guarantees you'll stay warm and stand out in the best possible way.
3. Sweater Weather
My favorite part of fall is the sweaters. I am a slave to sweaters of all kinds; hoodies, zip ups, pull overs, they are the best part of my personal wardrobe. Beautiful pullovers with an attractive print or stripe pattern are especially trendy right now, but an attractive solid color is timeless and attractive as well. Like coats, sweaters are also available in a wide variety of materials, making it easy to find your perfect style and comfort level.
4. Dress to Impress
If you have a more formal celebration coming up, a belted dress in a thick material is the perfect choice. The thick material with keep you warm and smooth your shape, while the belt with define your waist, leaving you with curves for days. A solid color dress in a deep, autumnal color will make you the center of attention at any event you attend.

Fat Positive Blogs

Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.

I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.

Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.

Here is a list of some fat positive blogs that might help you on your journey:
