Mom Fashion Alert: Does Size Really Matter?

Mom Fashion Alert: Does Size REALLY Matter?

The good news is, not always.

I received an email 2 weeks ago that got me thinking… I was asked not to share her name, but she told me I could share her email:

Audrey –

I love all the summer fashions that are out there, but they all seem like they are for women who are a size 2. I am not a size 2, more like a size 12! I was wondering if you could ever do post about some summer fashion items or trends where size doesn’t matter.

Thank you.

I loved this email because it got me thinking about the summer trends and what could work for every woman – regardless of shape, size or height.

Here are 10 Summer Trends that would work for EVERY WOMAN (and places to buy them!):

1. Maxi Dress – The beauty of a Maxi is that they work on any body type, size doesn’t matter.  It’s the perfect go-to dress for the summer months.

2. Batwing Top – I love Batwing tops because they are so chic and trendy and can be worn with a variety of different bottoms – jeans, skirts, capris, etc.

3. Straw Fedora – I love a perfect summer hat! The Straw Fedora is the “it” hat to have throughout the summer months!

4. Flower Pins – Florals are such a hot trend right now! Bring in some beautiful flowers with some gorgeous pins and clips! They are the fabulous accessory!

5. Tunics – I love tunics because you can adjust them with belts and sashes to make them as loose and/or tight as you want to go. They also go beyond your hip, which is a very flattering look with capris and leggings for the summer.

  1. The one time size matters? Is if you’re buying the wrong size for you! There are too many great pieces out there to settle for something that doesn’t work.

    And I think we all need to remember that clothing sizes are like age – nothing but a number. 🙂

  2. Well, clothing sizes are actually more than just “a number” I mean yes there is vanity sizing and sizes are inconsistent from store to store. But the issue I’m talking about is that if you are wearing a large size it can correspond with health and wellness issues, which DO matter. I believe we should accept people no matter what size. and that there should be stylish clothing options for every size, but people do need to know that being a larger size does have the potential to “mean something” as far as your health.
