Trend to Try - White on White (Plus Size Options)

As long as I can remember, I've been told that wearing an all-white look, especially as a curvy girl, was absolutely out of the question.  Instead, I've been steered toward black because of its slimming effect.  However, the presence of all-white looks on this season's runways has piqued my interest in wearing white from head to toe.  While I realize that white may not be as forgiving as black, the cut, fit and quality of the garment can make all the difference.

Below,  I've compiled a variety of amazing plus-size white pieces that should make trying this trend super easy.

Announcement: theCURVYcon is coming to the Metropolitan Pavillon West in New York City on June 20th and I couldn't be more excited.  If you haven't already heard, theCURVYcon is a one-day event focused on embracing all things curvy.  Not only will you be able to shop with some of your favorite plus-size brands, you'll also be able to attend panels with some of your favorite YouTubers, bloggers, and fashionistas, who will be discussing topics such as body positivity, confidence, fashion and style, health, fitness, dating, and more.  What's even more exciting is that the keynote speaker will be Dancing With the Stars champion and Glee actress Amber Riley!

15 Plus-Size Jumpsuits for Spring/Summer

Warm weather is finally approaching here in New York and I couldn't be more excited.  I don't know about you, but I've been dying to wear short skirts, off-the-shoulder-blouses, and, of course, jumpsuits.

While I usually gravitate toward rompers (loving this one at the moment), this season I am hoping to find the perfect jumpsuit to suit my shape, which has been challenging in the past.  However, I've found some really cute options at ASOS, Macy's and Nordstrom, which I have listed below, that I just may try.  My favorites are the ING Printed jumpsuit (1st row - middle) and the City Chic Polka Dot jumpsuit (4th row - left). Which jumpsuit is your favorite?
