Real World Folkloric Fashion Trend for Plus Size Women

Yeah, baby! Here are some examples of fakey, non-real-world models in the UK and in France who are wearing real-world folk-ish-inspired fashions. (The models are fakey and non-real BECAUSE they are models, but the clothing is real-world stuff that anyone can afford.)

The first outfit is a dress with oversized embroidered folk motifs, but it doesn't look like HeidiVille because the pattern is oversized and the model's not wearing braids. The second and the fourth outfits have embroidery that looks like it came from some Polish village, but these outfits look hip and up-to-date and summery. The third outfit isn't embellished with embroidery, but it has bright florals on a black background, which is... as we all know... the iconic essence of down-home homemade folklore fashions. And, when this chick wears that mini with leggings, it updates everything so much that she could wear SuzyCreamcheese braided pigtails and a flower wreath in fuchsia and she still wouldn't look like she should be yodeling.

What to Buy Right Now

I don't know when you're going to read this awesome article, but if it's during spring of 2013, you might want to check out these items:folk style fashion boho for older women

Other things to look for are Johnny Was tunics, anything embroidered, and stuff in bright florals on a white or dark background. This folk-clothing stuff has been in style for centuries. It's not going to go out of fashion any time soon. Just don't let me catch you wearing a dirndl unless you've decided to moonlight as a waitress at the Hofbräuhaus in München... okay?

    Just saw a post with a brunette wearing an embroidered sleeveless tunic in a dark "army green " color with green leggings. I love this outfit. Can you tell me where I might be able to buy it? Thank you!
