Make Sure That it is the Right Size

The most important step. One must always make sure that their outfit's measurements actually fit them. When you think you have the correct size selected, double check if it will fit your body type and provide you comfort during your chosen special occasion at the same time.

Many people nowadays forget to seek out the practical parts of wearing a formal pants suit, focusing on the design of a suit instead of its wearability. But why pick or focus on just one, when you can have both? One of our plus size formal pant suits, our R&M Richards Plus Size Women's 3 Piece Scalloped Sequin Lace Pantsuit, is a perfect outfit that provides the appropriate amount of style and comfort for any event you attend.

Pick a Neutral Color

If you plan on using your chosen plus size formal pant suit multiple times for various occasions, it is best to choose a neutral color. Neutral colors are some of the most versatile among all the others in the color palette, as they work well together and with everything else. These colors include:

Near-neutrals: A shade with low saturation levels, pastels, such as blush, dark rose , slate.

Warm Neutrals: Warm yet not overly vibrant, like tan or navy.

Cool Neutrals: Cool yet not overly vibrant, for example, taupe, or deep charcoal blue.

Black is counted as a neutral color, as well. It looks amazing in a formal pantsuit.

Choose the Right Fabric

When shopping at SleekTrends we, provide the best quality fabric we can, both in design and most importantly, practicality. The fabric you choose for your plus size formal pant suit should not be comfortable and flattering to your body size and shape.

There are six fabric options for your new and elegant plus size formal pant suit: polyester, linen, silk, cashmere, cotton, and wool.

Polyester: Generally used for suits; due its synthetic material, polyester retains heat and can get wrinkled, but some polyester suits have a flashy glossy shine.

Silk: Maintains a luxurious shine, while at the same time is soft and beautiful.

Linen and Cotton: Excellent choices for summer, as they tend to be very absorbent and breathable. However, cotton and linen suits get wrinkled very easily.

Cashmere: The king of all fabrics, however, akin to kings, it is also very expensive.

Wool: Versatile and pricy; original wool is warm and ideal for winters, however synthetic wool can be worn in summer.

With all of these tips in mind, feel free to explore and purchase your very own plus size formal pant suit here at SleekTrends, with the right fit, fabric, and color.
