What type of hangers should I use to hang my clothing?

Great question. There are many types of hangers on the market. Some are good and some are not.  The best hangers for hanging dresses and shirts are wooden, plastic or padded, but they have to be of a specific type.  The wooden hangers need to be thick and rounded on the edges as well as the plastic ones.

Don’t use the wire hangers as they leave rabbit ears on the shoulder of your clothing. You don’t want to walk around with 2 little spikes on your shoulders. If you have a bunch of them, try using them for a DIY project 😃.

Pants can be hung one of two ways. They can be folded over a think hanger, that will not leave a crease in the middle like the wooden hangers above or if you have enough space in your closet you can hang them from a two prong pants hanger.  This eliminates any creasing.  Or you can be creative and hang your jeans from S-hooks as I show in one of my previous blog posts.

You can even find creative ways to hang your scarves.  I have a lot of them so these do come in handy for me.

Outfit of the Day

Today I’m featuring a casual date night outfit of the day. I’m wearing a pair of khaki bermuda shorts from gap with a dark tan t-shirt hanging on the outside of my shorts. I’ve topped it off with a long brown, white and dark tan colored cardigan/shrug from Cabi. The brown pumps are from nine West.

I’m ready to go to dinner and a movie with my hubby.

Fashion Friday!

Today, I’m celebrating the style of Plus Size women.  It can be hard sometimes to find stylish clothing if you’re plus size, but more and more designers are being more mindful of you.  I’m seeing more stylish clothing in the stores and online for sizes 14 and up. Their selling more styles that are up to date and follow the trends of the season, instead of just being basic.

You don’t have to be a size 2 to look stylish and fashionable.  Learn to mix trends and styles to work for your body type.
