Ready for a mind-blowing fashion hack? According to Lauren Edelstein, Style Director at Shopbop, all you need to do to determine whether or not a pair of jeans will fit is to wrap the waist around your neck — if the ends meet without overlapping (or stretching), they'll fit your waist. "The neck trick is one I was skeptical about, but it really works!"

A sloppily cuffed jean. An ill-fitting blazer. A dress that shows just a little too much to be referred to as "tastefully sheer." These are the things that fashion editors and stylists can spot from a million miles away. To those in the biz, the proper proportions of a crop top may be obvious, but for those seeing the trends in a magazine or online, it can be a little trickier to know exactly how to wear everything.


VENUS understands that clothes are a form of self-branding. What you wear can influence how you feel, and how you feel can influence what you wear. When it comes to fashion, there’s only one rule: Never wear anything you don’t absolutely love. That’s why VENUS offers such an extensive array of affordable clothing choices in sizes up to 3X. No matter what your personal style aesthetic, you’ll find options that you’ll look forward to wearing. Whether you’re getting ready for a day in the office or a night on the town, Venus has you covered.
When you shop our women’s plus size clothing online, you’ll find no shortage of stylish jackets, ribbed knit tops, dresses and skirts, corduroy mini skirts, matching sets, fur coats, classic tanks and tees, body-hugging bodysuits, overalls and more. All that in the trendiest colors and prints - like neon, burgundy, olive, nude, white, classic black, snake print, leopard print and more. How does a woman choose? 
If you are looking for a top-notch consignment store in CT, go no further than the two outstanding places I have come to love – Consignment Originals in Rocky Hill and their newest shop Consignment Originals on Route 44 in Avon! Service, selection, and prices are fabulous. I have saved hundreds of dollars on clothes and gifts for my family, friends, and me at these two amazing shops.
When looking to add a pop of color to large clothing pieces, make sure to have one statement item that pops or you’ll overdo it. Looking to wear a red dress, black blazer and black pumps? We love it.  Having a large statement piece such as a dress as well as additional accessories will lose the pop factor, we suggest keeping the large statement pieces as your only “pop”.

If you’ve got it, the place to flaunt it is the beach or the pool. VENUS helps you do just that.
