We've partnered with
Macy’s to show you how to embrace the season's hottest trends.
While fit-and-flare silhouettes and black pieces will always have a home in our closets thanks to their universally flattering attributes, this season, we want you to step up your fashion game and get out of your comfort zone with something different. From unexpected cuts to statement-making patterns, there are plenty of pieces this season that are not only on trend, but will flatter women of every size. To prove it, we tapped our favorite bloggers to put six trends to the test. Keep reading to see how they styled their favorite pieces, and get some warm-weather outfit ideas for yourself.

From delicate knee slits to major distressing, ripped jeans are always a good option to add some edge to your look.
Shainna opted for a sleek white pair — the perfect complement to her pastel-hued, Springtime ensemble.
"These white jeans from
Nanette by Nanette Lepore Plus are just perfect. Just cuff them and you're good to go."

An asymmetrical hemline adds a fun and flirty twist to a breezy dress. Look for one that's cut higher in the front and drapes to a longer length in the back for the ultimate leg-lengthening effect. Here,
Crystal kept the focus on the RACHEL Roy Curvy printed dress by pairing it with neutral gladiator sandals fit for a resort retreat.
"The line is filled with the spring dresses of my dreams: loose, easy
- to - wear shift dresses, classic lines, pockets in nearly every dress, and prints with attitude. This printed one strikes that perfect balance between fitted and body- skimming. I always look for fit in the shoulders with dresses like this — if it fits in the shoulders, the oversize style will look chic and polished and not in the least bit sloppy. I can’t wait to take this on vacation with me."

Denim doesn't have to be reserved just for your jeans.
Kim took it to the next level with a streamlined, denim sheath dress from INC International Concepts Plus. The clean lines, dark wash, exposed zipper, and waist belt all work together to keep you looking long and lean.
What I love most about this dress is the silhouette of the sheath. It plays up my curves in a very flattering manner without revealing too much. The dark wash of the denim makes the dress feel more classic, so it is something that you can wear to the office and then out to dinner."

Contrary to popular belief, boyfriend jeans aren't always unflattering. If you find the right ones, like a
streamlined, straight-leg pair, they can complement almost anything. Take notes from Jeniese and pair them with a cheeky tee for a casual-cool look.
"I paired the jeans and shirt together for a great look that can easily go from a day at the farmer's market to dinner."

Sleeveless tunics are the ideal transitional piece for Spring, since they allow you to show off a little skin while still requiring bottoms to be worn underneath.
Beck went sleek and minimal with a RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy Plus Size Sleeveless Shift Dress over leggings. The addition of unexpected details, like the oversize pockets, keep the outfit fresh.
"This crisp white dress is perfect for the transition to Spring. It has a nice weight to it and amazing pockets."

Your workout gear doesn't have to be boring! Bright colors and bold patterns can help motivate you to be your most optimum self, as
Christina demonstrated. Show a bit of skin in a pair of these Ideology Plus printed leggings that hits right at the calf for maximum flattery — and maximum impact.
"This outfit has hints of pink, has a fresh cityscape print, and fits like a glove!"
