Abuja - Fashion trends often repeat themselves. In fact, the trends of today are more or less reinvented versions of past ones.
Therefore, it pays to check your closet every now and again. You might be surprised to find an old peplum top that still looks great!
So, here’s a round-up of key items you need in your wardrobe right now.
Surprise! Crop tops are not only meant for women with tiny waists. If you have a little thickness in the middle, you can still flaunt this latest trend.
However, you need to know how to adopt this fashion for your body.
If you don't want your entire midsection falling out, wear the top with a high-waisted skirt or pants and only reveal a bit of your upper waistline.
This is one way to feel fully relaxed and confident in this style. Another alternative is to wear a tank top under the crop top, and you're ready to go.
Head to toe white is back. This trend will dominate in spring 2014, so get ready for it. The color blocks and bright colors of last year will give way to all white, and plus size women can make the most of this look.
Shake off your fears about wearing an all-white ensemble because with the right accessories and clothing, the trend will look hot on full-figured women.
Peplums were popular back in the 1980s. While the trend took off in late 2013, it will explode in the spring and summer months of 2014. You can wear peplum dresses, tops, and skirts, and you'll look smashing in all of them.

Stripes, especially vertical ones, will create slim lines and balance your body, so embrace them.
Ruffles are another trend to embrace because they add a bit of whimsy to structured clothing. Wear a ruffled top under your tailored suit or choose ruffled hemmed dresses when you want to flaunt your femininity.

The distressed denim continues into 2014, but you don't have to go full-on rocker to carry the trend. Pair distressed denim jeans with chic and tailored jackets.
T-shirts and chunky boots are perfect for the weekend or for a summer concert, but you could dress up the look with high heels and bold accessories.
Skater dresses are versatile, so it's a good thing that they're still trendy in 2014. The fit and flare styling will emphasize your waist and skim lightly over your hips. Dress them up or down according to the occasion and know that you look just as fabulous as smaller size women.
