CoCoPerez fashion correspondent Jessica Kane is back again, this time to share her thoughts on prints!

We’re all bout the stripes lately. As for Jessica, she reveals…

"This week's column is about prints baby!

I saw the most gorgeous prints on the runway for Spring and was completely captivated by Milly by Michelle Smith. I know there is the myth that curvy girls should never wear stripes and bold prints, but I think you should be able to wear whatever makes you happy! So, I wanted to show curvy girls where they could score runway prints in sizes 12+.

Here are my top choices for the 3 hottest prints; geometric, dots and stripes.

Fashion Commentary On Melissa McCarthy's Golden Globes Gown

Our newest fashion correspondent, Jessica Kane, is back this week to share yet another great fashion editorial.

This time around, she has a special message for Melissa McCarthy — stop wearing dark colors!

Reveals Jessica:

I'm one of Melissa McCarthy's biggest fans, but I was so sad to see her on the Golden Globe red carpet in a dreary dark emerald ensemble that quite simply, doesn't match her personality and fire in life. I barely recognized her! If I were Melissa's stylist, I would have put her in a delicious jewel toned strapless and shown off that beautiful body and soul! Something that said, I'm beautiful and I KNOW IT!

Ditch the black and embrace color! Too many plus size women think that black will make them look/feel better, but guess what, it's not! Experiment with jewel tones and challenge yourself to live life more colorfully.

Looking for a gorgeous cocktail or formal dress, but no idea where to go? Check out my favorite stops:

- sydneyscloset.com - Biggest selection on the web with everything from bridal to couture.
- igigi.com - Classic dresses that will be forever beautiful by designer Yuliya Raquel.
- nordstrom.com - Carries my favorites Rachel Pally and Tahari Women.
- macys.com - Carries one of my favorite plus dress lines, Ruby Rox.

As for the blue dress above, that's from Sydney's Closet and a great choice for the ladies with curves.
