Kmart LYS Plus-Size Collection Spring 2011 Lookbook

This season Kmart declares "Love Your Style, Love Your Size" with the launch of its LYS plus-size collection, made especially for women size 18 and over. Prices range from $29.99 for an olive green jacket to $21.99 for a feminine tunic, with basics like camis and leggings priced even lower. Fun splashes of color and bold prints lift the assortment, while fabrics ranging from satin to denim help create the versatile mood of the collection.

LYS Senior Designer, and plus-size woman, Nicole Magnani sees LYS as redefining the plus-size fashion landscape, bringing her personal eye for style and ease to the clothing. She says, "Kmart will be the destination where curvy women shop for clothes they feel great in, want to be seen in, and look amazing wearing!"

I love the sophisticated color palette and the delicate treatment of the military trend shown with pieces like the silk cargos, utility tunic dress or stud trim top.

Keep reading to see all the looks. Do you think Kmart nailed it with LYS?

A lot of these items are almost direct copies of the new women's plus size line at Sears, Beverly Drive. The Beverly Drive items look like they're of a bit higher quality materials and workmanship, however.

Very fashionable and trendy clothes! Woman with plus size body can definitely wear these kind of clothes. The design of the clothes can give a smaller fit because of the color matching. it's Great!

We just bought some items from this line and they are wonderful. The sundresses are flirty and very feminine. Will go back and purchase some more. I agree finally reasonable priced fashion for plus size.
