The best style tips for embracing your curves. Ah, curves. Some women have them. Others don’t. Some women love their curvy figure. Others moan repeatedly about slimming down.
Whichever one you are, there are certain outfits that work to embrace your figure. Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian are known for their curves and are not afraid to show off their body.
But if you aren’t sure how to dress for your shape and are too self-conscious about showing off your curves, here’s our style tips and tricks.
Black is a flattering colour on everyone but adding a pop of colour to your outfit can make it look interesting. It can also highlight your best areas. Colour and print blocking are great for creating a silhouette and giving shape to your figure.
Choose The Right Fabrics
Wearing the wrong fabrics can make you appear shapeless. You need to find materials that contour your curves and hug your figure. This will make you look more streamlined. Choose something like scuba or double-faced viscose.
Avoid wearing high-sheen fabrics as they will attract light and can make you appear bigger. For areas you want to play down, opt for matte fabrics.
Accentuate Your Waist
Cinching your clothes in at the waist will make your shape look more defined. Adding a belt is an easy way to complete your outfit. It will make you appear slimmer and define your curves because it enhances the smallest part of your body.
Pieces that embrace your hourglass shape are always flattering but getting the right silhouette is crucial. If you are going to wear a pencil skirt, pair it with a looser top. Alternatively, if you are going to wear a slim fitting t-shirt, add volume to your bottom half with a fuller skirt.
If you have a full bust, scoop, boat or V-neck lines are more flattering than round or high necks.
Wear Your Size
Hiding your curves under baggy clothing will only make you look bigger. Wearing clothes that are too small will appear unflattering. Embrace your curves and wear your perfect size. This will help you look stylish and show off your feminine shape.
Love Your Curves
Be confident in what you’re wearing. If you love your arms, don’t be afraid of showing them off in a sleeveless style. Wear clothes that accentuate areas of your body you love and embrace your curves.
