accentuate curves

Calling all curvaceous ladies: It’s time to quit hiding your best features under layers of material and start showing them off in all their glory. Highlighting your assets is all about choosing the right clothing pieces for you.

Not sure where to begin? Here are six trends you can try for yourself that will accentuate your body shape: 

1.  Learn the art of color-blocking

If you’ve yet to hear about the art of color-blocking, you’re in for a treat. This is a fashion term that simply means that you use color blocks to accentuate the best aspects of your body. The idea here is that you choose dresses, skirts, and tops that have large panels of color. For example, you may wish to choose a skirt that has two panels which rest on either side of your hips. These will mimic your natural curves and accentuate them well.

2.  Invest in vertically striped pieces

Stripes are a huge fashion yet again, which means that it’s well worth giving them a go for yourself. One of the best things that you can do here is to choose vertical stripes. This pattern is one of the most flattering. The stripes will flow downward on your dress or any other item of clothing and following the flow of your curves. Should you have an hourglass or pear-shaped figure, you will find that this particular look works well.

3.  Choose the right bra for each outfit

Of course, it should go without saying that having the right bra for your clothing is key. When you’re choosing a killer outfit, you should always consider the cut of the clothes and how they will work with your lingerie. It’s essential that you choose a bra which flatters your figure and works with whatever clothing you may decide on. Often enough, the best way to work this out is to try on a few different styles when dressing. Give it a go!

4.  Give high-waisted pants a shot

The high-waisted pants trend is one that no curvaceous lady should skip. It’s basically made for us! There’s something uniquely flattering and beautiful about some stunning jeans or shorts that have this feature. Whether you try this trend with a loose blouse or something more fitted, you’re sure to see that it has a truly brilliant effect. Take the time to seek out various styles and see which ones work for your own shape.

5.  Try out a lower neckline too

Never underestimate the power of a low neckline. Should you have large breasts, you need to ensure that you flatter them rather than trying to hide them away. While you might find that a high neckline has its place (in certain situations), it is rarely the most suitable look. Instead, you might want to go for something lower than shows off your curves while still looking classic and womanly. Pair this type of look with a plunge bra or even a push-up bra for an awe-inspiring aesthetic. Play around and see what works.

6.  Match flowing tops with fitted pants

Fashion is all about creating the right balance between your clothing. If you’re a fan of boho style flowing tops, you have a whole load to work with here. Match this look with a fitted pair of pants, such as some leggings or even jeans, to make a dynamic duo. Alternately, you could turn this fashion trend on its head. Why not opt for a flowing skirt but then combine that with a fitted bodycon top? The choice, as always, is completely yours!

Are you ready to start showing off your curves and loving your shape more than ever? The answer should be a gigantic yes! Switching up your wardrobe and opting for pieces that work with your figure is the smartest way to go. Hopefully, our exclusive advice will have helped you do just that. If you’re hoping to start a new chapter when it comes to your fashion this fall, it’s time to simply turn the page. Good luck and happy shopping.
