Tip Tuesday- Tips for dressing up your curves

Celebrate your curves with these easy tips and tricks

1. No Rules

Instead of worrying about certain rules, rather wear what you feel great in. We agree with @LauraWeill who tweeted: “Like what you see? Try it on. Sometimes your body will surprise you.”

2. Play with colours and patterns

Pair dark wash jeans with a colourful necklace, a leopard print scarf or a dainty floral blouse to draw attention away from hips and thighs.

3. Silhouettes

Instead of shrouding your curves, opt for well-structured items. If you have a small waist, A-line skirts and dresses are a great way to accentuate your best feature. Pair it with a tailored blazer for work.

4. Fabric

Tighter fits are not necessarily something to avoid. Skinny jeans and pencil skirts, provided that your choose good quality, thicker fabrics, can actually streamline curves.

5. Support

Well-fitted undergarments are essential. Make sure you know your correct bra size by getting a free fitting at any underwear retailer. Play with different styles of underwear to find what works for you.
