This is a golden age of plus-size fashion. There are more on-trend, fashion-forward clothes available for women of all sizes. So, if you’re a curvy girl, follow the guide below to for tips on how to look good in plus-size clothing.
The first step is to let a complete online fashion store like Pink Lily work for you. Find a closet full of figure-flattering clothes in fun designs and styles for any shape or size. In addition, search for styling advice catered to your body type. By shopping pieces that you know are specifically designed with you and your body in mind, you can rest assured that you will look fabulous, no matter what!
Another important rule of looking good is to flaunt your assets. However, before you flaunt anything, you need to determine your most flattering body part. Remember, this is up to you. Whether you have great shoulders, slender ankles, a cinchable waist, or a swan-like neck, once you embrace it, you should emphasize it.
As much as you love your body, there might be a part that you’d rather not show off—no problem! The right outfit can disguise a specific body part as well as emphasize an asset. Best of all, the perfect outfit can do both at the same time.
To maximize your neckline and minimize your chest, choose a V-neck top. The deeper the cut, the longer your neck will appear! To emphasize your shoulders, try an off-the-shoulder top, and if your arms are lean, then go sleeveless. However, if you don’t like your upper arms, try a 3/4-length sleeve; it’s flattering on almost everyone.
Don’t forget to consider the length of your shirt! You want to make sure it covers everything it should cover. A longer top can also make your torso look longer.
Everyone loves the comfort of leggings, but if you’re a curvy girl, you might want to go with a little more structure. Jeans come in all shapes and sizes and work well to show off curves. You can also wear lounge pants for a more casual look. Just pair them with a cute t-shirt and a chunky belt.
Scarves give so much to a wardrobe, and they serve so many purposes. A great scarf can pull your outfit together, and if it’s just the right color, it will compliment your complexion.
An interesting scarf can also work to cover a body part you don’t like. For example, if your bare arms aren’t your favorite, wear your scarf shawl-style.
If you drape a scarf around your neck and leave it open so it hangs down, it will make your body look longer. This is good for anyone who is short or thinks they’re bloated.
Necklaces and earrings are some of the best accessories curvy women can wear. Colorful, dangling earrings or metallic chokers work well when you intend to show off your neck and chest because that’s where the eyes will go.
Nothing brightens up a wardrobe like a new pair of shoes. If you’re trying to look taller, wear wedges or booties with a heel. You probably already know that even a small heel puts your body at an angle that is slimming.
If you’re already tall enough, an on-trend pair of flats will add interest to your ensemble. Flats are available in so many colors and patterns that you’ll definitely find a pair that works well for your outfit.
Compare Before You Buy
Pink Lily has a great feature which allows you to compare different items. For example, if you can’t decide between dresses, you can select and compare them side by side to see exactly what they each have to offer. Also, if you decide to buy both, so be it!
Remember to emphasize your favorite body part when you go shopping. Online stores offer you the opportunity to take your time, compare, and reference your current closet so that you’re sure anything new will fit right in. So, what are you waiting for? Get shopping and embrace your curve-loving, plus-size style today!
