Practical Styling Tips For Extra Curves & More

Style is based on individual taste and it goes from a simple earring to having the right undergarments that will enhance your figure.

I’m not the biggest fan of using the term ‘plus size’ (because really, aren’t we all just ‘sizes’?), I’ll use the term here for the sake of what is currently trending.

Like dressing for any body type, it’s all about emphasizing your assets to make you feel your best while boosting up your confidence.

Thanks to many plus size bloggers before me and the accessibility of the internet, I have managed to compile a few tips that have helped in the past and that I hope will be able to help my readers as well.

  1. Dress For Your Body Type
  • Of great importance for us a plus size women, is to know to what body shape we belong to.
  • If you’re a rectangular shape, you may want to create shape with your clothes.
  • If you have an hourglass figure, then you want to show this off.
  • Pear shapes might want to stick to separates and choose clothes that balance out their silhouette

  1. Know What Works

This is more of a general styling tip, not only for us as curvy women, and that’s to know what works for you.

Just because something’s on-trend doesn’t mean that it will always be flattering.

Some of us may be able to pull off the latest trends and fashion diversity, while others may be better off sticking to more classic styles.

  1. Emphasize Your Assets

Everyone has a favorite part of their body that they are willing to show more than the rest.

It may be your legs, killer curves, or décolletage, whatever it may be make sure to do it with class and pride so that it will not only make you feel better but also to showcase that you are proud of who you are.

  1. Work with Color

Color has the ability to cheer your mood, and it also has the ability to draw attention to the area that you would prefer.

If you want to emphasize your neckline, go with a colorful statement necklace.

If you want to emphasize your waist, choose a colorful top or waist belt.

This style tip for plus size women is about making the most of color by wearing it on the areas that you want to emphasize.

  1. Accessories ARE Necessities

One way to stay on-trend is to invest in the right accessories: with the latest bags, shoes, and jewelry.

Unlike clothes, accessories are much more versatile and user friendly than clothing.

They can also be much more flexible to mix and match, dress up and dress down.

Make your basic outfits move with the trends by investing a bit more on must-have accessories.
