LUV UR BODY: How to dress a Curvy Figure

Curvy Figure
Form fitting. Defined waist. Solid colors.  

Do Flaunt that Waist - Garments that are nipped at the waist and are narrow at the knee.  Wrap dresses and blouses.  Tailored pieces with an a-line silhouette.

Do Elongate - Pieces that have clean lines and vertical detailing. Skirts and dresses with slits to show off your legs. Slim-cut pants.  Monochromatic (one color) separates or color blocking in all the right places to accentuate your assets. V-neck tops or any top that reveals skin at the collarbone, shoulder or cleavage.

Don't Dramatise those Curves - Nothing too tight, over-sized or made with a very thin fabric. Say no to jackets that button too loosely at the waist and garments that have over-exaggerated shapes.
