Plus Size Fashion Advice for the Modern Woman
Fashion for curvy women is more cutting edge than ever. Here at Pink Clove we are designing and producing catwalk-inspired pieces to make all of our clients look amazing. The following are a few tips to styling your figure to help you look your best on all occasions.
First off it’s important to remember that plus size in and of itself is not a body type. We all have different shapes and curves!
We have talked about the best ways to dress different body types but you can essentially just see which areas of your figure you’d like to downplay and which ones you want to highlight. Women are usually quite good at deciding what they’d like to show off and what they’d rather tone down.
The main idea is to highlight your curves instead of looking frumpy- this means choosing items of clothing that really smooth out your figure instead of making you appear more bulky.
Try to make the eye travel up and down instead of side to side. You can do this by:
- Choosing clothes that fit. It might be tempting to cover up in baggier clothes or extra layers, but as you can imagine this only adds volume to your look. Fitted clothing in your exact size is actually the way to go. It will help you ensure you don’t create additional lumps.
- Work with prints, shapes and details. Here you have an advantage over petites, in that you can select clothing with larger prints and shapes. Vertical stripes and prints help the eye move up and down.
- Pay Attention to Scale. On a curvalicious woman tiny accessories like dainty necklaces and narrow belts can draw attention to larger proportions. Go for larger statement pieces to keep everything balanced.
