Fashion is a state of mind and not a size range. For all we know, it’s not about the size you wear, it's about how you wear your size. Whether you’re a small or a plus-size, you can definitely slay with the principles of how to take advantage of every asset – including those curves.
So here are 7 tips on how to embrace those gorgeous curves fully.
It’s not about the inches; the secret lies in your body shape. First, you need to find your own body shape be it hourglass, busty, apple, pear, rectangle, or inverted-triangle.
Once you know then try the following:
The common ground for styling all body types is actually balance. Balance is the concept of visual equilibrium. Knowing how to make your parts proportion to each other is key to nailing your outfits.
For example, if you’re already wearing a loose top, we suggest wearing fitted pants so you won’t look bulkier. We know wearing loose clothes can make one look slimmer, but overdoing it will just make you look heavy and unflattering.
Fit practically follows understanding the art of balance. Wear clothes that fit you just right; not too hulking but at the same time not too fitted.
Enormous clothes can give you undesired bumps, while snug clothes can accentuate the parts that you don’t want to show. Always find the fit that you are always comfortable and confident with.
Your best asset is generally the body part you feel most proud of. Generally, people found their greatest assets from other people's opinions. Another way is to observe which body parts makes you feel good when you examine them for long periods.
So if you have a full and rounded behind, then wear fitted pants to accentuate it. Got a nice bust? Maybe show a bit of cleavage. But remember not to overdo it, always be graceful, powerful and complex.
Every woman needs a belt, not just to keep your pants in place, but to accentuate your waist.
Belts create the illusion that you have a thin waist. So if you are a bit insecure about your tummy, then a belt is your next best friend.
All these tips won’t make sense if you don’t learn to love your body. Style recipes only work as well as the person who applies them. So, look at yourself in the mirror and accept each and every bump in your body. Remember they’re what makes you, you.
Be gentle with yourself and know that you are beautiful the way you are. So lift that chin up, walk with confidence and grace knowing that style has nothing to do with size. Be confident in who you are, what you know and you will be beautiful.
