With summer fast approaching, we bring you our top summer style tips for dressing those killer curves…

COLOUR: Bold & Bright

Some people feel dressing for a curvier figure means shying away from anything bold and colourful, that darker colours are somehow more flattering – this is definitely not the case. It’s all about picking the right shape for your height and the right colour tones to suit your complexion and hair colour.


The fit and flair, ‘50’s style silhouette is really flattering, emphasising a nipped in waist and gently softening the hips and upper leg area to give a more feminine shape. This style works well for summer weddings and parties.

STYLE: Shift Dress

The shift dress is a big trend this spring/summer season and it’s great for curves, with a loose fitting shape that falls easily and sits comfortably around the bosom. Pick your fabric well and this is a great look for work too.

A summer blazer, preferably in navy or a darker colour, is a brilliant cheat when it comes to dressing. Drawing the eye inwards and downwards, the blazer has a natural slimming effect and the soft structure adds a dressier finish to a more formal look.


I can’t do a style round-up without mentioning accessories, as they are the perfect way to complete a look and can completely transform an outfit. A statement necklace is a real game changer; teamed with bangles, a chunky ring and paired with a colourful maxi dress you have your summer beach look sorted.
