5 Summer Style Tips For Dressing Curves
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.
SILHOUETTE: Fit & Flair
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.
