Hello CurvieBirdies. I was cruising the web, and I found this article on Ivillage.com about curvie dressing tips. And ya’ll know I had to share the info with my curvie readers!! There are so really good ideas here. Take a look!!
1. Go Monochromatic
Octavia Spencer has this look on lock! She wears a series of monochromatic dresses. It’s a strategy that’s great for lengthening and slimming a curvy frame—without wearing black or navy says. Also the sleeve end in just the right place to cover up fullness at the top of the arm but still shows skin.
2. Try a Trench Coat
Oprah Winfrey proves that you don’t need to wear a gown to look amazing after dark! The softly skirted bottom skims over her lower body. So invest in a knockout evening coat made of brocade, satin or raw silk. Worn with slim pants and heels, it’s as formal as a cocktail dress but with more coverage!!
3. Wrap It
If you have an hourglass figure like Jill Scott, chances are you have a few waist-defining, curve-skimming wrap dresses you wear to work. But don’t think they’re just for day. This can be a fabulous choice for evening, too. I love how Jill’s look is shimmery, sexy and hits her in all the right places!
4. Skim Your Silhouette
Mo’Nique’s silver dress is from one of Tadashi Shoji’s ready-to-wear collections. Similar styles ($300-400) quickly sold out at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales. The length of the skirt and the elegant neckline are perfection, showing off Mo’Nique’s collarbones and calves—and they’d do the same for anyone who wears a size 12 or larger. Perfect for CurvieBirdies!!
So what do ya’ll think? Do you think these ideas will work for you? Which is your favorite style tip?
