Belted coats perfectly define your curve by giving you a nice silhouette. The good thing is that it magnificently flaunts your curves irrespective of how many layers you have wrapped around.
Tights with a stretch
Grab a pair of tights with a lot of elastics. More elastic gives it more than normal stretch and a better fit close to your body. If there is more space between the tights and your body as it usually happens in the crotch, you will have more discomfort. Stretchable tights are both stylish and comfortable.
High-waisted skinny jeans
You can create numerous styles with a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans. Tuck it inside a pair of boots or wear it with a tunic – length tops for a more casual and relaxed look. The high waist leaves its impact by accentuating the ingrained girth of your waist.
You can tuck in your sweaters so that your waist does not get lost. You may also bring back those street styles stars usually swear by. Tuck in a loose top into your skinny jeans just a bit in the front and your waist looks super cool.
Go contrast with bold colors or prints
If you love your humongous curves, especially those around your arms, chest or booty, wrap it with a bold color or print. This will give you a flawless look with a bit more emphasis on your curves.
1. Invest in good quality footwear and choose footwear that corresponds with the weight of the fabric with which it is being worn.
2. To get the best look from your casual clothes choose styles that glide over your body and do not pinch, pull or squeeze. Bumps and excess weight are not hidden by wearing bulky clothes but rather accentuated.
3. Wear sportswear appropriately. For example, sneakers are intended for sports such as running, jogging or walking. Jogging suits are intended for jogging not for everyday activities unrelated to sports or exercise.
4. To look your best find jeans that suit your body type and are not tight. To read the article “Finding Jeans That Fit” go to Sheila’s Fashion Sense and look under “Style Advice”.
5. Whatever clothing choices you make choose styles; colors and color combinations that make you feel better. Don’t wear anything that makes you feel self-conscious. What looks great on your best friend may not be best for you.
Wear loose clothes: Yes, we may have heard this before, but do we actually implement it? Albeit, no. We all start shopping for the summers when it is the peak time and are not left with much time to scout and look for brands that offer both style and comfort. If you think you do not have many summer friendly clothes, start shopping today. Domestic and international brands start stocking dresses for women and t-shirts for men around this time, which you should not miss out on.
Avoid flimsy fabrics: We cannot help that we have to stay covered in thick jackets all through winters, which leaves us with summers to flaunt our wardrobe. Apparently, this also means that we get obsessed with fashion and do not check the fabric we are wearing. Flimsy fabrics stick to the body when we start sweating and leave us irritated, not to ignore the skin rashes they cause.
Let go of the denim: No matter how much you love your jeans, summers call for loose trousers in skin friendly materials. Denim is thick and causes perspiration resulting in discomfort. Switch to trousers for men / women and feel the difference this summer season.
Avoid embellishments: Beads and metals on the garment weighs down the clothes, making them stick to the body, ultimately trapping body heat. Opt for embroidery if you have to wear something rich-looking.
Go for natural fabrics: Nothing looks and feels better than cotton in summers. It is more breathable than materials like polyester or rayon, is better at absorbing sweat, dries quickly, and allows air to circulate well. You can also go for linen or viscose which are again, gentle on the skin and great for summers.
Arms – are yours toned? Then wear sleeveless and capped sleeves. If there is even the hint of flab, keep it covered. OK, stop whining. If you buy the correct fabric, you won’t be hot. Natural fabrics, such as cotton are much cooler than synthetic fabrics. In fact, having your arms constantly exposed to the sun can make you even warmer.
Bust – If you have a large bust, do not accentuate with tops gathered around the bust or with horizontal stripes. If you have a smaller bust, wearing wrap, criss-cross, or gathered tops will make you look a little bigger.
Stomach & Hips – Sigh! Here we go again with those low-rise pants. Please, let me get through one day without seeing flab hanging over a pair of low-rise pants. Wearing low-rise pants and a short shirt with that hint of flab hanging over makes you look ridiculous, not cool. If you want to cover a little tummy bulge, wear a shirt that cuts in under the bust and then flares a little.
Legs & Thighs – Look at the back of your legs. If they are not toned or if you have an excess of cellulite, avoid short shorts.
Legs & Ankles – Pant lengths are crucial here. If your pants are the wrong lengths you will look dumpy, short, like you have all leg or you have chunky ankles. Capris and cropped pants come in all lengths so select one that is flattering to your shape.
So here are the 5 rules:
- Wear a length sleeve that makes your arms look in proportion.
- Wear tops that skim the bust to diminish or gather at the bust to enhance.
- Wear shirts that flatter not make you fatter. The same goes for the rise of pants.
- Watch the cut of your pants. You don’t want to accentuate hips, knees or thighs if those are problem areas.
- The length and shape of your legs and ankles will determine the length of your pants.
