Figure Flattering [Lookbook]
Looking for ways to flatter your figure? Try this lookbook for the different secrets to give you that figure-flattering glow!
Hug Your Curves
To emphasize your curves, wear your dresses a little more snug. A key tip to consider for showing off your lower body curves in a a dress is to have it be tighter at the waist, gently hugging your hips while loosely falling over your thighs.
Trick the Eyes
Keep in mind that our eyes see curves based on what’s near or around them. A straight line of buttons really offset curves that don’t follow the same line. Narrow trim makes it easy to see changes to curve. And a great print or cut of fabric can really define an ideal hourglass shape.
Skinny Jean Magic
Some petite women find that adding height and length to their appearance while wearing jeans can be tricky. This is where skinny jeans can work their magic- they combine a curve-hugging fit with a sleeker and more modern look that’s better suited to flatter your shape.
Opt for a Wrap Style
Aside from A-line dress, one of other cuts that complements almost every body type is the gathered waist. The ruched style highlights the natural waist and creates a very flattering and camouflaging waist-line.
Find a dress that follows your silhouette without hugging, which is ideal for a plus-size figure. A surplice neckline helps create a narrow central focus, and the skirt avoids a too-tight look at the hips.
We weren’t all born with the knockout hourglass figure. But, thanks to strategically positioned cinching & detailing, you can look like you were.
