Are your dreams filled with images of supermodels on and off the runway of the Paris Fashion week? Chances are, the curvy you watched and saw some of them dressed in their best attires.
Some attended the show in a seemingly simple pair of high waisted jeans, yet they exuded a confident vibe with a beautiful smile. Fashion magazines have probably captured the skinniest of models on camera. One can only wonder how it feels like to strut across the red carpet in jeans and a complimenting top complete with accessories.
While you can never compete for fashion world domination, you too can pull off a pair of high waisted jeans right in the comforts of your community. A curvy woman must be confident in how she carries herself, and wearing the perfect bottoms is a step closer to that reality. Contrary to popular belief, this type of pants is flattering because it cinches the waist while elongating the torso. It highlights the curves that you want to be emphasised and gives the beholder an illusion of an hourglass figure. Here is some helpful advice to get you started in your “I’m going to rock the world” attire.
Avoid wearing too skinny or too loose jeans.
Curvy women can wear almost any type of pants. But it all depends on your size. You should ensure that you have your correct body size so that you will look confident in them. You can go up a size for your moving comfort, but that is as far as you should go. If you choose to go for a size skinnier, then movement may become difficult. You might also risk pulling a seam at a place and time where you might not be able to repair it fast enough. And when still in doubt about the size, look for a tailoring shop nearby which can fix and guarantee your perfect pants fit.
Try out some high waisted flare jeans.
Retro is coming back to the fashion world. But have no fear, it will not make you look like a hippie or a back-up dancer in Grease. High waisted flares are the in thing, especially if you are looking for a flattering style for your bottoms. The modern flare jeans give out a silhouette that adds a beautiful accent to your already existing feminine figure. Bell bottoms or wide flares also complements your legs since the hem does not stop at the ankles. It creates an impression that you are taller than you are.
Go for layers and textures.
Your tops also balance out your whole outfit. Unleash your creativity by mixing and matching in front of a mirror. For a balanced silhouette, you can go for sweaters, shirts, or jackets with hems that fall over or slightly above the middle of the hips. Cardigans and kimonos are also a go since it will make you look sophisticated and stylish.
Also, never be afraid to try out different pants. Lightweight textiles such as silk or linen should be a bit loose and lined. Stretch is good, but an over-stretchy cloth may tend to look ill-fitted on curves. And should you go for plain colours, make sure that the fabric is stiff and not flowy.
While not all pants are created equal, you have a lot of options to make them look better. Experiment with colours, fabrics, and even the footwear and accessories to complete your stylish look.
