How To ROCK Those Curves This Summer

Posted on April 28 2019

So, I have a lot of curvier girls that shop with us and the number one concern I hear is "Yeah, but can that work for my body type? That probably won't work for me." And I'm telling you it can and it will! Plus size babes can totally rock most of the same trends as straight size girls; you just have to know what works for your body. (Check out a few of our fave plus size Instagrammers for proof: @thecaylajean, @tiffythefashionslayer, @marchandmayblog.) Still not convinced? Read on for more tips.

Flattering Silhouettes

You want to strike the perfect balance between loose enough so you don't feel the need to tug on the garment all night and fitted enough to still accentuate your favorite parts. This top has a great v-neck that flatters any size bust and the draping in front simultaneously camouflages any problem areas and adds a little drama to this fun floral piece.

Fit & Flare

Fit & flare dresses and tops LOVE curves! They cinch in the waist and flare out beautifully to create a gorgeous silhouette. Bonus points if you're able to add a bright, fun belt or cardigan.

Full Coverage Tops

The temps are warming daily, so nobody's in the mood for quarter-length tops to cover your arms, right? No worries! Look for tops with embellished sleeves that let you breathe a little and accentuate those gorgeous shoulders rather than make you feel more self-conscious.

A Great Pattern

Some of my plus-size babes are afraid of patterns, but you don't have to be! Florals are a fun season-appropriate pattern that look amazing on everyone. I love them in maxis, tops, skirts, you name it.
