Everyone always says that it’s important to be proud of your curves and embrace them. But how? Here are the 8 fashion essentials to always have around if you have curves and want to show them off. No matter the numbers that show up on your scale, this list goes out to every woman who has curves and wants to embrace them!


1-  THE PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS

No matter your silhouette, finding the perfect pair of jeans is no small feat. However, our stylists do have tips to make shopping for jeans easier and more successful:

-     Embrace the high waist. Not only is this a highly trendy cut, it draws a beautiful curve from the waist to the knee, harmonizing the waist and lifting the buttocks all at once. A must-have!

-    Don’t try to hide your curves with baggy jeans that just end up adding volume all over the place. Be more strategic!

-    When it comes to leg width, we like the boot cut (slightly flared) or the straight leg. The first is ideal to balance out the waist and is often more comfortable throughout the leg, while the second is a classic that lengthens the entire body.

2-  A BELT THAT CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING

Nothing like a belt to define the waist! Simply wear it where your waist is the smallest to instantly create an hourglass silhouette. Wear it with pants, but also with dresses, or even over a jacket, to really add some extra definition. If this tip feels like stepping out of your comfort zone, you can always pick a belt that matches closely the colour and print of your outfit. But you can also wear a contrasting colour to push the waist definition to the next level!

3-  THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS, OF COURSE

Curves or not, the little black dress is a true gem that should be a central part of every wardrobe for its versatility and timelessness. To highlight your hips, you’ll love a LBD that’s cinched at the waist with a slight flair. Ideally, find one that lands right above the knee and that has short or three-quarter length sleeves. You’ll also love wrap dresses that cross over the front!

4-  A CROSSOVER TOP

Every stylist knows that there is nothing like a crossover top to highlight a feminine silhouette. It draws attention to the most flattering part of the waist, has a V-neck that highlights the chest, and creates a dynamic effect thanks to its asymmetrical crisscross cut.

5-  GOOD HEELS!

They elongate the legs and enhances the behind: heels are the true heroes when it comes to adding verticality and femininity to a silhouette… but only if they add to the way you hold yourself up, and don’t hurt your posture! Stylists everywhere will tell you to choose a pair that is as comfortable as it is flattering.

6-  A SEDUCTIVE SIDE-SLIT SKIRT

A skirt with a side-slit is a great alternative to the miniskirt… and quite frankly we find it even more stylish! This ultra-feminine style shows just enough leg while creating a vertical asymmetry, making the entire outfit very visually appealing.

7-  A PEPLUM BLAZER

Round at the hips with a defined waist: this is the perfect style for you! While a straight fit jacket may look like a stiff block, a peplum waist cinches at the waist for a defined and feminine silhouette.

8-  A BAG THAT’S THE RIGHT SIZE!

Ok, time to pick a handbag! Remember that what goes in it matters just as much as how it looks on you. Stylists always recommend to pick a bag that is proportional to your silhouette, meaning you don’t want a bag that seems ridiculously small or comically large!
