Consider Your Body Shape: Embrace What Mama Gave You!
Let's be real, we come in all shapes and sizes, and that's what makes us unique. Own your body shape, whether you're a sassy apple, a bodacious pear, a va-va-voom hourglass, a sleek rectangle, or a top of the world triangle. The key is to choose dresses that accentuate your assets and make you feel like a queen. Dive into our guide on "How to Dress For Your Shape" for a dose of body-loving inspiration!
Consider Colours: Paint the Town Fabulous!
When it comes to colours, you've got the whole palette to play with! Here's the scoop:
- Block Colours: Play with solid colours. Keeping tonal will always create a seamless silhouette and classic black is always a winner, but don't be afraid to unleash your inner rainbow with vibrant hues that reflect your personality and style. Considering placement is key, remember dark colours minimise, light colours accentuate.
- Florals: Blossom like the fierce flower you are! Floral prints can be a curvy girl's best friend. Look for dresses with floral patterns that are strategically placed to enhance your curves and draw attention to your best assets. If you are blessed with luscious curves then opt for curve dresses like curve wrap dresses.
- Neutrals: Be a neutral goddess! Soft nude and blush tones create an elegant and versatile canvas. They're the perfect backdrop for adding a splash of pizzazz with a statement belt and vibrant pops of colour.
