Women of every size can show off their curves by wearing outfits that embrace their beautiful figures. In fact, clothes that fit well and give the body an hourglass shape can make women feel instantly confident and comfortable in what they’re wearing. Whether you’re thin or curvy, look for tops that help you create proportionate curves by focusing on details that draw attention to the waist and have feminine features.
Here are several elegant and stylish ways to define your shape with the top you’re wearing:
1. Opt for three-quarter sleeves and a cinched waist
Tops with a soft, unstructured fabric look lovely when cinched at the waist because they’re able to float out over the hips, making the body look curvy and proportionate. Additionally, they draw attention to the smallest part of a woman’s figure. Three-quarter sleeves have the same defining effect – their length draws the eye toward the waist (plus, they downplay upper arms while leaving daintier wrists and hands exposed). The added charm of open-top sleeves add some stylish femininity to the look. Wear blouses with slim-cut pants and heels for an outfit you can easily shift from the office to an evening out.
2. Try collars and waistlines that curve gently inward
When looking for jackets and blazers, go for those with softly curving waistlines and collars. These can make the body look womanly, following the body’s natural curves more than tailored and straight-lined blazers. A sheer lace jacket nips in at the waist and flares naturally at the hips, which instantly creates a beautiful hourglass shape when paired with the rounded V neckline. Not to mention, the sheer lace is sophisticated while giving the jacket some vintage charm. Layer it over a brightly colored top to the office for a flattering look you’ll feel amazing in.
3. Go for peplum
Peplum is well-known for accentuating a woman’s waist while highlighting her curves for instant statement-making definition. Many of Monroe and Main’s color block prints skim a woman’s natural curves and create the illusion of a tiny waist and feminine contours, giving a more defined shape which looks perfectly proportionate. Look for tops and dresses with dark panels along the sides or around the waist.
For even more balance and shape definition, try some of these flattering ideas:
4. Try a pencil skirt
If you’re plus-size, try a pencil skirt and a fitted skirt to elongate your legs and torso. Be sure to find the right fit in order to be comfortable and cute.
5. Don’t cover your tush
If you are hoping to hide your hips or add height, don’t wear tops that are too long and cover your tush; they tend to shorten your legs.
6. Try a straight-legged jean
If you are trying to balance a large chest and hips with a narrow waist, finding comfortable jeans is a challenge. Straight-legged jeans work to smoothen out your body line while hugging your hips, so you can achieve an appeal that also stabilizes your frame.
7. Wear the right length
Getting the length of your bottoms right is one of the best ways to slim down your overall appearance and create the illusion of thinner legs. For pants, this meaning opting for longer styles that extend past the bottom of your ankle, whether they’re slim-cut or wide-leg. For skirts and shorter capri-style pants, make sure they hit at the slimmest part of your legs. Look for skirts that end around the knee (or just above or below them) or underneath the calf muscle where the leg begins to narrow.
8. Layer with long skirts
Long skirts lend themselves well to layering, which is perfect for the fall and winter seasons. To stay warm for cold months, make sure your closet is full of items you can easily layer with your maxi skirt. A plain T-shirt is a simple top to pair with your skirt. For a warmer addition, wear a cardigan, blazer or faux fur vest over the tee for a stylish yet comfortable appearance.
9.Max out your look
Maxi skirts work well for women who are petite and straight-shaped. They help appear taller and highlight the curves you do have. A multi-patterned printed maxi will help lengthen the appearance of your body, which also makes you look thinner.
No matter what outfit you’re in, remember to wear it with confidence! Showing off your curves instead of covering them up is a great way to exude poise and make a statement!
