Don't let your wardrobe turn dreary with the coming of the cold weather! We agree that cold weather calls for warm outfits, but we don't see any reason why curvy women ought to obey those rigid and outdated fashion rules that turn them into shapeless blocks of fabric. We, at Curvy Clothing, believe that a well-curated wardrobe is the best remedy against cold weather. This year has brought into the light gorgeous winter fashion ideas and trends that inspire us to experiment with colours, textures and shapes, in what we could consider as the ultimate attempt at livening up our wardrobes.
Wear Well-Defined Shapes
Fabrics featuring prominent textures not only suit winter fashion style but also add a touch of elegance and refinement. A leather jacket is one of the most fashionable items regardless of the season. To wear it in the winter, just pair it with an oversized scarf, skinny jeans and a solid pair of boots. For a touch of luxury, consider wearing thick wool fabrics, suede or shearlings. Women’s Naturopath, Jacqui Watts recommends, “by pairing high-waisted or mid-rise jeans with a longline wool coat you'll create a stylish optical effect, as this type of outfit also breaks up the torso.”
Dress Up In Layers
Layering is an excellent way to accentuate your curvy silhouette. Also, it allows you to create outfits that include all of your winter fashion favourites. For instance, a sleeveless coat paired with a long-sleeved knit and a nice pair of jeans will give you the chic look that makes heads turn wherever you go. Belted tunics, blazers and Ponte pants will keep you warm without making you look bulky.
Dare To Be Feminine
Femininity will never go out of fashion, that's for sure. When she’s not in uggs and a warm hoodie, working from home business owner, Leila Maminezhad embraces her flirty, fun side, “feminine silhouettes are always pleasant to the eye” she says. The cross-over or wrap trend is now more actual than ever before, as it is one of the most flattering fashion styles. Choose ruffles, ruching and peplum to compose a flattering silhouette. Wear V necklines to draw the eye to the best looking part of your body.
Choose The Proper Fit
You'll always look great if your clothes fit. Don't believe those who say that lighter colours make you look bulkier or bigger - this is nothing but a myth. Black clothes that don't fit properly won't make you look slimmer. Dare to wear white to cheer up your days and you'll see the difference right away! Whatever your choice of colour,
ensure that your clothes fit you. That's the secret of most good-looking women out there.
Aren't you tired of wearing black or dark brown outfits just because they have been the go-to of plus size fashion for ages? Modern fashion for curvy women is all about colour. Even red and pink go very well together these days. Choose a tailored suit in a plain colour as an office outfit. The only thing to pay close attention to is the size - you must ensure it fits you like a glove. Funeral events coordinator, Jay Flood, loves seeing people embrace colour in their everyday life as well as fighting against the norm at special events. “I love a life celebrated with a bit of colour as opposed to the sombre black theme people often follow at funerals.”
Scarves and snoods are the perfect accessories to mix and match with your outfits. Pair a fancy scarf with your favourite knitwear and you'll be ready to leave your house in as little as minutes. Also, mixing a floppy hat with a checkered scarf can have a huge impact on your overall look and feel. When in doubt, accessorise and you'll be one step closer to the glamorous look you need to feel great in your skin.
