Color Choice

All colors may look good on the rainbow, but when it comes to choosing the correct color for yourself, you need to make some serious fashion choices. Choosing the perfect dress for yourself requires much effort and involves finding flattering shades that will make you look like the belle of the ball. Ever wonder why black is a universally-loved color? Well dark colors downplay the heavy areas of the body making you look slimmer, and black being the ultimate neutral, it in no ways clashes with the undertones of your skin colour. You can also go for bright colors like yellow or pink, just make sure to incorporate a sleek, dark coloured belt at the waist which will both de-emphasize the waist as well as make the torso look longer.

Favorite Fit

The fit of any dress – be it on any body type having any types of curves, apple, pear, hour-glass – is the most important factor in any outfit and can make or break an otherwise perfect outfit in no time. If you are curvy, choose semi-fitted dresses that softly follow your curves and doesn’t cling onto your body. If you are bottom heavy, choose a silhouette that will draw attention to your waist but go for a straight fit if you are heavy mid-section. The old rule of bigger the better doesn’t apply when it comes to oversized or baggy clothes for you. You need to show off those amazing curves if you don’t want to end up looking like a sack in shapeless or oversized dresses. Go for fabrics that give the perfect amount of stretch without riding up or looking too snug, and you are sorted!

Style Game

Want to score full points with your ‘dressy’ move? Well, all you need to do is choose the correct style and silhouettes of dresses that will flatter your body shape like no other. Being a curvy girl, you need to choose A-line dresses that that are made out of sturdier fabrics like cotton, denim, rayon or polyester as these retain the shape and structure of the dress without clinging on like satin and chiffon does.  Peplum dresses or cinched-at-the-waist maxi dresses also help make your waist look narrow, but make sure the dress is longer or midi-length for a balanced look.
