A+ for A-Line Silhouettes
A-line silhouettes pack a powerful style punch—wear them with aplomb! If you’re curvy, this style will accentuate your waist. Since you’re also petite look for dresses that hit a few inches above your knee to avoid overwhelming your frame.
Add Length with Monochrome
There’s a reason all-black is a classic look. Not only does a dark, tonal outfit create the illusion of a streamlined silhouette—it also avoids breaking up your frame. Monochrome palettes are your new style superpower, so start collecting dark colors like navy and black and wear them together. Yes, you can wear navy & black— we swear!
Put a Belt on It
Another trick of the trade? Invest in belts to style with loose fitting dresses, tunics or blouses. If you’re petite—tunics will be perfect for you lengthwise—just add a belt. Not only do they help accessorize and add a fun detail to your outfit, they’ll also accentuate your lovely curves.
Another quick style tip? Take advantage of the cropped denim fad—it’s totally on-trend and tailor-free. Look for jeans that have a higher waist to (again) accentuate your waist and define your curves.
