Dangerous Curves Ahead

HAVING curves doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous! Whoever said you can’t wear certain styles or you have to hide your curves is wrong! Looking good has nothing to do with what people say or the size on the tag, it’s all about wearing whatever you want with confidence and showing off your best features. For those that wish they were a way to get rid or parts of their body that they don’t like and don’t want to go under the knife to remove, clothing is an accessible and inexpensive way to get the same results. Just look.

LOOK 1angerous-curves-ahead-5Tip: WHOEVER said if you’re curvy you can’t wear horizontal stripes didn’t know what they were on about! Use horizontal stripes as an element of your clothing instead of an entire look, pair it with vertical stripes to give a slimming effect and end it off with a solid hue which will help break up the impact of stripes.
