1. Invest in good underwear and body shapers
This is universal and important for every woman. The right underwear can lift your look and make your body look great in whatever you wear.
A great body shaper helps in smoothing in the tummy and hips and can make you look more refined and polished in clothes.
2. Wear skinny jeggings, not leggings, as pants
American celebrity stylist Susan Moses is of the opinion that leggings are not pants but meant to be worn underneath.
Instead of putting too much 'personal information' out on the streets, opt for a pair of jeggings which are thicker and more appropriate.
3. Understand the balance between fitted and too tight
This is something women of all sizes are often guilty of. There is a big difference between squeezing into a dress and a dress that sits right on your body.
If you wear a fitted dress and your the lines of your underwear show, then that is a sign you've gone a size way under.
Tailoring your outfits and shopping through weight changes can also help you strike this balance.
4. Wear the right size shoes
Shoes are a great way of adding some personality and flair to your outfit, without going all out.
Go for classic pumps in a neutral colour for an illusion of longer leges and avoid straps around the ankles as they can make legs look shorter.
5. Follow fashion influencers with your body shape for inspiration
It will do you no good to draw inspiration from women with thick and curvy physiques if you're on the slimmer side - and vice versa.
Instagram boasts of millions of style influencers with various body types. Finding influencers with a similar body shape can inspire your confidence to try new things and show you what’s possible for your shape!
6. When in doubt, wear a wrap dress
This is a style that fits every body shape and is extremely flattering. The same can’t be said for any other style of dress, which is why this is unarguably essential for plus-size women.
Unsure of what to wear to that event? Try a wrap dress and don't forget those pumps!
These tips will make you look stylish and more confident about your body.
