Loving yourself and being confident is the key to success, never let your body type hold you back. Dressing for your beautiful shape, will not only ensure you look stylish, but will help to make you feel happy and confident. And that’s what really matters!
Accepting your body and what you’ve got is the most important factor for your personal style and confidence. Everyone, no matter what size or shape has insecurities and its ok for you to have bad days but accepting your body, for all your perceived flaws and all your wonderful assets will allow you to make better style decisions. Wearing baggy shirts and shapeless clothing might cover your lumps and bumps but it also makes you look like a potato. Dress for your shape and yes, round is a shape! So wear fitting clothes that flatter you don’t hide beneath oversized fabrics.
The power of good accessories cannot be ignored. Whether that’s a statement belt, necklace or mega earrings you can jazz up basic shirt and jeans combo with accessories to create a wow factor. Never underestimate the power of good tailoring. The problem with some plus size clothes is that they can sometimes be a bit shapeless, but at a low cost you can have dresses nipped in all the right places and to suit your exact body. The result is beautiful fitting clothes that you can feel happy and confident in. Knowing your fabrics is important, avoiding the bad ones even more so. Cheap fabrics often fade and are flimsy to wear it’s also bad for the environment to have too many items considered ‘throwaway fashion’.
The colours you wear can speak your mood! And as style and dressing is all part of self-expression, think about what you’re portraying with your outfit. Now, remember the colour wheel from school, with the complimentary opposites? These are the colour combinations that work best in style too. Sometimes, online shopping can be stressful when you’re unsure of which size to buy. That’s why knowing your measurements can be very helpful, as it allows you to shop for fit rather than by size and will result in less returns and a happier you when your clothes arrive!
Your hair really helps to frame your face and adds an extra statement to your look. If you’re feeling low in confidence or have an event coming up, get a blow wave or style your hair in glamorous curls. Making that extra bit of effort with your hair will lift your mood and as we keep saying, confidence is the best accessory! When it comes to your personal style, you don’t have to follow trends if you don’t like them. Allow your style to be a reflection of your personality and most importantly, feel confident and comfortable in what you’re wearing.
