Oh the weather outside is frightful…but that’s no reason to hide your curves beneath layer upon layer of cable knit wool. Autumn/Winter is the season of the PARTY and we, along with our pals at eBay, want to help give you the confidence to love your shape, no matter what it is. Get ready to get yourself dressed to the nines and strut into all the parties with poise and conviction. Wave goodbye to shapeless shifts and cover-ups, and hello to va-va-voom shapes and styles that’ll make you want to pose for ALL the pics.
Here’s our guide to flawless Curve party dressing...
Body Con? Think Body CAN!
There’s no need to be afraid of body-con, just choose wisely. Instead of going for a thin, clingy fabric that will give you a lumpy, bumpy silhouette, choose structured materials that’ll nip you in at the waist and pull you in where you need it - just like these dresses - emphasising that killer hourglass shape that just OOZES sex appeal.
The Co-Ord trend is showing no signs of going away and it’s a great look to flatter curvier figures. Co-ordinated separates give your shape a natural divide at your slimmest point so they’re super flattering. Go with a bold print to bring the party, or keep it classy with black, metallic or monochrome. Have a little browse through these lovely sets...
Take it Back Now Y’all
Vintage silhouettes are always a win for fuller figures; after all, the hourglass was the shape du jour of the ‘50s! Often longer length, structured up top and floaty down the bottom, they’ll make your chest look incredible, your waist teeny-tiny and cover up any of those other bits that you don’t want on show. If you’re not comfortable with your arms out, you can easily whack on a bolero, cardi or pashmina and hey presto! Choose from this great selection here and you’ll basically be Marilyn Monroe.
Party Legs at the Ready
Ah! Black skinnies! Where would we be without you? What would we have done if you hadn’t bounded in to our lives nigh on 10 years ago? We’re so glad you’re here and we hope you’re here to stay. This party favourite just needs a pair of bright block heels (with matching lippy!) and a sequin, flowy top and you’re ready to dance the night away in the upmost comfort. Find a new pair of skinnies here.
Jump On It!
The 70’s trend is another one that’s showing NO sign of disappearing. We’re so happy because its floaty silhouettes are super flattering for curvy figures. Choose one of these wide leg jumpsuits paired with heels and chunky jewellery to feel both fashion-forward and comfy this party season.
It’s ALL About The Accessories
If colours, sequins and prints aren’t your thing, we totally get it. Black is a safety blanket for a lot of us, and the most attractive thing you can wear is CONFIDENCE. Pick a sexy black dress, jumpsuit or two piece and amp up the party with sparkly accessories. Pile on the jewellery and go for a colourful or stand-out shoe and bag combo. You'll find black dresses here and accessories here.
