The 5 Essentials Every Curvy Woman Needs

By on October 11, 2019, in My Style Profiles

Knowing that your closet is stocked with flattering basics makes it so much easier to have great personal style. We’ve put together this list of curvy essentials, along with some ideas for finding just the right pieces for your closet.

Great Jeans For Curvy Women

No wardrobe is complete without at least one pair of great jeans, though most women will tell you that having three or four pairs (maybe even five) is optimal. Some curvy women struggle with finding the right denim style, which is why we offer a full range of cuts, sizes, and washes. In many cases, we found that straight leg jeans often work great on curvy figures, as they provide both balance and proportion while going great with flats, heels, and boots.

Get Back to the Classics

While tunics, T-shirts, and tanks add color and fun to your wardrobe, it’s also essential that you have at least a few classic button-down and wrap style blouses in your closet. Why? Because these are versatile pieces that not only go well with other wardrobe items, such as tailored skirts and trousers, but they are also appropriate for most occasions.

Put on Pullover Sweater

Pullover sweaters are wardrobe staples, and for good reason. They help keep you warm and are easy to style. V-neck sweaters can look particularly sleek when paired with slim-fitting jeans or trousers along with boots or heels, whereas a tunic sweater is a great topper for leggings and flats.

Suit Up With a Jacket

Jackets are great layering pieces and are really handy when the weather is unpredictable. Our favorites can do double duty as both outerwear and as an indoor garment. Many curvy women like to wear a tank top and a contrasting color underneath a dark jacket or cardigan for a slimming silhouette.

Don’t Forget Your Basic Black Pants

Basic black pants are the key to preventing wardrobe emergencies. Black goes with most other colors and a simple trouser style can be paired with just about anything else in your wardrobe to create an appropriate, flattering outfit. We particularly love how the same pair of black pants can be dressed down with a pair of sandals and a T-shirt and yet clammed up with a sparkly tunic top jewelry, and heels for a night on the town.
