Haute Holiday Fashions For The Curvy Divas In You!
December 6th, 2012 by Fashion Staff
Sometimes we curvy girls like to shy away from being fabulous during the Holiday season. Fearing that the bright colors, sparkle, shine and glitter will make us look, well, big. As a firm believer in loving the skin your in and making your body look its best, I’m encouraging my girls to adorn and embellish their curves because, confidence is your must have accessory. Not sure on what looks to experiment with this holiday season? Check out a few of our favorite haute holiday styles for the curvy diva in you below…
Winter White: This jacket from Cult Of California can be paired with anything, a skirt, jeans, or sequin pants. Its great for holiday time and or springtime. White doesn’t not make you look bigger, thats a MYTH! It ranges from size 8-28 and retails for $75.
The LBD: The little black dress is a go to option for any occasion. For curvy girls this dress works because it accentuates the waist and has a nice deep v neckline. Tea length dresses (which hit right below the knee) are very trendy right now and with the perfect pair of heels can elongate the body. This Marinia Rinadli Dress can be found online, price available upon request.
Swing Dress: This dress screams party and thats because of the color. The girl who wears this is all about fun and thats whats the holidays are all about. The dropped waist and full skirt are a perfect pairing with feminine curves. This Kate Spade Dress ranges from size 0- 14 and retails for $498.
Separates: Although I love the idea of popping on a dress for any occasion you can always rock separates. If dresses aren’t your thing Christmas sweaters, glittery tops and bejeweled cardigans can dress up any skirt or pants. I like this cardigan by Clements Riberio for Evans because its has just the right amount of jewel for the club or cubicle. You can find this cardigan online; sizes range from 10-28 and it retails for $115.
Holiday Skirt: This picture doesn’t due this skirt justice. One of Talbots feature holiday items, I’m calling this skirt a holiday/wardrobe Must Have! Its everything you could want in a skirt its big, black, and elegant! The textured ribbon like fabric is gorgeous and the fitted waist is divine. You can also pair this with any shoe from flats to booties. This is sold in both Talbot & Talbots Woman and goes up to size 24. This skirt is an investment and you can add it to your wardrobe for $130. PS: Tablots also carries petitie’s in both women and straight sizes which I recommend for those under 5’5.
Slik & Leather: A silk blouse and leather pants/legging have become my Fall/Winter “uniform.” This look can be for dinner or a night out with the girls. The silk top can take you anywhere and leather is also on trend. Combining the two with sandals (yes you can wear tights), pumps or jeweled flats would truly make this look ideal a holiday host. This entire look can be found on Nordstrom.com.
