Looking to update your wardrobe with some trendy new pieces but aren’t sure which ones will suit your body shape? Here are five top summer trends to suit any body shape…
Breton stripes are one of those completely timeless trends that come in year after year, and contrary to popular belief, they can be super flattering for curvy girls too. The best styles to pick are horizontal, slim lines, as wide lines may exaggerate your curves. What’s even better is that they look great with pretty much anything too, so when you invest in a breton top, you know you’ve got it for life.
Wide Leg Trousers
Wide leg trousers are super hot right now and look great on so many body types. Their high waistline cinches your waist to accentuate your killer curves, and if you’re top heavy, their floaty style will add balance, and if you’re conscious about your lower half, their straight style will have a similar effect. If you’re not in to skirts in the warmer months either, these ones featuring a colour-pop floral pattern will give you a suitably seasonal look whilst keeping you feeling comfortable in the heat.
Oriental styles seem to be cropping up all over the highstreet at the moment with many of them featuring eye-catching colours, pretty patterns, and thick waistbands for a defined silhouette. This top with retro airy sleeves will keep you feeling cool, but will also give you added coverage if you’re not keen on your arms, but it’s all part of the vibe. Many of the styles, like this top, are wrap over too, which are known for being universally flattering to figures of all shapes and sizes.
