the outfit every curvy girl should have.

there’s a reason why i titled today’s post what i have. over the last several months, i’ve noticed a huge style trend among curvy women: high waisted denim with a bodysuit. it’s such a flattering look if you’re a woman with hips and even more so if you have a classic hourglass shape. here’s just a few example i found recently on IG:

bodysuits are a huge trend right now and they’re great because they are formfitting without being too tight. i find that black bodysuits are ideal because the old style tip is true, black is most slimming! high waisted jeans are also a really big hit and if you have the hips to fill them out, they can really highlight your figure & give it that extra pop. last, adding a third piece {see my post on that piece of style wisdom here} like a cute jacket can take this outfit from casual to put-together in an instant. i chose a bright pink faux fur jacket to really make it stand out but a leather jacket or a neutral zip up is a chic choice to take this outfit to the next level {by the way, pink fur was all the rage at NYFW!}.

i’ve always said, the biggest sign of a woman with great style is one who knows how to dress for her body. it’s important to find {and create} trends like this that are not only fashionable but also very flattering for us curvy women! it’s also a very inexpensive outfit to put together. i found my bodysuit for under $50 {but also bought another at h&m for under $15} and you can find a good pair of high waisted jeans without breaking the bank. and as always, be sure to make it your own and add your flair!

i wore this outfit on the second day of NYFW and received so many compliments on it! i was on a high all day because my look just really came together. this was my favorite ‘loud’ outfit i brought with me and rightfully so. i started off the day at a brunch by Twiirly x Amour Vert {i’ll be blogging the event later!}, then headed to the Jill Stuart presentation, followed by the ShopStyle Social House event where this fun illustration of my outfit was drawn. after grabbing a bite to eat with friends, a few of us headed to Clarkson Skylight for the Georgine show followed by the Julianna Bass presentation in Soho. it was a jam-packed day, but i wouldn’t have it any other way during Fashion Week… plus, i felt curvy & confident the entire day! xx black body suit {also love this}

    You are TOTALLY owning this look, girlfriend. As always, your style is bangin’. Just like I said on IG, I think this is an outfit for any girl, too – I adore wearing my bodysuit with my high-waisted denim. It makes me *feel* curvy even if I’m not haha. It’s so flattering and sexy!! Your addition of that fur coat just makes this outfit dynamite!

    Love love those glitter booties. You look so gorgeous. I love a good bodysuit especially when I need to tuck in my top. I have also fallen in love with the high waisted jeans.
