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}
