What is it about this time of year that makes it so difficult to find clothes that are actually flattering? (I'm blaming the fact that I ate my weight in roast potatoes over Christmas and the New Year!) Restrictions are being lifted and whether you're returning to the office or making your long awaited appearance in the local pub, one thing's for sure:we're well and truly ready to turn heads in style! Today's curve drop might be one of our best yet , chocked full of flattering styles, fun prints, and the perfect details. Don't believe us? Check out some of our favourites below!
This Only Carmakoma Floral Print Tunic Dress is the perfect transitional dress for the next few months. While the long sleeves and darker colours make it wearable for the Winter months while the floral print throughout the dress still ensure that you can get plenty of wear out of it throughout the Spring/Summer months as well.The pleats from the thigh to the hem add volume to the bottom of the dress without necessarily adding volume to the hips while the tunic style is a bit less fitted than usual and follows the natural shape of the body without clinging to it. Want to add a little bit of definition? It really is as simple as adding a little belt!
There's nothing we love more than a little bit of animal print, which explains exactly why we've been loving this Smock dress from Only Carmakoma so much! The V neck is always a really flattering style, in particular on our gals with a bigger bust, but the fact that the neckline on this one isn't as deep as other V necks means that it offers maximum support and coverage while still being flattering. The wider sleeves of this dress are always flattering on the arms, while the shirred effect on the wrists still adds shape to the sleeve. Similar to the above dress, I always love the smock dress to still allow you to dress up without clinging to the body. What more could you need?
This dress from Vero Moda Curve really is such a versatile style that can be dressed up with heels or dressed down like we did below with tights and boots, making it the perfect dress to bring you from day to night! This again has the flattering V neckline to show off that little bit of skin while still feeling totally comfortable. The wide sleeves are always such a flattering style on the arms and is a great go-to if you're a little bit uncomfortable showing off your arms. The elasticated detailing on the waistline really pulls in the waist and adds definition to the dress in such a natural way!
Our go-to for most nights out is a bodysuit and jeans and we've been loving this one below! This style really creates such a streamlined look and is perfect paired with jeans for the ultimate casual look. I just love the flutter sleeves on this one to cover the upper arms while still adding coverage in such a simple, flattering way!
There's something about the feminine, lightweight material of this black lace cocktail dress from Pieces curve! While cutouts have been a huge trend in the past few months, the sheer detailing on this dress gives you a more wearable option. The flared sleeves add volume to the wrist area which will balance out the arms and make them seem slimmer in comparison. The frill hem adds the perfect finish to the dress and adds volume to the legs without making the hips seem bigger than they are.
Looking to add a little bit of drama? It doesn't get much more dramatic than this puff sleeve top! This is such a simple style while the mesh puff sleeves add the perfect amount of edge to the top to really make it the talking point of the outfit. You all know how much we love a puff sleeve, and I often find that it's even more flattering in a mesh material like this one as it still shows off that little bit of skin and is perfect for the current cut-out trend but is still comfortable. This really is such a slimming effect on the arms, making this are seem even smaller due to all of the extra material surrounding it!
