Get out your favourite tan and false lashes girls, it’s occasion time! After almost two years (somehow 2020 seems like a blur, but at the same time it feels like we’ve been in lockdown for approximately 15 years) it’s SO difficult to get a dress that you feel comfortable and confident in, but is also enough of a statement to turn heads for your first occasion in two years. Between all of the different cuts, colours, and prints it can be super overwhelming when trying to choose the perfect dress But hey, that’s why you have us here to give you a run down of our favourite occasion wear pieces in our curve range right now!
We’re big believers that you can never go wrong with a black dress, which is exactly why we love this one from Only Carmakoma so much! The wrap style neckline is a universally flattering style that lifts the bust while giving the torso an elongated look. The elasticated waistline also pulls in the waist and draws attention to the narrowest part of your body while also offering maximum comfort. The lightweight material of the skirt skims over any lumps or bumps in the stomach and mid section in a really natural way.
It feels like 2021 has been the year of bold prints, and with bright colours and big floral patterns both being trends this Autumn Winter we know that this dress from Chi Chi London would be the perfect way to make a statement! The lining at the torso lifts the bust and draws the eye to the waistline while the split at the bottom of the dress adds movement here and breaks up the line of material meaning that the body won’t look drowned in the material.
If you’re more of a mini dress girl this smock dress is always a flattering style. This style skims over the natural shape making the figure seem smaller than it is and it’s super easy to pair a belt to add a bit of shape and define the waistline. The slight puff shoulders is always our go-to if we’re looking for a slimming effect on the arms, rather than a skin tight sleeve, while the frill detail at the bottom adds the perfect detail to bring a sweet, feminine touch to the style and draws attention to the legs. Don’t be afraid to show off those pins girls!
You all know how much we love a wider neckline, so it’s no surprise that this milkmaid dress made the list! This neckline always creates the illusion of curves in a really subtle way, while the tie at the bust adds a really feminine feel to the dress. The puff sleeve is again a super flattering effect on the arms, and is a go to for any of our pear shaped girls that might be a bit smaller on top and want to add volume to this area to create a balance. The shirred effect is always flattering on the figure as it pulls in and contours the body while the elasticated material throughout really adds maximum comfort to the dress meaning that you don’t feel restricted.
If you’re not a dress kind of girl, we’ve got you covered with this jumpsuit! Again, the wrap neckline lifts the bust and elongates the torso for a super slimming effect on the body, while the elasticated waistline pulls in the waist with the tie waist drawing attention to the waistline further and giving you the illusion of the iconic hourglass figure. The culotte style is always really flattering due to the lightweight flowing fabric on the legs, and lets not forget the essentials here: POCKETS!
