Because casual CAN equal chic for curvy girls...
Dressing down is the new dressing up. And whether you are heading out for a weekend brunch with friends, or an early morning walk with your four-legged friend – we’ve found casual chic clothing that will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe.
While tailored outfits are often the go-to choice for curvy girls, casual wear has experienced a revolution for women of all shapes and sizes. From the block-colour shift dress that’s perfect for any occasion, to the on-trend trainers that can take you from day to night. Here are six of the key casual pieces no curvy girl should be without.
Casual clothes you have to have
1. The oversized jacket
The ideal finishing touch for any outfit. Throw over a pair of jeans and a loose-fitting blouse. To smarten up, add a printed scarf or co-ordinating accessories.
2. The smart trainers
These streamlined numbers come in a variety of colours, shapes and widths. This season, a pair of camel coloured trainers are a fashionista’s best friend, whatever the weather. Suede-effect trainers may need a little extra care, but they will add touch of understated elegance to any outfit.
3. The shift dress
This understated cut is a dream. Cinching in slightly at the waist and fanning out to skim over your curves, the shift dress is the ultimate curvy girl wardrobe staple.
4. The must-have jeggings
Jeggings are the fuss-free trouser choice for curvy girls. A variety of effects from stone-washed to dark denim, means there’ll never be a dull fashion day!
5. The ballet pumps
A ballet pump in a striking shade or print – think cobalt blue or leopard print – is the making of any outfit.
6. The long waistcoat
This trend has endured season after season, and we can see why. With no restrictive buttons to contend with and a midi length that flatters a variety of shapes, it’s everyday wear at its best.
