Let’s talk about silhouettes. I think it’s so valuable to know one or two outfit silhouettes that make you feel your best. For me, it’s a top and skirt like this set, any kind of midi dress or high waisted jeans with a fitted shirt. These are outfits that I know flatter my natural shape and therefore, make me feel confident.
I was able to quickly determined this because I happen to have the unusual job of photographing myself in different outfits for a living. But if that isn’t your chosen career (!!), I think this video is really helpful.
I consider myself somewhere between curvy and pear as my hips are my largest measurement and therefore I typically feel most comfortable in pieces that are loose and flowy on the bottom – skirts, maxi dresses, midi dresses. When it comes to pants, I like a straight or culotte leg with a super high waist to accentuate that feature.
I recently discovered these super high waist jeans designed for curves and I am obsessed (runs TTS). So much so I then bought this pair and this pair. Do you have some go-to silhouettes that you feel your best in?
