Every now and again I wake up in the morning feeling like I can handle anything and I can take on anyone. I have no fears no regrets, my thoughts are all about making that day a great day. That feeling translates through my wardrobe. I have no insecurities and I put on whatever I want and miraculously I look good in it and I feel good in it. I look in the mirror and say to myself, “Curves, you are looking right.”
Today, I had that feeling I like to call my animalistic vibe. It made me think about the Fall and how animal prints will be everywhere for the Fall season. I know many of you are afraid of the animal prints, but, I am here to tell you don’t be. Your curves will look great in animal prints. If you are still too afraid. Try animal print accessories like leopard print shoes or a zebra print bracelet.
Full figured Curves: Checkout the Lane Bryant dress in the leopard family. It will give you an hour glass figure. Notice how it pulls away from the stomach and floats around the hips to give your shape an equal balance. The small leopard print will make you look smaller.
Petite Curves: Checkout the Top Shop jumper in the pink animal print. This will highlight your curves in all the right places and it will accentuate a small waist as well as add length to your small frame.
Hour Glass Curves: Checkout the Kay Unger dress in a V-Neck fitted silhouette. This will accentuate the bust line as well as show off a small waist and voluptuous hips.
