B eing a lady is not easy. You have to behave a certain way, walk a certain way and dress in a manner that a lady supposed to dress. And then comes fashion which dictates the look that you are supposed to wear or make-up that looks right on trend for the season. There are some of you out there who just don’t feel the need to follow these trends. Body-conscious and self-deprecating are just not their thing. Who cares if you are too skinny or a little too curvy compared to those images that you saw on TV. Look up to these ladies and embrace whatever it is that you have!
Let’s start by embracing your curves. Even the runways seem to agree and the models are sent down the runway looking all va-va voom in dresses and skirts that accentuate the womanly curves. Tight on the waist and voluminous on the hips. It is no longer about looking waif and unhealthy. Maybe it’s time to stow away those Herve Leger bandage dress and welcome this new hourglass return.
Here are some of the looks from Fall 2012 to give you some ideas on how to get started with this new trend.
This jewel-encrusted Lanvin is perfect for those who love to look sexy but a little bit edgy. The shade of grey suggests the moodiness of the winter season but the embellishment keeps the party elements in check
Thakoon gives us this very prim and proper take of the trend. The shiny skirt adds glamor to a rather plain and granny-chic look.
This Peter Pilotto has a lot going on but it still works. The print is stunning and the cut-outs give this long dress the sexy twist it needed.
This is how you do suit to work. Stella McCartney‘s way!
This two-piece from Carven is very simple and understated.
The same Burberry Prorsum signature trench but with added curve and volume
Notice how this Giorgio Armani shift has less crystals at the bottom? It is so that the bottom doesn’t look too heavy.
Now it’s time for you to embrace your curves!
