The best way to work your curves is to dress for them. From switching up the color of your jacket to wearing the right cut for your body, there are tons of ways to play up your assets while minimizing your trouble areas. The key is to learn which jackets work to flatter your body best so you can show your style with confidence.
Know how to work your proportions to make your body look its best. Steer clear from longer jackets that'll just make your bottom half look bulky. Instead, opt for a cute cropped jacket. Pretty much any style will work, as long as it falls right around the hip. If you want to pack an extra punch, wear a super-cropped jacket. The crop works to elongate and naturally slim your bottom half.
Wear It Unbuttoned
Rather than buttoning up your jacket, opt for one that will look just as cute unbuttoned. It'll create a more uniform line for your bottom and make your body look more proportioned. Underneath, wear a top that you love because you'll obviously be showing it off!
Try a Bright Color or Print
Switch up you style and throw on a jacket in a bright color or a pretty print. Pair it with a basic bottom. This will draw attention to your top half and naturally proportion your body out. Plus, it'll make your look much more fun. So pick your favorite color and buy yourself a fab, colorful and adorable jacket.
Stay away from scoop-neck jackets and instead slip on V-neck ones. The downward facing "V" actually creates an illusion of your body parts being more in proportion with each other. If you're wearing a low-cut top, it'll also expose a little bit of sexy skin, which will naturally focus attention upward. Remember the wider the neckline, the slimmer your thighs will look so stock up on the V-neck jackets.
