Crop Tops
Crop tops have made a major return in the fashion world and these tops are a perfect choice for when you want to accentuate your curves. Crop tops are perhaps most flattering to those who have an hourglass figure, but anybody can rock a crop top with some confidence. Don’t assume that crop tops are only for 20-year-old supermodels, body types of all sizes can make the crop top work for them. Pair a crop top with a flowing maxi skirt for a flirty, feminine look or grab your skinnies and a lightweight cardigan for a more conservative outfit.

Ruffles dress

Tops, dresses or skirts – anything with ruffles is your friend when you are looking to accentuate your curves. In addition to being great at helping you show off curves, ruffles create interest by enhancing what you’ve already got. If you have more of a rectangle shaped body, then wearing ruffles can create the illusion of curves.

Wide-Legged Trousers
Skinny jeans will always have a place in our hearts and closets, but wide-legged trousers are a major trend for spring. These pants are super versatile; they can be dressed up or dressed down and they come in so many styles. These pants add volume to the bottom half of your body, which highlights your waist and balances you if you have broad shoulders. To really enhance your curves, pair wide-legged trousers with a tucked in cami and add a statement belt to your waist.

Horizontal stripes

Horizontal Stripes
Vertical stripes naturally make the eyes focus up and down, and horizontal stripes do the exact opposite. Horizontal stripes draw the eyes to the sides of your body, and they can help to enhance your natural curves, or to create curves if you have a more athletic body type. Spring 2016 runways were full of stripes in a wide variety of clothing items. A striped top is one of the easiest ways to incorporate some stripes into your spring wardrobe, but designers featured elegant gowns, casual dresses and flowing maxi skirts for spring 2016.

Maximizing your curves is all about feeling confident and beautiful no matter what shape or size your body is. Spring 2016 featured so many styles that are perfect for showing off and creating curves. Play with different colors, textures and outfit combinations to find the pieces that make you feel and look amazing.
