SOS: Winter Wardrobe With Curves

Accessories

SOS ALERT!

We received an SOS from a fellow shopper looking for a new winter wardrobe. The guidelines were simple: we needed to find clothes that would work with her curves, were stylish but not too ‘young’ and on the practical side, would keep her warm.

Most of us get used to shopping for our shape, whether we need to consider our boobs, hips, tum or bum – usually one part of our body is bigger or smaller than we’d like it to be!

From experience we’ve found that stores like COUNTRY ROAD, SEED HERITAGE and even ASOS make clothes that are a more relaxed and comfortable fit – designed for women, not just girls.

We love skinny jeans and leggings in winter with oversized tops and lots of boots and jackets. And while it’s easy to darken your wardrobe when it gets colder, a little colour goes a long way.

And one more shopping tip – read the buyer’s reviews on the store sites – most of the items we’ve pulled here have had great feedback from customers who bought them.

Hope you find something you like!

You might be surprised how slimming a figure hugging dress can be (and this one is too cheap not to just order it and try it on). Own your curves, clockwise from left:
