New York Fashion Week is just wrapping up and there have been some beautiful new designs shown on the runways.
But runway models aren’t built like petite and curvy girls. A design is going to look completely different on a 5 foot or 5’2″ frame with curves than it does on the 5’10” model that wore it on the runway, and it’s not always going to look good. How can you choose and adapt runway styles to work with your figure?
Here are three suggestions for taking “Ready to Wear” fashion and making it “Ready to Wear Well”:
1) Don’t forget your figure when considering trends. Like in my last post about button-down shirts – as trendy or popular as loose, drapey, or unfitted outfits may be – they won’t necessarily look great on every figure. Those styles, in particular, tend not to look good on curvy girls. Like with my button-down experience – they tend to make us look boxy and larger than we really are.
Halogen Cutout Back Jacquard Dress (On Sale for $49)
Last Saturday, a friend and I hit up Michigan Avenue for brunch and a morning of Labor Day Sale shopping. We started at Nordstrom for their 40% off Clearance Sale. I’d heard good things about the Halogen Petites Line carried at Nordstrom and I wasn’t disappointed.
