Calling all apple-shaped curvy queens to center stage! Hey babe, we wanted to let you know that we are all about finding styles that fit and flatter your gorgeous apple-shaped figure for summer. We have put together a style guide that was made just for you! Below you will find valuable advice about which plus size boutique styles look best on your figure and how you can start wearing these pieces today!
Although the average woman is plus size, our bodies all look very different. There are a variety of shapes and sizes, which is why we want to help you identify with your unique shape and learn how to style it. But first, how do you know if you’re apple-shaped? There are a couple of general indicators that can help you determine if you are, in fact, apple-shaped. Do any of these sound familiar?
- Shoulders and hips are the same width
- Rounded shoulders
- Large bust
- Flat hips and buttocks
If you love to create the illusion of an hourglass shape, try wrap jumpsuits, dresses and rompers. The fun and feminine wrap detail cinches your waist, and it’s an extremely flattering fit for any body type.
Off the Shoulder
If you have an apple-shaped figure, you have beautiful rounded shoulders, and you should proudly show them off! Plus size off the shoulder dresses are a great way to embrace a fun and flowy style while getting to showcase your favorite assets. If you want a flattering fit, choose an off the shoulder dress that cinches just below the bust or at the waist, which will contour your curves perfectly!
Do you see a trend here? Dresses look incredible on your fabulous apple shape! Plus size boutique dresses with a high-low hemline are very flattering. The front of the dress comes up just under your knees and falls lower in the back, creating a beautiful silhouette. Pair this dress with a cute pair of heels or wedges to elongate your figure.
Jeans and a Cardi
Are you a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl? We hear you! Skinny jeans, bell bottoms, flare jeans and straight leg pants look amazing on your figure! Choose your favorite style, add in a v-neck—that’s French-tucked—and then top the look off with a long cardigan and a pair of black heels. This outfit will elongate your figure while also making you feel like the ultimate fashionista.
If you want to master a really chic look, pair a peplum crop top with a pair of ankle jeans with an unfinished hem. Top the look off with some chunky heels or sleek fashion sneakers. The peplum will create an hourglass silhouette and will balance out your figure. You could also wear a peplum with mini skirts or leggings!
Minis All Day
Looking to elongate and show off your legs? A black mini dress that’s loose-fitting will look so good on you! And you can dress it up or down for any occasion.
The Slip Skirt
Satin or silk slip skirts are a hot item for summer, and the best part is that they look amazing on you! Wear the slip skirt high-waisted and top it off with a one shoulder top or a long sleeve blouse—weather permitting. This is such a sleek look that you will want to repeat twice a week—at least!
At Chic Soul, we are strong believers in wearing what you want—regardless of your body type. Every body is a great body, and as long as you feel comfortable and confident, we’re happy!
