Being thin is seen as more desirable or normal. In history, women who are larger in size were mostly preferred, just take a look at varieties of Classical artwork! Though there are a astonishing amount of plus size magazines and also fashion shows, that are devoted to curvy women looking fantastic.
Full length dresses can really bring definition to your legs while still covering them up. It is important however to wear a belt, such as the trendy scarf belts being worn this spring. The belt will help split your upper and lower body, making you appear more defined. This is perfect news for those of us who are less than fond of our legs, yet want to look elegant and not wear trousers or jeans.
Accessories can really turn an otherwise boring outfit in to a breath taking one. Simple additions such as a belt can really make or break the effect of what you wear.
Belts made of sash-like scarf types are really in this season. They help to bring in your waist and really look great. These look best in paler colours such as lilac and sky blue, and can really accent a blouse or dress.
By offsetting your accessories against the clothes you are wearing you can draw focus to areas of your body you want to show off, taking the eye away from areas you don’t. Always show off your greatest features, using accessories or styles that draw the eye to them.
Wear bright colours, stay away from mid-tones. Generally speaking mid tones such as russet and olive can look drab and unflattering for more curvy women, especially during Spring and Summer. Instead focus on colours such as lime and lemon along with bright purples, reds and blues. Especially trendy this season is lavender.
Or wear dark colours. These darker shades never really go out of fashion and are suitable all year round. Black is a very popular colour for the reason that it goes with anything! It is also slimming as it smoothes areas of your body making the eye see the areas as a whole rather than separate parts.
For this reason however, when wearing predominantly dark colours you should mix in other darker tones like navy blue or charcoal greys, which will still help distinguish the different areas of your body.
Stay clear of white, especially if it is on more figure hugging clothes. Where dark tones hide shadows and making areas seem smoother, white gives definition to these areas of light and dark. This effectively shows off every bump and curve, which makes it best avoided.

Even use whole outfits from magazines, as these have been perfectly matched by professionals, saving you all the hard work! Then just add your own accessories and adjustments to make the look truly your own.
