How to dress for the fuller figure.....

Jacket - Monsoon Top - Dorothy Perkins  Jeans - New look Shoes - New look Bag - New look Jewelery - Topshop
I was requested by my god mother to know how to dress for the fuller women - when styling for the fuller women a wrap top is so flattering, the wrap detail on front of this top will hide your tummy and give you a lovely shape, v neck tops will elongate your neck and balance out your top half to your bottom half. Wear a printed kimono to add some glam but keep the prints small, Wearing boot cut jeans will make your legs look longer, give you great curves keep the bottom half dark to draw attention to your top half, add flat shoes, color coordinate with colors from the kimono for your accessories and your ready to go.
I will be posting more outfits for the fuller figure :-)

The New Trench was a big hit on the catwalk this season and on the streets! Their was so much inspiration for different ways you can wear this trend... I fell in love with it!  A trench is a must have in every women's wardrobe, it is great for dressing up and down outfits for any occasion. This season it's not all about the Camel Trench... No No No! Time to add prints and abit of color to your outfit, make a statement. I love wearing my trench when the weather is warm but cold as you know London summer nights can be cold so be sure to throw on this trench.
