It's officially dress up season! This time of year always sees the introduction of lots of luxe sequins, shimmer and sparkles. I love it! Although this year is not like most years, where a lot of us have been living in our comfy loungewear coming in and out of lockdowns. The prospect of attending any parties is practically non existent but that does not mean party season is completely cancelled. We will most likely be staying indoors enjoying house parties and kitchen discos within our small family bubbles. Though don't let that stop you from dressing up! I find it always lifts my spirits to wear something with a bit of sparkle and you don't have to completely dismiss your comfort wear either.
This year, like many other women I have gained some extra unwanted pounds which can make any women want to hide away in baggy clothes. Please don't do that though. Let's embrace our curves by dressing up in something nice. It can be tricky to style bigger boobs or curvy hips but there are some clever styling tricks and great styles out there for us curvy women that will help to fit and flatter our beautiful bodies.
I have compiled my edit of some hi/low party wear looks with my stylist tips that will help you to style your curves with confidence over the festive season. Enjoy!
