12 quick and simple tips to flatter your figure

Here are some quick and simple tips to always look your best.
  • Clothing is so much more than something we put on our bodies, it's a way we express who we are. There are several ways to rock what you wear, and here are 12 of the quickest and simplest ways to do so.

  • 1. Be confident

  • Confidence is always attractive, and if you are confident with what you are wearing, others are bound to find it flattering. Pick out clothes you know will bring out your inner confidence and strut them with style.

  • 2. Try darker on bottom and lighter on top

  • A darker skirt or pant paired with a lighter blouse or shirt is a power combo. The darker color on bottom allows the eye to be drawn upward to the lighter color, as well as camouflage any areas that you might not be the most comfortable with.

  • 3. Cinch your waist

  • A great way to enhance those curves is to cinch your waist with a belt. Throw it over a dress or wear one with your favorite pair of high-waisted jeans and you'll be rocking what your momma gave you.

  • 4. Try a maxi dress

  • 5. Throw on a cute jacket

  • When the weather starts to cool down, reach for a cute jacket. Jackets are great because they usually have more structure and tailoring to them, which helps show off your figure while keeping you warm at the same time.

  • 6. Try a pair of skinny, dark-wash jeans

  • The words "skinny jeans" may scare off some, but a nice pair of well-fitting, dark-wash skinny jeans flatter almost everyone. These types of jeans can also go with almost any top, making them a go-to style all year long.

  • 7. Wear a small heel

If you are looking to throw on something complimentary to your body but easy to style, look no further than these items.
