Here are some of the best style tips from the expert stylists in the industry:

1. Know what to accentuate

No one else but you knows your body best. Find something about your figure that you love, and show it off for people to admire. Whether it’s your showstopping cleavage, flawless legs, or ample behind, recognize what features you love best and are most comfortable to present to the public. Remember to pick just one part to showcase; displaying everything will make you look tacky regardless of your size.

2. Know what to conceal

While you have your best features, there are also the not-so-appealing ones that you might feel should be hidden from prying eyes. You might not be happy with some parts of your body because of factors like cellulite, scarring, saggy skin, etc. Exposing parts that you do not feel comfortable sharing with other people may just dwindle your confidence, which will have a great effect on your overall look. A simple style fix is to conceal these parts with sheer fabric or a nice cover-up.

3. Experiment with new styles

It might be tempting to stick to the usual pieces in your closet and to keep using the always slimming black as your go-to color, but stepping out of your comfort zone most often gives positive results. To be able to discover the trends that fit you best, you have to do some trial and error. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new styles. If you get one wrong, there is always tomorrow to try out another style.

4. Know where to shop

One of the worst mistakes to make is to shop in a store that doesn’t cater to your size. Avoid snobbish boutiques that only have sample sizes. More and more stores are now adding plus-size clothing to their lists; find those. Big brand Target launched Ava & Viv last month, a new women’s line of plus-size clothing. Crafted by Target’s in-house design team, the fresh label has affordable and trendy pieces made especially for curvy women.

Aside from Target’s new line, websites like Shopbop and Amazon carry plus sizes. Here are some lovely dresses that are also budget-friendly:
