10 staple items in a curvy woman’s closet

Every woman knows that there are some key essential outfits to own. These outfits are the corner stone of every wardrobe. For those who embrace the minimalist lifestyle, the key essentials are all they need. Different pieces can be interchanged and paired together to form a different outfit. Here’s a YouTube video, if visuals work better.

For the curvy woman, here’s a list of 10 items that form the cornerstone of our wardrobe

  1. Leggings

Leggings are a must have because they are so versatile. If you are going for a casual look, they can be paired with a long t-shirt and either flats or wedge shoes. Pair with a tank top and sneakers for a work out. And with a dress and heels for a more dressed up look.

2. Maxi skirt

The maxi skirt is my go-to outfit on hot days when I don’t want anything constricting my legs. They come in a variety of styles: asymmetrical, A-line, short, midi and long. They can be paired with a tank top, a turtle neck or any other form fitting top.

3. Pencil skirt

The pencil skirt is for the corporate gals. Paired with high heels, this look is an instant head turner for those who can pull it off.

4. Belts

Belts are a curvy gals best friend. On those days when you don’t want to a form fitting outfit, throw on a shapeless dress and go. Or use a belt to instantly transform the look.

5. Heels

High heeled shoes show off your curves. Simple. There’s just something feminine and sexy about heels. When I’m wearing them, I feel different, confident, bold, sexy. Even my walk feels different. Plus they vamp up any outfit.

6. Firm bras

A firm bra is another must have especially for those of us with ample bosoms. An ill-fitting bra ruins your outfit, your confidence and your posture. Saggy boobs give the illusion of slouched shoulders while a firm bra does the opposite. A good, firm bra will probably make a dent in your savings, but it’s a worthwhile expense.

7. Shapewear

These cover up a multitude of rolls and cellulite and gives your outfit a smooth finish.

8. Black outfits

Black outfits are flattering on a curvy woman. They give a slimming effect and a nice silhouette. Another versatile staple for the curvy woman’s wardrobe, be it tops or dresses.

9. Jackets

Can be worn over tank tops, dresses or any tops at all. They come in a variety of styles as well, ranging from formal to casual.

10. Peplum top

A peplum top also hides some of those offending rolls. I wear a peplum top on days when I’m feeling bloated. Also a versatile piece that can be paired with skirt, trouser or leggings.
