1. The Perfect Fit Jeans
We kick off this style journey with a true classic - the perfect pair of jeans. Curvy ladies, investing in a pair that hugs your curves in all the right places is essential. Look for a mid-rise or high-rise option with a hint of stretch for comfort. Dark wash jeans are not only universally flattering but can effortlessly transition from day to night. Sante Grace has a stunning range of jeans that will make you fall in love with denim all over again. We carry light wash, med wash, dark wash, as well as green jeans. They all have a hint of spandex and last a long long time.
2. The LBD (Little Black Dress)
No wardrobe is complete without a Little Black Dress, and this applies to every woman, no matter her size. Opt for a style that accentuates your best features. A wrap dress, shift dress, or an A-line silhouette can be incredibly flattering. Our selection of LBDs that are both chic and curve-loving. I live in our Collette dress. It's made from modal so you can throw it in the wash. I've worn it over jeans, along with a heel or sandal.
3. Tailored Blazer
A well-tailored blazer can transform any outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. Look for a blazer that nips in at the waist, giving you an hourglass silhouette. Pair it with jeans, skirts, dresses, or even shorts for an instant style upgrade.
4. Versatile Blouse
Invest in a versatile blouse that can take you from office meetings to dinner dates. Opt for a blouse with a flowy silhouette, or try a wrap blouse to accentuate your curves. Patterns and colors are your friends; don't be afraid to experiment with different looks.
5. Statement Accessories
Accessories can elevate your look, and curvy women should never shy away from statement pieces. Bold necklaces, oversized sunglasses, and statement belts can add a touch of glamour to any outfit. They are the icing on the sartorial cake!
6. The Classic Trench Coat
A classic trench coat never goes out of style. It's the perfect outerwear for a curvy woman. A belted trench will cinch at your waist and create a fabulous hourglass shape. Don't forget to pop the collar for that effortlessly chic look. Channel your inner Ingrid Bergman!
7. Comfy and Stylish Footwear
Whether you're a fan of heels, flats, or sneakers, invest in comfortable and stylish footwear. Curvy women can absolutely rock high heels, but make sure they are comfortable and provide support. And when you want to relax, a pair of stylish sneakers will keep you on-trend and comfortable.
8. A Tailored Pencil Skirt or the perfect Pant
Pencil skirts are a curvy woman's best friend. They hug your curves in all the right ways and can be dressed up or down. Choose a tailored, high-waisted option for a truly flattering look. Or substitute the perfect pant. Our silk joggers haven taken me from the Emmy Awards to dates. They have pockets, which is essential for me; they're so comfy you can wear them anywhere.
9. Curated Statement Jewelry
Curated statement jewelry pieces are more than just adornments; they're expressions of your personality. Embrace bold and unique jewelry that reflects your style and makes you feel fabulous.
10. Confidence and a Smile
The most important piece in your wardrobe isn't an article of clothing; it's your confidence and your smile. Remember, fashion is an expression of self. Love your body, be kind to yourself, and wear your curves with pride.
