I have recently been asked to dig more into the mistaken idea that curvier girls are not allowed to follow fashions, as most trends tend to target skinny women rather then heavier ones. However, I wish to make clear that even though I strongly disagree with this ideology, I am in no shape or form saying that being over-weight is a positive thing or that clothes can cover up ALL imperfections and flaws that one might have. I am a firm believer that, with clothes one can take the eye away from some flaws by highlighting an area which one is more comfortable with.
I feel that, whereas a skinnier girl could pull off an outfit which is all pastels, a curvier woman could also pull off the trend by wearing a darker dress paired up with a pastel blazer and accessories. Similar to this are other trends such as the Neon trend which was very big last Spring/Summer season, and Graphic Prints, which have gladly been with us for quite a while now! Below one could see some pictures as an example :)!
Moreover, circle skirts and flowing dresses which are fitted at the torso tend to deceive the eye into believing that the person is skinnier than she actually is. This is because, as pointed out previously, clothing is all about highlighting good-looking areas while taking the eye away from the more negative ones.
