Curvy style

Thérèse Henkin high­lights la­bels to feel great in and fashion ad­vi­sor Ljubenka ad­dresses a ques­tion of bal­ance.

COLOUR TREND: Bur­gundy

If bold and bright isn’t your thing, try opt­ing for bur­gundy as a way to in­cor­po­rate colour into your wardrobe. It’s ver­sa­tile and easy to wear for most skin tones.

Dear Ljubenka...

I am bot­tom heavy! I’m small around the waist and bust, but thick around the hips and legs. And I am very self-con­scious about my chubby an­kles. What can I wear to look more bal­anced?

I rec­om­mend that you em­brace dark colours on the bot­tom half, such as dark trousers and stock­ings, as these have a slim­ming ef­fect. Wear clothes that fit well, but aren’t tight fit­ting (there is a dif­fer­ence). Gen­er­ally, opt for a fit-and­flare sil­hou­ette. You want to em­pha­sise the top half of your body and draw the eye up­wards. Be bold and dar­ing with colour, print, graph­ics and tex­ture on the top. Tall an­kle boots are great for win­ter footwear as they de­tract from larger an­kles.

Send your curvy-style fashion ques­tions to fuller-fig­ure model Ljubenka Milunovic at awwed­i­tor@bauer­me­dia.co.nz, with the sub­ject line ‘Ask Ljubenka’.
