I’m not sure who made up the “rule” that curvy girls must wear dark, solid bottoms but I’m here to tell you that it’s totally FALSE.

I am a firm believer in wearing clothes that fit and flatter your figure however that doesn’t mean you must stick to dark colors or stray away from patterns and bold colors.

The most important thing about wearing  any pants at any size is the FIT.  That means you should be able to breathe with the pants on, the pants should not be pushing into your sides (creating the “muffin top”), NO CAMEL TOE, and most importantly you should be comfortable in them.  The pants fitting properly and you being comfortable should be your only rule when wearing pants and jeans.

Because colorful and printed trousers and jeans tend to make a loud and bold statement try to pair them with a solid top (if the jeans/pants are printed) or a more subtle toned top (if the jeans/pants are a bright color).

Most importantly HAVE FUN with it – Colors and prints add so many dynamics to ones wardrobe and can really add some flavor to your style.

My favorite’s this season have to be red trousers and floral skinnie’s!

What about you ladies, have you incorporated any printed or colorful pants to your wardrobe?

 

For the Curvy Girl: Bold Trousers & Jeans

Well Ladies, the warm weather is here and it looks like it will be staying!

I love hot weather but I don’t like being hot & sweaty (not a cute look) so I tend to opt for dresses and rompers during the warmer months as they keep me a lot cooler and comfortable.  Aside from dresses and rompers being a cooler choice I personally love the lady-like and versatility wearing dresses gives you – they are great for work and casual wear, you can dress them up and down etc. Rompers and Jumpsuits also can be worn for work or play (depending on how you style them) and I decided to add them in this mix since I’ve had a mild obsession with them lately! :)

My favorite choices can be found at ASOS, Forever 21, Fashion to Figure and Dorothy Perkins!

Eloquii is a brand developed by The Limited for the full-figured curvy woman. Eloquii offers the similar if the not the same pieces from the limited. Just because you are not a size 2 doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable. This brand shows the curvy woman how to embrace her curves at affordable prices. The pieces are stylish, classic, and on trend. You will not be disappointed. One thing that I love about Eloquii is that you are able to shop by body type. You submit your measurements and they will determine your body type and select pieces that will best compliment your body. It’s like having your own personal stylist at your finger tips!

Hey lovelies!

So I’ve started a new feature for my curvy girl readers. I want Her Goody Bag to be a place where all women can get style advice and inspritation. This feature “For Curvy Girls” will be once a week and will feature new designers, photos for outfit inspiration, and much more.

Today I decided to start with SWAK Designs. SWAK- Sealed With a Kiss

Via SWAK’s Facebook Fan Page

“Founded by folks who believe fashion should be for everyone. We offer trendy plus size fashion at accessible prices. We believe fashion should be fun & affordable! Show off your natural assets & rock your wardrobe with quality pieces that won’t break your budget.”

Company Overview

“Let’s make this clear: Cute and trendy clothes shouldn’t need to cost and arm and a leg in order to make it into a gals closet. Being a size 14+ doesn’t mean you automatically have a ton of disposable income on hand to keep yourself looking fierce, fashion forward and ready to conquer the world. If you are like me you want to wear the latest styles (which, lets face it, are still hard to find if you’re plus size) without having to commit large portions of your paycheck.”

Mission

It”s our mission to bring women like you trendy and affordable plus size clothing. Point blank. Why? Because we feel that fashion should be fun and it should be accessible. Sealed With a Kiss Designs is our way of giving you access to trendy, affordable clothing without the hassle of malls and with reassurance that, YES, cute clothes do come in your size”
