What To Wear If…

Filed under: boyish frame, fashion fix, wardrobe, what to wear if — Danielle @ 9:39 pm

…you’ve got a boyish frame.

If you have a boyish frame and you’re dying to have some curves, check out the following items that will visually Beyonce-ify you a bit.

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Ruffle Shirtdress $168 at Nordstrom. The ruffles at the top create visual curves and the belt cinches the waist which helps to accentuate your hips giving you an all-around feminine frame.

DKNY Active Trench Coat $158 at Nordstrom. Again, the cinching of the belt creates a waist and accentuates hips and thighs. The details in the lapels and sleeves add visual curves.

Soia & Kyo Asymmetrical Trench Coat $285 at Nordstrom. The belt, the collar, and the pleating of the bottom of this coat are all perfect elements to create curves.

French Connection ‘Calamity’ Blouse $88 at Nordstrom. Don’t be afraid to puff up your chest in this puffy sleeved blouse with a bow.

Rock & Republic ‘Kurt’ Stretch Jeans $207 at Nordstrom. The wider spacing of the pockets teamed with the flap pockets and the elaborate design will help to create curve on your derriere.

Sara Berman High Waist Pants with Bow Detail $300 at Nordstrom. The same curve-creating qualities of the jeans above, but in a work-friendly fabric.
