Figure flattering fall trend #4: Fetish dressing
The look: Dolce & Gabbana’s body con dresses, Louis Vuitton’s latex corsets, Alexander McQueen kinky leathers. Fall fashion is a seductive mood showing provocative clothing that flaunts women’s best assets.
Why it works for curvy women: Showing a hint of skin is sexy but it’s best to be tactical about where it is revealed. A slit on the side of a gown or skirt can be sexy and slimming, while showing lots of leg offers a long, lean look. Highlighting your décolletage also looks sultry without being too provocative.

Figure flattering fall trend #5: Collar necklaces

The look: Choker necklaces were big news on the fall runways as fashion designers made it a must-have bauble.
Why it works for curvy women: A show-stopping metallic choker draws the attention to your upper body and frames your neckline to beautiful effect.

Figure flattering fall trend #6: Menswear
The look: Who wears the pants? You do. This season is all about borrowing from the boys.
Why it works for curvy women: Crisp cuts and structured separates are the best way to accentuate your feminine figure. A tailored blazer in particular defines your waist while an oversize and ultra structured portfolio clutch can lend structure to your outfits as well.

Figure flattering fall trend #7: Flared trousers
The look: From Paul & Joe’s pineapple-hued pants to Marc by Marc Jacobs velvet versions to Frida Giannini’s Angelica Huston-esque fluid pairs for Gucci, flares were all over the fall runways. This season’s retro mood puts sweeping wide-leg trousers at the top of our winter wish list.
Why it works for curvy women: A dark wash flared jean or super wide tailored trouser is the most universally flattering cut and the ultimate way for curvy girls to hit their stride.

Figure flattering fall trend #8: Slouchy boots
The look: Bar none, Isabel Marant’s signature pointy-toed slouchy boots are the footwear that every fashion insider is angling to wear.
Why it works for curvy women: If you’ve ever had problems getting your boots to fit over your legs, this is the footwear for you! Make sure you opt for pointed toe versions to elongate your legs and wear them with fitted pants to keep the look polished.
