This post is part of a new direction I’m taking with Shoe Smitten, in which I’ll be including some general shopping tips while maintaining a focus on women’s shoes. After all, a shoeaholic’s gotta have a fabulous wardrobe to go with her enviable shoe wardrobe! In today’s post, we celebrate curves and discuss how to dress them to impress.
Kelly Brooke: Steal Her Style
Kelly Brook is the definition of curve queen – she proudly flaunts her svelte, hourglass shape – which nips in at just the right places – in all manner of gorgeous garms. She’s not only an inspiration to those of us wanting to look good in plus size clothing but also to all girls out there who want some style advice from one of the hottest gals about town!
One look Kelly pulls off to perfection has got to be the retro vibe – think beehive hair, vintage bargains and a whole lot of polka dot and you’re onto a style steal. Let’s take a closer look at what the sexy star pulls off:
Kelly has described vintage dresses as, “fun, sexy and classy,” and brands them an “inspiration for everything.” She’s got so many from all over the world and it’s not hard to see why her obsession with retro dresses keeps growing – she looks amazing whenever papped in them. Try and hunt out styles like poppy print baby doll dresses for a cute 50s look, low slung off the shoulder numbers for that flapper feel and embroidered lace which just screams vintage.
Kelly’s favourite decade for style is the 50s so if you want inspiration think Brigitte Bardot and the French Riviera and you’re onto a winner. High waisted denim shorts and knotted tees are a really easy way to look effortlessly chic – why not add a polka dot head band to really offset your outfit? Alternatively, if you want to really make a statement then opt for bright coloured polka-dot high-waisted trousers and a neutral coloured blouse – white or black will look phenomenal with red polka dot trousers.
If you’re after the ultimate vintage-feminine look then make sure you spy out garms with clinched in waist – they echo the curvaceous style of the 50s and will give you a floaty, feminine feel. Full skirts are a key look here so hunt out this style and team with halter-neck balconette bra tops that show half an inch of midriff and a subtle amount of cleavage.
Kelly’s style is all about flattering the female silhouette – enhancing waists and sculpting curves in all the right places. So, if you want to embrace your femininity and look raring to go in retro then start stealing Kelly Brook’s style!
