A Curvy Girls Style Guide
The Wardrobe Stylist: Based on this season’s trends (kimono, black & white, nautical inspiration, khaki, mesh, all-over denim), how does it translate into full figure fashion? What should compose a curvy girls style guide?
Sherry Lee: Fashion first I always say. Find a trend that works for you and mix it with some of your favourite pieces already in your closet. I am all over the new khaki trend. I have a khaki maxi skirt and a khaki jacket that I wear over my favourite pair of jeans.
It is all about feeling confident in what you are wearing! Mix it up and try it out!
The Wardrobe Stylist: What are the styles you recommend most to your clients for a night out?
Sherry Lee: You can never go wrong with a little black dress. This season why not try a little white dress? Team it up with a fabulous pair of heels and a great bag.
The Wardrobe Stylist: Is there anything you advise they stay away from?
Sherry Lee: Less is more. Keep it simple. Be cautious about over accessorizing. I like to pick 3. For me it is usually earnings, heels and a great bag!
The Wardrobe Stylist: What is a classic piece that can be worn with almost everything you recommend to full figure women?
Sherry Lee: I live by this phrase: “confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear.” I put that above everything else. But my personal go to piece, and something I take with me everywhere, is a black blazer. Put it on with your jeans or over your favourite dress. Classy and stylish.
The Wardrobe Stylist: What brands/designers do you recommend to your clients that are really on the ball when it comes to full figure fashions?
Sherry Lee: City Chic for everyday, Monif C for swimwear, Igigi for dresses, and ASOS curve for trendy and fun.
