With winter fast approaching, one may find themselves asking that age-old question, What do I wear?
Fear not, there’s a few savvy, simple tips that will have you flawlessly dressing for your curves in no time.
1. Try On Garments
Before groaning and unloading the list of ‘why nots’, let’s go over the benefits of trying on clothing when shopping.
Educated purchases equals smarter spending. Testing out merchandise before buying will hone in on what types of fabrics and silhouettes fit best, which means no time wasted returning clothes – or worse, wasting money on clothes that don’t fit that you don’t return.

2. Buy Multiples of Pieces That Work
