The volume fashion trend continues to be hot this fall. While volume sounds like adding bulk, it can actually work wonders for many figures if added in proportion.
Skirts are getting fuller and look great with strapless tops. Fuller skirts add slight bulk at the bottom so all those who have fuller hips or a big bottom should try to avoid them. They also cut down the leg length by catching attention towards the width so they won't be the right pick for short legged women. They are also available with ruffled hemlines but make sure that your leg length allows for that as too much of ruffles at the hemline eat up the leg length. But they wonderfully balance a big bottom and broad shoulders as well. Apart from that, they are great for inverted triangle kind of figures with broad shoulders as they do the balancing act. Such women can also go for strapless tops as strapless bodice requires well constructed shoulders. But these tops also require shapely bust, too small or too big is immediately exaggerated. Fur trimmed strapless tops allow small busted women to fit in.
Mini length dresses are emphasizing the long and leggy silhouette. So short legged women can highlight their legs with these dresses to create a leggier silhouette but long legged women should go for longer dresses for similar reasons.
So far we talked about adding volume at the bottom which basically seemed to go down really well with inverted triangle figures, as they have bigger top and smaller bottom. So lets now move on to pumping up some volume on top too.
One of the most popular slimming styles are empire waist plus size evening dresses. This unique plus size dress style hides the natural waist by raising the waistline part of the dress to the bottom of the chest area. Basically, the natural waistline is hidden. It actually gives the illusion of a smaller waist.
The bottom of these plus size evening dresses can come in many styles. One of the variations is a pleated pattern immediately under the raised waistline. The more flare the dress has at the bottom, the slimmer the waistline appears. This is why A-Line plus size evening dresses with an empire waist are so appealing.
Voluminous cocoon coats, trapeze and swing coats are making rounds in all leading fashion weeks. Trapeze and swing coats camouflage a big bottom wonderfully. The round shouldered construction helps to smoothen straight shoulders and narrows down broad shoulders to an extent.
Collars are also getting bigger but they hardly add any bulk but their wide set construction helps to highlight the face. They are great for small busted women and help to carry attention upwards which helps to overshadow a big tummy or a big bottom. Big busted women have to be little careful with them. Don't go for too big collars if you are a petite else they will overwhelm you.
Big sleeves like bell and balloon sleeves are great for slim hipped women as they add width over there. But the width of such sleeves at the bottom doesn't make them suitable for women with short arms as they tend to foreshorten them. They also camouflage very thick or thin arms nicely.
Add volume on top while keeping bottom slim. Pairing them up with leggings is the hottest look. But for that you should have slim and shapely legs.
