Flaunt those curves!

While having a great eye for fashion is important to keep your style game strong, being fashionable is only half the battle because knowing how to dress for your body type is just as important, maybe even more so.  Here at the Candy HQ, we love a Candy Girl with killer curves. But while being a curvy gal is awesome, it's no secret the dressing a curvy body can be tricky, and sometimes challenging, too. Because a college gal doesn't usually have a personal stylist on call to help her dress her curves up, we're sharing with you the basic fashion dos and don'ts for the curvy gal the Beyoncé in you needs to know.

Do! Stock up on V-neck pieces. A V-neck cut doesn't only flaunt your always flattering collarbones, and create an illusion of toner arms. It's plunging cut also creates the illusion of an elongated body, which makes you look taller and leaner in a snap! Throw in a few layered pendants into the mix for a chic LOTD.

Don't! Rock pieces with embellished designs around the hip area. While we think that rocking an embellished top or bottoms is fun, pieces with embellished designs around the hip area can look bulky, and not flattering for the curvy girl. Opt for bottoms that are sleek and clean for an OOTD that's flattering, and can lengthen your legs, too! #DoubleYay!

Do! Wear crop tops. Whoever said that a curvy girl cannot rock a trendy crop top is wrong because guess what? You totally can! Tops that hit just above your hips are fashionable, and emphasizes your killer curves, too.

Don't! Sport baggy bottoms. If you're not a hundred percent confident with your curves yet, don't make the huge mistake of hiding behind a pair of baggy bottoms. This will only give you an unnecessarily bulkier appearance, and one hundred percent not flattering either.

Do! Own a pair of skinnies, or make that two pairs. Skinny jeans may not be the first type of jeans that pops into a curvy girl's mind when she's jeans shopping, but bottoms that hugs the hips well will emphasize the curves perfectly. Plus, a pair of skinnies is versatile, and always fashionable.

Do! Pack on the confidence. At the end of the day, it's important to always remember that you should be able to wear whatever you want, Candy Girls. And when you do, confidence is way more important than any styling tips and tricks you know. So pack on the confidence, and paint the town red with your OOTD!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
