The body-con, or “body-conscious,” look has been everywhere lately – we’ve spotted figure hugging styles on the runway and in the office, on the red carpet and on some of our most stylish friends.
Some believe that great style is defined by a particular set of rules. We’re all familiar with them – they’ve been around for as long as any of us can remember. For the most part, these rules have passed as law, but a few brave women among us have begun to question them. As it turns out, under even the slightest interrogation these so-called pillars of fashion crack and crumble and are exposed for what they really are: basically bogus, absolutely arbitrary, sartorial silliness.
When it comes to pin-up style Gwynnie Bee member Amber McCulloch is best in show. The look that’s become synonymous with curvy confidence is one of her go-to’s; she regularly features pin-up looks on her site Style Plus Curves. We were thrilled when she agreed to put her signature vintage spin on some of our favorite Gwynnie Bee pieces. Read some of her tips below, then check out her blog to see them all.
We can’t get enough of Chastity Garner, the top blogger behind GarnerStyle and author of The Curvy Girl’s Guide to Style. Fearless in the face of a fashion challenge be it crop tops or summer leather, jumpsuits or horizontal stripes, Chastity doesn’t hesitate to take risks. She’s also a pro when it comes to achieving classic style, making her an admirably versatile dresser. Check out some of our favorite GarnerStyles and learn how to get the look with Gwynnie Bee.
You know how there’s those people who always look inherently cool no matter what they’re wearing? Blogger Kirstin Marie is one of those people. She pairs on-trend apparel with vintage-inspired and sometimes quirky pieces that creates a distinctive style. Kirstin had a couple of photos recently that we loved, so we asked her to let us know what she likes about these Gwynnie Bee items.
