Fashion Blunder to Wonder!

Have you left the house thinking your outfit was perfectly planned and then you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror or a reflection in a window and you think, “What was I thinking?!”

We’ve all made the occasional fashion blunder and we’re here to give you a few tips on how to turn those blunders into wonders that make your wardrobe work on every level.


Bad Fit

Bottom line: If you don’t have fit, you don’t have style. Don’t worry about the size on the tag. If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t look good.

At Lane Bryant, we pay close attention to fit, fabric and price. It’s never a bargain if it doesn’t fit right.

To get the best fit, buy pieces that fit the largest part of your body and have them tailored. It may cost a little more, but if they fit your body correctly, you’ll feel better, look better and get more use out of them, making it worth the extra cost.


Don’t Let Your “Flaws” Rule Your Fashion

The next time you find yourself saying “I could never wear that because my <insert your least favorite body part>  doesn’t look good in that style”,  STOP.

You can wear whatever you want – you just need to be creative and find a way to interpret that look so it’ll work for you.

Don’t dismiss a style without giving it a try. Not all styles work on every body, but there are few looks that can’t be achieved with a little extra effort, patience and willingness to step outside of your comfort zone.

Give it a go – you may be surprised at just how fabulous you’ll look and how versatile your wardrobe will become.


All Solids All The Time

I’m  guilty of this one!

Wearing solids all the time is a safe choice and it’s boring. Patterns and print spice up your style and extend your wardrobe choices. Smaller prints tend to work best for us curvy girls, but don’t be afraid to go bold. You can always pair with a solid blazer or sweater to soften the look while still being vibrant.


Visible Panty Lines

Visible panty lines are hard to ignore and instantly ruin a great look.

With so many seamless and invisible edge panty options available, this blunder is an easy fix. If you’re looking for an ultra-smooth silhouette, try a pair of Spanx®.

You’re worth the investment of good undergarments!


Some Statements Aren’t Worth Making

Who doesn’t want to show off their individuality with a “statement-making” accessory?

Fashion is about making a statement, but to make sure your accessories are sending the right message, think “less is more”.

Over-accessorized looks (matchy-match earrings, necklace, bracelet and rings) detract from your look.

Enhance your outfit with accessories by using one piece as a standout piece and the rest as complements instead of competition.
