Have fun with this season’s punchy pinks and corals. And venture from a knee-length hem to a three-quarter or blazer-length style. That way, you’ll flatter rather than overwhelm your figure. Adding bold colour is easy with accessories. Have fun with coral espadrilles or a neon clutch.

Look for an A-line trench that’s cut to accommodate your curves. Remember to choose a coat with flat or invisible side pockets to avoid putting extra emphasis or fabric on the hips and thighs. High heels create the illusion of longer legs, as do same-coloured tights. You’ll look inches taller.
Tristan cotton-nylon trench, $225, sizes XS–XL.
Part Two dress, $169, sizes 32– 46.
A no-frills trench is universally flattering – aim for a V-neck style that suits a bigger bust. Don’t cinch your belt too snugly; the smaller your waist looks, the fuller your bosom will appear. Chunky, stacked or wedge heels help make you look taller and slimmer.
Reitmans cotton trench, $80, sizes 5–15.
Style & Co. Women shirt, at the Bay, $52, sizes 14W–22W.
This coatâs open neckline and lapels help create the illusion of an hourglass figure. Belting the trench also suggests a defined waist. And note: Black and white layer well with any hue. Flatter your complexion and your outfit with a pretty scarf.
Black Bedo polyester trench, $169, sizes XS–XL.
Mac & jac shirt, $69, sizes XS- XL.
Try bright colours instead of predictable beige, but avoid oversized prints and too much volume in the body. Pair with dark bottoms to create a balanced look. Don’t super-size your satchel. It adds bulk to your figure.
