1. Accentuate your assets by showing off your best features, whether it's your lean legs, sculpted arms or sexy décolletage. Being curvy does not mean you have to cover up from head to toe.

2. Steer clear of cheap fabrics that cling in all the wrong places. High quality materials, such as cotton and silk, are natural fi bres that fall just right on the body, making for a streamlined silhouette. A small percentage of Lycra also helps hold and lift to firm up the look of a fuller figure.

3. Add knockout accessories to help you achieve the look you desire. A shrug, shawl or capelet is a fashionable way to cover your arms, while high heels can make legs look longer and slimmer.
