One of the great things about Fall fashion is prints. One of my favorite prints is the geometric print. It truly hides a multitude of sins (In the words of Wendy Williams). Large geometric shapes flatter larger curves and small geometric shapes flatter smaller curves. However, that is not to say that if you have larger curves you can’t wear smaller prints. The secret of flattering prints lies in the print design, fabric, and color. Sometimes if you have larger curves and you get a large print in a chiffon style fabric it can actually make you look bigger. Most clothes that are made out of chiffon have an airy loose look, which can make someone with large curves look sloppy. Smaller prints do not always look good on small frames. Too small prints that look busy can make a small curvy frame look shapeless or it can magnify curves.
Celebs like Keri Hilson are rocking geometric prints in a sexy way. The medium size print is highlighting Keri’s small curves, while the plunging neck line draws the eye up and takes away from the busy print. You can always alter a busy print buy wearing a blazer over it.
