I couldn’t be more proud…one of my favorite curvacious actresses, none other than America-the-Beautiful, has been making some serious strides in the fashion world. Miss. Ferrera has been popping up on more and more “best dressed” lists recently, and it’s no surprise. Her style is the perfect blend of youthful elegance and class that you hardly see anymore.
Ok, so her look is neither groundbreaking nor is it avant-garde, but I love it just the same. America looks glossy, but not overprocessed and like the girl next door that you really want to go shopping with. The girl knows how to dress her shape without looking dowdy or obscene, and in a world of uber-thin actresses, it’s nice to see someone that looks like me out there working it.
Love what you see to? Duplicating this look is easy, so here are some simple steps on how to dress like America Ferrera:
1) Waist not, want not:
Show off an hourglass figure like America’s with a cinched in waist. This look is easy to achieve with a billowy top, skinny jeans and a skinny belt. Paired with an oversized bag and killer heels, you can easily create a look that is very now.
2) It’s a wrap:
Wrap dresses and tops are ideal for almost any body type, and look especially flattering if you are top or bottom heavy. Solid colored wrap dresses are your best bet to create a slimming effect.
3) No accessories please:
When you are as naturally beautiful as America, you don’t need a whole lot of bling to take away the attention from your glossy hair and great hieels. Go for minimal jewelry and streamlined belts, bags and shoes to create a timeless and ladylike look.
