Pump Up The Volume

I’m not talking about an 80s bouffant hair do here, but your clothing. If you’re tired of fabrics falling flat, get some lift into your pieces and pump up the volume. Try a skirt with a bubble effect, or pieces with fabric that folds and hangs creatively!

There are many different ways to try and add volume to your look, and they all don’t have to include an A-line skirt or dress.  If you try an oversized t-shirt dress or a top with creatively draping sleeves, you’re also getting your volume fix in.  The key is to get creative and layer, but try to keep one pronounced voluminous piece only; you don’t want to look as if you’re walking in swaths of fabric.
