Picking up tops

  1. Don’t hide or try to cover those beautiful curves in clothes that are loose-fitting. When you have curves, you have got to flaunt them and make others jealous.
  2.  Trendy accessories with classy cuts would be nice
  3.  Stay away from too many bows and ruffles, frills etc, they do not bring justice to the perfect curves on you.

  5.  Tops with belts
  6.  Wrap tops
