BN Style Your Curves: Kristen of ‘Trendy Curvy’



Hey, curvy girls, this one’s just for you! BellaNaija Style presents BN Style Your Curves. A series for the stylish curvy girl, stylists looking to be inspired or any girl with curves that’s looking for style tips.

Los Angeles based style blogger Kristen of Trendy Curvy is our style spotlight for today’s BN Style Your Curves. Just like her name suggests, Kristen is trendy, chic and simple. She knows what suits her body type and how to style it appropriately to accentuate her curves.

According to her Instagram dairy, Kristen loves her jeans, a-line skirts, knee length pencil skirts and body-con dresses.

When it comes to accessorising her nicely picked outfits, Kristen keeps it elegant and she doesn’t over accessorise. She maintains a neutral colour for her shoes (black, nude or brown) but sometimes, she plays with colours and for her bags/clutches, she keeps it simple, vintage and chic.


Stylish and relatable, Kristen formula for dresses is simple. A simple, fitted, v-neck, wrap dress is all she needs. She loves her décolletage revealing dresses which add that extra sexy element to her look and keep her from looking big/bulky. With all those killer curves, why would you want to hide them anyway? Also, look out for high waist cuts on dresses or jeans, for that hourglass silhouette.


Curvy Kristen pairs her skirts with mostly off-shoulder tops and matching shoes to add sophistication to her look. Florals, patterns, pleats or monochrome, Kristen is an all rounder with her skirt selections and she has great taste too.


Kristen was one of our picks a few months ago when we featured curvy fashionistas in their perfect fitting jeans. The fashionista is on top of her game when it comes to her denim choices and styling them. She occasionally styles her jeans with a blazer which is perfect for work, date night or even girls night. It’s a classic!


Sandals, pumps and lace-up shoes are Kristen’s favourites. She accessorises her outfits with the perfect jewellery, shoes and bags, giving it that extra boost of style.

    Hello BN family,
    I have an issue that’s being bothering me for years and it disturbs my self confidence atimes.. The issue is that my calf is quite big for my body, i’m a size 8 but my calf downwards should be like a size 12. its so bad that i cant wear short skirt and i have to buy 1 or 2 sizes up when i buy trouser and then trim the waist and hip area. i’m tired of not being able to wear skirt and dresses. Kindly advise on exercises or drugs that i can do to reduce that area, I’m tired of people staring at me on the few occasions i manage to wear shorts around home. For God’s sake my legs are bigger than this lady’s (Kristen Curvy) own
    Please its ok if this is posted on Aunty Bella.

      Hi dear
      I know it’s easy for me to say (sorry in advance if this isn’t helpful:( ), but please don’t resort to surgery or medication to change your body. I understand it’s frustrating and inconvenient (I am bigger than the lady above, have a big midsection and rock a flat behind so trust me I’d kill for a smaller waist!) but people’s stares are not worth your health/life.

      Our bodies are all different and so is our fat distribution so I personally would say don’t change a thing! If you were morbidly obese then that would be different and more related to health than appearance really.

      Rock your clothes and ignore them! (I wear bodycon skirts like no one’s business lol they should come and beat me!). Stay positive dear!

      I don’t think there are drugs o… (even if there were I won’t recommend).
      I think exercise is good, it’ll give your calves more definition like Serena Williams’.

      Don’t let stuff like that bother you too much. You are beautiful sister.

      Me I am slim but I have big cheeks and a double chin, I have learnt to live with it jarey.

      My younger sister has big calves too, and I admire them to the extent that I wish they were mine. I love the way they shake with each step.
      Babe, rock your legs well….wear your skirts and shorts wella!.

      Don’t have the luxury of time to arrange my thoughts so I’m just gonna shoot. I totally understand what it means to deeply desire to alter a part of your body so bad, but I want you to know that self-love, acceptance and confidence is where all of that comes to non-existence (I know it sounds cliché but it’s THE truth). Take a look at the lady this post is about, by some people’s books and opinions, she should be rotting away somewhere dying in shame and self-hate for being this big. But what’s she done?? She’s turned the whole thing around, rocking her seeming “flaw” fabulously and elegantly, inspiring women of ALL sizes in the process!! So know that no one is perfect, and you my dear could be the one to inspire some other lady with a physique like yours when she sees you rocking your bod with all the confidence in the world, the best way you can. I truly hope you get my point. Cheers!

    These pictures made me smile…. I will print everyone of it and use for my personal look book. Confidence is attractive and it has nothing to do with size. I’m a size 12 going on 10 and I’m in love with this beautiful woman. She oozes style, confidence and poise.
