Nancy Baum, plus size model and founder of Cherished-Woman.com, adds her recommendation on how to look sexy and stylish this summer, all for under $300:

There is a figure-flattering design technique called ruching that every curvy girl should know about when shopping for her summer wardrobe. Ruching is a French term meaning to gather, ruffle, or pleat. This technique is very labor intensive and time consuming for the designer but the end result sculpts and shapes a curvy figure like no other fashion detail.

Ruching fools the eye by creating an illusion of a narrower silhouette. One designer that hits the mark with this curve-flattering technique is Vikki Vi. Her new contemporary and trendy line departs from the polyester “slinky” material that she is well known for into luxuriously soft modal fabric.Vikki’s modal is far superior to many of the other fashion labels that are on the market today.

If you are looking for a hot outfit that will keep you cool this summer check out her Modal Jersey Ruched Waist Top ($99.00) and Modal Jersey Draped Skirt ($115.00). They can take you from day to night simply by changing your shoes and accessories. The top is very chic and fashion forward. It features a face flattering V-neckline, ruching under the bust that gives the illusion of perkier breasts, and ruching across the midsection that hides tummy bulges while enhancing your shape. The skirt features an asymmetrical hemline that fools the eye by making you appear slimmer and taller. It also camouflages fuller thighs while showing off shapely calves.  Another slimming trick is to dress in all one color from head to toe. If you want to “kick it up a notch” mix and match the colors to create your own unique looks.

What’s great about these pieces is that they can also be worn separately. You will get a lot of mileage out of the top by wearing it with jeans, capri pants, gauchos, or long shorts that are also really hot right now. The skirt also looks great paired with a halter top and heels if you are going out at night or a tee shirt and flats for a more casual look. This sexy and flattering silhouette also comes in a dress for the ultimate in feminine dressing.

This is one outfit not to miss this summer that offers you a lot of versatility for the price and will no doubt become one of your favorite wardrobe staples! This outfit can be yours for a total of $214.00. Treat yourself to these expertly designed pieces that will keep you looking sizzling and feeling cool all summer long at Cherished-Woman.com.
