Trainor: Black is empowering

Meghan Trainor has shared what outfits make her feel most confident.

The 21-year-old singer quickly became a style icon after releasing her debut track All About That Bass last year thanks to her retro aesthetic and enviable curves.

Her looks are admired so much that Meghan has teamed up with FullBeauty Brands, a website which boasts a range of labels featuring plus-size to encourage women to feel confident in their own skin.

She's already confirmed a swimwear line and is currently in the final stages of planning the partnership, but was happy to share some style secrets in the meantime.

"They reached out to me because they loved the message I want to achieve with my music - promoting, inspiring, and empowering all women," she told

"When I want to feel my best, I put on a pair of heels and a comfortable, cute outfit. Wearing black is always the best colour for making me feel empowered. Putting on an all-black outfit with a bold coloured lip instantly makes me feel both confident and powerful."

While she may appear to have her wardrobe spot on, it wasn't always that way for Meghan. Having been raised alongside brothers means the blonde star is still getting used to her girly clothing gaining attention.

"I was never into fashion while growing up, but I've learned so much about it. I love it so much and am having fun with fashion and experimenting," she added. "I just started wearing lots of pencil skirts, especially with [the video for] Dear Future Husband. Just like dresses, they're comfortable and hug the body in the most flattering way. I've found that circle skirts are also favourable to all body types."
