The best thing about the clothing is that it has the ability to make you look better than you feel about yourself. You don’t need to be a fashion expert to make your wardrobe work for you. By keeping few simple tips in your mind you can put your best look forward irrespective of what you are feeling.
These are few styling tips that will boost your body image, give you bit more confidence to walk out of your door feeling at your best.
# OPT FOR NUDE HIGH HEEL SHOE
There is no doubt that heels give you added height, but if you want to double down on their elongating properties, try a sandal or pump that matches your skin tone.When you wear a skirt or a dress, color continuity from your legs to your feet helps draw the eye down, and gives the illusion of even longer limbs. (If you don’t wear heels often, strappy flats or sandals that show a bit more skin can have the same effect.)
# USE LINES TO YOUR ADVANTAGE IN PRINTS AND SILHOUETTE
This one is just a bit of simple science.The eye naturally follows lines, so avoid horizontal stripes and wide belts. A cardigan, coat or blazer worn open will naturally draw the eye up and down as well. A shirt that hits below the widest part of your hips will also keep focus away from that area, look for knee-length and pencil skirt styles. Long necklaces, v-neck tops, loose scarves and maxi dresses that go all the way to the floor can also make you look a bit taller.
# TRY OUT FLARED PANTS OR BELLBOTTOMS
Flared pants or denims are often cut extra-long because they are meant to be worn with a heel. When the bell shape covers your shoe or only reveals the toe, the pants create one long line from your waist to the floor, which goes back to the vertical line tip above. (Dark washes work best, as well.) With the added bonus of a heel underneath, you’ll feel your longest and leanest.
# PLAY WITH YOUR BODY PROPORTIONS
It is the first rule in fashion that to flatter your figure, you shouldn’t pair loose with loose, boxy with boxy or even tight with tight. To look slimmer, try different combinations of fit to see what flatters your best assets. Try to draw attention towards the narrowest part of your body.
# GO MONOCHROMATIC
Wear all black or a monochromatic look! The head-to-toe black look is by far the easiest and most tried & tested way to give you the added confidence of feeling slimmer and taller any day of the week. You can try the same with lots of dark & bright colors, including navy, burgundy, charcoal grey, wine and blood red. To add interest, mix up your textures. Leather, denim, faux fur, silk—the combinations are endless, and endlessly flattering.
The most important thing to keep in mind when you want to look your best in the clothes you wear is the cut/silhouette of the garment, and of course how it fits you. The better your clothing fits, the better you will look always.
