IF you’ve ever walked through a boutique and thought, “That looks like something So-and-so would wear,” then it’s likely your friend So-and-so has established a unique style for herself. Perhaps she did it by embracing a certain signature piece that looks great on her no matter what else she’s wearing (e.g. she always wears a wide belt to accentuate her tiny waistline). Or perhaps she’s created her own style by purchasing all her clothing at some out-of-the-way vintage shop nobody else has discovered yet.
There are many ways to build a wardrobe that’ll make your style unique. This month, we are gonna show you 5 magical ways how-to:
The absolute easiest way to look your best is to dress to flatter your particular body type and wear that style of clothing exclusively. It doesn’t matter what size you are — it’s all about dressing to compliment your shape. And we have share in our previous blogs how to take note of your shape.
If you’re shaped like an hourglass, wear clothes that hug your curves. Avoid loose blouses and dresses; they’ll make you look bigger than you are. Think belts that cinch your waist and tailored blouses. If you’re shaped like a triangle (smaller on top, bigger on the bottom), wear clothes that pull the eye up to the most slender part of your body. Think bold tops and statement necklaces, with dark, sleek pants. If you’re shaped like an inverted triangle, you want to elongate the torso by wearing drop-waist dresses, skinny jeans, untied scarves and long necklaces. If you’re shaped more like a rectangle, you want to create curves. Wrap tops, draping, and bias cuts help create the illusion of bust and hips.
Stay tuned to our next Mon’s 2nd tip on how-to style blog — it’s good to digest slowly rather than us downloading all the info.
