Play Up Your Best Features
Everyone has something that love and hate about their bodies. It’s all about finding your best assets and showcasing them. By focusing on the features you love, you will feel more confident.
If you love your legs, show them off by wearing a skirt. If you are on the petite side, wearing minimalist fabric will elongate your figure. Hourglass shapes should try and accentuate their small waists. Whatever it is, work with what you’ve got and show it off.
Don’t Be Afraid To Experiment
It’s all about getting to know the skin you’re in. experiment with different fabrics and cuts to get an idea of what works for your shape.
Don’t get stuck in a style rut, have an open mind and try new things. You might surprise yourself.
You Don’t Have To Follow Trends
Not every trend will work with everybody shape. Just because something is ‘in fashion’ doesn’t mean you have to wear it. Choose trends that will highlight your best features. Some silhouettes will flatter, some cuts will camouflage, and some fabrics will highlight your best areas.
Always dress for fit over fashion and remember some trends won’t suit everyone.
Choose The Right Fabric
Fabrics will not look the same on everyone and there are some that might not work for you. Avoid high sheen areas which can draw attention to areas you don’t like and make you appear bigger. Go for matte fabrics to play down these areas. Reserve high-shine fabrics for areas you want to accentuate.
The right fabric and the right colour can make you look taller and slimmer.
Don’t be afraid to wear colour. When you wear one you like, it can make you feel good and give you a confidence boost. Get to know which colours suit you and how to use them to your advantage.
If you don’t feel like wearing a bright colour, you can keep things simple and just wear some bright lipstick to change up your entire outfit.
If All Else Fails, Go With Black
Black is a colour that looks flattering on everyone and is guaranteed to boost your confidence. If you’re in a style rut and not sure what to wear, put black and black together for a stylish outfit.
Mix different fabrics and textures to all black outfits to add some depth. You can freshen up your all black look by wearing a white pump or nude heel.
