Accent Your Body Assets!

Accent Your Body Assets

Figure-flattering choices are based on the right assumptions regarding your body image. Be realistic about your flaws and appreciative of your assets. A curvy body calls for bodycon silhouettes while a slim silhouette for a relaxed fit or interplay of volumes. Body height is also a parameter to consider, keeping the most crowded looks to the longest figures. Bold colors and large motifs volumize certain body parts while subtle hues and petit patterns minimize them. There are basic rules, yet also ways to play around them.

Accent your Waist

The fit & flare style is one way to put an emphasis to the waistline. The Maje Rimana Spaghetti Strap Cotton Dress is a very feminine look for both slim and voluptuous bodies. Another way is through the slim belt on a sheath style such as the Ted Baker Macal Patchwork Wrap Dress . Finally, let’s resort to a wardrobe hero – the peplum top – which gives a sexy sharp spin to any look. Check how flirty the Rebecca Taylor Meadow Floral V-Neck Peplum Top is!

Boost your Bust

You don’t need push-up bras, just strategically designed clothes. Diagonal lines and elements of the wrap surplice front can be flirty and chic. Knits such as the Sandro Ophelia Crisscross-Band Eyelet Top & Enor Skater Skirt have that magical effect. V-necks belong to this group. In the case of the Sandro Nao Inlaid Flowers Cardigan the V-neck blends with the sweetheart neckline. In the summer, stress that area through a combination of a V-neck with spaghetti straps. The frilled trim in the Rebecca Taylor Cherry Blossom Print Silk Romper is another volumizer!

Let it Flow

On vacation, enjoy the comfort of a relaxed-fit garment. Abundant food and sunshine will make you slip into the Rebecca Taylor Moonlight Garden Sleeveless Maxi Dress  during island vacations. The lightweight fabric of the Maje Lubin Shirt Collar Blouse has an elegant aspect to it. In the workspace, a boxy blazer such as the Maje Valila Shoulder Pad Plaid Jacket – with minor darting – is also perfect.  

The Right Proportions

As a rule of thumb, bring balance with a garment silhouette that is contrasting your body type. If you are slim and tall, you can wear more square and voluminous silhouettes. The Sandro Matia S84 Oversized Varsity Cardigan is surely designed for you. If curvier, accent these ‘babes’ with the Alice + Olivia Margy Guipure Lace Fitted Dress at knee length. If medium-height, elongated your silhouette with the Diane von Furstenberg Penelope Long-Sleeve Wrap Dress at maxi length.   

Contrasting Separates

They can bring a totally different effect to different zones of your body. They divide it into upper and lower part. Put the bold color in the part you want to maximize. Rock the Alice + Olivia Olsen Floral Guipure Lace Culottes with a black top. Mix the Maje Joro Pleated Stripe Skirt with a darker jacket. Make every neutral bottom look sharper with the Sandro Nolwene Eyelet-Detail Cutout Sweater.
