There are many fashion outfits available in the market. But before you make a purchase, it is important that you know how to dress according to your body type. Make the most out of your strengths – and be able to conceal your flaws – with these styling tips, straight from the world’s best fashion editors.
Problem: Big Arms
Do you have big or flabby arms that you are too shy to expose? You don’t have to look dowdy, as long as you know how to dress according to your body type. According to ShopBazaar’s Joy Ann King, the key to concealing arms effectively is to wear tops with ‘sneaky sleeve coverage.’ A good example is the off shoulder top below, as it effectively conveys sexiness without exposing your arms.
Problem: Big Tummy
A big tummy is one of the most prevalent problems a lot of women have to face. But even if you have a big tummy, you can look sexier with Julie Kosin’s tips on how to dress according to your body type. The associate digital editor manages to conceal her midsection simply by wearing voluminous tops and dresses.
Problem: Big Hips and Thighs
Pear-shaped women are gifted with ‘childbearing hips’ and big thighs. If these are your concerns, all you just need to do is know how to dress according to your body type. Digital Beauty Editor Alexandra Tunnell has this to say: stay away from body-con dresses or curve hugging outfits! Instead, invest in A-line dresses and skirt for a flattering look.
Problem: Petite Frame
If you are petite just like News/Features Editor Christine Whitney, then you should know how to dress according to your body type. If not, you will end up looking stumpy. According to the Bazaar Editor, the key to looking taller is to wear either mini or short skirts. Avoid midi skirts – although they are all the rage – as they can make you look stubbier.
Problem: Boyish Frame
Some women are thin alright, but they can be so thin that they are devoid of natural curves. If your boyish frame makes you look like a straight ruler, then follow Kelly Pieri’s tips on how to dress according to your body type. According to the Digital Fashion/Features editor, wear outfits that hit your natural curve, such as high-waisted skirts or pants. With these bottoms, you can create the illusion of a sexy waist.
