Before I start off, I’d like to let you know that this post contains more than the average number of pictures that I usually post on my previous blogposts because I just could not make up my mind and pick only few.(pardon my greediness here..hehe)
Moving on to my post, I think this will be by far one of the most helpful one for you all. I’ve come across many people dress and end up looking as shabby as they can be, only because they are not aware of their body type and dress up accordingly. Talking about the same, it’s not only because of the love of fashion but also in general that one needs to be drawn towards the importance of knowing one’s body type/shape and dress up keeping the same in mind. You can look equally good in a pair of jeans and a simple tee if you have an idea of the right fit of the jeans you are wearing. Following trends blindly without knowing your body shape is not always a good idea. As Coco Chanel quotes,” Fashion is architecture. It is a matter of proportions”. It truly is.
And I also want you to know that having a supermodel body is not only the ‘ideal’ one. Every single person is blessed with different body structure be it a pear shape, and apple shape or an hourglass figure and so on. It is very important to first and foremost love your body irrespective of whichever structure it is. Remember that there are always positives to your shapes as well and these are the body traits that you have to work on and accentuate.
Because my post will be way too long if I go on about the tips and tricks to dressing up according to your shape, here’s a link that will make yours and my work easier. This article will guide you in every possible way.
Also, this outfit of mine is an example. This long dress/shrug is a ‘one of a kind’ piece and my favorite too. It accentuates my height and makes me look taller (minus the heels) and slimmer. I’ve paired it with a simple LBD (Little black dress) and accessorized it with just a pair of spiked earrings, keeping it simple and keeping the beauty of the dress in limelight.
So, you see how a simple tip in mind can help you put your best foot forward without making you have a wardrobe malfunction or look shabby. 🙂
Hope this post helped you at least in some way or the other. I’d love to hear from you and I’ll be glad to answer your queries, if any. 🙂
