After a 2 month hiatus I’m finally back to blogging! Between the holidays & getting comfortable with working part time, I just didn’t have the time nor the energy to write. But, I’m back & it feels wonderful!
It’s that time of year again…people are making resolutions, the gym is over-crowded & at home yoga videos are flying off the shelves. I enjoy a good workout as much as the next person, but looking good & feeling good doesn’t always have to involve sweating your face off. In honor of the New Year & trying to look our best I wanted to share some styling practices I use while styling myself & clients.
Highlight & emphasize your best features. Whether it’s your bust, waist or legs, figure out what you love most about your body & flaunt it!
Style Suggestions Bust: V-neck blouses & dresses with a plunging neckline or scoop neck are the perfect way to emphasize your bust. Waist: Tops with shape or cinching as well as belted high-waist pants will highlight your waist & show off your silhouette. Legs: Boot cut jeans with a small flare will balance the curve of your hip which in turn elongates the leg & creates a slimming effect. Shorter dresses and skirts are always a go-to when showing off your legs as well.
Avoid baggy clothing. I know this can be hard. Hell, most days you’ll find me in a comfy oversized tee, but wearing loose fitting clothing tends to have an adverse effect & actually makes you look bigger than you are.
Style Suggestions Peplum blouses, straight-fit tops, fitted blazers, belted dresses. When in doubt, wear shapewear!
Don’t be afraid of skinny jeans. Contrary to what many woman believe, anyone can rock a pair of skinnys! The trick is to finding a brand that perfectly fits your shape.
Style Suggestions If you’re new to skinny jeans, start with a dark wash navy. Treat the denim as leggings & tuck them into tall boots, or cuff them at the hem & wear with ankle booties, they’re also great to wear with high heels or even pointed toe flats
