When you look at magazine covers or advertisements, you see similar looking women. All the models and actresses are the same size, the same shape, and you sometimes wonder how they are supposed to reflect the average woman.
The average woman has different shapes and sizes ranging from women who have curves, to those who are skinny. Women range in height, and not all of them are super tall like all the models. While it is obvious that the fashion industry opts to select the women that they feel reflect a shape women should be like, they do not understand that viewing the latest fashions on these bodies does not in any way help us understand how it would look like on us.
Here are some ideas that can help you comply with the today trends in your dress.
High heels are back in fashion. The fashion shows for the spring lines were filled up with ridiculously high heels that actually had models falling all over the place. While no one is suggesting you get an eight-inch heel, it is however, recommended that you get one excellent black and one excellent nude heel that fits you well and looks great on you. If you are tall, you can opt for something in the three or four inch range, and if you are short, you can go as high as you are comfortable with. If you are wearing a skirt, wearing a nude heel will instantly give your legs a slimmer look.
2. Skinny Jeans:
Everyone is talking about them; and wants to be the one to try them on first. There is a simple rule for these, if you have the right legs, flaunt them. Women who have toned legs should feel no fear in trying on a pair, also, women who have skinny but athletic legs should be comfortable with these. The only reason you should not wear these is if you have excess fat on your legs which are likely to jiggle as you walk.
Appropriate accessories can be used to highlight your best features, and take attention off the ones that are not so great. If you have a tiny waist, use a belt to highlight this. If you have a long neck, you can use necklaces to show off your neckline.
Jackets can be very useful in hiding bulgy parts of your body and bringing a whole outfit together. If you want a really small waist, you should get a jacket that will make your shoulders look wider, and in contrast your waist will look even tinier in comparison.
If you have great cleavage, use a deep V neck or a halter top to show this off. You can also try the various kinds of necklines that are on the spring lines and see which ones complement your features the best.
If you have a full figure, opt for dresses that don’t make you look even bigger by being very airy. Instead, go for ones that really cling to your body in the right places (like your bust line), and then flare out to give the illusion of a smaller waist. If you are tiny, try to add bulk to your body by wearing loose clothes.
