Stylist has hot tip

The Sun (Malaysia) - - STYLE -

WOMEN with big­ger calves can con­ceal them with straight-leg trousers. A loose cut be­low the widest sec­tion of the shin is im­por­tant, as style con­sul­tant Sylvia Eb­ner ex­plains.

This makes the calves look vis­ually less plump.

If you in­sist on wear­ing seven-eighth­slength pants, the hem of the trouser leg should end at least be­low the widest point where the legs be­gin ta­per­ing to­wards the an­kles.

The shape of the up­per body also plays a role in what trousers you should wear.

Boyfriend jeans are great if you have nar­row hips and big­ger calves, says Eb­ner. Those with a wide waist should go for a straight leg and loose, flow­ing ma­te­rial.

How­ever if a women’s suit is re­quired, Eb­ner says a knee-length skirt is usu­ally the more pru­dent op­tion to dis­tract from chunky calves. – dpa

Straight-cut pants like this dis­tract from thicker calves.
