Thérèse Henkin highlights labels to feel great in and fashion advisor Ljubenka addresses a question of balance.
COLOUR TREND: Burgundy
If bold and bright isn’t your thing, try opting for burgundy as a way to incorporate colour into your wardrobe. It’s versatile and easy to wear for most skin tones.
I am bottom heavy! I’m small around the waist and bust, but thick around the hips and legs. And I am very self-conscious about my chubby ankles. What can I wear to look more balanced?
I recommend that you embrace dark colours on the bottom half, such as dark trousers and stockings, as these have a slimming effect. Wear clothes that fit well, but aren’t tight fitting (there is a difference). Generally, opt for a fit-andflare silhouette. You want to emphasise the top half of your body and draw the eye upwards. Be bold and daring with colour, print, graphics and texture on the top. Tall ankle boots are great for winter footwear as they detract from larger ankles.
