I have re­ally big, wide hips and much smaller ev­ery­thing else. What are some out­fits I can wear that bal­ance out my pro­por­tions? Choose tops and jack­ets that have de­tail, an em­bel­lish­ment or bold pat­tern on them, as they draw the eye up­wards. By wear­ing darker colours on your lower body, the eye will al­ways pan up to where the ex­cite­ment is. I love to wear hal­ter or strap­less tops/ dresses as they bal­ance out my wider hips. En­sure jack­ets fall just be­low the hip line. If wear­ing a longer jacket, make sure it isn’t too tight. A-line dresses/skirts will be your best friend. A slightly plung­ing or V-neck­line will also draw the at­ten­tion up­wards. An em­pire waist or wrap­around dress is also flat­ter­ing. Make sure the bot­tom half has some vol­ume but isn’t so full that it makes you ap­pear big­ger than you are. Lastly, pay at­ten­tion to how you look and feel in an out­fit or par­tic­u­lar sil­hou­ette. Re­mem­ber it and start play­ing around with colours, pat­terns and fab­rics. Be ad­ven­tur­ous!
