Slim all over with an asym­met­ri­cal blouse

First For Women - - Style -

The key to tack­ling more than one trou­ble spot while look­ing beau­ti­fully stylish: “Stick to a neu­tral color pal­ette and play around with pro­por­tions,” ad­vises celebrity stylist Ge­orge Bres­cia, who has worked with Mar­cia Gay Harden and count­less Broadway stars. “A blouse with a high­low hem (shorter in front and longer in back) hits right at the waist, pulling the eye in to the mid­dle to carve out curves.

And the train-like style in back draws the eye ver­ti­cally, vis­ually stretch­ing the body for a longer and leaner look from head to toe.

The fig­ure-flat­ter­ing fin­ish­ing touch?

Cre­at­ing a slight con­trast with straight-leg black trousers, says Bres­cia. “The dark lin­ear line be­neath the flowy top helps the lower half ap­pear slim and trim.”
