Don’t be afraid of colour, especially on the top half of your body to highlight your hair colour or eyes. Put away the khakis if you’re trying to disguise wide hips. Darker colours are generally more slimming on the bottom half.
If you wear a shorter jacket, layer a longer top underneath to give the illusion of length and height. Combining plain and prints breaks up and reshapes your silhouette, disguising figure flaws.
Avoid wearing boxyshaped tops with no structure. Instead, use a belt to create a waist, add a tailored jacket for definition and remember to roll up the sleeves to show off wrists.
