These are my favorite tips to flatter every figure, no matter what season of life or time of month it is!
I’ve been short on words this week because I finally checked out Polyvore. This is my new favorite place to spend my writing time. Ahem. Look at this graphic I made for you!
It doesn’t matter where you’re shopping or how small your budget, there are principles of line and drape that can be applied to your choices that will aid in flattering every figure.
Tips to Flatter Every Figure:
- What for longer skirts, shirts, cardis, and vest-style pieces that go past your waist.
- Choose fabrics that drape and flow (not bunch or strain to cover you!)
- Know what colors and textures YOU love (not just what’s on trend) and accessorize with your favorites to give every look confident style
Most of my wardrobe consists of the above style of items–longer skirts, drapey tops, and color and textures that can make me smile. You can tell from the graphic that I love black, grey, and navy, with a pop of pink or purple, and just a bit of glitz to help my foundational pieces work for special occasions, too.
The best part about these pieces is that they hang with me through thick and thin…I’ve got a maxi skirt like the one in the graphic and I’ve worn it all the way through a pregnancy and down to my normal waist size again. It’s a total workhorse in my wardrobe. The drapey, metalic blouse has similar super powers: it accents the assets while and skiming down past whatever wait gain or bloating may be going on around my middle that week. Its flowy style is also great for when I’m nursing.
It’s important to know what you love and what works for you in the season of style you’re in. For more help with finding and rocking your style (especially in the challenging season of motherhood) check out my book, Embracing Beauty!
Watch for more great style-guiding graphics as I play with this new toy, and don’t miss all the fun inspiration I’ve been pinning to pinterest lately…
Have a great weekend! I love your style!!!
