You are a gorgeous Woman. You have curves which can mesmerise men as you walk. Having said that, you may not want the attention, so by following these simple steps in this section, your figure will be more balanced. The focus will be away from your derriere and up where it should be. At your face.
Generally speaking, as you gain weight, it will stay around your lower half of your body, so you will find external columns of colour to be your friend. You will find examples of these at the back of this book.
- Keep colour and interest high on your body
- Wear light and bright tops with plainer bottoms
- Avoid horizontal stripes below your waist
- Avoid shiny fabrics over your hips
- Boat necks and wide collars look great
- Buy skirts and trousers which fit the widest part of your body and have your waist taken in
- Fifties dresses are made for you
Fuller skirts with exposed shoulders and v-necks will look great on you. Look for skirts and pants which fall from the hips, rather than hug the hips if you are feeling self-conscious. Keep your patterns and your prints up high.
Generally speaking, you want your colours and prints up high with everything plain below the waist. So I can hear you ask, why the jeans with stars. Every now and then you will want to break the rules so to do that look for patterns that are non-repeating, or in other words, patterns where you can’t tell where it starts and finishes.
Generally match your shoes to your outfit to keep the focus up high.
