Details in which we had not fallen and that work.
It is time to get rid of the idea that clothes suit one type of body better than another, or the overrated idea that there are exclusive garments for very thin women. And it is that in reality the key does not lie in weight or size but in proportion. That is why when choosing the look it is so important to keep certain rules that maintain it, something not very easy if you do not know certain things. We give you 15 keys so that you can see it as clearly as we do.
1.- Invest in lingerie
Let’s start from the inside out, because it doesn’t matter how beautiful the clothes you wear are if the bra doesn’t do you the desired effect. To do this, invest time and money in looking for a model that meets the requirements that your chest needs. A subtle change but one that will radically change the way you see yourself dressed. 2.- Respect the proportions
Very few are the chosen ones who have a perfectly harmonious silhouette between the upper and lower part of the body, in general the bodies are very different from each other, some wider at the top, others with a little marked waist, others with more voluminous hips. Others are very thin, tall, short… Hence the importance of dressing respecting proportion.
If you go tight at the bottom, tend to go looser at the top:
And vice versa, if you go looser in the lower area, bet on the fitted upper:
3.-When in doubt, single color
It does not matter if you are very thin, if you are tall, short, have a lot of curves or a large size, the solution to dress in a single color (and not necessarily black) is always a good choice, to be able to add the accessories that best fit you. 4.- Dress in three colors
If the monocolor does not go with you, and it is not a question of going every day dressed in one color without looking like a Parchis component, the great key used by stylists and fashion experts like Olivia Palermo, is to dress in three colors and at least two that they are neutral.
5.- Use strong tones to your advantage
And we continue with the color keys, because they are much more important than you think. It is no longer that one favors you more than another, it is that the way you use them determines the successful result or not of your look. We must use dark and strong tones in our favor:
If you have a wider lower body area, bet on the most marked tones and prints on the upper part:
And vice versa, if you want to enhance the lower one, give color to that area and bet on the contrasting neutral:
6.- The power of vertical stripes
See that there are urban legends about the clothes that feel best, but this is one of the few that is not. It is a proven fact that vertical stripes lighten the silhouette and stylize it. And it’s a trick that works for all body types. 7.- Choose shoes in nude colors
Although the black ones are the most famous, the reality is that the ones that look best with almost all looks are nude, the closest thing to the natural tone of your skin. Just as black gives a radical cut on your skin (especially in spring when you go without stockings), the lighter ones harmonize the silhouette.
8.- Layers and more layers
And by layers we don’t mean garment on garments, but rather play with the textures and lengths of the clothes. If you go with jeans and a t-shirt, add a long jacket, a kaftan or a kimono that is also quite long and check the result.
9.- Raise (a little) the shot of the clothes
We are not in favor of wearing all clothes with a high waist, because in jeans, for example, it can have the opposite effect on pronounced hips. However, in cloth pants, our bet is always to raise it a little to mark the waist. And it works for both wide upper and lower area.
10.- It’s not the length of your skirt, it’s the fall Contrary to popular belief, midi and long skirts are perfect for all body types. The thinnest should opt for pleats and flared, and those with more curves should opt for stiffer fabrics and straight silhouettes. And very important, that the midi skirt reaches just two hands above the ankle and the long one covers the feet almost completely.
11.- The ankles in sight
Be careful, we do not say capri or pirate, for a stylized pants, the perfect height is, according to the experts, two fingers above the ankle bone.
12.- An American that stylizes
You cannot join the oversize trend if you want to stylize your final look. It is something obvious. According to the stylists, it must fit on your shoulders and attention, very very important, the sleeve must fall exactly on the wrist (where the fashionista in the photo is wearing it folded).
13.- The belt is THE KEY
If there is an accessory that you must have as the protagonist of your outfits, that is the belt. Because if you put it on a jacket, it marks the waist, without adding it to your jeans, it enhances curves, without adding it to a very straight dress, magic.
14.- Show the instep
It seems incredible that it is such a small detail and so important for the final look. The definitive trick for your silhouette to lengthen and appear more harmonious, no matter your size, is that the shoes are open at the instep.
