Let's talk about assets...our assets and how to make the most of them. Baring skin is a tried and tested trick for drawing the eye - but remember to keep it classy and stay classy. Invest in a good support system and nothing so tight it creates visible muffin top or boob bulge under your blouse or shirt. Turn up the heat on your terms. Sophia Loren said "style must be adapted to the woman and not vice versa"
What stands between you and looking like a superstar are tough decisions. Choosing luxury materials and fabrics that elegantly contour or hint at your curves are the best choice. Expensive? Yes, but well worth the investment. Bare arms are super stylish and strapless is not off limits, providing you have invisible support.
Great style is about diversion tactics no matter what your size or figure, that means steering the eye to what you want to show off and away from the rest. The goal is getting your top-to-toe look in proportion. Whether its the latest trends, its up to you to tailor your outfit to your body.
There are no perfect colours to downsize your silhouette, but in general dark colours and solid-colour palettes are best to minimise areas you are not so in love with. Don't forget the power of "naked"...naked arms, legs and bare shoulders will literally "air" out your look.
Everyone know's that the street is life's real runway...here we can excel in being inventive, chic and ourselves. I like to refer to this as Runway to Realway.
Diane von Furstenburg's advises - Animal prints are best. They are fun, feline and move with the body, accentuating all of the right curves. The best advice ever...
