WHAT LOOKS BEST ON YOUR BODY.

WHAT LOOKS BEST ON YOUR BODY.

There is a big difference in choosing pieces that you like, on the “hanger”, and choosing pieces that you like, on “you”.

Twenty years in the dressing room at Nordstrom with clients has taught me so much. It may surprise you, but even the most beautiful of them all, would like to improve something about their appearance. I’m not claiming to be a fairy godmother, but I do have tips and tricks of plenty.

Here are a few you can apply whether your shopping in a store, online, or in your closet. It boils down to working with what you’ve got and faking the rest. Let me show you.

Draw Lines On your body.

Use construction details like darts, seams, and gathering to direct the eye.

Princess seams define the bust line and narrow the waist

Narrow your waist with asymmetrical and wrap styles that can pull the eye accross the body to your desired waist.

Look longer and leaner by creating vertical lines. The easiest way to do this is wearing all one color.

Never 50/50.

Pay attention to details like where a hems ends and start
and stop.

Negative space isn’t always negative.

For example, if your broad or busy, open necklines are flattering. Contrarily, a petite frame or small bust can look emaciated inside too much negative space created in an open neckline.

Never underestimate the right shoe.

Nude shoes for the win. They go with everything and magically thin and elongate you. Matching your hem line to your shoes can also have the same effect.
