In a world of ever-changing trends, knowing what to wear to flatter your shape can be a challenge. The key is to know your proportions, and use fashions to accentuate your best features, and hide everything else are as follows:-

Identify your body type
One way to define a woman's body type is by how her curves connect her bust, waist, and hips. There are four general body types

Apple - top-heavy-if you have this body type, you probably want to emphasize your tight legs and butt, draw attention away from your waist and shoulders/arms (wear long sleeves), and draw attention to your bust and neck (e.g. v-necks).
Straight/rectangular - if you have this body type, you can "pinch" your waist and exaggerate curves to avoid looking lanky or boyish. Go for ruffles and frills to add texture and volume (and femininity) to your figure. Steer clear of baggy jeans and track clothes if you don't want to look boyish.
Pear - bottom-heavy-if this is your body type, there are things you can do to make your hips and butt look slimmer.
Hourglass - if you're one of the lucky few with this body type, dress to flatter - not flatten - your beautiful curves.

Draw attention to your waist with belts and dresses that pinch at the mid-section.

 If you have a straight shape, this is a must because it'll create the illusion of curves. If you have a pear or hourglass shape, this will accentuate your existing curves

·         If you're apple-shaped or straight-shaped, choose flared pants over straight-leg or skinny pants. It adds more "shape" to a straight body and it helps balance out wide shoulders and/or a heavy upper body. Stock up on miniskirts and bright tights to make the most of your great legs.
·         If you're pear-shaped and you are short (or have short legs), wear straight-leg or slightly flared pants with heels. Skinny pants that hug your ankles can make your lower body take on the appearance of an upside-down triangle. Flared pants can make your legs look very thick, perhaps bowl-legged, in comparison to your upper body.
·         Wear clothes with patterns that go down your body (especially your legs) and not across
Shape your bust.

 If you have an apple or hourglass shape, you probably have an ample bust; your main concern should be to wear a supportive bra so that your chest looks perky, not droopy. Stock up on V-neck dresses and tops - they're super flattering on big-busted girls.

If you don't want to draw attention to your chest, stay away from necklaces and wear chunky bangles instead. You should also wear plain colors around your bust and go for patterned and colorful bottoms instead.
If you have a straight or pear shape, wearing a push-up bra to add curves up top might not be a bad idea.
 If you have a 
flat stomach and aren't shy about showing it, cropped tops will make your chest look a little bigger in relation to your waist.

Choose your colors and patterns wisely.
If there are any curves, handles, or lumps that you'd prefer to hide, wear solid dark colors (black, navy, dark purple) over them. Wear bright colors or patterns on your hot spots to draw attention away from your trouble spots!

Draw attention away from unwanted curves by enhancing a feature that is further away or you can cover it with dark colors.

Be comfortable

This is by wearing what you feel most comfortable in for confidence. And make sure that your clothes fit properly. Clothes that are too tight or too big will not necessarily make you look better.

Remember, just because you have an hour-glass figure doesn't mean you have to wear clothes that make you blush. If a neckline is too deep, or if a hemline is too short, leave those clothes on the rack.
Comfortable clothing will make you feel better and make you more confident. Consider all your options.


Hello Dolls,
Hope you had yourselves a lovely weekend like me. So, looking great comes along with much hard work input, regardless of the occasion. Below are a few tips on how to keep that glowing look.

a cleansing routine

 Twice a day with your optimal product will fight many of the most common skin problems and leave your face feeling healthy and looking great. Blemishes on your face can be combated by either the use of a product or an organic solution. Deciding which to use really depends on your skin type and acne severity. More sensitive skin may need a gentler product, while less sensitive skin may require a harsher product to see results. For those who prefer an organic method, lemon juice, dandelion sap, honey, and other materials have proven to work as well.

 Facial hair protection

 This ensures a fine facial structure and clean look. Keep your eyebrow lines neat, upper lip hair and chin hair groomed. To trim eyebrows or help from a professional who can wax or pluck your eyebrows. f you want to do it yourself, take a wash cloth soaked in hot water and press it onto the area where you are about to remove the hair. Then remove the few stray hairs with tweezers. Do this every night before bed for best results.

If you have dry skin, you really need to make sure that your face is getting the moisture it needs. Use a gentle moisturizer to keep your skin feeling soft and glowing.

 Drink lots of water

Your body needs plenty of hydration during the day to keep removing wastes and oils from your face. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

Don't touch your face

 Many people have bad habits of messing with acne or leaning their face on their hands. Your hands have oils on them that will clog pores, increasing blemishes. No matter how tempting it might be, don't pop pimples or interfere with anything facial- though it may seem like it will make it better, it actually makes it much worse and instead of dealing with a two day pimple you now have a two week long project. A tip here is changing your pillow case often- the oils linger on the fabric, getting on your face during the night.

Attention on the Lips

 Use a lip hydrator often and make sure to moisturize your lips. A simple way to do this is to rub a sugar-and-water solution on them and then moisturize, as the sugar removes dead cells and rejuvenates the lips. Keep a stick of lip moisturizer on you at all times and use throughout the day. Be careful not to use too much Chap Stick though. Your lips can literally get addicted to the chemicals that prevent/heal chapped lips; they will stop making that chemical themselves, and it's a painful addiction to break!

Protect your face from the sun.

 Ultraviolet rays will damage your skin over time and it's essential that you protect your face from harmful radiation. Use a good sunscreen or makeup with sunscreen in it, even a little, before going out, and you will have fresh, healthy skin. Another way to protect yourself is to wear clothing that will cover you, like a hat.
