Style Tip: How To Accentuate Your Figure

People come in all shapes and sizes, and not everyone can fit into one style format. With the different body types, there are different outfits that can either bring the best or worst out of your figure. Don’t just follow influencers and wear whatever is in vogue. You have to dress for your body. Here are a few tips and tricks you can use to accentuate your figure and your best features.


1. Accentuating your breasts

If you want to accentuate your chest, the classiest way is a deep U-shape scoop neckline. The obvious is a plunging V-neck, but a deep scoop is also an innocently fashionable way to reveal some plump cleavage. Another neat trick is to wear an off-shoulder top with a neckline that goes straight across your chest.


Stay away from tops with too many frills or knick-knacks. You want your chest area to look attractive, not cluttered.


2. Accentuating your waist

If you want an outfit to flatter your waist, you want to build above and below your waist. If you are curvy, a tight tailored body-con dress will show off your hourglass shape.


But if you’re looking for everyday separates, it’s best to wear jeans or trousers that are high-waisted, just to your waistline, and a top that meets at that same point. The contrast in the fabrics will meet at the small of your waist and show off your figure.


3. Accentuating your legs

If you want to accentuate your legs, it’s always best to wear something high-waisted. By extending the length of the pants, it will give the illusion of an even longer leg. It can be a loose fit or tight; you just want them to look long. Also, if you are doing shorts or skirts, this is the time for minis.


4. Accentuating your hips

If you want to accentuate your hips, it’s important that the line is continuous around them. A mini skirt will just look like a wide block, whereas the best for this illusion is to extend the line above and below your hips.


A longer length body-con skirt, dress, or high-waisted fitted jeans will help create an hourglass around your curves because it draws it in above to your small waist, and below to your knees, showing off the natural hip curves.


5. Accentuating your behind

If you want to accentuate your but*, style yourself in looks that emphasise your waist and your legs. This means that the smaller your waist looks, the bigger your rear will look. It is also important that the fabric comes in under your b**t, so a wide leg pant won’t be the best option. Instead, try pencil skirts, fitted jeans, and body-hugging fabrics.
