Dress to Focus on Your Assets

When you shop do you judge your body? Hmmmm… do you? Do you have a particular body part you like more than others? Is there any part of your body you absolutely love?

Or are you thinking; now Sheila, you’ve gone out on a limb – I’m more concerned about hiding my body parts? I say, “What if, you were aware of ALL your physical assets, felt really good about them AND knew how to bring them out, wouldn’t that be freeing?” I believe that everyone has physical assets – lots! It’s just a matter of naming and claiming them.

Here are just a few assets you might have and how to make them shine:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely Legs:

 1. Wear the black/red print skirt an inch or two above the knee to show the most shapely part of your legs. Wear shoes with a low vamp to extend the legs.

2. An ankle length skirt with a side slit is better for those who aren’t comfortable in skirts above the knee but want to show a glimpse of their lovely legs.

3. This skirt is for the gal who also wants to accentuate her waist as well as her legs. This shape skirt is best worn at the knee and gives lots of room for movement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beautiful Shoulders: 

Show off your shoulders with strapless and off- the shoulder tops and dresses. If you live in a warm climate you can do this all year but in a cooler climate take advantage of every chance you get. A deep V will also bring attention to your shoulders, i.e. the blue print and the orange dress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wonderful Hips:

If your hips are your chosen body part, bring attention to them with belts. Wear an attention getting belt with your jeans or a chain belt over your tops and with a skirt. Don’t forget great fitting jeans and the flattering cut of a wrap skirt.

What other assets are you hiding? Do you have lovely skin, a defined back, beautiful eyes, elegant hands, luscious hair? The list is a long as the number of body parts.  Start today by focusing on what you like ( you probably will find more to like than you think) and you’ll feel much better.

 

The Best Undergarments to Shape, Contour & Boost

Clothes do more than keep you warm – they have the power to create illusions. What you’re wearing is either making you appear smaller or bigger; younger or older; sexy or drab.  The style and shape of your clothing ( ie flare vs straight skirt, v-neckline vs  crew neckline, cap sleeves or 3/4 sleeves) and how well it is suited to your body shape (the two should be in alignment) is very important in how your body appears.

However, your undergarments set the stage. Undergarments are very important in making subtle touches such as creating a slimmer waist, a trim behind or a more curvaceous figure. So before you get dressed invest in undergarments to create a good foundation.

Here are a few pieces that you will need to get you started:

To minimize a large chest choose a minimizing bra that provides extra support and also looks appealing. If you have a large bust, to appear more youthful your bust line should be halfway between your shoulder and elbow. A sagging bust is aging.

To slim legs hold in belly, behind, hips and legs wear a body shaper or stretchy slip to hide bumps and create a smooth look. The type you choose depends on what you’re wearing. The undergarment shouldn’t be visible through your clothes.

To slim the middle area and create curves wear a corset.

Look Great in T-shirts and Sweaters wear bras that have molded cups so there are no visible seams and lace showing.

Peeking Straps are a no-no. Wear a camisole with a built in underwire bra. It is great for lift and you won’t have to worry about peeking straps. Or wear a racer back (for tanks with high cut sleeves) or strapless.
