1. Wear the Flare!
Fitted jeans with a distinct flare at the bottom, create the illusion of a longer leg and can be used with a waist length top. Remember to have the hem of the pants hit the top of the heels that you’re rocking that day!
2. More Maxi Skirts Please!
A well-cut maxi skirt can give the appearance of looking taller. Choose a solid version that skims the length of your body to create a long vertical line. ( keep your top fitted, of course) Have the hemline go as long as you can go, without tripping, and have wedges or heels underneath.
3. Low Cut Vamp
Vamp is the portion of the shoe that cuts across your foot at the front or the base of the toes. Instantly elongate your legs with a low cut vamp, and for the mile-long legs, find a pair of flesh-toned heels.
4. Wear V-Neck Blouses…
Tops with plunging v-necks give the illusion of a longer, leaner torso. so keep this in mind when shopping for this season’s tops…
5. Wear all one color…
This is a trick for all body types to look chic and give a long vertical illusion. When dressing monochromatically, your outfit has one uninterrupted line from head to toe that elongates your silhouette, making you appear slimmer and taller than you actually are.
Have fun and try out these tips when shopping with us girls at Vintage Vogue! See you soon!
It’s happened to us all before. You have an important party or event to attend and you simply don’t feel like going because you don’t feel you look your best. This usually is an issue when you’re meeting with people that haven’t seen you in some time or meeting someone where landing a good first impression is crucial. The experience itself can make any one selfconcious but add a bad haircut, an extra five pounds, or a lack of a stylish ensemble, and you have a recipe for a party pooper.
But there’s no need to avoid the party all together. We’ve come up with some great tips to turn around any to-be sour party moments.
1. Draw attention to your best features.
While you may be completely focused on your “bad” haircut, make others notice your beautiful statement earrings or smoky eye make up. Pin up shorter layers to help those features steal the show.
2. Wear comfortable clothes that fit your shape.
Yes, ideally we would have lost those extra five pounds by the party date, but unfortunately it’s not always possible. Instead of squeezing into a tight dress that might make others realize you’ve put on a little weight and make you feel self conscious all night, wear something that fits to the point where you feel comfortable and able to breathe. Usually comfort can turn in to confidence and confidence translates to beauty in others’ eyes.
3. Accesorize, accesorize, accesorize!
Didn’t have time to run to the store for this season’s latest trend? Don’t stress. Run to your closet and find a classic look for the event your attending (something that you can’t pinpoint to a certain year). Now think of accesories that will help make the ensemble look more modern. If you don’t currently own any, run to favorite jewelry store already dressed and ask for a store associate to help you find something that will “pop”. As we all know, it’s much easier and quicker to shop for accesories than it is for a new outfit and being already dressed will help you see the “whole” picture.
We hope this blog has you soon feeling like a million bucks. Put these suggestions in to play and you’ll be ready to party in no time!
