Prioritize Your Top [Lookbook]
Looking for ways to flatter your upper half? Take a look at these strategies to get curve-conscious ideas.
Central focus and contours draw the eye in to enhance your core allure.
The surplice neckline balances round facial features and adds length to face, neck, while also flattering all figures.
Vertical Lines Rule!
A slender necklace, a line of trim, a long, thin hemline- subtle choices like these actually create a leaner appearance to the eye.
Draw Focus Upward
Draw focus upward with anything that adds detailing at the neckline; it helps to balance your body and accents your face.
Prioritize Your Top
One of the easiest ways to draw focus away from your hips is to attract attention to your upper body. Try wearing a flashy and decorative top that is bursting with vibrant colors. Or wear a shiny necklace, which can draw emphasis to your face.
The cap sleeve is very popular among women’s fashion trendsetters, and with good reason! This sleeve is very short and hangs over the shoulder without extending underneath the arm. It’s widely found in t-shirts and blouses but can also be used in dresses and tunics. The cap sleeve allows for more room so it’s great if you’re active throughout the day so you won’t feel restricted. It’s also very flattering style for people of all body shapes because it isn’t too tight on the arm.
Rather than focus on curvy areas for flattery, enhance them by focusing on opposite places. Curvy hips? Draw the eye to the upper half. Too curvy on top? Try lighter colors below, or apparel with slight flare. “Opposite focus” creates pleasing symmetry and graceful lines.
