One sugar cube soaked in your favourite liqueur and a dash of Agnostura bitters before being topped up with fine French bubbles – and a Champagne Cocktail are you! And when it comes to serving it, such effervescence should only be offered in the time-honoured receptacle that concentrates those bubbles on your nose – the flute!
But that’s off topic…
Do you wear the same size top and bottom? Have little waist definition and a small bust? Is your waist between 2.5cm and 16cm smaller than your bust? If so, then break out the Bollinger – you’re a flute!
The general rule is to keep your silhouette uncluttered with clean lines, so… try a crop jacket and skirt.
You can also use clothing to create curves for you.
Try a waisted jacket like in this illustration . When mixed with leggings it makes your silhouette look quite curvy.
The pencil skirt acts to make you look curvier in the bottom and looks great when teamed with this cropped jacket. The jacket having shoulder pads creates a broader shoulder line, again helping to break up your straight line figure.
Other bottoms that you can wear and look amazing in are wide leg pants and tulip skirts.
You can add belts but the aim is to give you definition and make your waist look smaller so go with fine dark belts. Look at the image on the left; same outfit but with the belt tie she looks curvier.
Avoid creating straight lines. In the illustration with the black cardigan, it is too long and when combined with the straight pants it kills the curves you are wanting to create!
Or, if you want to wear a wide belt, ensure it goes over something that will give you curves likes this shirt dress.
Additionally, you can use interesting design lines to create the illusion of curves as seen in this picture of Gwyneth
Try and not add bulk to your waist. In this case, the baby-doll top under the bust disguises the narrow waist and adds volume to the biggest part of the body. That’s a no-no!
When this is combined with ¾ leggings it makes your proportions look like you are wearing maternity clothes.
Avoid skirts or pants with high waist bands they tend to emphasize your straightness.
Fitted tops look good as long as they don’t emphasize your shoulders. A way to add definition or curves to your bust is with a good push up bra.
Avoid bulky pleated, fussy or busy styles like the latest harem pants.
These style guidelines are general.
